3rd F – Faith. Belief in something bigger than yourself. We have a lot of Christian men in the group and affiliations with churches at different AOs, but it is important that all men feel welcome.

Q discussed “spending” vs “investing”. Spending is a transactional term. You give money to get a thing. Or you give time to get money. It is focused on a deliverable or getting to the next step.

Investing is a relational term. You put money in to an account with a long-term vision. You invest time with your family to build them up. You pour energy into a hobby or skill to improve.

F3 is the same way. You can come spend some time and energy, talk to some guys, and head out. There is nothing wrong with that. But there is another level that can happen at an AO when Qs are spending time developing workouts and the PAX are investing in each other. We have a couple of 3rd-F initiatives across F3 Chattanooga, and you are each encouraged to participate as you can. But we also believe some of the most effective community impact can happen at the AO level with a need seen in the immediate neighborhood that gets addressed by a small group of HIM. If you know of an opportunity for service reach out to an AOQ.


After about 20 seconds of bear crawls the Q left a handy sweat trail to follow on the crawl bears.

The tennis court lines seemed straight at first, but they got blurry and further apart as the beatdown progressed.

Bear crawl suicides were called “maniacal”. Q greatly appreciates this compliment.
