“It’s a workout specifically designed for kids because when the schools are closed there is no PE. We’re going to be doing loads of basic exercises, you don’t need a lot of room. This is happening, I am going to be the nation’s PE teacher.”
He added that the sessions are meant to help children feel more energized and positive, and are intended for everyone from small children to secondary school students.
This isn’t the first time Wicks has created workouts designed for children. On his YouTube channel, you can find an entire playlist dedicated to kids’ workouts called “Kids Workouts to do at Home.”
This playlist includes a number of ‘5 Minute Move’ videos, which are a perfect way to keep our children active and motivated during this uncertain time.
