THEY weren’t expecting it, so when Dael Fry made a surprise appearance at a FIT BORO session there was an extra zip in the stride of the participants.
The award-winning 12-week free fitness programme is just two weeks into the current delivery and far from being a casual observer, Dael, despite being clearly disappointed after the weekend game at Sunderland when he was red-carded, insisted he joined in for one of the tougher disciplines.
Dael said: “It’s great to come down and see what’s going on. I thought I might get a bit of stick after Sunday, but they were brilliant. They’re all Boro fans and they were really good.
“Fit Boro is a great initiative by the Foundation in encouraging people to live healthy lifestyle. Exercising and eating right not only helps your fitness, but it’s also good for your mental well-being.”
The session was filmed by ITV and featured in the EFL’s highlights programme on the day Boro moved to third in the table with a win over Watford.
