Historic Workouts® is available for either one-on-one training or small groups up to 12 people. It makes a fun corporate event for employee team building, birthday parties, and is a #1 hit for bachelorette parties! This is also 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. We burn and learn, but it’s also loads of fun!
