Why doing your daily PE with Joe sessions is good news for the NHS
Body Coach Joe Wicks has been brightening up sitting room across the world with his live 9am morning PE with Joe family workouts on YouTube. And here's the most brilliant reason yet to join in...
The Body Coach Joe Wicks, dad to daughter Indie, has announced he will donate "every single penny" of the money made by ads shown in his daily PE with Joe YouTube sessions to the NHS.
This means that, as well as helping to keep families fit and healthy during lockdown with a regular morning workout, Joe will be providing what we can only imagine to be A LOT of money to boost the coffers of our brilliant health service.
Joe revealed in an Instagram post last week that his daily 9am PE with Joe sessions have increased his revenue "unlike anything I’ve seen or experienced on my channel before".
He went on to say:
I've decided that as long as I’m the nations PE teacher, every single penny of the money generated on these videos is going to the place where we need it the most right now. All of it is going straight to the NHS, to support the real heroes right now.
