The Benefits of Exercising Outdoors
Why health, fitness and happiness is waiting just outside your front door.
PE With Joe began on Monday 23rd March 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the UK lockdown. When it was announced that all schools would be closed and with the prospect of us all spending more time at home, it was more important than ever that we kept moving and stayed healthy and positive.
So I decided to host a free workout aimed at kids and families live on my YouTube channel, everyday Monday - Friday while the schools were closed.
I had no idea it was going to be such a big success. On the first day of PE With Joe, more than 900,000 families tuned in around the world. On the second day, over 955,000 families took part together and we broke the world record for the largest streamed workout on YouTube.
Since then, we've done more than 70 workouts together and had over 70 million views, with all the money generated from YouTube ads being donated to NHS Charities Together. Combined with sales of PE With Joe t-shirts, together we helped raise more than £500,000 for the charity.
Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic. The workouts are fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. You don't need any equipment at all. Head to my YouTube channel here for all of the PE With Joe workouts.
PE With Joe has been the proudest thing I've ever been a part of. Thank you to everyone that has taken part and for being with me on this journey.
Lots of love, Joe x
