Hello everyone! Just a little update. It’s NOT OVER, but this is the last full week of PE with Joe. I’ve loved every minute of it. All 13 weeks of it������ It’s been so much fun and I’ve laughed so much. I’ve been on a mission to engage children in fitness for 4 years now and have travelled all over the U.K. visiting schools. I feel very proud that I’ve been able to bring so many people together during lockdown. We have had almost 70 million views worldwide on the workouts now which is truly mind blowing ������ As of next week I’ll be running a reduced time table of 3 days per week. I’m going to be doing LIVE workouts Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 9am for everyone. Thank you for your support on #pewithjoe and for all your messages of thanks and gratitude. It’s been an incredible journey! Let’s keep going! Lots of love Joe ❤️
