How did Joe Wicks get started?
After graduating with a degree in sports science, Joe Wicks worked as a teaching assistant before realising his true calling was to help people achieve healthy bodies and minds. He began working as a personal trainer, and in 2014 he began posting videos of his workouts and nutrition advice on Instagram, and has amassed a following of almost four million. His first book, Lean in 15 – The Shift Plan, was published in 2015 and became one of the bestselling diet books of all time, and since then he has published a further seven books, all of which have been bestsellers.
Here, Joe introduces himself:
‘I'm Joe Wicks, aka The Body Coach, and I've dedicated the past 10 years of my life to helping people get fitter, stronger and healthier. I started as a young and ambitious personal trainer, working with clients one-to-one and running my own outdoor boot camps. I then took all my passion and energy for motivating and inspiring people, and put it into my books, social media and, most recently, my new The Body Coach fitness app. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I've helped someone on their journey to become healthier and happier. It's the driving force behind everything I do – and really, I believe it to be my purpose in life.’
