Joe Wicks’s brand new podcast The Joe Wicks Podcast has topped the Apple podcast chart, just one week after launching.


He’s pushed Shagged, Married, Annoyed, the podcast from Chris and Rosie Ramsey into second place, with The Joe Rogan Experience at No.3, Grounded with Louis Theroux and 4, and No Such Thing as a Fish is at No.5.

In the weekly Joe Wicks podcast, Joe checks in with a well-known guest about their own connection between mental and physical health, its relationship to their personal success and the things they’ve been doing for some ‘me-time’. He’ll ask them how they pick up their mood and energy, how they stay physically and mentally active, and how they’ve been balancing work and family life. In each episode guests will share their wellbeing methods and ask Joe to give them a go.

Guests include: fellow podcast host Fearne Cotton, TV chef Gordon Ramsay, Kim Kardashian’s body trainer Melissa Alcantara, American ultramarathon runner and author Robin Arzon, legendary broadcaster Louis Theroux, actor and presenter David Harewood, former Buddhist monk and co-founder of Headspace Andy Puddicombe, comedian and writer Russell Brand and musician James Bay; with more guests to be announced.

Listeners can expect to laugh and be motivated to get up and get active, with Joe proving there are many ways to do that and have fun from the comfort of your own living room, balcony or garden.

Joe said: “Having my very own podcast where I can speak to the people I have always been interested in has always been a dream of mine. I can’t wait for listeners to learn about my guest’s secrets to personal wellbeing with some laughs and interesting life chats along the way.”

The Joe Wicks Podcast is available now via BBC Sounds and other platforms including Apple.
