ViSalus is helping people jumpstart their New Year’s health and fitness resolutions in a big way. On Jan. 3 at 12 p.m., the healthy lifestyle company is looking to set a record for the World’s Largest Simultaneous Group Workout.
Troy, Michigan-based ViSalus has invited individuals to participate by hosting or joining one of its Challenge Group events. The groups are forming across North America as well as Europe, where the company operates under the Vi brand. Challenge Group members will come together on Jan. 3 for a variety of activities oriented to people at all fitness levels.
The record would not be the first set by ViSalus, which teamed up with celebrity Alfonso Ribeiro in 2012 to perform the World’s Largest Simultaneous Flash Mob. The flash mob featured Ribeiro’s “Carlton” dance, named for his character on television’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The famous moves also helped Ribeiro and his partner, Witney Carson, win the latest season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
In addition to gunning for a world record, the Challenge Groups will be sweating for a good cause. For every person who takes part, ViSalus has committed to donating 30 meals through its PROJECT 10 Kids program, which supplies Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Meals to children in need.
