Singapore Sets Guinness World Records for Most People on Trampolines
The Fitness Marathon and trampoline record-breaking session were organised by the Geylang Serai Community Sports Club to encourage healthy living.
375 participants bounced to a new Guinness World Records for Most People on Trampolines at Fitness Marathon 2017 on 8 July 2017 at The Lawn @ Marina Bay.
The new record has surpassed the record of 343 participants which was achieved by Atlantic Therapeutics (Ireland) in Haggerston Park, London, UK, earlier this year on 22 June 2017.
After a successful debut in 2016, which saw Fitness Marathon set a new entry in the Singapore Book of Records by having the “Largest Mass Mini Trampoline Workout” at Paya Lebar Square, the organisers brought this year’s edition to a bigger stage at The Lawn @ Marina Bay.
Of the encouraging turnout and the Guinness World Records title, Guest-of-Honour, Grassroots Advisor, Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef said,
“A s a community, we’ve always done our part to get people to stay active, and keep moving. Fitness Marathon 2017 is one of the highlights of our calendar, bringing Singaporeans from all walks of life together to celebrate fitness, health and movement. The atmosphere was electrifying. I enjoyed myself tremendously and it is with much pride to be able to say we’ve successfully made a mark on the Guinness World Records.”
The Fitness Marathon 2017 featured five popular workouts – Salsation, Fight Do, Piloxing, Zumba and Boogie Bounce Xtreme (BBX).
BBX is a fitness workout that sees enthusiasts attempt choreography atop trampolines. It was during this segment that 375 participants bounced simultaneously for five minutes to set the new record.
