No matter how bad a situation may appear
or how difficult a task may seem,
we will get through it.
Whatever it is will pass
and life will go on.
…It really is ‘just a ride’
and when we choose to see life for what it is,
we free ourselves to truly live free.
If you’re not enjoying life,
then you are on the wrong path, my friend.
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 co-founders of F3 are David Redding, “Dredd,” and Tim Whitmire, “OBT,” who launched their first Saturday workout on 1/1/11 on the campus of A.G. Middle School in Charlotte.
Our mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
“What is F3?” and all official podcasts are also available on iTunes.
OUR CORE PRINCIPLES
F3 workouts …
- Are free of charge
- Are open to all men
- Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
- Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
- End with a Circle of Trust
Goodness is the only investment that never fails.
Henry David Thoreau
The time is always right to do what is right.
Martin Luther King, Jr
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.
Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value.
Learn to do what is good. Seek justice. Correct the oppressor. Defend the rights of the fatherless. Plead the widow’s cause.”
Turn away from evil and do what is right! Strive for peace and promote it!
Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.

- I’m stronger because I had to be,
I’m smarter because of my mistakes,
Happier because of the sadness I’ve known,
and now wiser because I learned.
- Every challenge you face today makes you stronger tomorrow.
The challenge of life is intended to make you better, not bitter.
Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, Obstacles, and less than perfect conditions,
So what? Get started now.
With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger,
more and more skilled, more and more self-confident,
and more and more successful.
