Israeli fitness buffs gathered in Tel Aviv held the biggest Pilates class ever in Israel Friday morning.

The goal was to break the Guinness World Record for largest class on International Pilates Day, with 5,000 people, but it fell short. However, the class was the biggest in Israel and the biggest mixed-gender Pilates class in the world.
