A Zumba class in Dagenham is joining an attempt to set the world record for the largest simultaneous work-out.
Fitness group ViSalus is attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous group workout.
The workout will take place on Saturday, January 3 from 12pm to 1pm across thousands of locations – including a Dagenham Zumba class.
Britain is one of 11 countries taking part including Germany, Spain and the US.
The campaign aims to raise awareness for children suffering from obesity and malnourishment and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Oluwaseun Oke, ViSalus’ Essex coordinator, is heading up the Dagenham effort.
She explained: “We’re working with local schools to help children get healthy.”

Her message to Dagenham residents was: “Just turn up – because we need to help the children.”
For every person attending, ViSalus promises to donate 30 meals to Project 10 Kids, an initiative to malnourished children.
