Welcome to F3 Spring Hill’s THE TRAPP. . . I am not a professional, though I do play one on Zoom!
F3 stands for Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith. The Mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve small men’s workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
1st F Disclaimer: Exercise at your own risk and modify as necessary to prevent injury, not to avoid work.
The 5 Core Principles of F3 workouts are: Free of charge, Open to all men, Held outdoors – rain or shine, heat or cold, Peer led in a rotating fashion, Always end in a Circle of Trust.
The F3 Credo is: “Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.”

[STRAIGHT OUTTA Q-SOURCE] The comfort zone (and the need to expand it) is a cultural myth that encourages men to be in-Effective.
…prevailing cultural notion of the Comfort Zone is something quite different from a place of high productivity. Instead, it is the province of those too fearful or selfish to expand their own horizons. This gloomy view of the Comfort Zone is reflected in one of Merriam’s own usage examples: I need expand my comfort zone and try new things. Thus, by implication, the unexpanded Comfort Zone is a narrow and negative thing, something that must be escaped or expanded.
F3’s counterpoint to this view is that not only should a person not depart from their place of highest productivity (where they work with the most ease and familiarity), but that they should actually seek to work more deeply within it. What one (in fact) actually does by voluntarily departing from their place of highest productivity is to risk reducing their IMPACT. Instead, what a man should do is to increase his Skill within his place of highest productivity through Practice.
Missionality is Service in the High Impact Zone. To Live Right, a HIM must exert the majority of his efforts to Serve within his personal HIZ, the boundaries of which are defined by his Mission.
Mission is the course of action taken to achieve an articulated Purpose. The course of action is comprised of the individual Tasks the HIM undertakes to bring his Purpose into fruition. These Tasks are not random, but are the outgrowth of the Skills for which he is most suited, the things that he does with the most ease and familiarity and constantly improves through Practice.
Mark 6: 7-11
Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.
8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. 9 Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”
Take Away: Dispense with the superfluous, men! Focus, sharpen, prepare, find your HIZ!
3rd F Disclaimer – F3 doesn’t prescribe to a particular religion or faith, we ask that you believe in something higher than yourself and respect the faith of the Q.
Take a knee.
Thank you, men, for the honor and privilege…
