CurraNZ athletes achieve two Guinness World Records in five days!

on June 24, 2022
The CurraNZ-powered World Record breakers from Manor Gym, who nailed the longest continual workout on June 22


In a true ‘acid test’ for CurraNZ, we were proud to be part of two Guinness World Records involving some serious feats of human endurance.

Andy Stone used CurraNZ to complete 70 Half Irons in just over 70 days

Staffordshire’s Andy Stone (right) kicked it off by completing 70 consecutive Half Ironman triathlons in just over 70 days on Friday, June 17.

The relative newcomer to triathlon was recommended CurraNZ by LJMU nutritionist, Dr Juliette Strauss, when fatigue and recovery became a problem almost halfway through his 5,000-mile challenge.

With its endurance, fat oxidation and muscle recovery benefits, CurraNZ fit the bill for Andy’s daily 70.3-mile slog.

To break up the daily swim-bike-run routine, he even entered the Staffordshire 70.3 event (left) to have a change of scene.

Andy said: “I was using CurraNZ three times a day since day 34 and I’m super impressed by how less tired I felt at the end of each day, which helped me mentally too. I also noticed my legs were less tight too.

“Incredibly, it seems I’m a big responder, as on my first day using CurraNZ, I was shocked to see I recorded PBs for my swim and bike.”


12 Londoners set new record for longest continual workout over 40 hours - the 'Longest Day'


CurraNZ was used by the 12 record-breakers who completed the longest continual workout in 40 hours


Fast-forward to June 22, and a team of 12 from Manor Gym in London set a new record for the longest continual workout of 40 hours - 'The Longest Day, 2022'.

Mimi Gardner is a big CurraNZ fan

Mimi Gardner (left), fresh from a bronze medal at the Hyrox World Championships in the US in May, was one of the 12-person team who took on the 40-hour challenge.

She reported afterward: “It was a blast and I had endless energy. We all did. We did amazingly well and I am feeling physically really well.

 “The team have loved using CurraNZ, which has been crucial in helping our endurance, reduce fatigue and of course, recovery to battle through.”
