The nation’s favourite advocate for exercise, Joe Wicks, is back with “PE With Joe” in 2021 to keep everyone active during the third lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. With schools shut for most children, many parents find themselves yet again having to homeschool their children and facing the challenge of making sure they’re exercising. Luckily, Joe is going to be on hand to “keep [kids’] activities there, [to help] their energy, their mood, their mental health,” he said in an Instagram post announcing the news.
Joe is hosting free PE lessons to help keep kids active and burn off some of that energy and give parents 20 minutes of peace in the morning. The sessions will take place three days a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. PE lesson begin on 11 Jan., start at 9 a.m. GMT, and are free. All videos are streamed live on Joe’s YouTube account, The Body Coach TV.
Joe first began “PE With Joe” back in March at the very start of the pandemic and first national lockdown, when he hosted workouts every weekday morning for 13 weeks, bringing in 80 million views and raising £580,000 for NHS Charities Together. He also raised over £2 million for BBC Children In Need by completing a 24-hour PE class, live on TV.
We’re sure parents are thrilled with the news that PE With Joe has returned. We’ll be adding links to all of Joe’s lockdown 3.0 workouts as they go live, ahead.
