Our name comes from the title of Aristotle’s work the Nichomachean Ethics. The English rendering of this title in Greek is ETHIKON Nikomacheion.

In this work he says Fortitude (or Courage) is the moral virtue which we must practice to face and overcome those things which instill fear in us.

We want to develop the virtue of Fortitude in ourselves so that we can flourish as human beings. We must practice it daily in the gym, at home, at work, at school, and elsewhere in the pursuit of what is true, good and beautiful in life.
