In an Old Port Historic Workout® there are over 50 historic stops including historical landmarks, architecture, and monuments. We will also discuss famous/legendary people of the area, prohibition and how it all started in the Old Port, some of the hottest restaurants and craft beer bars, the best places for craft beer tastings, waterfront history, the Old Port’s biggest fires, Underground Railroad, shopping, real estate history, and much more all while getting a Total Body Workout! This is a great way for visitors to learn the history of the Old Port without leaving their workout at home while on holiday or business, and it’s fun for locals looking to learn more about their area while getting a great workout at the same time. This is also a #1 hit for Bachelorette parties! We burn and learn, but also loads of fun! Wear something comfortable to work out in and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.

Old Port Historic Workouts® is available from May through October and is great for individuals, couples, or small groups up to a maximum of 12 people. So, whether it’s just yourself for one-on-one training or with a group of friends/family, a Historic Workout is truly a unique experience for the history buff who loves fitness!
