Ashrita Furman

A self-described record-breaker, Ashrita Furman has committed 40 years to break Guinness World Records. Since setting his first record of 27,000 jumping jacks in 1979, the native New Yorker has gone on to break over 600 official Guinness Records and currently holds more than 191 records. Furman credits his meditation teacher, Sri Chinmoy, for the remarkable endurance and strength he has realized.
