“With DEKA, we wanted to give every single person in the DEKA Arena the ability to push their fitness level and leave the DEKA Gym a little bit closer to that goal of achieving personal excellence — and that goes for the spectators as well.”
Few things get the palms sweating and the heart pumping like the feeling of competition — the focus of the athletes, the motivation of the coaches, the music bumping. It’s something we have always loved. With DEKA, we wanted to give every single person in the DEKA Arena the ability to push their fitness level, and leave a little bit closer to that goal of achieving personal excellence — and that goes for the spectators, as well.
The DEKA Arena
The layout of the arena itself was created in a way that would allow all fans and spectators to move freely throughout the arena, while encouraging more movement than they would typically encounter while attending an event. This make it super easy for a friend or family member to add to their daily step count while watching their athlete compete. We also know that getting to the event can be a mission in and of itself at times — especially these days — so we’ve carefully selected DEKA Arena locations that are walk, bike, and ride-share-friendly.
Once inside, every DEKA Arena will have a 360-degree walking route to encourage DEKA spectators to move with their athletes every step of the way. If a friend or family member gets the fitness itch while tracking the progress of their athlete, the extra-wide walking areas allow for a few squats and burpees to help engulf them in the DEKA experience even more.
Between being able to keep up with the athletes through every step of their experience, feeling the level of energy throughout the arena, and logging up to 1.5 miles or more of movement (if they choose) throughout their experience, it’s likely that the next time a spectator walks into a DEKA Arena, it will be to compete themselves.
