Created in 2018, Fyffes Fit Squad is a multi-award-winning programme that gets kids active through easy-to-learn and fun-to-do exercises.
Before Covid-19, over 20,000 children across the island of Ireland took part in our face-to-face school's programme, and now we are bringing the Fit Squads back to schools from this September delivered by Irish health and fitness expert, Sharon Flanagan and carried out under the eye of teachers present. Each 45-minute session includes an active workout plus talks and tips on healthy eating, all designed to improve children’s general fitness through engaging and fun-filled activities.
After the first edition of Ireland’s Fittest School where Scoil Na Croise Naofa, Dunfanaghy, Co. Donegal was crowned the inaugural winner following a very tight finish, Fyffes are on the hunt again to find ‘Ireland’s Fittest School’ and want your school to get involved. With our Fit Squad coaches Phil Healy and David Gillick providing new and improved exercises along with nutritional tips and mindfulness techniques, it is up to your school to start earning some banana points by completing these weekly exercises and availing of the useful nutritional and mindfulness elements. The winner will be rewarded with €5,000 worth of sports equipment along with a special Fit Squad visit from our coaches Phil and David. In addition to this, there will be plenty of prizes to be won along the way too! The campaign begins September 26th and will run until March 31st, 2023, when Fyffes will crown ‘Ireland's Fittest School’. We are inclusive and care about getting everyone actively involved, regardless of how fit you are.
This is fun. This is fitness. This is Fyffes Fit Squad!Sign up
