HUGE SPRING into 2021!

F3 consists of groups of men, working together, giving 100% of their effort to their team, chasing a common goal, which is to be their best. Us as a team, F3 Naperville, we work and live not just for ourselves but for something greater, something bigger. Living third is what this is all about! - Roach Coach, Nant'an, Convergence March 20, 2021

WHAT a start to 2021. We're already shaking off the last of the winter cold and jumping right into the cool, wet, spring of 2021. AND SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED for F3!

Excited for all the growth taking place, the solidification of our the leadership team, the movement to keep accelerating with PAX involved in various races, competitions, service projects, and convergences throughout the winter. Take a look below!



~ LT 4.0

Roach Coach - Nant'an
Wet Wipe - 1stF Q
Rusty - 2ndF Q
Ronda Rousey - 3rdF Q
Goldberg - Weasel Shaker
Tonka - CommzQ
Flush - Growth Q


MAKE AMERICA BURPEE AGAIN





94,436





That's the total amount of burpees tracked and completed by F3 Naperville in the month of January. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. 

That's just a smattering example of the kind of CSAUP that takes place here at F3 Naperville. Led by Disco Ball (ye of Crossroads fame) with 10,000 of his own (but not tracked for F3N) Rusty brought in the guns with a total of 7,705 of his own, closely followed by Today with 7,111 of his own. Let's just point out both are over 50 years old. BOOM.


Concierge Services Still moving - Literally!
 

F3 Naperville created a free, personalized, homebound concierge service to grocery shop, pickup prescriptions, and provide other services for those in need in our communities.

We've been privileged to serve West Suburban Community Pantry, Will County Senior Services, and Loaves and Fishes with food donations and food drop off. This winter we added Hesed House and Love Your Neighbor to the mix of opportunities to help change lives. The support is amazing and we're honored to serve!

PASSING THE LEADERSHIP FLAG
03.2021


It is again with the deepest gratitude and great excitement we announce the final “flag passing” for LT3.0.
 

Again, as stated earlier this year, obviously LT 3.0 faced ridiculous challenges in 2020, and no one on our team had to sacrifice more or work harder than our CommzQ, TPS Report! His contribution to the continued acceleration and success of our region cannot be overstated nor can my gratitude for all he’s done!

Please join me in thanking him and wishing him continued success as he passes his Commz Q Flag to our current 1st F Q, Tonka! 
 

We are just as excited to announce the most recent addition to our LT 4.0!  With a tremendous amount of consideration about how to round out this team we ultimately continued to circle back to this HIM, we initially assumed would not have time for the role.  He unquestionably is the perfect PAX for this position so we asked anyway and we are very excited he accepted. Please help me congratulate Wet Wipe as our 1st F Q for LT 4.0!!!


Naturally, with the Commz transition, the Commz Alumni team couldn’t just leave it to a Slack announcement. Check out the shenanigans below! 

COMMZQ BREAKING NEWS!!!

PALMETTO 200!


Congratulations to these HIM’s (High Impact Man) on their completion of the 200 mile Palmetto Ultra Relay. Way to represent F3 Naperville in first class fashion!

FIB
Ball Boy
Muggsy
Mumbler
Elmer Fudd
Paula Deen

Not only did they cross the finish line they placed 4th with a gun time of 26:25:51.80 and an average pace of 7:49.

To say we’re inspired would be an understatement. All of us are extremely proud of you all. Way to accelerate!

 

THIS IS IT!!! GROWTH!!!!!


Oh man was this winter ON FIRE with growth and acceleration. We're excited to announce the opening of not one, but TWO new AO's for your workout pleasure!!

 
TWO WOLVES
(Wolf's Crossing Community Park, Naperville)

THE BEAR
(Ty Warner Park, Westmont)


So excited to bring to the table these new areas to help build on the success of the original AO Outpost opened 3.5 years ago. This brings locations up to 10, and weekly workouts at 47!!
Check out the schedule for details, and make sure to read the announcements on both!!

CONVERGENCE MARCH 20


One year ago we were in the middle of a shutdown that lasted 61 days. Shovel flags remained stored and PAX used basements and garages to maintain. Since then we have opened 2 new regions, 2 new AOs, raised over $12K For local charities and have welcomed 350 FNGs. Our acceleration has been unmatched and there is NO STOPPING US NOW!

The goal was to have one of the most challenging convergences held in the nation. This would require a team. A team of HIMs that provide beatdowns that are talked about for days/weeks/months after they are held. HIMs that are willing to sacrifice for the group. HIMs that are put in place to keep Tonka on track. House Arrest, Hootie, Wine in a Box, Handy Manny, Blues Clues, Appletini, Parks and Rec answered the call.

Weeks of fine tuning the beatdown led up to the day of reckoning. 83 PAX stepped up and out to IRON LION for the first CONVERGENCE of 2021! Check out the backblast for all the deets!!
