Coronavirus UPDATE 3-27-20

ShieldLock Time UPDATE


Per the governor’s Stay At Home order issued today, F3CapeFear is asking all pax to close all AOs until further notice.  Yes, it is still permitted to gather in small groups of 10 or fewer, and it is permitted to go to our beautiful parks.  The state is also encouraging exercise.  However, we believe closing our official workouts is in the spirit of the Order, and we want to help lead our community in not only honoring the letter of the Order, but the spirit of it as well.

This is where our community kicks into overdrive.  Think shieldlock.  Reach out to the brothers around you and keep them motivated.  Challenge each other to stay the course, in all 3 Fs.  Engage in the Virtual AOs.  Engage in the mumblechatter.  Engage your family, neighbors, co-workers, etc.  Many are struggling financially, emotionally, etc.  As HIM, we can help them.  If you are struggling financially, emotionally, or any other way, reach out.  You have been in the gloom.  You know the pax have your 6.  Let us know how to help.  This our time to shieldlock, and together we will shine. is a free, peer led organization that has small group workouts, outdoors throughout the New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender county area.  We are open to all men, and we workout rain or shine.  We will treat this current obstacle just like the weather.  We can’t change it, but we can adapt and overcome it.  Stay engaged.  Make sure your brothers stay engaged.

Now more than ever, many people will be looking for a community that can offer them outdoor opportunities for fitness.  All of our workouts are outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold.  We believe our culture was evolving towards social isolation long before the coronavirus, and we believe that the fellowship we have within F3 is one cure.  Many people are discovering, perhaps for the first time, that they crave real, face-to-face, community.  F3 will be here to offer that.  Finally, our 3rd F (faith), simply means that we ask our members to believe in something beyond themselves, and that living for others is the way we are to truly live.  There is no faith requirement or view that you must have to join us.  Many of us are Christians, and many are not.  Many people may be reevaluating their faith in the coming months.  We are here to offer encouragement, purpose, and hope to anyone looking for it.  So check out F3 and come get you some Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith – outdoors – for free.
