Children in Longford are invited to get fit with Enda Gillen of Longford Fitness this summer as he launched his summer camps.

Enda is passionate about getting our younger generation exercising from a young age but in a manner that is fun for them. The overall hope is that when these kids reach their teen/adult years they will have developed a healthy approach to exercise as well as having developed key functional movements that won’t only help in their exercise but in everyday lives, helping them maintain a healthier functioning body and make it easier when/if they join a gym in the future.

“This is what we believe in with our Little Fitness, Junior Athletic Development. We don’t just concentrate on one sport, it’s all about games/activities to develop skills for any type of movement/game/sport.

“The benefits of these types of games, skills or movements cannot be underestimated for a childs development,” Enda said.
