The DEKA Science
The Greeks were the first on record to gamify and test fitness and the Greek term DEKA means Ten.
With our 10 DEKA Zones, we’re providing a well-rounded functional test for all fitness levels. Every zone is based on rudimentary movements that don’t require any specific training or education to complete. Think thousands of years ago when it wasn’t called exercise, fitness, or training. It was survival. Lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, kneeling, jumping/stepping/climbing over something, getting down on the ground and standing back up, and three basic forms of transportation – row, ski, & cycle.
Training with purpose before and in between each DEKA Mark test/event provides an opportunity for every fitness level to improve in these 10 functional movement areas. As DEKA Marks (time/score) improve, well-rounded fitness and health & wellness improve.
The zone sequence and flow is designed to start with basic movements throughout the early zones that, when combined, target the entire body and then finish with zones 6-10, with the last 5 requiring 100% full body focus for each zone.
