    If your usual motivation to get a sweat on is dwindling, don’t worry – we’ve got a solution for you. Enter stage right, Joe Wicks YouTube workouts: super simple home workouts consisting of effective, high intensity exercises that cost little time, no money, and don’t even require you leaving your living room.

    If the seemingly endless UK lockdowns taught us anything it’s that getting in a daily sweat session is a great way to take care of our mental health, as well as preventing your daily step count from being all of two digits long.

    And when it comes to fitness, we definitely trust the man who’s sold the most fitness books in the UK since records began, transformed millions of people’s lives through his free workout and nutrition content, and also holds a Guinness world record for the most viewers on a YouTube workout live stream.

    Yeah, it’s been quite the career journey for Wicks: he kicked off PE with Joe at the beginning of lockdown in 2020, hosting a workout every morning for kids missing out on PE at school. Donating all of the advertising revenue from the streaming, the star raised near £100,000 for the NHS. Not bad.

    But back to the Joe Wicks YouTube workouts — the reason you’re on this page. The personal trainer’s online sessions are universally loved, and we can see why. Unlike some more convoluted celebrity workouts, they’re short, simple, and effective, with most less than half an hour and requiring just yourself (and one of the best sports bras).

    What kind of workouts are they, you ask? Well, Joe’s focus has always been on high-intensity interval training, or HIIT. High intensity, as you work at 80% of your RPE (rate of perceived exertion), and intervals, as you do this in short, quick bursts. Forget hours in the gym: if you’re willing to work hard, he reckons you can get just as good results.

    And he’s not wrong. You only need to take a quick scroll of his Instagram page (@thebodycoach) to see the hundreds of transformation photos. Sure, HIIT training may not boast the long term health benefits of running, hiking or cold water therapy, but it sure as heck seems to work for fat loss.

    So we’ve rounded up 30 of the best Joe Wicks YouTube workouts for all abilities. Whether you’re after something short and sweet, need it low impact because of an injury, or are after a longer session, we’ve got just the workout.

    Not your thing? Try one of these celebrity workouts, instead – because who wouldn’t want to work out like J Lo, Jen An or Lizzo?
