Yesterday Del Rey Elementary School in Orinda, California, set a new Guiness World Record. With 402 students participating in a five minute hula hoop workout, they smashed the previous record set by 290 students in Hutchinson, Kansas, in November 2012. The event organizer, Eric Menke, said that the event wasn’t just about fitness or hula hooping. He wanted to use this event to teach students three life lessons: (1) Anything you put your mind to you can achieve (2) Never dream small – always dream big (3) Always believe in yourself. With a new world record under their belts, it’s safe to say the students at Del Rey learned all three lessons and then some. More photos available here.
