The World’s Most Prolific Female Record Setter is busy again competing and going for new records in this sizzling, hot-to-trot summer. This is paddle board racing season and she recently took a victory in the SUP surfboard class at the Florida CUP. Then, she began training in new extreme paddle boarding styles (see below) and much more!
Fresh Off Weber’s Florida Cup Victory she began to train in 6 extreme paddling styles to challenge herself even more and work more muscles. Weber enjoys paddle boarding for the benefits in balance and stability training and overall physical fitness (and injury prevention).

Alicia Weber has been raising the bar in physical fitness for over 20 years as she sets record after record, wins at sports, and develops a champion’s mindset in youths, young adults, and senior citizens alike in a variety of athletic endeavors. Each Year Weber takes her game to a new level.
One of her biggest fans has dubbed her feats of strength “Super Endurance Feats.” Alicia Weber smashed records in an unbelievable fashion this year with both mental and physical toughness. Below are some of her her select Official Recordsetter World Records that fans call “Super Endurance Feats” of 2016.
TOP 6 SELECT SUPER ENDURANCE FEATS OF 2016
SHOWN ABOVE #1 This is probably the most talked about Super Endurance Feat of 2016: The Most Non-Stop Combinations of Leg Lifts and Straight Leg Holds (2,030 leg lifts and 34 minutes of straight leg holds)
SHOWN BELOW #2 After setting and re-setting the 1 hour of pull-up world record over the past 8 years, Weber performed the most pull-ups ever in one hour (out of men and women) with 1,070 strict pull-ups in one hour.
SHOWN BELOW #3 Longest Swiss Ball Cadence Test (31 minutes)
SHOWN BELOW #4 Fastest Time to Complete 300 Thick Bar Pull-ups and run a one mile cross country run (30:46.7) The heat made this record tough…it was 100 degrees out and tough to hold onto the pull-up bar after awhile as skin came off the fingers from the heat.
SHOWN BELOW #5 She smashed the former record by 145 reps!!! The Most 90 Degree Flexed Hang Knee to Elbow Raises in 30 mionutes (620 reps)
SHOWN BELOW #6 This might be more challenging than the above ab exercise even though it is just 15 minutes. This video has the most views out of all six videos. It gives a major burn!!! The Most Consecutive Decline Locked Finger Pushups in 15 Minutes (205 pushups)
CLERMONT, FL—-This week was highly exciting for me both personally and professionally. First, I pulled off an enormous endurance feat I have been eyeing since first grade…(and seriously training 8 1/2 years to finally be able to do…). I became the first person to complete 1,070 strict pull-ups in one hour, which brings my physical fitness world record count to 835 this week (btw 2 WR books). Four days after this feat, I was holding my own unique event for others in my Bullseye Scavenger Hunt Series # 2 held in conjunction with Farmer’s Market.
There is always some nervousness with the anticipation of these events. I was blown away by the confidence and power exuded in my newest archer, Addie (who is 6 with only one lesson under her belt), when she powerfully shot out a few high scoring arrows in just the “warm up”. I knew a record was on the way…
Watch Addie Shatter Record
The youths understand that they may get nervous the first time they compete and their score may be lower than in practice. However, they know that practice ultimately leads to performance. In the 10 arrow 10 yard shoot for 4 minutes, I saw my seasoned archers do what they have done in practice and my newest archer did set a new record!
Addie, 6, set the record for the “Highest scorer in a 10 yard 10 arrow competition for 4 minutes from a youth age 6 or under with just one archery lesson” with her score of 9 points.
Ramsey of the Rising Underdogs won the boys archery competition with his score of 55 points (10 points away from the boys youth record). This was his first archery victory.
Nicole of the NS Archers won her first archery competition as well with her score of 74 points (12 points away from the girls youth record). Aisha of the Purple Pandas was following close behind with 72 points and she is currently the female leader in the Series Championship.
Onward, the archers went to Clermont Farmer’s Market for photographic scavenger hunt. It’s a great, fun opportunity to get locals acquainted with farmer’s market and all the vendors. The families work together to hunt down items. However, they not only look for interesting things or people, but they have to try to take the best pictures and complete the scavenger hunt in 20 minutes or less. The Photo Contest Winners are below. I look for close up, sharp, well-taken shots with good lighting and interesting angles.

As an elite athlete and fitness professional, I achieved my greatest successes to date in 2015 and I look forward to 2016 and helping others exceed their goals!
Professionally, my career highlight came when I worked with Olympic and World Champion sprinters on their quest to make the 2015 World Championships, Pan Am Games, and World Relays Track and Field Teams. The athletes I worked with on P360 Pro Track Team earned many medals at these championships. I was the team licensed massage therapist and stretching coach.
As a world record holder, I set the most strength and endurance world records ever in one year – 220!! My previous best was 205 records in 2012. I am the world’s most prolific physical fitness world record holder. I realized in December that I had the chance to exceed 205 records and I aimed for 210.
I opened the new category – 30 Minute consecutive Spiderman Pushups at Recordsetter where I completed 511 reps on December 29.
On Christmas, I broke two challenging one arm pushup records (one of which took 5 attempts before re-setting it).
On the last day of the year, I attempted to reclaim my 3 minute arms held out deep squat record (which an ultra athlete Frenchman currently holds), but I fell short. However, I kept going to open some new categories. At the strike of midnight, I was overjoyed when I saw the realization that I exceeded my goal and set 220 records in one year!!
As an athlete, I finally won my first SUP race of my career in my 7th race! I took over 20 minutes off my 3 mile time and finished in 35 minutes in the intracoastal waterways of Englewood, Florida. I won my 3rd Beach Running Championship title in May and I became the only male or female to win the championship three times. I competed in three sports in 2015 (beach running (off terrain running), SUP racing, and fitness challenge events).
Welcoming 2016, I look forward to the kids, adults, and seniors joining my archery fitness league, athletic camps, and clinics. I look forward to working with my new students in learning to stand up paddle board. I am looking forward to covering a lot of unique stories on this website in 2016 and offering innovative advertising and marketing services to those interested.
Progress is progress no matter how big or small. Alicia Weber is all about setting goals and progressing. We will get to take a look at some of Alicia’s select Recordsetter World Records and review the progress she has made so far. The records may cover any of the following 5 areas of physical fitness: 1. Flexibility, 2. Balance/coordination/stability, 3. Cardio strength/endurance, 4. Muscular strength/endurance, and 5. core strength/endurance.
1. The 400 Rep Aerobic Capacity Wellness Challenge was developed by Alicia after studying and testing athletes to determine which aerobic-strength exercises were the most challenging, but also showed to improve one’s fitness the fastest. Out of the 580 world records, Alicia has set so far (as of 3/19/15) this record has held her highest heart rate the longest. This record covers all the five areas of physical fitness.
Progressions for the 400 Rep Aerobic Capacity Wellness Challenge
2. One Arm Hindu Basketball Pushups for consecutive reps is a very challenging record category, which requires one arm strength, balance, stability, and coordination. It took Alicia nearly 22 minutes to do the 111 consecutive slow reps, which was also a test in muscular endurance. Alicia re-set this record for the third time, but made a gigantic leap of progress from holding the record at 30 reps and jumping to 111 reps!!
Progressions for the One Arm Hindu Basketball Pushups
3. 100M Plyometric Alligator Pushup record for fastest time was ranked Alicia’s #1 Most intense record she set in the year 2012 (where she set 188 fitness records that year). One year later, Alicia re-set the record dropping more than 3 minutes off her time and she did not consider this record nearly as challenging the second time around as she did when she first set it – that is progress! This record tests cardio and muscular strength/endurance.
100m Plyometric Alligator Pushups Progressions
4. The 500m Dash Indoor row is an all out test in muscular and cardio strength. Alicia has competed in the Indoor Rowing World Qualifying Event for 4 years earning two silver medals and one bronze thus far. You can watch as she keeps getting faster and faster although progress is in smaller increments as in seconds and points of a second. Her fastest thus far was in 2014 where she did 1:46.3 (which was the 18th fastest time in the world in 2014 for lightweight women).
500m Indoor Row Progressions
5. The One Leg 500m Dash Indoor Row is similar to the standard 500m dash event except more challenging. This event tests cardio and muscular strength as well as balance/stability/coordination, and flexibility. There is much more conditioning required in the area of balance/stability and flexibility to execute a fast time in such a rare event. Alicia made incredible progress when she dropped 3 seconds in just 2 days to set and re-set the record! You can see the difference in the level of difficulty when comparing it to the above standard 500m indoor row. Her best so far is 2:06.8
The girls trained in a progressive six week program, which focused on cooperative learning, mental and physical conditioning, and advanced archery skills. All the archers had the opportunity to see how far they could grow in the program. They could strive for a level five varsity archery status. Siracusano, Taylor, Hassell, and Nick Linkiewicz were the only four archers to achieve level 5 status.
Determined Hassell picked up a bow and arrow for the first time and jumped from level one to the highest scorer in level 5 in a competition on November 8. She anchored the first ever obstacle archery relay and finished in 10 minutes flat. Their official record is published at Record Setter World Records.
The dynamic Taylor took her gun-shooting background and fast footwork from track and became an instant success in archery and archercise. She had the fastest leg in the relay with her time of 3:16.
Focused Siracusano has shown great leadership qualities ever since she blossomed as the number one female archer in a five day advancement camp this past summer. She led the relay and established the top archery score with her 36 points. The girls garnered a total of 84 points in archery, which are converted to 84 seconds taken off the final time bringing the final time to 8:36.
All the girls began the relay with a 200 yard dash. Then, without wasting anytime they whipped out 15 consecutive pushups. Immediately after that they each performed a different 10 yard multi-dimensional aerobic exercise. Finally, they grabbed a bow without any sighting devices. They had to shoot a quick descending ladder of distances from 50 yards to 10 yards (2 arrows per target).
“I want to do this again and work on improving my time,” said the motivated Hassell.
Emily Woodhouse, a spectator watching in amazement, commented, “It was fun to watch. As a runner, this sounds like so much fun. I hope to join the program this spring.”
“It was very interesting. A lot of young people will want to do this event,” said Meredith Johnson.

World Record Weber has been busy setting and re-setting abdominal exercises at Recordsetter. Below is a look at some tough ab exercises for overall strength and endurance training.
Back on October 7, 2014, Weber re-set the “concrete one arm planked world record” with a new time just under 10 minutes. This exercise not only tests core strength, but one arm muscle stabilizers. It is good to train one side and then repeat on the other side.
Next, on October 12, 2014, Weber re-set the “strict form spiderman cadence test” record with her new mark of 11 minutes. The goal of this test is to complete ten repetitions of a 6 count exercise each minute until failure. It is a new and improved type of alternative pushup cadence test, which tests flexibility and small and large muscle groups.
Finally, on October 20, 2014, Weber tested her latest ab exercise “sprinter’s situp” as she went for the first ever world record at Recordsetter. It is a consecutive ab exercise similar to a knee tuck as it tests balance and ab strength. Each rep of the exercise must be performed in 3 seconds or less. Legs and arms are not allowed to touch ground. Low back must touch ground and come up perpendicular at apex as opposite bent arm goes toward opposite bent knee.
I have been setting physical fitness world records since 2008. Sports historians have referred to me as the Modern Day Jack LaLanne as a woman. This September 26, 2014, would be Jack LaLanne’s 100th birthday if he were alive.
He died in 2011 and will be remembered as “The Godfather of Fitness” after revolutionizing the health and fitness field. Just in time for his 100th birthday, I have now reached setting 500 world records, capturing 100 sport victories, and I completed what LaLanne considered to be his hardest strength feat of his career.
On August 13, I completed 1,000 pushups and 1,000 chin-ups in just over two hours as a tribute to LaLanne, one of my personal heroes. It was his hardest feat because his skin peeled off his hands.
I prepared for two years and I had no issues. In 107 days I set 100 exercise records up to one hour in duration, which is the world record.
LaLanne and I had different upbringings, but our careers run parallel. We were nonconformists who set our own standards. We were going to achieve our goals despite obstacles.
I grew up in Southwestern, PA, in a family of healthcare professionals where exercise and proper eating were instilled regularly, while LaLanne grew up weak and sickly from a junk food diet. His life changed at 15 when he heard a health lecture from pioneer Paul Bragg where he was “born again.”
I blossomed in middle school, while LaLanne blossomed in high school. I captured a dozen physical fitness records during middle school. I was off the charts in physical fitness and I competed with the boys for titles. These dozen middle school victories with my 88 overall career athletic wins covering 17 sports is where I get my 100 total victories to date.
“We have been friends since fifth grade,” said Karly Sammel, my classmate and long-time friend. “My first wow moment of Alicia was when I saw her do the flexed bar hang for a couple minutes in gym class. No one could do that. Then, people were making excuses so they would not need to compete against her.”
We had to go to stations and complete exercises in gym class. The boys would not let me on the pull-up bar so I pushed one off and did 35 consecutive pull-ups.
“I heard guys saying over and over ‘Oh my God’. The gym teachers’ eyes were popping out of their heads. The boy’s gym teacher grabbed her muscle and became more shocked,” continued Sammel.
It was like a dream. Nearly 100 students and faculty gathered to watch me compete against the boys in different events.
“Alicia surprised everybody. We watched her showdown the boys in a 600 yard dash. I just remember her blowing everybody away at everything,” recalled Sammel.
Everybody was talking about my athletics and my public speaking too. LaLanne developed into a motivational force and was a top public speaker and personality.
“Alicia demonstrated skills and competencies in writing and public speaking well beyond her chronological age. She presented an 8th grade career speech on marine biology that has been the most original, well-organized, and informative presentation I have encountered,” mentioned 8th grade English teacher, Karen Bucy.
By high school, LaLanne became a star football player and wrestler. He hid his bagged lunch of veggies and nuts, so no one would make fun of him.
I self-coached myself in track, triathlon, and cross country to a total of eight medals at National Championships.
“We were on swim team together our senior year. We had a losing streak and had a meeting to figure out what to do,” recalled Sammel. “Alicia just jumped up and started giving a motivational talk.”
The girl’s team began winning and kept winning. Five girls took top places at the State Championships.
“I think people needed her to inspire them to do their best,” expressed Sammel.
LaLanne went to college in San Francisco and earned a Chiropractic degree. He opened the nation’s first health and fitness club in Oakland, CA, in 1936, where he put fitness on the map.
I went to Duquesne University, then transferred to Florida. I earned a degree in Telecommunication, then pursued Biology, a doctorate in physical therapy, and became a licensed massage therapist. I held the first ever world record physical fitness day in Clermont on April 28, 2012.
I have guided seven athletes to world records in fitness and archery and all of us combined have set more than 400 records in Clermont giving the area international acclaim.
LaLanne set many “firsts.” Most notably, he had the first and longest running exercise show called “The Jack LaLanne Show.” He was the first person to perform strength and endurance feats. He was the first trainer to have both genders and all ages working with weights.
“Alicia breaks barriers,” mentioned Sammel.
I was the first woman to set and hold many strict form military exercises. Currently, I compete against men for titles at Recordsetter. I am the only woman inducted into the Official Pushup Hall of Fame. In May, all the branches of the US Military sought me out to provide guidance in preparing women to pass their pull-up test.
We inspire fitness in a fun way. LaLanne would sing, dance, and perform tricks with his dog. I perform fitness comedy. I have reached one million views on my 145 YouTube videos with this genre.
“The world needs more of Alicia to inspire them,” added Sammel.
