In a blog post about his workout videos, Wicks emphasizes that his workouts are intended for kids and their adult caregivers, adding that there's no equipment needed for the workouts: Only a device that has access to YouTube.

"I'm going to be doing everything I can, I'm adapting them". Don't worry, I got you.

Live from his home in London, Wicks live-streams child-friendly workouts every weekday morning at 9 a.m. GMT.

Last week saw the fitness guru announce he would be the "nation's PE teacher" in the wake of the news that in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus, schools would only be open to the children of key workers. The workouts, which are then uploaded onto his Youtube channel, have garnered millions of views from families in the USA and United Kingdom, all the way to New Zealand and Australia. Schools are even sharing the link to his videos with their students.

Wicks is one of a number of professionals offering online workouts and sessions to help parents home schooling their children during coronavirus self-isolation.

When are Joe Wicks' live P.E lessons?

"(It's) great for endorphins (and) they have been a massive success. It's about helping. It's about getting kids moving and feeling good and keeping your mental health up.

Wicks was not the only coach offering to help keep the United Kingdom fit. He has more than 3 million Instagram followers and more than 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube.

The 33-year-old is said to be on the verge of signing a deal with Channel 4 to host a live training show, with the BBC also looking to join Wicks.

Speaking to MailOnline recently, Joe said, "I disturbed Channel 4 for two years to do a show and they kept saying", We can't do it, Joe.

But Wicks told Heart that he's already "reaching a global audience digitally where I am now".

He added: "I want to thank everyone who's shared it, I'm doing what I love now and doing it from my living room".
