“DEKA FIT was an amazing experience for me.  The training leading up to the event with my gym community and the extra support of the DEKA staff helped me accomplish my goals. After it was all said and done, I really do feel proud of myself and can’t wait for the next one!”

 

Jackie, DEKA Fit Palm Beach

“I love how DEKA truly tests my physical AND mental fitness, all while putting me in a competitive atmosphere. The energy of the other athletes pushing themselves helps motivate you to give it everything you’ve got! Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or advanced- it’s you VS. you out there… nothing like DEKA!”
