Currently airing on Irish pubcaster RTÉ One as Ireland’s Fittest Family, the primetime series is fast becoming appointment viewing for families throughout Ireland as the series delivers big numbers in its 7.30pm Saturday slot.
The six-part series sees twelve uber fit and sports mad family’s compete for the title of the nation’s fittest family and a big cash prize.

Each episode sees four sporting legends assigned to coach the families and push them to their fitness max. The families compete against each other as they get put through a set of extreme challenges with only the fittest surviving.
“When we first saw Fittest Family we knew we had to have it”, said FremantleMedia’s Director of Global Entertainment Development, Rob Clark. “The blend of family dynamics and intense competition come together to make this simple concept a brilliant piece of entertainment. It has real fun and a great heart at its core. We’re confident that Fittest Family can become a global hit.”
