I finally got the video uploaded. It’s a very shortened version of the total video as I think watching an hour of this would get old in a hurry. I have to thank my very patient judges as they had to be intently watching the entire time to make sure they counted every jump. Also, if you’re into reading newspaper articles, the News Observer in Raleigh ran a story on this which you can read by Clicking Here. My favorite line is where he says I jumped at “a pace to rival the power of Aquaman.” So the moral of the story, even Aquaman wouldn’tRead More →

Yesterday I broke my 9th current Guinness World Records title, this one was for jumping rope underwater the most times in one hour! What!? How does that work? That seems to be the overwhelming response I get when I tell someone what I was training for. Well, it’s hard to describe, but basically, you jump rope while holding your breath as many times as you can for an hour. But no one can hold their breath that long. True…but you don’t have to do the whole thing on just one breath. I’ll explain that in a moment, but to let you in on what IRead More →

A couple weeks ago Alicia and I headed down to Florida. We had some shows in the area, but timed the trip to coincide with my old jump rope partner and his wife visiting Disney. We had a blast hanging out as this was the first time we have had no obligations except for just having some fun. While we were there I was able to setup dinner with another ex-teammate. In fact, this was the first time in 17 years that the three of us had been together. Son Nguyen, Trent Cunningham and Peter Nestler. It certainly doesn’t look like it now, but backRead More →

This past year I have really been getting some traction from this Guinness World Records thing. I’ll find out next week whether I will be on a TV show that is looking to feature some world record holders (keeping it on the low down until I find out for sure). Today I received an email from Guinness that one of my records is part of their “Fan Choice”. VOTE HERE if you would like to support this one (make sure you vote for ‘fastest 100 m jumping rope on one leg).In the description they posted about my record I’m referred to as “a bit ofRead More →

Today I broke my 8th Guinness World Record. Actually, a better term might be {insert powerful word here} since I doubled the previous record. My wife will be the first to tell you that I am very excited to have this one done because it is my final one footed record! I must be known at the GWR office as the one footed guy due to the plethora of records I have completed by hopping on one foot. Today’s record was for the longest duration hopping on one foot on a treadmill. Check it out. Looks like fun doesn’t it! Not really. I have spentRead More →

One of the most popular parts of my show is undoubtedly the glow rope routine I do at the end. Of course this is not always possible at every show since some buildings are full of windows, others can’t turn off the lights (or there’s one right in the middle of the room that no one can figure out how to turn off) or the show is outside. I’ve always enjoyed this part since it’s such a visual feast and everyone loves it. However, there are certain pit falls that I’ve run into with this over the years… The primary issue is that I forgetRead More →

It’s amazing how fast time flies during the summer. It seems like we just got started and it’s already coming to a close. I’ve had fun performing at camps around the country (but primarily in Texas) and now that I’m home for a bit, I can focus on some world record training. I have been meaning to get on my underwater jump rope training, but have had a hard time getting that done until the last week. A couple days ago we went ahead and did some promo shots for the record (I’m quite optimistic on breaking it) and they came out pretty sweet. It’sRead More →

Is it possible to think that posting another update about another Guinness World Record I broke is getting old? No? I didn’t think so. In that case, let me tell you about my 7th world record. If you have been following my record breaking updates, back in December I broke the record for the fastest mile hopping on one foot while skipping rope. While I was training for that one, I was able to break the record for the fastest mile hopping on one foot (without the jump rope). Last week, I definitively broke that record. Check it out below Four minutes and 50 secondsRead More →

Today I had the opportunity to be the first person ever to do a particular Guinness World Records attempt. Back when I was training for the fastest mile on one foot while jumping rope, I thought that more people might be interested in trying a shorter version of that record (let’s be honest, who really wants to hop a mile on one foot, that’s just crazy talk). So I submitted a new world record idea and they accepted it. Today I met up with my old jump rope coach Mr. Berry and set the bar for this particular record. It was a stormy day outRead More →

I heard it through the grapevine the other day that someone has been trying to beat some of the Guinness World Records I set last year. One of them definitely was broken (my bum skip record is in need of a redo since it has officially been defeated) and the other one is tentative. I decided to take the challenge head on and break the records again. Since I’m still in rehab for my arm, the bum skip record will have to wait as that particular motion is fairly painful at the moment. The football (soccer) juggling record on the other hand, that one IRead More →
