Gym owner tries to break burpee world record

Nick Janowitz, owner and instructor at Patriot Sports and Fitness, is on a quest to become a burpee legend.

Janowitz is attempting to break several world burpee records Monday, including most burpees in 12 hours and most burpees in 24 hours.

He already has one under his belt. Janowitz completed 50 burpees in under one minute, breaking the previous record of 46. 

However, it's not just for the world record, Janowitz's attempt is supporting Love Your Melon, an apparel brand run by that aims to give a hat to every kid battling cancer  and One for the Kids, a charity for Chicago children.
