Wicks currently holds the record title himself with a HIIT class of 3,804 participants he led in London in 2017 – and has now called upon the city of Dubai to be ‘In It, Together’ to beat that record.

In order to break the Guinness World Record, all participants must complete the full 30-minute workout without stopping. Participation is for people aged 18 years and above, with registration details available online.
