North Bay is officially a Guinness World Records Holder!
On June 8, 2019, Cor Maximus & Rebuilt Resources, in partnership with the Nipissing Motorcycle Ride for Dad, attempted a Guinness World Record by hosting the largest Exercise Ball Class. The previous record had been held by the YMCA of Greater Toronto with 454 people participating. After almost 2 years, organizers have received confirmation from the Guinness World Records organization that North Bay has successfully surpassed the previous record.
‘As an Ultimate Ball Class instructor at Cor Maximus, the event seemed like a logical way to promote a healthy lifestyle while making a difference in the lives of those diagnosed with prostate cancer.” said Khouri Long, owner of Cor Maximus.
“One in six Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes and 12 perish from the disease daily”, shared John Strang, co-chair of the Nipissing Ride For Dad. “We were excited to work alongside Cor Maximus and Rebuilt Resources to bring more awareness to the our cause”.
Maureen Brazeau, manager of Rebuilt Resources stated, “As a strong supporter of our community, we were so proud to be involved in this event. I am an advocate for a healthy lifestyle so this was a proud moment for me.”
