About us

The Body Coach is on a mission to make the world fitter, healthier and happier.

Founded in 2012, the Body Coach has grown to become one of the biggest and most loved fitness brands in the UK. Joe Wicks started the journey handing out flyers at his local train station, trying to get customers to join his outdoor bootcamps in the park. Ten years and 600,000 clients later, the Body Coach brand is recognised around the world, and known for its accessible and fun approach to fitness and nutrition.

With award-winning apps on iOS and Android, the business is reaching more people than ever before, and we are looking for the best people to help us on the next chapter of our journey.
