As the long-awaited, and highly-anticipated fall archery fitness season is only days away from starting, we will have a glance at my 2017 summer endeavor highlights below.
I made a fantastic get-a-way trip to Kauai during July! I got into my creative mode and did a lot of Improv comedy as World Record Weber and Audrey Athletica on this trip as I produced my Kauai Adventures video below.
I awoke each day to the sounds of the ocean and roosters and became inspired to make a relaxation audio ocean poetry CD with 36 poems (the same ones in my first book I wrote called, “Wild Under the Waves” when I was sixteen). This ocean animal package is now available. Contact me if interested at Awinningway@gmail.com
When I returned back to the mainland I was in La La Land for a couple weeks still thinking and feeling like I was in Kauai. Many people were waiting upon my arrival to get back into the swing of fitness, which made me happy! I brought back the Archery Scavenger Hunt Race, which has been highly rated as at top event. This year marked the 2nd Annual event where two records were set!

Of course, I have been very busy with intense training and record breaking. I finally broke a very tough ab record that I have been trying to re-set for 3 years!!

On August 21, 2017, RecordSetter announced that I am an official 1,000 Time Physical Fitness World Record Setter when there was the rare solar eclipse—talk about perfect, hot-to-trot timing!!
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).

CENTRAL FLORIDA, June 10, 2017—Only 3 out of hundreds were selected to be on the 2017 Elite Team in barebow category archery where they train and compete in the the Elite 900 Round Invitational on June 10, 2017. The three selected were chosen for their dedication, determination, and discipline in training both mentally and physically in barebow category archery. They also had to have all won championships. Indaya, Aisha, and Siri of Alicia Weber’s Archery, Fitness, and Sports League performed above and beyond what was expected for their first ever 900 Round! They trained 6-weeks to prepare for the long, grueling event in the Florida heat.
Their event took 3.5 hours in mid-morning where they saw the sun, clouds, and some rain, but they remained on fire the whole time! They kept progressing through the rounds with more and more points and finally they all set age group league records with scores that would give veteran archers a run for their money.
Elite Team Competes and Sets Records in 900 Round
The Elite Archers competed in the Youth Barebow Category Archery 900 Round consisting of 50yds-40yds-30yds with 6 arrows a person and 5 rounds per distance (300 possible points at each distance).
Here are their results and Top Accolade that got them here:
Indaya (age 14) scored 367 pts to set the overall league record and the age 14 record in 900 Round. She is the only girl to win two championships. She won the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Archery Fitness Championships. She has been training for three years.
Siri (age 17) scored 320 pts in the 900 Round to set the Age 17 League Record. She has only been training 6 months and won the Spring 2017 Archery Mind Games Championship.
Aisha (age 13) scored 182 pts to set the age 13 League record in the 900 Round. She won the Fall 2016 Domino Archery Distance Shooting Championship. She is going into her second year of training.
When asked how they felt after their first 900 Round, they all exclaimed, “Unbelievable.”
They agreed that the great, positive coaching elevated them to a high level of performance today. It was a phenomenal feeling of achievement, which was both mentally and physically challenging in a unique way that is very different from other sports.
They will resume training with other athletes in a new program to challenge their skills known as Quigong Archery. If youths are interested in the upcoming program, Contact Alicia at Awinningway@gmail.com

TEAM AWINNINGWAY also became the 6th largest team in the world. A team from French Polynesia was first with 74 youth athletes (age 12 and under), then 4 teams from France placed second thru fifth largest teams ranging from 15 to 28 athletes.
Sixty-four countries and 280 youth athletes (age 12 and under) were represented in the 2017 World Championship. The size of the youth race grew 82 percent from last year. This is the second year for the annual world-wide event where athletes compete on a Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Machine at locations all over the world during a brief period in March.
There was only one returning youth athlete to compete in this world championship on Team Awinningway. Aisha was the first to race and she set a positive note for the rest of the team competition. She improved her time from last year by 44 seconds! The rest of the youth athletes on TEAM AWINNINGWAY were all new first-time indoor rowers. All eleven athletes are archers first and then they focus on other athletic activities to become well-rounded.
TEAM AWINNINGWAY – LARGEST US TEAM IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 2017

Next up was Natalie who became the second fastest on the team as she placed 73rd in the world and 3rd American in a time of 5:27.9 for 1km.
We had an exciting surprise from first-time rower, Jadyn, who became the first American and 39th in the world (fastest on the team) with her time of 4:55.2. She was only 52 seconds off the world champion. She discovered her new talent for indoor rowing in this world championship!

Gretchen was the 11th American and 114th in the world with her time of 7:17.4
There were a total of 21 athletes on TEAM AWINNINGWAY (including adults). Overall, TEAM AWINNINGWAY placed in the TOP 15 largest US Teams in the entire world championship (4,862 competitors). There were over 150 teams just from the US alone (not counting teams from the other 63 countries).

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)
Most new archers look forward to their first bullseye as their mark of success and excitement in archery, but Alicia Weber’s Creative Archery Summer Camp goes above and beyond shooting for Bullseyes. Young campers did not know what to expect other than they would be doing archery. Some waited months for this camp to take place. One thing was certain, Alicia Weber’s Creative Archery was out-of-this-world with jammed-packed activities geared to getting young students to master skills quickly and successfully.
Student-Athletes in Alicia’s archery programs become great athletes and excellent students. They develop mental and physical skills and focus needed to achieve any goal they set their minds on achieving. In spring 2016, all the archer-athletes who won the spring championship were also on the Honor Roll. Excelling in athletics and academics are equally important and the Creative Archery Summer Camp allows students to gear up academically with the math, English, writing, reading, public speaking, health, art, and performing arts experiences all tossed into archery in this one week camp. This camp is a great refresher for students about to head back to school after their long summer break or holiday break.
Highlights from the 2016 Creative Archery Summer Camp are below. Contact Alicia for upcoming sport and academic camps at Awinningway@gmail.com
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.

CLERMONT, FL—-Youth athletes celebrated Father’s Day in an outstanding way. Five athletes (ages 6-14) became pioneers and champions in the second-ever Tag Team Archery Championship. Families watched their kids take on the challenge of trying a new sport all while rooting and roaring from the sidelines!
Fifty-two kids were invited to compete based on their ability and background in playing hockey, soccer, and/or competitive running. Five of these 52 were the brave ones who accepted the challenge.
The coed competition brought kids together who never met before. The kids were placed on teams and encouraged to make new friends as they worked on team spirit and good sportsmanship. The kids were challenged in learning a new sport very quickly, staying positive, becoming aware of their surroundings, learning to react fast, and developing new skills in archery.
Action-Packed Tag Team Archery Championship
The sport involves sprinting and fast footwork over 100 yds. Runners are trying to escape from getting tagged as they travel from a Point A to Point B. The successful runners score goals and earn extra points by then shooting barebow category archery (the hardest type of archery) all while still huffing and puffing from all the running. This is a highly aerobic and action-packed team game. Team N & I won with 52 points. Team C & A took second with 27 points.
They were given 4 minutes of playing in each period with two periods. Their advice was to run, run, run and be fearless to rack up the most possible points. Both teams demonstrated their best efforts and courageous plays and the high scores show it.
“Doing your best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” – Oprah Winfrey
Today was a wonderful day where families came together and new friendships were made as all players won journals. They were able to capture these moments in their journals as they all became pioneers and champions in this new sport.
