No school? No problem: Body Coach's Joe Wicks is now holding daily live PE lessons for kids

I know we are still allowed to go for walks and hikes (thank God) – but that doesn't mean we aren't spending far more time indoors these days than normal.

Being Norwegian, I am obsessed with fresh air and free play when it comes to keeping my children healthy, and these days, I am far less concerned about the lack of formal education that is taking place than I am about my children (and myself) not being as active or spending as much time outdoors as we normally would.

We have managed a few hikes (while still practising social distancing, of course) this past week, but I must admit, I was super excited when I came across The Body Coach Joe Wicks' Instagram post a couple of days ago, where he announced he is now set to become all our kids' PE teacher for the foreseeable future.

Realising all the schools are now closed or closing, Wicks gathered that parents everywhere will be literally trying to keep our kids from climbing the walls at home.

And so the well-known health- and fitness coach took to social media to announce he will be holding live daily PE lessons for kids to help keep children fit and healthy while they are not at school during the coronavirus pandemic.

I produce so much free fitness content online and I never ask for anything in return but today I need your help ?? I need your support to help spread this online so as many parents as possible know that this is an option for them to use next week. I am holding LIVE PE lessons at 9am Monday to Friday on my YouTube channel for children of all ages. All I need is for you to screen shot this and post it on your wall, story, Twitter, facebook, whatsapp, linked in and anywhere else. Parents are going to be under pressure next week and for 30 minutes a day I can take over and inspire and energise the kids to get active, bounce around and have fun. You can even join in with the kids. Please share away. This is going to help millions of children and parents feel happier for 30 minutes and beyond everyday ☺️❤️ #PEwithJoe

The 30-minute workout sessions are aimed at "little kids right up to secondary school" and Wicks says the sessions will take approximately 30 minutes.

Announcing the workouts which will start on Monday at 9 am and will be held every weekday, Joe said: "I'm going to do a live workout called 'PE With Joe' on my YouTube channel The Body CoachTV.

"It's a workout designed specifically for kids because when the school are closed there is no PE. Don't worry, I've got you. I'm going to take this over," Wicks explains.

"I'm going to get your kids moving, feeling energised, positive, optimistic. So tune in Monday morning at 9 am and every day. It's a 30-minute session for little kids right up to secondary school. Get involved, have fun. We're going to be doing loads of basic exercise. You don't need a lot of room. I'm going to take care of it. This is happening. I am going to be the nation's PE teacher."

Thank you, Joe! We are all set!
