Joe Wicks Becomes The Nation’s P.E. Teacher With Free Daily Kids Workouts On YouTube

This is great news for parents and kids who are reeling from the news of school closures due to the Coronavirus. Joe Wicks, famous as The Body Coach, has said he will become ‘the nation’s P.E. teacher’ by giving daily online P.E. classes for kids!

Joe is holding kids’ workout classes on his You Tube channel, and he will be doing them every weekday at 9am during the school closures.

To make it even more fun Joe has made Friday’s workouts into Fancy Dress Friday! Joe announced the new twist on the daily PE sessions on his Facebook page, along with a photo of himself dressed up as Spider-Man. He said:

“Fancy getting dressed up for the workout on Friday? I’ll be dressed up in something fun. Get involved. Be a right laugh won’t it? Share your photos and videos with the hashtag #FancyDressPEwithJoe

So far we’ve seen him dressed up as Spider-Man, Scooby Doo*, and a rather big googly-eyed frog! Make sure you join in with bargain fancy dress costumes* and the best ones he will feature on his social media. And I can’t express how much fun it is to watch a mini Mario* doing a workout in your living room!

The workouts are designed to be kid friendly, last half an hour, and don’t need much space so they can be done indoors if you’re self-isolating.

We think this is an amazing idea, and it should help keep the kids active as well as bringing some structure and routine to the day while we’re all ‘home schooling’.
