Joe Wicks stretches his legs with his family during their daily outdoor exercise period.
The PE physical education teacher, 33, and model wife Rosie Jones, 29, pushed their 20-month-old daughter Indie and her four-month-old son Marley out of Richmond Park in south-west London.
Body Coach star Joe is projecting daily training videos. He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show yesterday that he reached 15 million viewers last week, adding: “It was fantastic.”
He also revealed that he had been contacted by a 94-year-old fan of his special seniors’ trainings, which have amassed 500,000 spectators.
Joe, who injured his wrist after falling off his bicycle last week, said he will donate “every single cent” of profit he makes from his videos to the National Health Service.
Joe Wicks’ YouTube account has grown by a million subscribers thanks to his free PE blocking lessons.
The Body Coach began publishing daily physical education lessons for children – and parents – in an attempt to keep the nation active during the UK blockade that was imposed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
And it seems that the decision has given a big boost to his career.
At the end of February, Joe’s YouTube channel had 823,000 subscribers, reports The Sun.
Now that number has grown to a whopping 1.82 million.
He also added more than 200,000 new followers to his Instagram page in a few days.
Joe said earlier this week that his physical education lessons were viewed six million times in a matter of days.
Speaking about Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, he said: “I feel this will have the greatest impact [I ever make].
“It is a truly unique moment in the world in which everyone is present together.”
Dad, two years old, Joe was due to go on a UK tour this week.
But when it was canceled, he decided to go out practically across the nation.
His daily training videos were viewed six million times in just two days.
And he hopes that parents also join the training.
He said: “I am encouraging parents.
“I’ve been doing this for three or four years, doing these tours.
“I want to see the kids train with their moms and dads and I think it happened this week.
“I’m blown away and I want to thank everyone who shared it.”
Joe was also asked about his best dietary advice for people while they are stuck at home.
He said that while boredom will see people heading to the lockers or refrigerator for snacks more often, people shouldn’t let themselves be emotionally eaten and should try eating healthy meals and doing some daily exercise.
- Joe’s lessons continue on his YouTube channel today at 9am.
