New World Record on the cards in aid of Bedford Hospital charity and Friends

Alex Goulding now has seven Guinness World Records

Bedford’s serial Guinness World Record holder, Alex Goulding is attempting to break his eighth world record this Saturday, all in aid of Bedford Hospital Charity and Friends.

27-year old fitness enthusiast Goulding has already broken seven world records after setting out on a number of record-breaking feats since June 2021.

His eighth attempt is for a record he already holds, ‘The most side jump push-ups with a clap in one minute’, which currently stands at 45.

“I’m hoping to get over 50!” says Alex, a man not content with merely breaking records once, but keen to push himself to the limit.

The pressure will be ramped up on Saturday however as Alex attempts to complete the World Record attempt in front of a crowd, although his experience on Italian TV should come in handy on that front.

Raising awareness

Alex’s charity contributions don’t end there, as on Saturday 10th September he will be a part of another charity initiative to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer.

A team representing GoFit Nutrition are attempting a grand total of 14,000 push ups in three hours in Hitchin, with each individual completing a minimum of 1,000 push ups each.

There is also a public workout in the pipeline in order to raise awareness for men’s mental health that is taking place on top of the multi-storey car park at Lurke Street in Bedford, in conjunction with Samsons Academy.
