Over 70,000 young people and parents answered the call of Irish world boxing champion Kellie Harrington and track and field Olympian, David Gillick by tuning in to their 12-week online Fyffes Fit Squad programme, aimed at encouraging children and families to adopt a more healthy and active lifestyle. Launched in March, and created so that teachers and parents could also participate, the series of interactive videos saw Kellie and David demonstrate new workout routines whilst giving advice on overall wellbeing and healthy-eating.
Last year, Fit Squad went online when schools were forced to close. With hundreds now awaiting visits, Fyffes says it is looking forward to resuming live sessions in schools ‘once it is deemed safe to do so’. Mums, dads and little ones looking to keep active over Summer can still follow the fitness videos at www.fyffesfitsquad.ie
