The UK’s favourite fitness coach is back with series three of his podcast. This summer, Joe is speaking to inspirational friends and some of his favourite people to ask them what they do to keep themselves feeling mentally and physically strong.
In this episode Joe chats to freestyle footballer and online creative Jeremy Lynch. As one half of the F2 Freestylers, Jeremy started out performing his tricks at half-time shows and events, but it was when they started posting videos on Youtube that things really took off. He went on to work with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. His comedy skits on TikTok amassed millions of followers leading to opportunities to branch out into presenting, interviewing Hollywood A-listers like Tom Holland, Zendaya and Daniel Craig.
Jeremy and Joe speak about his transition from footballer to creative and how it's enabled him to provide for his family. They discuss the amount of work involved in producing so much content, and why perfection is a flawed concept, even for a perfectionist. Jeremy talks about why reconnecting with nature has been hugely important to his mental health, his relationship with music, and why he prioritises adding value to himself and those around him both in real life and online. He talks about his relationship with his wife Shauna, and why he'd love to direct a feature-length film.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
