Life Time Fitness has set a world record for the largest static cycling class in history, recognized by the Guinness World Records. It was recognized for its “Ride of a Lifetime” stationary cycle ride that went on for two hours despite the 20-43 degree weather. Life Time’s chairman, chief executive officer and president Bahram Akradi and the company’s DJ Roberto Costa, lead the class of more than 600 participants in the largest static cycling class to secure their spot in the records. The class was held at the Houstin CityCentre. The company previously held the record for its 418 strong class on March 23, 2009 at the Life Time Fitness center in Plano, Texas. The record was broken on September 18, 2009 by a 450 cyclist strong class in Galway, Ireland.
