Unfortunately, we are still not allowed to open our indoor facilities but every now and then we can happily reintroduce some of our sports programmes.
 
Starting next week (the week of March 29) bootcamp and running lessons will take place at and around Olympos. Of course we adhere to the measures that are currently in force. Small groups of 2 to 4 people, depending on whether we leave the site, and of course with a distance of 1.5 meters.

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!
