So your buddy keeps talking about F3, and now he’s asking you to go.

Or maybe you’re just looking for a free workout in the area?

We Have 5 Core Principles

Free of Charge

Never a charge to workout, ever.

Open to All Men

No matter the man, you are welcome here.

Held Outdoors

Rain or Shine, Heat or Chill, we are out there.

Peer Led

Men volunteer to lead others in a rotating fashion.

Ends with a COT

Always ends with a Circle of Trust

Here is all you will need to know

It starts at 5:15 am M-F, 8 pm on Tue and 6 am Sat.

(But get used to doing things you thought were impossible.)
Saturday starts at 6 am. *We like to sleep in sometimes too

Ah, the biggest barrier to showing up. We know it sounds crazy-and it sounds weird saying this, but you will come to genuinely love waking up early and getting a jump start on your day.

You’ll also love the time you get to yourself without emails, kids, spouses, and daily life creeping in. F3 is a break from all of that.

It’s a 45-60 minute boot-camp style workout.

F3 is a a peer-lead, non-professional boot camp-style workout. 

Everyday is different (depending on who is leading) but the exercises are typically running, pushups, jumping jacks, burpees, stuff like that — and then occasionally doing something called “Murder Bunnies” with a cinder block,  but we don’t want to freak you out.

It’s always outside – usually at a park or school.

We literally meet in parking lots at parks and schools around Lincoln. I have got to tell you, those places where your kids play baseball look completely different at 5:15 am (M-F) and 7:00 am (Sat).

A core principle of F3 is that the workouts are always held outdoors. It’s dark, quiet, and wonderful. We call it “The Gloom.”

No one will yell at you. It’s not a competition. It’s just you versus you.

So if you’re imagining a drill Sergeant yelling at you to do pushups, you’ve got it all wrong. In fact, it’s pretty much the opposite of that.

The men of F3 Terracotta are here to encourage you, whatever your ability, age or fitness level.

We have the saying “Leave no man behind, but leave him better than you found him.”

So no yelling. Just the occasional fist bump.

It’s completely free. No strings.

So yeah, F3 is a free men’s workout. There is nothing to buy. No up sell, or cult to join. There’s no points or rewards. No affiliate program or multi-level pyramid of recruitment incentives. It’s just simply free.

There is nothing to rent. No one to pay. Just a group of guys that come together at 5:15 am (M-F) and 7:00am (Sat). in parking lots and parks around Lincoln to work out.

It has nothing to do with religion.

F3 stands for Fitness, Fellowship & Faith®.

The faith thing can be a turn off to some men – so let’s unpack it a little. F3 is not a religious organization. Some of men in the group are, but F3 itself has nothing to do with any religion.

We end every workout with a positive thought for the day. It could be a reflection or perspective from whomever is leading the workout. Some may call that a prayer. Whatever you call it, it’s food for the soul. 

Our version of faith isn’t to get you to join a church – we just want you to believe in something bigger than yourself. Even if it’s the man next to you.

It’s all ages. There are men from 18 to above 62.

F3 is open to all men. We don’t care if you’re in your 20s or 70s, you have a place here. The nature of our workouts is you versus you. No matter your age, F3 will have you push yourself, without hurting yourself.

Besides, there are some 60 year olds in the group who put us all to shame. Respect, Respect.

There are multiple locations around this area.

F3 Terracotta is located right here in our great City of Lincoln

We are also closely connected to F3 Gold Rush, F3 South Fork, and F3 Delta which has sites all over Placer, Sacramento, and Eldorado counties.

But I am not in shape! I haven’t worked out in months or even years.

Wait, wait. Let me make sure I understand. You can’t do push ups? You’re not a runner? You’re about 50 lbs. overweight? You’ve never worked out in your life and you don’t know how? You’re maybe a little embarrassed by your physical condition?

Perfect. Start tomorrow. There will be other men there in the same boat as you. No one will judge you on your shape — and they won’t try to “motivate you” into shape. 

They will just be by your side during the workout, and probably offer you coffee afterwards. You got this.

What do I need to bring?


Your fingertips and palms will thank you. Leather or rubberized-palm work gloves are common.

Athletic Clothing

There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. Wear layers. Wicking materials are recommended. And wash your gear after. It stinks.

No Egos

We strive to include all members and we are all here to help. You are only in a competition with yourself.

How do I join?

There are no forms, no RSVP needed, No waivers.

Pick a location around the Lincoln area HERE, and just show up at that start time. We always start on time and end on time
