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

COVID-19 F3 Nation Response

F3 Dallas Nantan Oatmeal’s Response
Brothers, the day has come that I had hoped would not get here. Monday,  March 23, at midnight, we will be forced to shelter at home in Dallas County. This means beginning Tuesday we will either continue accelerating virtually or sink back into being Sad Clowns when we can least afford to be.

It is now that we will need to be leaders of our families and ourselves. Staying strong and leading by example. I will encourage you all to join the virtual workouts that we will hold daily from the confines of your house/yard or garage. Ultra has graciously volunteered his video collaboration site.  also implore you all to step up and Q a workout during this time. Consistency in routine will be paramount now that we are confined to our homes for the foreseeable future. It will be very easy to backslide, but I, along with the other PAX are counting on your accountability!

We must continue to accelerate in all three F’s while apart, and do not hesitate to reach out to your fellow PAX. We need each other more than ever as these are truly uncertain times. Suggest a Zoom meetup, text a fellow PAX, post your idea to help out in the community! #isolatedbutnotseparated #coronavirus #isi

I look forward to seeing you all in person again in the Gloom very soon! In the meantime, I’ll see you online and if you have any questions, please contact me.

Q Source Groups are a great place to learn and explore the leadership philosophy of F3. We meet to improve our leadership skills for the benefit of our families, workplaces and neighborhoods. The philosophies are based on timeless principles, they are also useful for any group that wants to improve the leadership skills of its members.

As Texas weather is never typical, know we do workout outdoors and our weather policy is…
1. We don’t cancel for cold, wind, or rain. If possible, we defy the forecast and POST!
2. We don’t mess with lightning. Lightning will kill you. If there’s lightning, we will relocated, cancel, or ENDEX.
3. Check Twitter for updates before the workout.

Protect Your Six With A Shield Lock

PAX: Alright Alright, Ina, Sally, Walmart

QIC: Walmart

AO: Chick-Fil-A on Hillcrest.

4 PAX gathered for a Q Source dinner at Chick-Fil-A to discuss a critical Brick that a HIM must lay to accelerate: the Shield Lock. All PAX were very open about the lack of Shield Locks in the lives of most men, including their own. True Shield Locks are rare, but invaluable. Ina noted that men putting on a show for others of being OK is a barrier to forming a Shield Lock. PAX were hungry to have Shield Locks in their own lives. Alright Alright posed questions on how PAX could kickstart Shield Locks in F3 Dallas. Sally made the point that an ideal Shield Lock should be somewhat organic, and shared his own recent positive experience of becoming vulnerable with other men.

The Shield Lock’s prime purpose must always be kept in focus: protecting each other’s Sixes and helping each other accelerate. A HIM is less likely to get swept away in the Flux if he has a Shield Lock to keep him stable.
