The world record attempt was led by Clubbercise Master Trainers.

The trainers created an electric atmosphere for the participants.

A sea of glow sticks illuminated the arena whilst dance club anthems, from past to present, helped to provide the ultimate party feel.

The Mayor of Preston, Councillor Brian Rollo opened the attempt, with an official  Guinness World Record adjudicator present to verify that the largest clubbercise class attempt was a success.
