The Fitness Industry Attempts to Break World Records

Brisbane attempts Fitness World Record

The Brisbane Fitness and Health Expo and the Brisbane community gathered together to attempt to break the fitness world record for the world’s largest circuit class on 22 September.

Held at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus, this fun and free community event aimed to break the current record for the “most people to participate in circuit training at a single venue”.

Local Brisbane fitness celebrity and 2012 Biggest Loser winner Margie Cummins and a small army of enthusiastic Fitness First Personal Trainers lead the 30-minute rotating circuit class, featuring a variety of basic exercise stations.

With plenty of support from Fitness First, Hart Sport and local media, the circuit class was a huge success. And while the world record was, unfortunately, not broken, almost 500 people came together to participate in an energetic class that provided plenty of enjoyment for all involved – as well as a great Sunday morning workout!

Keen to break a Guinness World Record? Join the attempt to create the longest yoga chain!

At 10am on Sunday 20 October, at Spit West Reserve in Mosman (NSW), you can be part of an historic event that combines yoga, fun and supporting women with breast cancer.

Come and join hands with hundreds of yogis, friends, mums, dads and kids in an attempt to create the longest yoga chain in the world.

You don’t even have to be bendy to join in. If you can stand, sit or lie down, then you’re fit and flexible enough to take part (we’ve yet to find anybody who can’t do Savasana – lying down on your back and relaxing)!

If you’re looking for a more vigorous yoga challenge, there will be a pre-event warm up class to get your body moving and your energy levels soaring.

Bring your entire yoga class, sports team or office and join in the Team Challenge. There are medals for the biggest team on the day and a luxurious yoga retreat for the individual who raises the most funds!

Just $35 registration gets you a spot on the mat and a place in yoga history – all without having to touch your toes!

About the World’s Longest Yoga Chain

Yoga and meditation have been shown in many studies to provide valuable benefits to cancer patients. This event is part of Adore Yoga’s Pink Yoga program, a not for profit initiative that makes yoga and meditation freely available to women with cancer.
