The Sons of Thunder recommend that any and all men participate in a new men’s fitness group in Columbia, called F3. It began a few years ago in Charlotte, NC with a group of guys who started a peer-led early morning workout. Now, there are 22 different locations in 6 states where men of all ages gather for the same reason — Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith.
Here are the 5 Core Principles:
1. Free of charge.
2. Open to all men.
3. Outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold.
4. Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary.
5. Each workout ends with a Circle of Trust (prayer circle).
In Columbia, the weekly workouts are nextdoor to Shandon UMC on Dreher Field on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 5:45am and on Saturdays at 7:00am. Fellowship happens afterwards at Lizard’s Thicket. In Columbia, Flynn Bowie (firstname.lastname@example.org) AKA “Sway” is the contact person. And, by the way, every guy gets an F3 nickname. Join other members of the [SoT] at F3 for a solid workout.
