Irish Olympic athletes Phil Healy and David Gillick, have the enthusiastic support of young fitness fans Juneau (10) and Casey (7) Conroy, as they announce that Fyffes is to resume its children’s fitness programme of live school visits in September following a two year break during Covid.

Schools in Galway have been invited to register for Fyffes’ programme of fitness visits which will return to schools in September after two years of being online.

Since launching just four years ago, over 1,260 pupils in Galway were introduced to the Fit Squad programme before the pandemic forced Fyffes to take its message online.

Delivered by Irish health and fitness expert Tom Dalton, each 45-minute visit includes an active workout designed to improve children’s general fitness through engagement and fun-filled activities, supported by talks and tips on healthy eating.

The upcoming programme will see 7,500 pupils from schools across the country participate in an interactive Fit Squad session between September and March.
