Herbalife sets Guinness World workout record

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Herbalife, a global nutrition company, recently received the Guinness World Records achievement award for most participants in a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout in 24 hours.

Tens of thousands of independent Herbalife members —along with their customers, friends, and family — hosted workouts at local Herbalife nutrition clubs, parks, and public meeting spaces across more than 80 countries.

“This is an incredible achievement for everyone at Herbalife and a lot of people had a lot of fun,” said Michael Johnson, Herbalife chairman and CEO. “People from every corner of the globe gathered together in their communities with one goal: to show the world the importance of exercise as part of a healthy life.”

Herbalife also created a new world record for the most number of people who participated in a High Intensity Interval Training workout in one location, with nearly 4,000 people filling the LA Live Plaza in downtown Los Angeles.

The workout began on Saturday, March 7, at 9 a.m. local time in Auckland, New Zealand. In the next 24 hours, workout events were held in towns and cities in every region of the globe, including Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Romania, Spain, Italy, U.K., Russia, Ukraine, Africa, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, Panama, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

In North America, more than 150 US locations hosted workouts, with the largest gathered participants recorded in Chicago, New York, El Paso, Miami, and Los Angeles.

The flagship workout took place at Herbalife’s LA Live office location in downtown Los Angeles. Herbalife director of fitness education, Samantha Clayton, led the workout at Nokia Plaza, LA Live at 9 a.m. local time, with nearly 4,000 participants taking part.

The official Guinness World Records adjudicator, Michael Empric confirmed that Herbalife had successfully created a new world record for both the most participants in a HIIT workout in 24 hours and the most participants in a HIIT workout in one location. Empric, who was present at the event in Los Angeles, stated, “It was great to be there in person to see so many excited and enthusiastic people all working out together. I was delighted to be able to confirm the record had been set and personally present the certificate to the company”. 

The event also served as a global fundraiser for the Herbalife Family Foundation and its Casa Herbalife Program, which supports and funds more than 100 health and nutrition programs around the world for at-risk and low-income children in underserved areas around the world.
