“It proved to be an extremely worthwhile experience for the students and staff who took part. It was very easy to register and organise. The personal trainer obviously had a lot of experience working with a large group of children. The children were actively engaged throughout and thoroughly enjoyed their workout. The exercises were easy to follow and simple for us as teachers to remember and implement during PE lessons. The fact that no equipment was necessary is a big bonus for us. The children were delighted to receive their bananas and reward from Fyffes after their session. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Fyffes’ programme to other schools.”

“In March 2019, Fyffes Fit Squad visited our school for a fun filled action packed morning. All kids really enjoyed the physical exercise lesson and the Fyffes Fitness Team generated great excitement. It was a great opportunity for our pupils to learn new fitness strategies and receive advice on healthy eating. The Fyffes Fitness Team were very friendly and generous ensuring all children received bananas and a memento of the day. I would highly recommend Fyffes Fit Squad to all schools. It is a tremendous opportunity to avail of if possible.”

“We were so impressed with the Fyffes Fit Squad at Dromintee P.S. The children had a fantastic morning with Eamon and Tom. Learning about healthy diet and getting smoothie recipes and then taking party in fun activities! All teachers involved raved about the rapport, enthusiasm and professionalism of the Fyffes Fitness Team! The kids loved their free bananas and pencil cases. I would definitely recommend the Fyffes Fit Squad!”

“We had a fun and energetic visit at Holy Trinity N.S. Mervue, from the Fyffes Fit Squad who attended our school to put our 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes through their paces. The instructors were fantastic and got us all working up a sweat! Some of the exercises included bear crawls, burpees and frog squats to name but a few. We enjoyed all the activities and Tom was very engaging throughout. Our fitness levels were certainly tested but the exercises learned will come in useful going forward and shall be used regularly to keep our hearts healthy! Thanks so much to Fyffes Fit Squad for coming out to our school. Come back anytime!”

“The Fyffes Fit Squad visited our school in Monageer. Tom, the personal trainer was brilliant at showing us the zoo moves and showed the children that you can exercise anywhere without the need for equipment. He delivered two sessions, one with our 1st & 2nd Class and the other with 3rd Class. He tailored the session to suit the age groups he was working with and was very motivating. The children had lots of fun while exercising. The children also enjoyed their free Fyffes bananas and the blow-up banana. Thanks to Fyffes Fitness team”

“Many thanks to Fyffes, as we were delighted to have coaches from their Fit Squad visit our school last week. They entertained and educated children from 1st to 4th Class in body movement exercises and simple nutrition tips. Animal movements/walks were demonstrated, and children all tried them out. The children were amazed that the exercises and animal walks were in fact a lot harder than they looked. All children enjoyed the sessions and were rewarded for their participation with delicious Fyffes bananas and recipe cards. Which, I’m sure, will be used and enjoyed in homes throughout the parish over the coming months. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to any school.”

“The Fyffes Fit Squad came out to visit our school on Friday 3rd May! Prior to this, our school had been trying to promote a healthier lifestyle to the children – introducing ‘k a day’ and encouraging healthy eating. So, a visit from Fyffes was ideal to reinforce our initiative. The children loved the fun session they had in the hall which included fun activities to some cool music! The teachers were really impressed with how well the children were put through their paces! The merchandise and bananas were a nice addition to the end of the session and was a talking point for children with their parents when they went home! Many thanks for coming out guys! It’s a great program which is an asset to any school promoting a healthier lifestyle to its children!”

“Just a short few words to say thanks so much for the Fyffes Fit Squad session in Scoil Chaitriona Junior, Renmore, Galway. The pupils and teachers really enjoyed it. Tom the instructor had great communication skills and the session was well delivered and the content was age appropriate. The bananas and pens were a nice bonus! I will be recommending Fyffes Fit Squad to other schools. It was well organised, and it was easy to contact you with any questions.”
