Will this be the year Lisa Conyers breaks the world record for the most push-ups in an hour? It has been a milestone that has eluded the 50-year-old for the past three years. Her pursuit of this record all started when after she took on the Tour de France push-up challenge, which consisted of 3,000 push-ups across three weeks.
The mother of two didn’t just cruise passed the goal, she more than doubled it with 7,000 completed push-ups. Having surprised herself, she decided to have a go at the record of 1,020 push-ups within an hour.
My first attempt, I did around 780, and the second time I actually did 1,127 but they weren’t deep enough,” says Lisa. “I did go deeper in my third attempt, but I only managed 650 so I need to find a happy medium.”
Breaking the push-up world record isn’t the only thing on Lisa’s radar. Not only does she run around after her 11 and eight-year-old girls, she also trains and prepares to tackle one of the seven summits of the world, Mount Kilimanjaro.
Originating from Kenya, Lisa loves returning to East Africa to tackle to the mountain. So much so she’s summited the world’s fourth-largest mountain four times in the last three years. For Lisa reaching the peak isn’t enough of a challenge.
“I’m in my element up there, and when I get to the top I do my push-ups,” she says. “People sit at the top and say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever had to do, but with Isagenix®, I’m on a completely different level.”
Although reaching the peak is a special feeling, it’s not nearly as rewarding as encouraging other people to achieve their goals.
“It’s a challenging mountain, so some people have some tricky situations going up there,” says Lisa. “I love helping them through their breakdowns and limiting beliefs because it’s so empowering to see them feel amazing up there.”
The feeling of empowerment is something she’s become accustomed to thanks to the inspiring IsaBody Challenge® community. “I don’t have many bad days at training, but there’s always that community there to cheer you on. You just don’t get that anywhere else.”
