On the morning of Friday October 16, the Fitness & Health Expo is calling on Sydney-siders to bounce out of bed and down to Bondi Beach to be part of an official Guinness World Record for the largest fit ball class led by fitness guru Michelle Bridges.

In spectacular fashion, to officially launch to 2015 Sydney Fitness & Health Expo, the record will be challenged with a line of class participants stretching almost half a kilometer around the northern end of Bondi Beach.

The current record of 353 participants took place in Time Square in New York in April last year but Bondi will hopefully be the location for a new record when the half-hour class kicks off at 8.30am.

Hundred of balls will be inflated on the morning and 20 instructors from the Australian Institute of Fitness will help lead the giant class.

Come and have a ball, make history and enjoy a fun workout overlooking beautiful Bondi Beach – you must be over 18 and pre-register to take part as there are only limited spaces!

You will be provided with a Michelle Bridges One Active fit ball on the day and it’s yours to keep. Secure your spot and your fit ball by pre-registering here: www.fitnessexpo.com.au/worldrecord.

Registrations close at midnight on Thursday October 15 (or before if the class is filled).

Michelle Bridges, who will also be running VIP training sessions at the Fitness & Health Expo, said she is very excited about leading what will hopefully be a record-breaking class at a beautiful iconic Sydney location.

“There’s really no better way to start your morning – exercise, sea air and a chance to be part of something huge! So get a group together and let’s set a new record, Sydney style, and have a lot of fun and burn a tonne of calories along the way.”
