“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!”
“I love how DEKA truly tests my physical AND mental fitness, all while putting me in a competitive atmosphere.

Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or advanced- it’s you VS. you out there… nothing like DEKA!”
