March 11, 2015: Herbalife joined with its members around the world last weekend to create a new Guinness World Record for most participants in a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout in 24 hours.

 

As part of the event, the global nutrition company and its members also created a new world record for number of people in a HIIT workout in one location, with nearly 4,000 people filling the LA Live Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles.

 

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

 

The workout began on Saturday, March 7, at 9.00am local time in Auckland, New Zealand. Throughout the next 24 hours, workout events were held across Asia – including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan – Europe, Africa, South America and North America.
