PE With Joe Wicks The Body Coach

this event has no time specified
Subjects: Physical Education

What to expect

Dubbed 'the nation's PE teacher', personal trainer Joe Wicks runs daily 30-minute workout sessions for kids at 9am every day during term time. He has pledged to donate all money raised to the NHS - another reason to subscribe and follow his classes at home!

Every session starts off with a warm-up routine before going into exercises tailored to kids, such as 'Spiderman lunges'. Joe also throws in a few trivia questions to keep everyone's minds active! If you're not quite ready at 9am, he records each session and posts it to his YouTube channel so you can watch it at any time. If you want a slightly more intense family workout for older kids, why not try the Boostys Corona Buster sessions or attempt a HIIT workout instead?

What you'll need

  • A good WiFi connection
  • Join the class a couple of minutes early to make sure you start on time
  • Make sure everyone following the class is wearing comfy clothes and trainers
  • Ensure there is enough space for everyone to jump around
  • Have a bottle of water handy

What you'll do

  • The session is split into two 12-minute sessions with a short break in between.
  • Joe demonstrates each exercise and shows you how to simplify it or make it harder according to your level.
  • There's a warm up session at the start and a warm down at the end.




At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.

Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
