I am not a professional and you’re here on your own free will. Push yourself but don’t hurt yourself. Modify if necessary. Should you hurt yourself then look no further than Ringwald. He will carry you to your car.

Teams switch, then Rinse and repeat for three rounds of the Real Deal Holyfield (named in honor of a good buddy who coined the phrase and will surely be a F3 regular but doesn’t know it yet).

There’s just one shot at a VQ so YHC chose to give the PAX the real deal. It’s been quite a road to F3 and I’m thankful for guys like Prosciutto encouraging me to give it another go after the unsuccessful soft launch in 2014. You never know what your fellow man is going through but it’s a safe assumption that F3, a community of men pushing each other to get better, can’t hurt.
After choosing to leave West Point at 18 my direction, drive and desire to pursue God seemed to stay behind. Somehow a great group of college friends, an incredible wife, kids and job miraculously fell into my lap. I took it all for granted and used alcohol as some escape for the better part of a decade. There were highs and lows but it took nearly losing it all to finally wake up. After years of healing (and a weight loss bet that awakened a desire to get in shape and stay that way) I find those things are starting to return. Life is short and I’m thankful to spend more time seeking the Lord and leading my family than wasting it looking behind.
