Alumnus of St Mary’s University, Twickenham, Joe Wicks MBE is attempting a new world record to raise funds for the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM on 29th June.
Joe, who is best known for his mission to help get people active through his energetic High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts and quick recipes, is hoping to break his own Guinness World Record for the world's largest ever HIIT workout. He set the previous record in 2017 when 3804 people joined him for a HIIT workout in Hyde Park.
Joe also holds another World Record, which he achieved with his PE with Joe videos during the first Covid-19 lockdown. He set the World Record for most live streams, with one of his videos seeing almost a million people watching live on YouTube. Through PE with Joe, he managed to raise over £580k for NHS charities and was awarded an MBE for services to fitness and charity for his efforts.
He plans to get around 6,000 people working out together on Wednesday 29th June at 6:30pm as part of the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, in the heart of London to set the new record.
