The Body Coach became ‘the nation’s PE teacher’ with his live-streamed workouts during the Covid-19 lockdown.
After studying sports science Joe briefly worked as a teaching assistant before pursuing his passion as a personal trainer. His online career took off after he started posting videos on Instagram and YouTube with fitness, diet and health advice. His Body Coach website grew as he published a succession of hugely popular books (including his Lean in 15 series), fitness and nutrition plans, and even putting his name to a range of cookware.
After appearances on TV shows from Good Morning Britain to Celebrity Juice, he hosted his own Channel 4 series, Joe Wicks: The Body Coach. But his profile rose even more during the Covid-19 outbreak. His PE with Joe live streams broke records and saw him get hundreds of thousands of people, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, moving whilst living under lockdown restrictions.
