“I am not a professional – all exercises are merely a suggestion, please modify as needed. From this point on there is a real risk of injury so please be safe”

Simply mentioning Steinl and encouraging the plank position illicited a few groans and out loud laughing from a few PAX, gotta get warmed up somehow.

Legacy is an idea we often don’t think about until it’s to late. October 9, 2015 I sat in a church for a funeral. My wife’s best friend had just died and I was struck by how one person’s life could fill a room to standing room only. Not only with people who knew her but were greatly influenced by her life and the way she lived.
Today with the start of Stormbreaker is a continuation of something that started that day, for me looking around got me thinking about my own legacy what I had accomplished, who had I touched, how would I be remembered. That day I made a choice to change the trajectory not only for myself but also for my family and everyone else I came in contact with.
F3 has been the most recent step in this process; it has affirmed my belief that men are at their strongest when they work together. Putting in hard work to get better not only affects you but those around you. Whether you are just coming out and trying to keep moving however that looks or you are going to pick up the six. When you get better you make others better. When you lead you show others they can lead. Wait Time stepped out 3 yrs. ago and lead by example, now 1000+ men have followed that lead. Stormbreaker is about stepping into the hard things, picking up the six and building for the future. It’s not just about you but those around you and those who come after you.
Change your legacy today!
