SO WHAT DO WE DO?

We organise and deliver fitness circuit classes in the local community here in Fermanagh as well as Monaghan and Cavan. We also support schools in delivery of sports specific coaching during school time or as after school activities.

We run regular free taster sessions in the community for all age groups with each circuit class tailored to abilities. Visit our Facebook Page for more information.


ABOUT ACTIVE for HEALTH

Active for Health is a new Community Interest Company (CIC) formed in 2016. The social enterprise aims to bring fitness programmes to members of the community who would otherwise be reluctant to visit mainstream gyms for a variety of reasons, and to local Schools to raise overall fitness levels and sports participation.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

Last term we received some positive feedback from Parents and Teachers on our school soccer programme and our fitness classes held in the community.

"All children enjoyed the lessons and found the soccer drills both challenging and fun. Good learning experience for the children"
"The Coaches had a lovely manner with the children who responded very well under their instruction"
"My son loved the skill games and has been practicing with his football since, he had a great day"
