Fitness-loving women of Mumbai, here’s an opportunity of your lifetime! While those visiting Mumbai this week and planning to fly out just before November 6, here’s a suggestion – extend your stay or regret it.

Puma, in association with Guinness World Records, is organizing an event that attempts to break the World Record of “The Most People to hold The Abdominal Plank Position” for 60 seconds and it will be attempted by only women.

“The original record belongs to a 1300-people group in Shanghai, China. We are hoping 4000 women doing it together and breaking the record”, shares Abhishek Ganguly, MD, Puma India.

The event is a part of the #DoYou Movement by Puma that calls women to fearlessly chase their dreams.

Celebrities such as Jacqueline Fernandez, Ujjwala Raut, Anushka Manchanda, Kalki Koechlin and this year’s Olymypic medalist Wrestler Sakshi Malik are going to add to the star power of the official GWR attempt. They all have taken up the World Record challenge and will be planking with other women participants. While a Zumba session is also scheduled and will be spearheaded by Lead Zumba Education Specialist Sucheta Pal.

The registrations are on first come first serve basis.

Guinness World Record team isn’t new to the Indian state of Maharashtra. Earlier in 2015,  there was a successful World Record attempt of ‘Most People Running Up A Single Mountain’ during Satara Hill Marathon.

Sanjay Tripathy, Senior Executive Vice President, HDFC Life, happened to be a part of this historic event and the World Record came to him as a surprise as he didn’t know he was participating in a GWR official attempt. On the successful completion of Marathon and Record, he and other participants received this certificate.


“I had planned to run Satara half marathon on Sep 6 2015 to challenge myself as it is considered as one of the toughest half marathon course in India as it involves a unique mountain climb of almost 11 km and running downhill on return. I was delighted when I knew that a new Guinness World Record title for ‘most people in a single mountain run’ was set at the Satara Hill Half Marathon (SHHM). The announcement came after Guinness World Records (GWR) authenticated the information. It was an amazing feeling and it will rank as one of my biggest achievement in my long distance running career so far”, shares Tripathy.

“I wish all the participants in tomorrow’s plank challenge all the best. Being part of an attempt for Guinness World Records is a rare opportunity and an unforgettable moment.”

Tomorrow is your moment again, Mumbai! Nail the record, stand yourself a chance to get one of those certificates and have your name in the Guinness World Record Books forever! 🙂
