Announcing the closure of CF Duck Creek at the end of November

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

This is a notice to inform all current athletes at CF Duck Creek that our last day of training at the facility will be Friday, November 28th. I have posted a document (here) outlining the various items in the gym that will be for sale on a cash basis the week of the 24th, the rest will go into storage to be sold to other buyers outside the gym starting December 1st.

This decision has not been an easy one and I will truly miss the experiences we had over the last two years and all the personal bests achieved. I have had some discussions with Dan at CF Sirius ( and he is looking forward to meeting those who wish to continue in their CrossFit journey. While it has not been decided, he and I have discussed me joining as a Coach there so I may be able to continue to ensure your butt is back, shoulders up and your elbows are coming around quickly on your cleans.

I will strive to ensure our regular schedule will continue as we near the close of business but ask your patience as other factors may force me to cancel a class from time to time. All cancellations will continue to be posted on the CF Duck Creek facebook page and in the Friends of Duck Creek group.

The domain of and my email of will likely continue until the end of February but to be sure you are welcome to stay in contact on FB or in email (get with me for the details).  The CFDC phone number of 469-844-3420 will continue also for those that may wish to call or text.

Again, thank you for your confidence and patronage over the last year. Your trust in allowing me to be a part of your fitness journey has meant the world to me and I hope I have been a positive factor in your health choices during this time.

Great info and the relationship (and amusingly, lack of relationship) between split times and stroke rate. Get your read on then hop on and try some of the drills. Can you hold a target stroke rate? Target split time?
