Mizner Country Club's Modern-Day Decathlon Inspires Continuous Training and Exercise

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Feb. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- DEKA FIT, a new sport from the creators of Spartan Race, is a true modern-day decathlon of fitness for participants of every fitness level. So says Daniyel Gavrilov, Director of Fitness at Mizner Country Club, who recently organized the first DEKA FIT Challenge for Mizner Country Club's members.

Members, ranging in age from 9 to 70, took part in the 10 DEKA FIT exercises.  Events included Burpees, Reverse Lunges, Rowing, Medical Ball Sit Up Throw, Ski, Box Jump, Famer Carry, Medball Wall Over, Air Bike, Tank Pull/Push. "Combined, it makes this challenge one of the most well-rounded functional fitness training and testing environments ever created," said Gavrilov.  "It's the very first environment that inspires continuous training and exercise. DEKA FIT gives you the ability to consistently set goals and challenge yourself."

Mizner's members agree. Participant Britney Swan said, "DEKA FIT was not something I would have signed up for on my own. However, through training with our Mizner fitness team and my training 'squad,' I have gained so much confidence, strength, and endurance. I also have a newfound camaraderie with all the Mizner DEKA FIT competitors. We have encouraged each other from start to finish." Swan continues, "My two daughters completed the challenge after watching all of us compete. What a great influence on health, fitness, and overall confidence. "

"DEKA FIT was an incredibly challenging yet rewarding experience. The camaraderie when training with friends made it so much fun to practice and prepare for the big event!" noted Katie Vole, another of the Mizner participants.

The program started in late November with two practice events.  The remainder of the program ran from December through January.  Based on the success of the first program, Gavrilov expects to hold three to four challenges per year. The next challenge is scheduled for April. "It was extremely gratifying to see how our members engaged with the challenge.  At first, there was some skepticism, and as they started their training program, that quickly dissipated. The skepticism quickly turned to enthusiasm. Everyone stepped outside of their comfort zone to try something new. The effort, energy, and camaraderie were truly remarkable.

"It was just as extraordinary to see participants, their families, and friends turn out to cheer them on!" exclaims Gavrilov. He notes the fasted completed times, Female and Male of the first DEKA FIT challenge at Mizner were, Kathryn Vole 18:85 and Larry Harris 22:27.
