2016 Halloween Athletic Extravaganza

By Weber Way to Wellness Reporter

World Record Weber’s favorite holiday is Halloween for the fun, creativity, and characters that come with it. This year she had 4 days of Halloween events, which included two Inaugural Championship competitions for youth athletes.

Double Endeavor Halloween Championship Weekend

On October 29th, World Record Weber hosted a Halloween Archery Contest, which tested new and veteran archer’s skills at Halloween targets (where a lot of pumpkin smashing took place). The contest was 10 times more challenging than shooting at regular targets, but after a lot of “warming up” all the archers excelled with flying black and orange colors.

A new team called Constellations prevailed on the female side to take individual first (Lanissa with 15pts) and second places (Jadyn with 11pts). Veteran 2 x champion archer, Indaya of the Camo Hunters, took third place with 7pts. On the male side, Robin Hood (Matteo) won with 28pts, brothers Alex and Nicholas tied for second place with 26 pts, and Henry from the legendary team called The Rubies secured third place with 17pts.

The adrenaline for Halloween competitions was just beginning to brew as some athletes returned the following day and new athletes poured in for the Inaugural Halloween Cross Country One Mile Championship.

World Record Wonder Woman challenged the excited youth runners to what must be one of the toughest one mile races in the state of Florida. Prior to this competition, Weber (who has competed all over the state and nation) ran the mile course twice in 6:19 each time. Her time is a little more than a minute slower than what she would do on flat grass. She warned the racers that this is very tough and times would be slower than normal. Acting as the pace setter aka Rabbit, the Wonder Woman got the runners off to a whip, roaring start where they huffed and puffed to an incredible triumph (where approx 1,000 meters was on 12 percent grade hills and the remaining 0.4 miles were rolling or flat).

New cross country runner, nine year old JP, took the victory in 7:56 followed by teammates Nicole in 8:54 and Eli in 9:23. They took 1-2-3 and represented the Mariners.

Cody who helped set a Global Running Day world record, took 4th place. Our male and female Halloween Archery Champions, Matteo and Lanissa, finished this challenging course and called this their first-ever running race as they crossed the line in 5th and 6th place.

“The harder the challenge, then the sweeter the victory,” said Matteo who had a terrific Halloween weekend.

“It feels amazing to win archery, but I like to challenge myself at events where they are difficult for me,” mentioned Matteo.

Lanissa agreed with Matteo. “It feels good to try this run because I never raced before. It was a great motivation to get me out there. It felt great to win in archery yesterday with the top competition,” said Lanissa.

All athletes agreed that they were happy that Coach Weber challenged them to this tough cross country course rather than give them an easy, flat race.

Now, these motivated young athletes will prepare for their next events as they remember and are inspired by the words from Matteo,

“The harder the challenge, the sweeter the victory.”

CLERMONT, Florida—On the 8th day of the new year 2011, we ask fitness expert, Alicia Weber, how she feels as she looks back at her record 24 world records in strength, speed, & endurance she set in 2010. 

Alicia replies, “I feel that I accomplished my goals for that year.  My adrenaline pumps and I prepare the best I can and I exceeded every goal.  I am a possibility thinker with an insatiable desire to strive for difficult tasks.  They were all very challenging and required a great amount of possibility thinking and focus in addition to physical fitness.”

What do you look forward to in 2011?  Alicia says, “I never totally know what to expect and goals change, but I always think BIG enough for God to fit into all my goals!  This will be a year that my success has significance for those in Lake County, Fl – I have some very exciting “fitness makeovers” and “fun fitness challenges” I will be hosting with awesome prizes.

Here is a Review of Alicia’s 24 World Records set in 2010.
(Scroll to bottom for her 10 Sports  Video where you can watch her set a World Record!! )

Feb 6-March 9, 2010-Alicia Weber started her 33 day “5 Areas of Physical Fitness Challenge” with a 30 minute pull up world record enroute to a new mind-blowing 1 hour pull up record where she blew away her old record by 161 reps for 721 reps.  The one hour event is very grueling because you need to find a pace and keep it the whole hour.  She kept a pace of 12 reps a minute.  Then, 21 days later she did another mind blowing endurance feat with 680 chin ups in an hour (145 reps over her former record)!  These 1 hour events are taxing on the muscles, but she is so well trained that in between these two endurance feats, she wasn’t recovering, but setting more records (one every 2 and ½ days)!  In between these feats, she set 6 world records ( 2 shorter duration chin up WRs, 2 single-leg speed jump rope WRs, a jump rope running WR, and a Ring Dip (L-feat) 1 minute WR)!!  Then, March 1-9, Alicia set 4 more world records in pushups as she increased the level of difficulty by adding medicine balls to pushups.

Alicia states, “This was the most grueling of my 2010 records because of the focus required for these records for the 33 day duration.  Near the end, I made the challenge harder when I started getting mentally fatigued by pushing myself in 3 types of medicine ball pushup world records, which is equally a mental challenge as it is a physical challenge.  It was a thrill of victory when I captured 11 world records and 2 rare strength feats in 33 days and set world records in all 5 areas of physical fitness!

May 27, 2010-Alicia Weber focused solely on maximum strength world records within a 45-minute time frame and took the challenge of setting 6 world records in 45-minutes to try & tie the # Legendary Jesse Owens did in Track and Field with Maximum Speed and Long Jump World Records set May 25, 1935.  However, Alicia missed on one, which she later captured during “Weber World Record Week.”  All in All, Alicia set an incredible 5 world records within 45 minutes in 5 strength events on May 27, 2010 in this order (1.  37 pull ups in 1 minute, 2.  35 pull ups in a row, 3.  30 chin ups in a row, 4.  11 handstand pushups in 1 minute, & 5.  18 ring dips in 1 minute).  Click here to purchase this 45 Minute World Record on digital download.

June 11, 2010-Alicia Weber was feeling ABSolutely FABulous and felt it was time to blow away her current 30-minute sit-up world record.  She did just that in flying colors as she blew away her previous mark by nearly 200 reps!!  Her current world record is now 795 reps in 30-minutes (a sit-up every 2.26 seconds)!  Click here to learn correct sit-up form.

Sept 11-17, 2010-Alicia Weber set 5 world records during “Weber World Record Week”.  First, she combined running, coordination, and strength together as she went jump rope running around the track using a 1.5 lbs jump rope.  Alicia, a former National Champ Track runner states, “Jump Rope running is night and day to regular running.  It is WAY more difficult and strenuous and if there is any wind – forget it!  I picked to set these jump rope running records in September, since there is little to no wind.”  Next she finally captured the world record for the world’s most difficult type of dip – Ring L position dips.  Finally, she tested herself in endurance and captured the 3-minute Deep Squat World Record following then with re-setting her 10-minute one arm pushup world record.

Alicia Weber is featured on the World Record Holder’s Registry.  Alicia Weber is also in the world record book, “Believe the Unbelievable.”  Quite contrary to 2009, Alicia spent all 2010 setting world records and only competed in 1 sport.  In 2009, Alicia set only 8 world records, but she competed in 10 sports!
