As mentioned at COT announcements this Sat, F3 co-founder OBT (Tim Whitmire) will Q the Hill Yeah! workout on Sat. March 10th, and will be giving a talk at a Catholic men’s conference that same day titled “Called to Lead” at St. Bart’s Church in San Mateo. And he plans to lead a second workout on Sunday morning March 11th 7am, at the same AO, Hillsdale HS, so that any men inspired by his talk can come experience a F3 workout firsthand.
Freed to Lead: F3 and the Unshackling of the Modern-day Warrior
Tim Whitmire, co-founder of F3 Nation, tells the story of the free men’s workout movement from its origins at a Charlotte, N.C., park more than a decade ago to the present day, with more than 1,350 weekly workouts in 25 states.
F3’s three Fs stand for Fitness, Fellowship and Faith, and Whitmire will discuss how solving men’s need for the first two Fs has unleashed the “dynamite” of the Third F – tens of thousands of men in hundreds of communities across the United States acting with purpose to make their world a better place.
Whitmire will explain how F3’s core principles and counter-cultural community standards are essential to the group’s mission, which is to plant, grow and serve small men’s workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
Note: For conference attendees who would like to experience F3 firsthand, Whitmire will lead workouts on Saturday morning, March 10th, and Sunday morning, March 11th. Both workouts will go from 7-8 a.m. at the Hillsdale High School football field in San Mateo. First-time attendees should simply show up in workout clothes and shoes; if it is cold, you may want gloves. F3’s credo is “We leave no man behind, and we leave no man where we found him,” so do not worry about being able to keep up as the workout is designed to keep the whole group together. The workouts are free and open to all men.
Tim Whitmire grew up in Northern California and is a 1988 graduate of San Francisco University High School. He worked for more than a decade as a reporter for The Associated Press and has held positions with various financial services firms in Charlotte, where he has lived since 2000. He is co-founder and managing partner of The Iron Project, which offers leadership development and training derived from F3 and its sister organization, Females in Action.
