A GOSNELLS per­sonal trainer is the new Guin­ness World Record holder for do­ing the ex­er­cise gym­go­ers love to hate. Levi Kis­sick Ponga last month smashed the record for the most chest- to- ground burpees in one minute to raise money for cancer re­search ahead of Daf­fodil Day to­day.

Mr Ponga said it was a cause close to his heart af­ter watch­ing his older brother Cory go through prostate cancer treat­ment and los­ing fam­ily mem­bers to the dis­ease, in­clud­ing his grand­fa­ther.

“As I was do­ing it, I was telling my­self that the pain is noth­ing like what cancer pa­tients go through,” he said.

The fa­ther- of- two man­aged 34 chest- to- ground burpees in just 60 sec­onds – beat­ing the pre­vi­ous record by four – in front of a crowd of more than 70 sup­port­ers at Plus Fit­ness Wat­tle Grove.
