The Schools Fitness Challenge aims to help secondary schools adopt a healthier lifestyle. There are three phases to the Schools' Fitness Challenge:
  1. The initial fitness test to measure current fitness levels.

  2. A six week training programme to improve cardiovascular fitness.

  3. A repeat test to measure new fitness levels.


Irish Life Health is committed to supporting the continued roll out of the Schools Fitness Challenge to schools and classes throughout Ireland this year, working in close partnership with Dublin City University.
