One of the biggest challenges facing all parents during the Coronavirus outbreak will be how to keep their children entertained while they are off school. With no date set for a return to classrooms, teachers are preparing remote learning and online lessons to cover academic work from home, but this just isn’t possible for PE and sport.
We all know that no exercise is not a good thing for any child and can lead to boredom, frustration and bad behaviour, not to mention the negative effect on their physical and mental health and well being. Almost all kids need to be active in some way every day.
But never fear as fitness national treasure Joe Wicks, aka The Body Coach, is here to help out. As of next week he will be holding free live PE lessons at 9am Monday to Friday on his YouTube channel for children of all ages.
Social media sensation Joe has a loyal following of over 3 million on Instagram alone and is responsible for changing the lives of thousands of people for the better with his amazing exercise and nutrition plans.
Now the dad-0f-two plans to help children all over the UK stay active and healthy while off school during the Coronavirus outbreak. No equipment is needed for the kid-friendly workouts and if you can’t join in live then you’ll find them online to watch at a time that suits. Plus there are already loads of workouts on his YouTube site already. All can be done in your living room so even if the weather is rubbish you can still get moving.
“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,” says the fitness guru.
During this crazy, difficult time when so many parents are juggling the demands of working from home and looking after their kids, a fun half our session with Joe that enables youngsters to use up some energy is something all mums and dads will be incredibly grateful for.
Joe you are an absolute star and we will certainly be joining you with our kiddos!
