Joe Wicks to restart ‘PE with Joe’ classes as nation plunged into third lockdown
Joe Wicks MBE is to resume his PE with Joe YouTube classes as the UK is expected to face a further six weeks in a complete national lockdown, in a bid to tackle the rising cases of coronavirus.
It was announced late last year that a second, much stronger variant of the virus is currently sweeping across Great Britain, with a surge in the number of hospital admissions.
The fitness star, 34, is hoping to entertain as well as inspire the younger generation who are being forced into remote learning after Boris Johnson announced all schools in England were to close with immediate effect.
Joe, took to his Instagram account as he shared the exciting news following the roaring success of the first series when the nation first faced lockdown in March 2020.
The dad-of-two addressed his 3.9 million followers, saying: "I've got some great news, I've decided I need to come back and be there for children during this time, through this lockdown when schools are closed to keep their exercise up, to keep their activities there, their energy, their mood, their mental health."
He went on to say: "I'm going to be doing PE with Joe live, three days a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday starting next week on the 11th."
In a bid to boost the morale across all four corners of the nation, Joe continued: "Children at home, they're not being as active.
"Their mental health is going to suffer and we need to be getting our kids moving."
The episodes which launch from Monday will feature 20-minute workouts, three times per week in a bid to allow children to continue their physical education.
Joe's announcement comes after he raised over £2million following his 24-hour physical education challenge.
Currently, the government state that it is compulsory for all children between the ages of five and 15 to be provided with at least two hours of PE per week as part of the national curriculum.
