2,000,000 people did the first Joe Wicks PE class – join in and share your pics

There are a number of unexpected heroes emerging from the corona outbreak – and one of them comes in the form of a very famous fitness guru.

Coming as a saviour to parents everywhere who have suddenly become homeschoolers and fast becoming a national treasure, Joe Wicks, aka The Body Coach, pledged to hold a 9am PE class live on his YouTube channel every weekday morning until schools reopen.

True to form, he started his classes – named PE With Joe – this Monday morning, with 806,000 people tuning in to join the first session live, on his channel TheBodyCoachTV, and over 2.3million watching the workout over the course of the first day.

Hundreds of cute photos and videos of kids then emerged (not least those of Coleen and Wayne Rooney’s brood doing the workout) that have given us as much of an uplift as if we’d actually done the workout ourselves (maybe tomorrow, ok Joe?) – so in order to share that joy, here’s a selection of uplifting pics and video of all you lovely lot enjoying the Wicks workout.



It wasn’t only kids enjoying Joe’s workouts. Lesley, 65, from Kent had an enthusiastic response: ‘Brilliant,’ she said. ‘I’m gonna do it every day.’

Lesley, we will see you at 9am.
