Fellowship

Bonds of genuine friendship formed in the pre-dawn Gloom and strengthened through social gatherings, races, and endurance challenges

Faith

Who Are We?

THE MISSION OF F3 IS TO PLANT, GROW AND SERVE SMALL WORKOUT GROUPS FOR THE INVIGORATION OF MALE COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP.

Our three F's stand for Fitness, Fellowship and Faith.  F3 traces its roots to a free, participant-led boot camp workout held on Saturday mornings at a Charlotte, N.C., park since 2006.  On April 25, 2015, a group of men from Columbia, SC traveled to Jacksonville to give away the gift they had been given, and F3 Jacksonville was born.
