About Joe Wicks

The 33-year-old online fitness and diet guru was born in Epsom, Surrey. His father was a roofer and his mother was a social worker. He studied sports science at St. Mary University, Twickenham. Which led him to host his own TV show, focused on people moving and encouraging healthy eating. 

Joe decided to pursue a career as a nutrition coach and instead of working at a gym he began running boot camps in a local park.  Eventually, he launched his own company in Richmond, South-West London. 

In 2014, Joe joined Instagram and started uploading his motivational clips about nutrition and fitness. He leveraged on the power of social media to give his fitness coaching career a boost.
