With social distancing and the closure of schools, many parents are really worried about keeping their children physically active.
Not everyone has a garden, and even then, we can feel limited as to what we can do for fun exercise with kids within that space. Health & fitness guru Joe Wicks (AKA The Body Coach) has saved the day with this fabulous idea – it will inspire you with new ideas, and workouts that you can also do indoors if you’re limited for garden space or don’t have one at all!
Joe has announced that each weekday, he will be holding a 30 minute fitness class for kids via his Youtube channel. You can use the Youtube app on a smart TV to take part, or position a device somewhere stable that your kids can stand in front of to watch and take part.
Announcing the news on his Instagram account, Joe has said:
‘Starting from Monday, every single day from Monday to Friday, I’m going to do a live workout called “PE with Joe” on my YouTube channel The Body Coach TV. It’s a workout specifically designed for kids. Because when the schools closed, there is no PE. Don’t worry, I’ve got you. I’m going to take this over. I’m going get your kids moving, fit and energised, positive and optimistic.’

I produce so much free fitness content online and I never ask for anything in return but today I need your help 🙏🏼 I need your support to help spread this online so as many parents as possible know that this is an option for them to use next week. I am holding LIVE PE lessons at 9am Monday to Friday on my YouTube channel for children of all ages. All I need is for you to screen shot this and post it on your wall, story, Twitter, facebook, whatsapp, linked in and anywhere else. Parents are going to be under pressure next week and for 30 minutes a day I can take over and inspire and energise the kids to get active, bounce around and have fun. You can even join in with the kids. Please share away. This is going to help millions of children and parents feel happier for 30 minutes and beyond everyday ☺️❤️ #PEwithJoe
