Mission: To empower our youth to face fears and conquer obstacles, knowing their worth, building self-worth as well as becoming stronger physically. Obstacle Racing, particularly in team racing, develops community, unity, strength and empowerment by helping others. No one is left out, left behind. If one person can’t do an obstacle, their teammate will help, or even do it for them. Everyone has their favorite strength and obstacle, together we face them and are victorious.
I understand that there are many things about Lionhearts Fitness that go completely against the grain, the “norm.” I have fought for these differences, since conception.
This is not a franchise, or a business.
It is a mission*
To start with:
FREE (My accountant scuffaws at this)
Then, the more acceptable:
No Phone Zone
No Bully Zone , zero tolerance
Then we have:
We have no age or ability segregation.
We are team building with a small branch of competition.
We are not competitive to present winning as a goal.
We compete to bring awareness to the overall goal, mission*. Ocr Luccketta demonstrates this. Our Mentors, do the same.
Serving the community, serving our fellow, not to magnify the person, but to magnify the mission*.

We want to accomplish this mission, every day. Thank you, everyone. It is an honor to be on this journey together.
