About F3

The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

F3 Intro

F3 — our three Fs stand for Fitness, Fellowship and Faith — traces its roots to a free, participant-led boot camp workout held on Saturday mornings at a Charlotte, N.C., park since 2006. The leaders of F3 launched their first Saturday workout on 1/1/11, on the campus of A.G. Middle School in Charlotte.F3ENC logo - white

ENC Crossbones was started by The Closed Hand in the Summer of 2014 with weekly workouts on Saturdays. Early 2015, The Closed Hand heard of Papa Smurf who was organizing workouts on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. The two got together, then contacted F3 and were launched by F3 Raleigh on Saturday, February 21, 2015. On Saturday, July 30, 2016 at our Second Annual Sasquatch (home grown CSAUP), OBT declared us a Region.
