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.
