“Like in all other aspects of life, the way to get the most out of your training is to train hard, and train with a purpose—that’s where we come in.”

The year 2020 marks a new decade—which means all new opportunities for you to set benchmarks, crush goals, challenge yourself, and work toward reaching the best mental and physical shape of your life. And while the resolution of getting in the gym more often is certainly a step in the right direction, it can be easy to lose focus and motivation if you find yourself just going through the motions. The truth is that when it comes to sharpening all of the valuable tools that your body has to offer, getting yourself up and active is only half the battle. Like in all other aspects of life, the way to get the most out of your training is to train consistently, and train with a purpose—that’s where we come in.

So, What is DEKA?

Welcome to DEKA

From the same team who brought you Spartan, DEKA is a true modern-day decathlon of functional fitness for participants of each and every fitness level. DEKA has created an environment in which athletes of all skill levels can continuously train, test, and compete. We feel every gym, box, studio, personal trainer, coach, and group fitness instructor are all doing great work helping improve the fitness culture and DEKA provides a great testing opportunity for their clients.

Putting an emphasis on training with a purpose, DEKA gives you the ability to set goals and challenge yourself. Constructed with all athletes and skill levels in mind, the course combines 10 DEKA Fitness Zones—all preceded by a 500-meter run—to build out a well-rounded functional fitness training and testing environment for all levels of fitness. 

How DEKA Works

A true testament to the ancient Greek approach of preparing the body for Arete (a.k.a. excellence), DEKA will put your body and mind through a series of challenges that will test all muscle groups, functional movement patterns, and the aerobic engine. With DEKA Zones ranging from Squats, Rowing, Med Ball Sit-Up Throws, Box Jumps or Step Ups, Farmer’s Carry, Ski Erg, Tank Sled Push/Pull, Air Bike, Dead Ball Wall-Overs, and Burpees, your training will have you prepared for any challenges that could be bold enough to take you on.

Whether your goal is to get off the couch, compete at the highest level with other members of the DEKA community, or somewhere in between, we’ve created the perfect competition for you. The word compete was derived from two Latin terms - com and petere. Com meaning "come together" and petere meaning "seek and strive".  

So if you’re looking to improve your fitness, push yourself to new levels, and train with a purpose, you’re in the right place. We welcome you to seek, strive, and come together with us. Welcome to the DEKA team—we look forward to seeing you in the DEKA Arena!
