F3 Naperville proudly introduces the beginning of Black Diamond bootcamps!

Say, whaaaaaaat?!

Sit down, put some Aminos on ice, and check it out. Here's the deal:
What: Black Diamond Workouts WILL BE next level challenging. Above and beyond the traditional Bootcamp. You could liken this to a Spartan Ultra, in lieu of a regular Spartan.

Why: We have reached a point in our expansion that suggests a divergence of available workout levels is necessary and welcomed by the PAX.  There are enough PAX at different stages of their 1stF journey which now suggest we provide an opportunity for periodical advanced level workouts. Let it be known: Any PAX can still join any workout. However there is an understanding that these Black Diamond Bootcamps will challenge the PAX on another level. The other ~30 Bootcamps throughout the week will remain as challenging as they have been to date and should continue to push the PAX to the edge and past their limits.

WhoPAX who feel they are ready to participate in, and Q, this type of a Bootcamp. Participating PAX will understand that there will be minimal six-covering (*unless there’s an injury or unsafe situation obviously). This is almost never really a place for an FNG.

WhenBeginning the week of Feb 10th, there will be one weekly workout on the East side of the region and one weekly workout on the West side of the region. 0500 start time, 0600 end time.

WhereRotating among Iron Lion/Dark Tower/The Complex ("East") and Outpost/The Ridge/Citadel/Black Panther ("West") weekly. Look for weekly Pre-Blasts to learn of location and Q assignment.

HowPAX attend Black Diamond Workouts similar to normal workouts. East and West Site Q's (Baby Hands and FIB, respectively) will initially shoulder tap a prospective Q when an open Q time opens up. There will eventually be open sign-up on the Q Sheet. AAR will be performed every time, generally immediately following CoT.

BLACK DIAMONDS will be difficult. Participants should expect that covering at least 3 miles over the duration of one of these beatdowns will most likely be the standard. There will be minimal rest. There will be maximum work and effort. You will have butterflies when you go to sleep the night before. You will feel like a CHAMP come 0600 when you finish. F3Naperville is here to challenge what you think is your normal and what you think is your standard. Now may be the time to disrupt what you think is your 1stF Standard. This is one stepping stone in doing so for your 1stF #Acceleration.

#TClaps to the outgoing Leadership Team 2.0 for their service over the past year. Their commitment to helping F3 Naperville be the best region in F3 Nation, combined with their vision of "sustainable excellence at scale," was unwavering during their time at the helm. From their Day 1 they committed to maintaining everything their predecessors had built and grown from the ground up, while also setting their own goals to keep F3 Naperville on the upward trajectory it was on. They set goals. Crushed everything single one of them and then some.

Today, F3 Naperville stands in a stronger place than when they started. For that, all of us PAX should be grateful! Continue to post ITG, step up and Lead when the opportunity presents itself, do the difficult things that need to be done, keep Q'ing, keep EH'ing, and be relentless in your pursuit of being High Impact Men. 
Rest in Peace, Noonan
