Records were made to be broken, and that’s exactly what Reebok did when it gathered a few special guests and athletes around the world to break 44 of the top fitness-based Guinness World Records titles in just 24 hours. Some of CrossFit’s most well-known athletes including Dan Bailey, Scott Panchik, Paul Tremblay, Rob Forte, Kara Webb, Stacie Tovar, Annie Thorisdottir and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet participating in the event.
Camille Leblanc-Bazinet set four new records including crushing the current record for fastest pegboard climb by nearly 30 seconds; Annie Thorisdottir extending the record for most weight lifted in a clean and jerk by an impressive 600kgs. In New York Rachel Martinez managed an incredible 12 handstand push-ups in 60 seconds while and Ricky Garard and Sammy Wood surpassing the current records for most squats in a minute for a male and female with 70 and 64 respectively.
Through the record-breaking event, Reebok wanted to highlight the versatility of the new Nano 7 show.
“We believe the Nano 7 is the epitome of training shoes. Putting Nanos to the test through breaking GUINESS WORLD RECORD titles was a fun and exciting way to bring it to life. Some of our athletes made these incredible fitness feats look easy, but these are world-
class efforts and true demonstrations of what happens when determination and grit meet peak performance. Record or no-record, we’re incredibly proud of all our athletes and volunteer participants who continually show us their willingness to push themselves to their limits,” said Inga Stenta, Senior Director of Brand Management at Reebok.
