‘Better’, as the company is known, in association with dance fitness brand Clubbercise, are aiming to set the record for the largest Clubbercise class.

The attempt will take place during a Clubbercise Glowfest event on 30 September from 5.30pm – 8.45pm at UCLan Sports Arena.

Clubbercise is renowned for its easy-to- follow, fun fitness routines featuring glow sticks and a soundtrack of club anthems from 90s classics to the latest chart hits.

The Glowfest event is part-funded by the Big Lottery and will bring the ultimate fitness party to Preston to raise money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

It will be led by national Clubbercise presenters, and local instructors will work up a sweat to their favourite hits.

Both beginners and avid fitness fans can attend, with high and low impact options included in each routine.

Dressing up in glowing neon fitness gear will be actively encouraged and you will be provided with a set of Clubbercise signature flashing  LED glow sticks.

There will also be neon face painting on-hand to give that extra glow.

Jimmy Khan, Partnership Manager at Better, said: “We are proud to be associated with this event, any initiative that encourages people to become more physically active should be embraced and applauded.

“I do hope that this Guinness World Records title attempt captures the imagination of the public”.

Claire Burlison Green, Clubbercise Founder and Brand Director, said: “I was really excited when GLL approached us and it made perfect sense to include the Guinness World Records attempt as part of our very first Clubbercise Glowfest event.

“We’re hoping to get over 500 clubbers all partying in Preston which will be the biggest event we’ve ever done.”

It is a ticketed event with tickets priced at £6.50 for over 16’s, with an additional booking fee.

Youngsters aged 7-15 can attend for free.

You can purchase tickets online here and registration for the event closes on Wednesday 27 September at 5pm.
