About Us

How F3 Began

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.

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

Our Story

The history of F3 Durham and Chapel Hill dates back to 2012 and 2013, respectively when Riggs founded Durham and Adolphus founded Chapel Hill. We have operated as Churham since the spring of 2014 and that growth since then has been tremendous.
