Current Information

As a result of the government-imposed lockdown, we have been forced to close our indoor facilities as from 15 December 2020. Whilst this was to be expected, the announcement still hurt badly. 
 
Outdoor sports: Tennis, Climbing, Dry-tooling
We are happy to inform you that our outdoor facilities are allowed to remain open to be used for recreational tennis (singles only) and recreational climbing (top-rope and dry-tooling). Visit the Sports Programmes page for further information and to book up. 
 
Stay active at home:  free online home work-outs & active breaks 
Check our YouTube channel to join in any of more than 60 different free home work-outs, varying in intensity and length (10-40 mins). You can watch them back to take part in any time you want. 
 
You can also take short active breaks during your studies, while working from home or during a Netflix session: on work days we broadcast two live active breaks per day, even during the X-mas holidays. These are ‘no sweat’ work-outs, so no need to change.
 
Stay healthy, stay active and take care of yourself and each other!

SIT LESS, FEEL BETTER!

Sportcentrum Olympos offers a new program that allows you to change your sitting behaviour: the Active Break is a 15-minute session of dynamic exercises, live in your living room and led by an Olympos instructor.

 

What is an Active Break?

An Active Break is a 15-minute energizer break of light exercises, such as stretching and fitness games. An Olympos instructor will do a live online session in order to renew your energy mentally and physically after long working or study hours. An Active Break is also ideal to replace your pre-corona commute. Unfortunately this moment of exercise is no longer possible for many people, now that we often have to work or study from home. Make sure you get enough exercise and join in! You can participate in your normal work clothes thanks to the ‘no sweat’ exercises!

 

Who can participate? 

The light exercises are beneficial for anyone and the Olympos instructor will make the Active Break sessions accessible to every body type and every age. There is no specific skill required and no particular clothing. The Active Break is a fun and accessible break of the pattern of the day and an easy way to improve your health.

 

How to participate?

The lessons are broadcast on the Olympos YouTube channel. This channel can be found by clicking on this link or by searching YouTube for  'OlymposUtrecht'. On this channel you can see which lesson is broadcast live and you also have access to a database of previously recorded workouts.

In addition to our 'regular' extensive OlymPas sports programmes, we will also keep providing the free online workouts which you can do at home. On the Olympos YouTube-channel you can find a range of varied, short and free home workouts. Not live, but with the option to watch them back. If you got a favourite one, you will be able to watch it as often as you please! We will regularly post new workouts on Facebook and Twitter.
 
Home workouts
The workouts range from yoga, cardio boxing, Tabata strength power and Cross challenge to steps, butt/belly home workouts, dance fitness and core workouts. The workouts usually last 20 to 40 minutes each. An ideal start or end to your day or an energising break. 
 
If you prefer something a little slower, you can also opt for one of the senior fitness home workouts. 
 
Running: exercises and schedules
If you prefer to keep up your fitness outdoors, start running! 
Our running instructors Dirk, Rafael and Kjeld recorded online strength, mobility and technique exercises as well as two-practices-a-week schedules both for beginners and more practised runners ( > 5 km). 
 
Moreover, you can also take part in the ‘real’ running practices (courses, 10 weeks), for various levels. 
 
Short active breaks
Do you just wish to break the long sessions of sitting at your desk, stretch your legs, relax your (neck/shoulder) muscles, or take your eyes off the screen? Attend a short active breaks of approx. 10 minutes!
