FiA Greenville / F3 Golden Strip convergence

  • Workout Date - 04/17/2018
  • Q In Charge - Benign
  • The PAX - 22 strong (see below)
  • AO - Golden Strip

Last month, Regroup (one of the high-impact ladies of FiA Greenville) suggested that FiA converge with the men of F3.  Realizing that any outside influence would be positive for the men of F3 Golden Strip, YHC jumped at the opportunity.  13 Golden Strippers (oops), 1 PAX from Fort Mill (welcome, Maximus!), and 6 ladies from FiA, not realizing that today was not April 17th but January 107th (check the weather), left the warm fartsack behind in favor of fitness, fellowship, and faith.


PAX: Fia Hamm (FiA), Pixel (FiA), Regroup (FiA), Felix (FiA), Where’s Waldo (FiA), One More (FiA), Courtesy Flush, Road Trip, Church Lady (respect), Lt. Dangle, Look Out Below, Cocoon, Pine Tar, Gymboree (respect), Whisper (respect), Elmer, Fred, Nature Boy (respect),  Ron Swanson, Cyclone, Maximus (F3 Fort Mill), YHC

CONDITIONS: 31 degrees, dark



The mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve men’s small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.

The mission of FiA is to make each other stronger in all areas of our lives.


DISCLAIMER: No one would mistake YHC for a professional.

This month marks 19 months that YHC has been involved in F3.  YHC is forever grateful for the EH’ing of his good friend Sammy who persisted until YHC posted for the first time 9/23/2016.  Like most men involved in F3, YHC did not know how badly he needed F3 until he actually came out and became a regular.  YHC was a potted plant- a sad clown- and did not even know it.  How many men and women live and work among us who need what we have with F3 and FiA?  Men in particular live lonely existences with few real friends, but a group like this provides an easy and low-pressure way to get involved in the lives of others.  YHC’s challenge this week is to identify someone who needs what we have and give it away.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.   For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!   Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone?   And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

As always, it was a pleasure to lead.
