The latest PE with Joe live workout
You can also watch all previous episodes of 'P.E. with Joe' on Youtube for free.
PE with Joe already made a comeback in late 2020 but those episodes were not live and didn't become as popular as the original live workouts were. Now that schools are closed again and kids can spend less time playing outside, we are sure most parents will appreciate the return of live PE with Joe workouts.

Hopefully, we'll see even more 'Fancy dress Friday with Joe' going forward and a it is a good indication that just recently, Joe had a live 'Halloween Special' workout session that involved the whole Wicks household: cuteness overload!

Get the Joe Wicks home look
Fender Stratocaster | Prices from £779 at Fender
Joe might be playing 'spot the difference' with his subtly changing home backdrop, but this Fender Stratocaster guitar is on the wall in most of his videos. This iconic instrument was designed in the 50's and has been used ever since by musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton. There are plenty of different varieties available, prices from £779 at Fender.View Deal
Vivobarefoot Primus Lite II shoes | Buy it for £110 directly from Vivobarefoot
Some of you might have noticed that Joe is using special shoes in his 'P.E. with Joe' videos: they are the excellent Vivobarefoot Primus Lite shoes that sport a signature 3mm 'barefoot' sole for maximum sensory feedback and minimum interference. The upper is made of recycled PET plastic bottles woven into a durable yarn to create a vegan and – most importantly – breathable movement shoe.View Deal
B&O Beosound 2 with The Google Assistant | Buy it for £1,650 from Bang & Olufsen
Another item you might have noticed in Joe's videos is this pretty smart speaker from B&O. Not necessarily an impulse buy but by applying B&O's Acoustic Lens Technology into the conical speaker body, the Beosound 2 creates a 360-degree sound experience that fills the entire room from anywhere you place the speaker. And it looks like a very sexy ornament from the future.View Deal
Top 5 episodes of PE with Joe
There have been a LOT of great episodes of PE with Joe over the last couple of months. We could've just included all the Fancy Dress Friday or PE with Rosie episodes, they were all great on their own terms. Here are our top 5 picks of best EVER PE with Joe episodes.
#5 – Friday 17th March (Scooby Doo, where are you?)
We loved Joe's choice of fancy dress in this episode and so did the rest of the audience: the video has over 1.2 million views so far.
#4 – Saturday 9th May (family workout)
We all love a good garden workout nowadays, especially in this weather. This weekend episode was a one off and honestly, we hoped Joe would give himself a bit of break over the weekend, especially after his hand surgery. Glad he did this episode, though.
#3 – Friday 4th April (enter Spiderman)
Probably the best fancy dress episode to date and we love how the thumbnail is just a 'shopped image of Joe's head over Tom Hollands' body. the actual costume was more of a cheap variety, making the video all the more hilarious.
#2 – Monday 23rd March (the first episode)
Still the most watched episode of PE with Joe episode ever: with the first live workout, the Body Coach was in the right place at the right time. This video alone has been watched over 6.8 million times so far.
#1 – Monday 4th May (PE with Rosie)
Dubbed the "hottest substitute teacher ever", Rosie helped Joe out for a few days after his hand surgery and fans went bonkers over how physically fit Rosie was. Her presence also rejuvenated the series and gave it a boost it needed.
