Amy Hughes is one of the world’s foremost endurance athletes. Known for her enthusiastic attitude and motivational speaking engagements, Amy recently set a brand new Guinness World Record for endurance running on a Sole Fitness TT8 treadmill.
Amy pushes her body to its limits on a daily basis. In the past, she’s taken on quite a few challenges that push the boundaries of what a human body is capable of. In 2015, she ran 250 miles from Oswestry to London. In that same year, she ran a total of 53 miles in just a single day. In 2014, she ran 53 marathons in 53 days, an incredible achievement.
Despite her history of awe-inspiring feats of endurance, according to Amy, beating the Guinness World Record was her most demanding undertaking to date. “The challenge tested both my mental and physical capability to the ultimate limit,” reports Amy. “It was the hardest thing I have ever done… and ever will do.”
To beat the existing Guinness World Record, Amy ran a total of 521 miles in just seven days. From September 1st to September 8th 2016, she ran continuously on a Sole Fitness TT8 treadmill at Manchester's Trafford Center.
The Sole Fitness TT8: A Treadmill Up for the Challenge
Running over 500 miles in a single week is no small feat, even for a world-class endurance athlete. To beat the Guinness World Record, Amy chose the Sole Fitness TT8, gifted to her by the Sole Fitness UK company.
To beat the record successfully, the right treadmill was an absolute must. She couldn’t have done it if the treadmill itself had broken down during the process. After all, most people only use a treadmill for an hour or two per day. Not all treadmills are designed for that kind of continuous usage, so Amy needed one that could handle such a magnitudinous undertaking.
The Sole Fitness TT8 fit the bill. This high-end treadmill’s robust design can handle heavy use with ease. Its extra-wide running surface and reinforced framework provide a solid foundation, capable of handling weight up to 400 pounds. This heavy-duty treadmill is exactly what Amy Hughes needed to achieve her dream of setting a new Guinness World Record.
