A new Guinness World Record has been set for the most people on trampolines in one location by a group of hardy souls in Haggerston Park.
Led by four-time Olympic medallist, Rebecca Adlington, 343 people became record breakers for bouncing non-stop for five minutes on individual trampolines yesterday (Thursday) in the Hackney park.
Hosted by Innovo – a restoration system which uses therapy to strengthen pelvic muscles and enable women to overcome bladder weakness – the record was set during Women’s Sport Week to encourage women to get moving and live life to the full.
The Innovo crew say “whether you’re short of time, out of practice or one of the one in three ladies in London who suffer from bladder weakness, little ‘wow’ moments like bouncing on a trampoline with your children, strutting your stuff at Zumba or running through the park can really transform how you feel about life and yourself.”
“Research shows that 59 per cent of Londoners say feeling good on the inside is key to feeling good on the outside so it has never been so important to think about physical wellbeing as much as – or even more than – your appearance.”

“I am so passionate about helping and encouraging women to get moving and enjoy themselves by being as active as possible,” Rebbecca said. “Nearly 20pc of Londoners say they neglect their inner core health2, which needs to change.
