Former Royal Oak resident will attempt to break his 15th Guinness World Record
Fitness professional and former Hollywood Stuntman, Ron Sarchian (WorldRecordRon.com) will attempt to break his 15th Guinness World Record starting on Friday, June 19th at 12pm (noon). Sarchian will try to break “Longest Marathon Striking a Punch bag – Punches & Kicks” by punching and kicking for at least 25 consecutive hours. The attempt will take place at Get Fit NOW! Gym located at 1625 N. Main St., Royal Oak, MI 48067. Ron will be wearing Rip Toned knee sleeves and elbow sleeves to help support his joints during this marathon event.
“I am thrilled to make this attempt in my hometown of Royal Oak”, says Sarchian. “We are raising money for Front Line Appreciation Group of Metro Detroit. (FLAG). This organization buys meals from Detroit area restaurants and delivers these meals to front line health care workers at more than 40 hospitals throughout metro Detroit. Our front-line health care workers are courageous. Punching and kicking a heavy bag, for a few hours, is the least I can do to help.”
Get Fit Now! Gym owner Shawn Fitzpatrick is thrilled to be a part of a world record attempt. “We are excited to host this event and proud to be able to support a great cause. While it feels like things are slowing down and we are getting back to our “normal” daily grind, our front-line workers are still working hard, and this service is still very much needed.”
Sarchian is a certified personal trainer and a group fitness instructor with a background playing college and semi-pro football, boxing, kickboxing, and road cycling, mountain biking and he has also been a professional stuntman for 25-years. This attempt is open to the public and we encourage people to come watch and donate. Donations can be given at the door and by visiting flagmetrodetroit.org or venmo.com/getfitnowgym.
