Kurt Wunderlich (F3 Wolverine | St. Louis) made it to his first F3 workout in September 2019, after having lunch with an attorney to discuss helping clients design better estate plans. Little did he know this lunch would introduce him to a great group of guys who would improve his life forever. As a former athlete, he thought he could out king his queen and was in the midst of realizing this thinking caused him to gain 20+ lbs when he made his first post. By standing shoulder to shoulder in the gloom and forming a shield lock with HIMs in St Louis, he is continuing to accelerate his fitness while also focused on reining in his jester, the queen. In F3 he has held multiple leadership roles, starting as the 3rd F of St. Louis where it has expanded from a single region into 4, and as the Shield Lock Q focused on helping men fight the flux. His concentrica is his M Ashley, who enjoys poking fun at the F3 lexicon, and their two daughters. For his mammon, he is in business development for one of the largest registered investment advisors in the country which allows him to meet more of the PAX of F3 nation on his travels for work.
