  • F3 Going Strong at Men’s Shelter of Charlotte

    This year, longtime volunteer, Jordan Abshire, launched a weekly boot-camp workout at Men’s Shelter of Charlotte in partnership with F3 Nation (Fitness, Faith and Fellowship). The workout was aptly named Fortitude.

    Jordan viewed the workout as another vehicle to bring a sense of normalcy to guests in a time of disruption in their lives. He connected with John Lambert, who had started a similar F3 workout at Charlotte Rescue Mission…and the rest is history! Click here to read John’s account of the inaugural Fortitude workout.

    Jordan recently noticed something different about the participating guests; an unmistakable new light in their eyes, an energy, and a bounce in their step. Executive Director, Liz Clasen-Kelly, recognized what he was describing and explained: “That Light you saw was Hope.”

    Clear to Jordan was that the goal of the F3 Fortitude workouts was being met when one guest thanked an F3 member after his first workout for “making him feel normal for a little while.”

    Join us any Tuesday at 5:30 am at our Tryon Campus (1210 North Tryon Street). It’s early but it will allow you to connect with our guests in a personal way, on the same level, as teammates struggling and preserving and encouraging each other in the pursuit of better health and fitness.

    Be sure to follow our Tuesday workouts on Twitter, #Fortitude.
