Worcester Native Katy Kellett Sets The World-Record For The Jump-Squat


CHELMSFORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A local mom has set the world-record in jump-squats.

Katy Kellett started a virtual kick-boxing fitness class when the coronavirus pandemic started last March.

Little did she know, it would spark her curiosity to become a recorded-setter.

Instructor CaraMia Pandozzi of Driven Self Defense would have her attendees warm-up with two minutes of low-interval jump squats.

After asking everyone how many they had completed, Kellett reported over one hundred.

Having by far the highest number of completed jump squats, she then looked in The Guinness World Records.

To train, the Worcester native would combine her virtual fitness classes with running and active recovery days.

With multiple cameras, timekeepers, witnesses, and attorneys present, Kellett broke the record with 76 jump-squats in one minute.
