The PAX numbered off by threes and split up by group to the three stations.
Divided into groups of three. The PAX were instructed that at each station they will be work their way through an exercise until pushed by the group to advance. At this point they would run to the next station, pushing that group onwards.
The first group began with 40 seconds of Wall Sits to start the push and we were off.

COT: Polaroid spoke to the group about the immediate impact that F3 has made with him. The message centered around Mental Health. All men will eventually face some form of anxiety in their life. It’s how they handle it that makes the difference. Stop waiting for support, go and seek it out! Fear, doubt and worry can all stir anxiety – while it may be inevitable to experience, just a small hurdle. The support of the PAX can be the push that is needed day to day.
