These warriors are hoping to make their way into the record books. Inspire Fitness in Stamford joined studios across the country in an attempt to set a new guinness world record for the most people to do push ups for one minute.

"From 12:30 to 12:31 today, there are going to be 54 Training for Warriors affiliates, all with packed houses doing push ups," said Brian McMaster, co-owner of Inspire Fitness.

"I think we are going to crush it. We are a pretty powerful network of committed individuals," said Wendi Hoak, co-owner of Inspire Fitness.

So what makes a good push up? Before the attempt, Brian & trainer Will Meyers broke down how to do a proper push up.

"You'll see the crease of his elbows are not pointing toward each other but pointing a little bit forward so when he decends down into the push up, his elbows come back rather than flair out to the side," explained McMaster.

With proper form practiced, it was time to attempt to set a new world record.

"People like to feel part of something. At Inspire Fitness, there is really a strong sense of community and with the purpose being to inspire fitness literally. We like to do things that back people and their wellness and fitness goals and make them feel part of something bigger than themselves," said Hoak.

Currently the record stands at 700 people. We'll find out if Inspire Fitness helped set a new Guinness World Record later this week.
