Olympic Games Workout for families athens (14)

Family Olympic Games Workout

    Ready? Set. Go! Enjoy a morning like no other with your very own Family Olympic Games Workout. Spark a little friendly competition while taking part in lessons, games and races on the track where the first modern Olympic Games was held! Perfect for families who like ancient history and staying active, this is sure to be a highlight of your trip

    On the day, you’ll first learn how important the Ancient Olympic Games were, and how the Modern Olympics were created from their image. You’ll then visit a neoclassical building that was part of the Olympic Village – your first step into the world of champions! 

    Afterward, you’ll partake in a Discus and Javelin workshop. These ancient sports have been around for thousands of years, and you’ll get to learn how to do them properly in the very same place they used to be played. You can even try your luck at the high jump, or test your strength with the shot-put.

    Finally, the games begin! The big event will take place at the Panathenaic Stadium – the backdrop of the first modern Olympic Games, and now your Family Olympic Games. You’ll race along the track, test your speed and agility, and find out who the champion of the day is. In the end, you can stand on the winner’s podium, truly living that Olympic dream.

    • Maria was highly responsive and helped to find just the right tour to fit our schedule and interests. Glad we did the Olympic Athlete experience! We had so much fun learning how to throw the discus, javelin and shot put. And then running relays around the Olympic stadium… super special! Kate, our guide, was high energy and knowledgeable- not only about history but giving great recommendations for lunch and other places to tour. We would definitely recommend Kids Love Greece and use them again!
