40 Fitness Enthusiasts and 10 Gyms from Florida Participated in Safe, Clean, Socially Distanced Competition

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - PrZen -- In an effort to motivate and get Floridians excited about getting healthy, working out, and being safe, Slash Fitness in Delray Beach joined with DEKAFIT, by the creators of Spartan, to host the first ever two-day DEKAFIT STRONG Activation.

Saturday's workout session brought out 40 Slash Fitness members for a competition, which included 10 DEKA Fitness Zones to build out a well-rounded functional fitness training and testing environment for all levels. Sunday's session included 10 gyms from around Florida for a "Battle of the Gyms" competition. Each participant was paired with a coach to keep track of timing, count repetitions, ensure social distancing, and clean all surfaces after use.

Nick Porreca, a Slash Fitness coach and trainer, won the individual competition in 14 minutes and 29 seconds. First place in the "Battle of the Gyms" competition was GETT ITT Core Fitness from Jacksonville.

The event was made possible by sponsors Celsius, Chestee, FROPRO, Barrel of Monks Brewing, and Restore Hyper Wellness (Delray Beach).
