For their launch of the new CrossFit Nano 7, Reebok assembled a task force of talented athletes who achieved 44 Guinness World Records titles in 24 hours in cities across the globe.

Sydney, London, New York City, and Los Angeles were the cities chosen to host masses of athletes sporting the Nano 7 on February 1, 2017.

Reebok was tremendously grateful and impressed with all athletes who came out to support an unprecedented number of fitness-based records while wearing Nano 7s.
 

 

 
“We believe the Nano 7 is the epitome of training shoes. Putting Nanos to the test through breaking Guinness World Records titles was a fun and exciting way to bring it to life.  Some of our athletes made these incredible fitness feats look easy, but these are world-class efforts and true demonstrations of what happens when determination and grit meet peak performance.  Record or no-record, we’re incredibly proud of all our athletes and volunteer participants who continually show us their willingness to push themselves to their limits,” said Inga Stenta, Senior Director of Brand Management at Reebok.
