Kevin Mitchell spoke about a relatively new phenomena here in Washington called F3 at this week’s meeting of the Washington (noon) Rotary Club. Mitchell was introduced by Rotary member Ashley Vansant, who is also a member of F3.

Mitchell explained that F3 is comprised of men who meet regularly for physical training sessions and, “The mission of F3 is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.”

“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, North Carolina, park since 2006. The leaders of F3 launched their first Saturday workout on Jan. 1, 2011, on the campus of A.G. Middle School in Charlotte,” Mitchell said.
