“I am not going to tell you what to do. You are Freed to Lead.” - FIB

Those words from FIB, shared with Dilly Dilly, inspired and confirmed what many suspected in F3 Naperville. It was time to grow. 

We’ve learned as a region that the success of F3 Naperville was built on proximity between men and AO’s.  As Naperville continues to expand this begins to loosen and presents a unique opportunity to rise up to meet the needs of men.

After careful consideration the excitement and vision grew and in a few short weeks F3 Crossroads was born.  F3 is not about keeping what we have bottled up, F3 is about paying it forward.  F3 is about giving what each of us has found to as many people and  as many communities as we can possibly reach.  For many of us, F3 has changed our lives, has changed the men we are, and the men we want to become.  Our ambition should not be to hold on to that but give it to as many other men as possible. We bleed F3 Naperville so the creation of this new region is not a splitting of men but something far greater.

Our mission is our name.  F3 Crossroads mission is to maintain the high standards of excellence instilled in us by F3 Naperville in all areas of Fitness/Fellowship/Faith with the ambition that our home base in Plainfield, IL will serve as the CROSSROADS to plant, grow, and serve local communities from Naperville to Central/Southern IL and beyond.

Humbly your Crossroads LT 1.0,

Why do we call it G2? Cause that's what F3 calls Information. Read on for this months Information!

Completely Stupid And Utterly Pointless - at it's finest!

CSAUP is defined as “…something we do not in spite of their difficulty, stupidity and pointlessness, but because of those things.” (Freed to Lead, p. 106)

F3 ENC Crossbones hosted this year's CSAUP Sasquatch, 10 miles of rucking or running, combined with five 10 minute workouts. 5 runner specific workouts AND 5 rucker specific workouts. F3 Nation was invited to participate and submit times for this partner-oriented event. Much hate was given for the absolute smoke-fest of a workout. 

F3 Naperville brought the muscles and the heart, and with 5 of the top 10 finishers, took
1st PLACE IN THE NATION with Smokey and Muggsy!!!

Here is the list:

Muggsy / Smokey
FIB /Ball Boy
Uncle Rico / BabyHands
Vern /Dilly Dilly
Blues Clues

Congrats to everyone who finished this crazy event!!


The price of admission of F3 is taking on the leadership of a workout - TIME TO Q. This is where we apply the learnings of accelerating. If you haven't yet signed up to Q, and you're looking to post up your VQ (Virgin Q) - get in touch with a PAX who you see lead regularly. 

Stay safe, stay healthy, and don't get up for easy.
