Thanks so much for including F3! I’ve been participating in F3 workouts since October 2017 and have really enjoyed them. They are challenging for everyone, but designed in a way that you can jump in no matter what your fitness level is and modify to work for you. Plus you can’t beat free! :)
For this coming Saturday (Jan 13, 2018), all of the local F3 workouts are combining into a large “convergence” workout at Doty Park in Summerville to celebrate the 3-year anniversary of F3 being launched in Summerville. So there won’t be anyone meeting at Danny Jones this Saturday. However, everyone is welcome to come to the convergence workout – we love having new guys! :) It starts at 7am.
