This is Asia’s largest record attempt that aims to create a record of the maximum number of people performing the same workout routine through online connectivity.

The Asia Book of Records attempt will have thousands of participants from all over the country performing a 20-minute fitness workout routine simultaneously starting from 9:00 am on 9th August 2020. This is the first-ever fitness challenge that aims to bring maximum people together virtually to perform a workout routine from the comfort of their homes. The event will be inaugurated by Dr. M.S. Nagarajan, Chairman, True and Health, and is to be live-streamed.
