(WICHITA, Kan.) — Update: The Greater Wichita YMCA managed to make their way into the Guiness Book of World Records, but the record didn't last long.
The organization says it just received certification for its record this week...months after they set the record January 1.
But, another organization has already beat their record, so victory was short-lived. The Y says a group of 1,223 people shattered their record in late-April.
“We held the record for nearly four months,” said YMCA Health and Wellness Director Rachel Stuhlsatz in a press release. “That’s still pretty exciting considering how popular Zumba has become, and how many other record attempts we knew were in the works. This just means we have a new target to hit if we want to regain the title.”-----
"My resolution this year is to have fun while I work out," said actress Kirstie Alley.
And that is exactly what the Wichita native did. She joined hundreds of other people at a Wichita YMCA to Zumba, an exercise that combines Latin music, dancing, and working out.
