Alicia Weber – 24 World Records in 2010 & 10 Sports in 2009

By:  Weber Way to Wellness Reporter Click here to visit JD Productions.

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!

Weber Sisters Reveal Fitness and Exercise Tips (Part 1)

“Very compatible, yet very different”

The Weber Way to Wellness Reporter interviews the Weber Sisters – two sisters 2 years apart that are both fitness gurus.  Kim Weber is a fitness executive for high-end fitness studios with an Exercise Science B.S. and a Global MBA   Alicia Weber is a Fitness Expert and Fitness/Nutrition/Solutions Consultant with Biology and Communication degrees.

1.        Q.  How long have you both been in the fitness industry and why do you love working out?

Kim Weber has years of training & an advanced education in Yoga & Pilates.
Alicia Weber represented the U.S. in Perth, Austalia, in 2000 for triathlon.

Alicia answers, “We both started as a lifeguard.  When I took my first lifeguard job at 17, people began asking me for swimming and exercise tips.  I was a self-coached world-class triathlete and National Champion runner.  People would look at me and want my help and it stemmed from there and I branched out into fitness training and a variety of facets in health and wellness.  Constantly expanding my physical fitness is extremely exciting for me!!”

Kim answers, “I’ve been in the fitness industry for over ten years.  After being a lifeguard as a teenager, I went on to become a group fitness instructor.  I taught all kinds of classes and got into personal training as well.  After years of training experience, I moved over to the management side where I started managing a Pilate’s studio in Las Vegas, NV.  I fell in love with fitness management and went on to get my MBA to continue with these aspirations.  I love working out because it makes people, especially women, feel good about themselves.  Our self esteem is largely based on how we look and feel.  When we get results we feel energized and accomplished.  This feeling fuels people to change their life and change their world.”

2.        Q.  Exercise was always part of your lives.  What are your favorite types of workouts?

Kim and her lovable pooches out on a walk!
Alicia holding the world record book that she is in between her feet.

Alicia answers, “I love anything that is very challenging (both muscularly and aerobically) in the area of strength, speed, and endurance.  In 2010, I set a record 24 world records in this area of fitness.”

 Kim answers, “I love dance based orthopedic exercises like Pilates and Yoga.  I also love to run and hike outdoors, especially with my dogs.”

3.  Q.  What is your most memorable moment together in exercise?
 
 
Alicia answers, “We were on a family trip in the Badlands and as soon as we arrived in the evening, I jumped out of the car and took off running.  Thank goodness my sister followed after me because she saved my life!!  I accidently began to take off on a 200+ ft high cliff and she grabbed my legs and pulled me back before I fell. I then learned why they are called the Badlands!  My energy levels were out of control (too many endorphins from distance running) as a teenager, but I am under control now.”

Kim answers, “For me it’s probably when we were both on the high school swim team.  I didn’t enjoy it, especially the thought of jumping into a cold pool at 6 am in the dark, freezing Pennsylvania winter weather.  Alicia loved it though.  She used to
give me her flippers when we had to swim laps to help me be less miserable!  At that point I knew I must be more of a land animal!”

Alicia Weber “The Machine” – World Records

By:  Alicia Weber Click here to visit JD Productions.
The images below are Copyrighted to Alicia Weber at AliciaWeber.com

I was first nicknamed “The Machine” in high school when I would run and win cross country races and track and field races from sprint to long distances. I became a 2 x All-American in the 10,000 meters, while in high school at Junior Nationals and I medaled at National Championships in events from 1,500m -10,000 meter runs and 5k cross country.  The nickname of “The Machine” continues as I have over 400 world records in strength, speed, and endurance, and I am a professional fitness trainer.

I graduated from University of Florida where I was a letter winner in Track and Cross Country. I have B.S. degrees in Biology and Communication.  I was then in a Doctorate of Physical Therapy program to expand my specialty of aquatic therapy.  My clients also refer to me as “The Machine” as I train with each and every one of them to motivate them.  When I am not training people, I am training myself in world record setting or training for the 17 sports I compete in on an elite level.  I am really W-I-L-D  about exercise and physical fitness!!!

I must warn you though – I do have an alter ego and I get the urges at times to get off the athletic field and get ON STAGE!  I have been an entertainer for a variety of acts for years!   I am most known for my “One Woman Shows” where I combine “character comedy” with strength feats! I perform Live and I have a line of shows hereHere’s a preview of my 7 character comedy show.

My creative energies carry over into other areas as well.  I am an author, illustrator, and poet.  I published my first book on marine biology and my second book on physical fitness is found here. You can learn more about me as the athlete here and as the fitness professional here.

Now, let’s crank the engine and see what a human performance machine can do…Below are my world records in over 27 categories of exercises (the exercise world records are listed alphabetically). I keep re-setting my own records and I garner new ones.

* NOTE:  Starting in 2012, I am setting world records exclusively with RecordSetter.com, the world’s fastest growing world record book where I also compete with men for overall world records.  I set over 50 world records for women with The Book of Alternative Records from 2008 -2011 – those records are listed below.  CLICK HERE for Alicia’s RecordSetter World Records.

All-Around Athlete, Alicia Weber Sets 11 Physical Fitness World Records and 2 Rare Strength Feats in 33 days!

 By:  Alicia Weber

Whenever I wasn’t exercising as a kid, I would kick back with a book on world record setting athletes and I would get enraptured.  I knew very early on I would be a world record setting athlete.  My doctor grandfather met many of the great athletes I read about and he shared stories with me.  He was a gastroenterologist  that wrote for the American Medical Association and he also knew that I would be a world record holder one day.  He had me be strict with my eating and exercise as he prepared me for a life of discipline and dedication to my passion —sports.

I was inspired most to read about the athletes of the 1920’s – 1960’s that overcame so much to set records and achieve extraordinary athletic achievements. The athletes of those days had to overcome war times, family and personal strife, and the Great Depression.  Today, I am now a world record setting athlete in many record books including…

Believe the Unbelievable: the Ultimate Book of World Records and the People who Pursue Them

I hold over 25 world records in strength, speed, and endurance.  From February 6, 2010 – March 9, 2010, I set 11 world records and 2 rare strength feats covering all 5 areas of physical fitness.

Muscular Strength and Endurance:  I started my world record rampage by re-setting my former 1 hour pullup world record by more than 150 reps for 721 reps an hour(enroute to re-setting my 30-minute WR) on February 6, 2010.  I then re-set my 1 minute, 3 minute, and 1 hr chin up world records.  In early March I became the 1st Woman to set an endurance 1-Arm Pushup World Record by completing 105 reps in 10-minutes. See here for Official Pullup/Chinup  and Pushup World Record Results.

Cardiovascular Strength and Endurance:  During high school an easy day would be jump rope  running around the track 25 times for 10,000 meters. I would use a light weight speed jump rope.  The jump rope endurance training prepared me to set records and compete on the National level during high school in events from 800m -10,000m runs with U.S.A Track and Field.  I started in 7th grade and my best event was the 400m( I qualified for the 1996  Junior Olympic National Championship in that event) but didn’t compete as I focused on my distance running and became a National Champion in distance running.  Today, I started with the 400m jump rope track run and set a world record using a weighted 1.5lbs jump rope on February 21, 2010.  I then set 2 more jump rope world records with the weighted 1.5lbs jump rope in single-foot rope skipping for 30-seconds and 3-minutes.  Visit Alicia’s myspace to watch jump rope videos.

Flexibility and Abdominal Strength and Endurance:
On February 17, 2010, I completed 17 consecutive reps of Ring Dips in 1-minute to set a world record.  The ring dips were done in a difficult way to add the elements of both flexibility and abdominal strength and endurance in with the exercise. I kept my legs in L-Feat position with my legs perpendicular to my torso. *The hardest type of ring dips are where the legs are held straight out and parallel to the ground – those are officially called “Ring L Dips”.

Note:  I also set an abdominal endurance world record on September 26, 2009 where I did 613 situps (legs held down, hands behind ears, elbows must touch lateral knee each time for rep to count) in 30-minutes.

 Balance and Stability:
From March 6 – 9, 2010, I did a variety of strength/balance pushups for records on 2 and 3 med balls measuring 22 cm diameter.  I did 35 reps of pushups while balancing on 3 med balls for an official world record.  I then did 2 other types of balance/strength pushups that  observers described as “rare and difficult”. These 2 other pushups were completed on 2 and 3 med balls with an elevated leg.  Due to the specialization and rare nature of these 2 types of pushups, they were not officially published in the current record books.  However, they may be entered in a future record book.  Med ball balance exercises are very common to Olympic Kayakers.  As a K-1 sprint kayaker, I need to constantly challenge my balance in order to become a better and stronger kayaker, since the sport at the highest level is about being able to balance on such a skinny, tippy boat.  Here are highlights of the 2 types of rare and difficult medicine ball pushups. 


2 Rare and Difficult Strength/Balance Feats

Traveling Trainer & Edutainer | MySpace Video

My current records are 6 reps for a minute of 1 elevated leg 2 med ball pushups (22 cm diameter) and 25 reps for 1 minute of 1 elevated leg 3 med ball pushups.  My World Records are also listed online with World Record Holder’s Republic and the Book of Alternative Records.  I continue to chase new world records and re-set my own.

Outside of world record setting, I compete in 10-sports as an elite athlete and I am a fitness trainer. Some of my sports include sprint kayak, triathlon, trail and mountain distance running, track and field, rowing, road racing, time trial bike racing, open water swimming, and stand up paddle boarding.  I have published a book on physical fitness and it is available online here.
