Fitness visits at Wexford schools

By Ashley Hall

Another sign that life is returning to normal following a two-year break forced by the Covid-19 pandemic is seen in the announcement by Fyffes that it is to resume its programme of fitness visits to Wexford schools commencing in September.

Since its launch just four years ago over 720 Wexford pupils had been introduced to the Fit Squad programme before Covid and resulting school closures forced Fyffes to bring its message online. 

Delivered by Irish health and fitness expert Tom Dalton, each visit of 45-minutes duration 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.

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 interested in participating are invited to register at
