|Rob Powell, has been called
pound for pound, the strongest athlete in History. He is
arguably the Greatest Athlete In History, although Rob insists
that honor belongs to Jim Thorpe. One thing is for certain,
with 4 GUINNESS CERTIFIED WORLD RECORDS and 4 WORLD FITNESS
CHAMPIONSHIP TITLES, in a row, from 2001 - 2004, Rob Powell is
the GREATEST EXTREME FITNESS, and ENDURANCE ATHLETE IN
HISTORY. This is a title Rob is recognized for, worldwide. No
one else has ligitimately come close to his mentally tough,
and physical performances. |
Rob is also recognized,
internationally, as ''The World's Toughest Man''. A title Rob
jokes about, saying, '' how did they measure that one?'', and
''The World's Fittest Man'', a title once held by Martial
Artist, Bruce Lee.
Rob Powell has over 150 Course and World
Records involving Fitness, Running, Cycling, Swimming, Rowing,
Climbing, Hiking, Triathlons, Weightlifing, Calisthenics,
Track and Field, and Martial Arts. He also has over 1,000 victories and awards in these fields and Team Sports.
The Guinness World
Records he shattered, and the Sport he created, THE WFC,
(World Fitness Championships), measures Pure Power, by testing
an athletes Speed, Strength, Endurance and Quickness. These
Events Include...a 2 Mile Swim, 12 Mile Run, 12 Mile Hike,
1250 Push-Ups, 1250 Leg Lifts, 1250 Jumping Jacks, 110 Mile
Cycle, 20 Mile Row, 20 Mile Elliptical, 3,250 Abdominal
Crunches, and 300, 000 Pounds of Weights Lifted, using only
Bench Press, Lat Pulls, Seated Rows, Tricep Extension, and
Bicep Curls, with a 30,000 pound minimum of each discipline.
Completed in.... 22:11:40, 19:17:38, 18:36:15, and 17:45:03.
All the events were witnessed by dozens of
Guinness World Record Certified Officials, and every second
was Videotaped, capturing each and every discipline, event by
event, mile by mile, and lift by lift.
Rob was asked by Guinness World Records
to record and write the rules that he used. These rules and
events remain and will remain the Standard for Fitness, and
the Standard for the Guinness World Record's, Physical Fitness
Challenge, and The WFC Competitions and
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, THE WFC ARCHIVES, nor
any other creditable organization in the World will recognize
any attempt, without following these Rules, with WFC
Certified Officials, and Videotaping of every second, for
obvious reasons. No one would refuse to follow these Rules,
have these WFC Certified Officials, and Videotape every
second, of coarse, unless they had something to hide.
The WFC, (World Fitness Championships), which he formed, based on his Guinness World Records, has a loyal and dedicated following, worldwide.
His life has been full of obvious challenges, obstacles, adventures, and victories which many find fascinating.
However, Rob can testify that no one succeeds without setbacks.
As Rob says, ''it's not how many times you get knocked down, it's how fast you get up and back into the fight''.
