In addition, a new modern fitness suite that will give the students a solid foundation in what can be achieved within a gym environment and the benefits associated with type of training.
As a central part of learning at Gaelcholáiste Charraig Uí Leighin , we place a great emphasis on both physical health and well-being and required the best equipment available. Podium 4 Sport were selected as the preferred supplier to supply and install our sports hall and gym equipment including, basketball goals, divider curtain, cardio and strength equipment. Their attention to detail and knowledge during the ordering and installation process is second to none and with their help, we hope our facility encourages our students to reach their full potential.
