As one of the biggest names in the UK right now, it's little surprise he's had such a successful career previously, and let's be honest, he's become an absolute favourite of the mums, some of which kick back on the sofa and just watch him do his workouts!
My mum and her mate are on FaceTime to each other saying how great Joe Wicks’ workouts are. They watch every day and DON’T DO THEM but think the whole thing is so uplifting that it’s the tv focus of their day I cba— jack rem x (@jackremmington) April 1, 2020
