5 Core Principles and Disclaimer were shared with the Pax on a mild and clear morning (58 degrees) at the University Corner Beatdown AO. Ruckers joined the Beatdown to support Sparkler leading a VQ.

Warm-up: Mosey around the parking lot with high knees, karaoke, and nur.
Warm-up 2: COT for Side Straddle Hops, Imperial Walkers, Leg stretches, Freedom Twists, Merkins, Mountain Climbers, Squats, Flutter Kicks, and Big Boys.

The Main Thang

We performed a ladder structured whole body workout with a partner. One partner would run a set distance and the other would do his first rung. Upon return, the partners would switch. After both partners complete the first rung, they move onto the second.
Sparkler told the group that they are performing this workout in honor of Sam Arent, a personal friend who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 33. His 34th birthday would have been on Feb 7 so the highest rung on our ladder is 34.

Sparkler shared about his friend Sam and his love for Jesus, his family, and boxing.
He thanked the HIM for welcoming him to F3Suncoast and expressed how thankful we should be for good friends.
He also challenged the group that as important as Fitness and Fellowship is, only Faith in Christ is something that guarantees hope for eternity. We can’t take the things of this earth with us and our days are numbered. Sam knew his Savior and could step into eternity with peace with God. Can we say the same?
In the Name-o-Rama, the group chose to take Sam Arent’s name in place of their PAX name.
