Fitness World Record Attempt Benefits Charity
Is it on your bucket list to break a world record? Now is your chance! Well, you and 4,000 of your closest friends and neighbors, that is.
This Saturday morning, in the parking lot of Storm Stadium in Lake Elsinore, Your Fit City and Breaking Records for Charity are teaming up to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for ‘Largest Fitness Circuit Training in a Single Location,’ and you can be a part of the fun!
“The goal of the event is to bring health and fitness awareness to the Valley by getting the community involved in not only breaking the Guinness World Record but to raise money for four local charities that do so much for children,” Loree Olson, one of the event’s organizers said. “The current record is held in Australia with 2,061 people. We are anticipating over 4,000 people.”
To break the record, participants will rotate between three workout stations that are ten minutes each, for a total of 30-35 minutes of exercise. Local mayors, City officials, fitness instructors and special guest instructors will motivate participants and help them through the trio of circuits. Activities will include push-ups, sit-ups, air squats and other fun exercises. All activities will be body-weight directed. No equipment will be used.
If enough eager exercisers gather and the record is broken, participants will receive a code enabling them to order a certificate confirming their status as a World Record Holder.
Anyone is invited to participate in the world record attempt and participation is free, but donations are encouraged as the goal of this event is raise money for charity. Proceeds benefits four local charities: Boys and Girls Club SWC, Conquer Chiari, Oak Grove Center and Rancho Damacitas.

Following the record attempt, attendees can enjoy live bands, raffles and almost 100 vendors so the entire family, whether they are participating or just cheering on their friends and family, can spend a full day of fun together, all while raising money for a good cause.
Registration is available at 8:00 am Saturday morning at the stadium, but would-be participants are encouraged to register in advance. To sign up for the event or for more information, visit breakingrecordsforcharities.com.
