Will Rose Bowl Aquatics Center Get Into Guinness World Records for World’s Largest Water Aerobics Class This Friday?

Join the aqua-aerobics class at The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center to help its Guinness World Record attempt for the largest aqua aerobics class on Friday, October 14 from 4-8 p.m.  

The Guinness record attempt will take place exactly at 5 p.m. Participants must be 16 years or older and must participate throughout the 45-minute aqua aerobics lesson. 

Currently, the world record for the largest aqua-aerobics class is 270 and was organized by Amber Bolton (Australia) in Brisbane, Australia, on 13 October 2019, according to the Guinness World Records.

Jimmy Francis, President and Executive Director of RBAC told Pasadena Now the aerobic class is an opportunity to encourage community members to come as one and have some fun.

“We thought of it as an opportunity to really encourage the community to come together as one, to assemble and break this record.” 

The event will kick off its annual campaign, “Let’s Pool Together,” which raises funds to help support the RBAC, a non-profit dedicated to helping the community invest in their health and wellness by providing aquatic programs. 

“The ‘Pool Together Fest’ is really a celebration of the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center. It’s open to the public focusing on really exposing everyone to all of our great programs and services that we offer,” Francis said.  

“We are more than a pool, and so it’s one of the best ways to display that is by opening up our doors, inviting in the community to see all the things and all the great things that are happening here,” Francis added. 

Aside from the aqua aerobics class, this Friday’s event also features a Pumpkin Splash Patch sponsored by Trader Joe’s, Kid Zone which includes an inflatable obstacle course and face painting, a physical therapy open house, RBAC competitive team activities, photo and information booths, and for adults, a beer and wine garden and more.

The RBAC is located in Pasadena’s Brookside Park at 360 N. Arroyo Blvd., just south of the famous Rose Bowl Stadium. 


The nonprofit, which serves over 450,000 patrons annually, offers year round aquatic and fitness programming to children, youth, families and seniors so that they can achieve the benefits of healthy living habits, regular exercise, and sports training.

“One of the things about the work that we do here is we literally have folks from age probably infants to over a hundred years old in all varying levels of ability, in all varying levels of competitive status,” Francis said. 

“Really, this is a place of wellness, The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center – yes, we have competitive programs, but we are a place of wellness, of fitness, of recreation, a place where you can come retreat from your day, and maybe it’s your mental health that will benefit most from swimming in the pool.” 

RBAC is home to two Olympic-sized pools, two hydrotherapy spas, a spacious exercise and weight room and more. It hosts world-class swim, dive, and water polo teams and a wide variety of programs including physical therapy, water aerobics, warm water exercise, lap swimming, learn-to-swim lessons, land-based fitness, and yoga.
