Coach Rob Powell
Coach Rob Powell
"Coach" 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 legitimately come close to his mentally tough, and physical performances.
Rob is recognized, internationally, as "The World's Toughest Man". A title Rob jokes about saying, how did they measure that one? Rob has also been called "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, Weightlifting, Calisthenics, Track and Field, and Martial Arts. This is why MMA fighters, elite military, and law enforcement officers have gone to Rob Powell for decades for training in martial arts and fitness. He also has over 1,000 victories and awards in these fields and Team Sports as an athlete and coach.
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...
- 2 Mile Swim
- 12 Mile Run
- 12 Mile Hike
- 1250 Push-Ups
- 1250 Leg Lifts
- 110 Mile Cycle
- 20 Mile Row
- 20 Mile Elliptical
- 3,250 Abdominal Crunches
- 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
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 Archives.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, THE WFC ARCHIVES, nor any other creditable organization in the World will not recognize any attempt, without following these Rules, with Guinness Certified Officials, and Videotaping of every second, for obvious reasons. No one would refuse to follow these Rules, have these Guinness 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''.
