‘Joe’s positive impact has put him on the radar of thousands of teachers and senior figures within education.
‘Gavin Williamson has been leading the dialogue around how Joe is able to carry the message of the importance of physical education.’

Family man Joe has helped parents and children through the current COVID-19 lockdown by tutoring PE classes online.
And his efforts have reportedly lined him up for an OBE, after he was put forward by his legions of fans.
According to The Sun, Joe’s social media fans have nominated him for the summer Honours list after the work he has done to raise money.
A source told the publication: ‘Joe has become a household name since lockdown started and he’s become a figurehead in isolation because of the PE classes he puts on every morning.
Succes: The Body Coach, 33, has raised more than £350,000 for the NHS through his YouTube classes and roped in his wife Rosie Jones to help when he was sidelined with a hand injury
‘Hundreds of requests putting his name forward for an OBE have been handed to the Honours committee. Many have been written by children who think Joe is fantastic.
‘Those around Joe think the chances of him getting a nod are high, especially given the praise he’s had from No10 and the fact that Prince William’s three children — George, Charlotte and Louis — all do the class daily.’
The source added that the fitness expert had no idea his classes would become so popular and getting an honour from the Queen would be the ‘icing on the cake’.
