Joe Wicks brings back his free 9am workouts during new national lockdown

Fitness guru Joe Wicks is bringing back his free YouTube PE sessions for the latest lockdown.

His PE With Joe courses will be streamed again starting Monday, January 11th.

In contrast to the first closure, they are not every day, but on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The 34-year-old fitness star started the initiative when Britain plunged into its first Curfew in March 2020 and they proved to be an instant hit with families. His online workouts raised £ 580,000 for the NHS.

Joe, who received an MBE on the Queen’s Birthday Honors list last year, announced it on Twitter after Boris Johnson announced the third ban.

He said the new sessions would take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. and last 20 minutes.

“I’m sorry I can’t commit to every five days, but I hope three days will help young children and families get through this difficult period,” he wrote.

He said his goal was to “bring some energy” and “lift the spirits” of parents and children while schools were closed.

“I’m really looking forward to them, they will be 20 minutes long, so beautiful and short, but focused on exercises for young children, so suitable for all ages,” he said.

“They will be similar to the initial lockdown, but much shorter.”

The father of two became a viral sensation during the initial lockdown, when millions of families signed up for his training session every day at 9 a.m.

He also managed to set a new Guinness world record when nearly a million people tuned in to attend a meeting.
