Valley News is joining with Fit City and Breaking Records for Charities in the effort to establish a new Guinness World Record for “Most People Participating in a Circuit Training Class” in one location.
The record of 2,061 participants was established July 31, 2013 in Melbourne Australia. “We hope to blow that record away with over 4,000 participants from our local businesses and communities,” said event organizer Roger Kaman, owner of Fit City, a faith-based mobile gym business.
The event will be held at the Storm Stadium, 500 Diamond Drive, in Lake Elsinore on Saturday, Jan. 17. Check-in is at 8 a.m. Participants will complete a 30-minute circuit workout at three 10-minute workout stations.
“The event is open to everyone of all ages and fitness levels and there is no cost to register and participate,” Kaman said. “However, we hope people and businesses will donate – and donate generously – to the charities we hope to help.” The designated charities are Southwest Boys & Girls Clubs, Oak Grove Center, Conquer Chiari and Rancho Damacitas.
In addition to local mayors, city officials and fitness instructors, the event will feature reality TV stars Gillian Larson and Cristina Coria from “Survivor”, and Bridgette Tomarcio from “Project My World” and “Hollywood Gene.” Also leading exercises will be speaker, best-selling author, TV hostess, and fitness expert Wendy Ida.
The event has been approved by Guinness World Records and, if successful, participants will receive a special code enabling them to order a certificate confirming their status as a “World Record Holder.”
In addition, Valley News will be presenting special “World Record Holder” plaques for most participants in the event from a high school, middle school, elementary school, non-profit organization, for-profit business, medical/dental organization and fitness business.
Music, food and festivities will be available following the event. Local businesses and citizens and their friends and family are encouraged to participate in this world record event.
