Ikei Performance Athletes represent Arizona in Offense-Defense All American Bowl

January 2, 2009, Coastal Carolina University will welcome eighty-eight of the best high school seniors in the country to compete in the Offense-Defense All American Bowl. This prestigious all-star football game has provided numerous athletes opportunity to showcase their skills amongst the best in the country and produced countless NCAA and NFL greats throughout the years.

Ikei Performance is proud to announce that two of our athletes, Ryan Reardon and Caleve Deboskie, will be representing Arizona on the West Team. Ryan Reardon of Notre Dame Prep was selected as a Linebacker and has proven to be one of the top tacklers in the state as he helped lead his team to back-to-back State Championships. Caleve Deboskie of Chandler High was selected as a Wide Receiver and led his team with receiving yards this season. Both of these young men wasted no time after their seasons finished and immediately started training at Ikei Performance in preparation for the bowl game.

“I’m honored to have been selected to the O-D All American Bowl. This year was a great one for me, winning back-to-back state titles and now being able to represent the state of Arizona on National TV, I can’t wait to play” states Reardon. “I’ve worked hard all year long since the end of last season. I took the advice of what some of the scouts and college coaches have shared with me and put in the work to overcome my deficiencies. Now it’s time to lay it all out on the field.”

Caleve Deboskie is familiar with the High School All-star Games as his older brother Covaughn played in the Army All-American Game last year. “Last year I got to watch my brother play in his all-star game and told myself that I’m going to do everything possible to get invited to a bowl game as well” says Deboskie. After receiving his invite to the Offense-Defense All American Bowl Deboskie was pumped about playing stating “I’m extremely proud to be representing my school and the state of Arizona. I know this is a great opportunity for me to show my skills and ability against top level competition.”

“We are very proud of Ryan and Caleve. I think I got more excited than them when I received the news” remarks Chad Ikei, owner of Ikei Sports Performance, “both these boys exemplify what hard work and discipline can do for a young athlete. They dedicated their summers to improving their athletic ability. To make the sacrifices they made to improve their game says it all and both of them are very deserving of playing in this bowl game.”

Congratulations Ryan and Caleve and enjoy this moment as you play your final High School football game on National Television. All of us here at Ikei Performance are extremely proud of you and know you will both exceed all expectations.

Check out our boys play at the Offense-Defense All American Bowl live on Fox College Sports, Friday, January 2, 2009 kickoff at 5 pm EST.

Give Your Friends and Family the Invaluable Gift of Good Health

This year, why not give something healthy and beneficial to a loved one? Why not give the gift of health? Living a healthy lifestyle is important, but sometimes challenging. Due to the tough economy, many Americans are facing financial hardships and have cut back on fitness memberships and many other things that aid in healthy living. With the help of Ikei Performance and the 30 minute Warrior Fitness Workout, you can give the gift of better health to friends and loved ones this holiday season, without breaking the bank.

The gift of health is something that you can give to virtually anyone-- from your parents, to your spouse, a friend, your siblings, even your children. Health and fitness go hand in hand, when you give someone the gift of fitness, you are helping them open a door to better health both physically and mentally. It is an invaluable gift that you will be proud to give.

Chad Ikei, Owner of Ikei Sports Performance had this to say “Giving someone the tools to feel better, look better and live healthier is a priceless gift. It shows that you care about their well being. In today’s society there are gyms and personal trainers everywhere but not everyone has the time or the funds to take advantage of it. The Warrior Workout program was designed with that in mind…it is fast, effective and very affordable.”

With the 30 minute Warrior Fitness Workout the “I just don’t have time” excuse is no longer valid. In just 30 minutes the Ikei Sports Performance team will have your friends and family on the road to better health and the physique they desire in no time. This intense and effective workout incorporates a mix of weight training, strongman training, athletic conditioning and plyometrics.

According to Kamalei Magnani, a trainer at the Ikei Sports Performance facility in Scottsdale, “The Warrior Fitness Workout is a fun and exciting way to lose weight or take your fitness training to the next level. Each 30 minute session is a full body workout that incorporates both cardio and strength training. Each session participants are challenged with something different to keep them motivated, like flipping tractor tires, pulling and pushing sleds, tossing medicine balls or lifting sand bags.”

Warrior Fitness Workout Classes are being offered Monday-Friday with morning classes at 6:30-7:00, 8:45-9:15 and evening class at 5:30-6:00. There is also a Saturday morning class from 8:45-9:15.
