Joe Wicks has an eager and empowering approach to fitness and nutrition:

A workout with no shouting? ✔
No starvation? ✔
Smiles and encouragement? ✔
Short doable workouts? ✔

It’s no wonder he has developed a loyal fanbase; he boasts an impressive social media following and a bevy of celebrities among his satisfied clientele. Now, Wicks’ new TV show is just what we need to maintain our health and fitness while in self-isolation. 

Author of Lean in 15, the UK’s second best-selling cookbook of all time, Wicks has a background in physiology and anatomy. Prompted by clients who trained hard but neglected nutritional advice, Wicks set up his Body Coach business to prove what could be achieved when the two were combined. He developed his trademark ‘90-day Shift, Shape & Sustain’ program and focuses on building body confidence and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Joe Wicks: The Body Coach starts 16 May on SBS and On Demand. While you wait, get acquainted with Joe's work via his P.E. Lessons Youtube videos, a daily workout initiative aimed at keeping school-age kids active during lockdown, which has also raised over $100,000 for the UK's NHS.


Dress comfortably and join Joe Wicks: The Body Coach on Saturdays at 3pm from 16 May on SBS.
