Joe Wicks to release fitness DVD

Joe Wicks is set to release a new fitness DVD this year.

The 30-year-old health guru - who is known as The Body Coach - will drop his debut video 'Joe Wicks: Lean in 15' on December 26 following the success of his book of the same name, which sat at Number 1 in the charts for 10 weeks last year, making it the biggest selling cookery book of the past 10 years.

He said: "For the last few years I've been making 15 second videos on Instagram, I've been doing Facebook Lives, filming HIIT sessions for YouTube and I've been all over Snapchat.

"This DVD brings everything I do into one place and will tell you everything you need to know about 'Lean in 15'; how to enjoy exercise, learn about nutrition, get the body you want and become an absolute lean winner!

"To have a DVD coming out is massive, but for it to be with BBC Worldwide - home of 'Top Gear' and 'Doctor Who' - blows my mind. It's the perfect end to the perfect year, and I can't wait to keep getting people lean in 2017!"

The DVD will see the well-being enthusiast guide viewers through some of his trademark High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercises, as well as demonstrating a collection of new routines for those already familiar with his pulse-pumping workouts.

The video will also be packed full of quick and tasty new recipes as well as a wealth of tips for healthy eating.

Paul Hembury, Head of Entertainment Talent at BBC Worldwide said: "We're delighted to have secured the rights to work with the man the whole fitness world is talking about. Just as he has done on social media and in publishing, Joe's new DVD promises to breathe new life into the fitness market with his informal yet proven methods and his friendly, easy-going style.

"His new DVD promises to be both a must-have for devotees and an introduction to new audiences.

"We hope this will be the start of a long working relationship between Joe and BBC Worldwide."
