How F3 is Funded

F3 Nation incurs administrative, legal and website expenses that are covered through partnerships with businesses who support F3’s mission and the sale of gear bearing the F3 logo. Revenues generated in excess of expenses are turned over to the F3 Foundation on an annual basis.


F3 is intended to be led by the PAX, meaning each man who is in F3 should consider himself willing and ready to lead — or “Q,” in F3 parlance — a workout, event, or any other initiative consistent with the mission and core principles of F3.

The growth and dynamism of F3 is seen most clearly at the Regional level, where our Regional Qs lead F3 pax in launching new workouts, thinking up new ways to promote the Second and Third Fs and hatching new ideas for CSAUP (Completely Stupid And Utterly Pointless) F3 Events. Just as the 50 United States have been described as the “laboratories of democracy,” the regions are where F3 innovation takes place.

The co-founders of F3 are David Redding and Tim Whitmire.
