The first class was held on Monday 23rd March, as announced in this video by Wicks which was posted to his channel last week:
Wicks has become a big name in fitness and healthy eating in recent years, with his Lean in 15 cookery books becoming national bestsellers.
“Don’t worry, I’ve got you. I’m going to take this over. I’m going to get your kids moving, getting energised, positive, optimistic,” he said.
Those wishing to take part simply need to head over to Joe Wicks official YouTube channel, The Body Coach TV, before the class starts at 9am.
Lots of other media personalities are offering free online classes and interactive experiences to help parents and children be entertained and learn while in lockdown – here’s a selection of our favourites from science and maths, to music and history in our TV school timetable.
Wicks joins the likes of Netflix and Universal, who have also taken measures to aid those self-isolating to avoid the spread of the pandemic. The streaming service cut streaming quality to free up bandwith, while Universal has released some of its films on VOD early.
