Deon suffered with some weight challenges in his younger years.  He begin to turn to food even more as a way to suppress his depression.  He would overindulge with food as a way to escape.  This pattern lead him to become an emotional eater when he became sad or felt out of control.  This way of life really took a toll on him and he reached his breaking point.  His breaking point happen when he was taking care of his grandparents and was so over stressed, tired and disappointed, not to mention his own personal life was a mess.  He became very angry with himself and went in his room and begin to break CDs and punch walls, etc.  He made a decision to get on his knees and begin to cry out and pray to the Lord! it was in that moment that He spoke to him and told him to go run. It was very late at night but he was obedient and put on his shoes and shorts with his bible programmed in his headphones be begin to walk and then run for about two hours. He begin to find a love for fitness and taking care of himself.  In August of 2018, he created Get Fit with Deon.  A program inspired to keep the fittest in shape and help the beginner to get into shape.
