Old Port Historic Tours – The Only Historic Tour in Portland to Make the Top 10 in BEST Entertainment and Activity in Portland, Maine’s BEST 2022 Awards! Come See Why!

Created and designed by fitness professional Leigh Rush Olson for all fitness levels, this 90-minute (up to 2 hours) fun, yet challenging, workout begins with a warm-up in Monument Square followed by speed walking and/or light jogging past many historic buildings to landmarks and monuments throughout the Old Port learning historical facts and anecdotes of the area’s rich history since 1632 all while performing various exercises for a super total body workout!

Historic Workouts® is available for personal 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!

Leigh Rush Olson has been a certified professional Fitness Instructor with AFAA (Athletics Fitness Association of America) since 1992, holds a BA in History from CUNY Brooklyn College, and is a Portland History Docent with the Maine Historical Society in collaboration with Portland Landmarks. Moreover, Leigh is a Portland native, so you’re in good hands!

Old Port Historic Workouts® is available from May through October and is truly a unique experience for the history buff who loves fitness! Wear something comfortable to work out in and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
