FITNESS guru Joe Wicks is now worth nearly £6 million after transforming the nation’s couch potato habits during lockdown.
The 33 year old deserves every penny after his daily workouts proved to be popular with millions of fans, who raved about his easy-to-follow routines.

In newly released accounts, his personal company Joe Wicks Ltd had assets of £3,478,270 and investments worth £3,722,256.
The firm, which looks after all his personal projects like online videos, TV and books, also had £343,838 cash in the bank.
Meanwhile, The Body Coach Online Nutrition – his company based in Richmond which now employs over 50 staff – reported retained earnings of £2,357,229 and had £1,266,642 cash in the bank.
Put the two companies together and the married father-of-two is worth £5,835,499, which works out at earnings of £15,987 a day.

This puts him way ahead of his competitors in the lucrative TV fitness market, which presenter Mark Wright’s just joined.
The former Towie star is behind Joe, but his earnings aren’t to be sniffed at – his company The Wright Looks had reserves of £1,134,776 last year, his best ever tally.
Joe’s popularity soared as his videos and T-shirts helped raise £500,000 for the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic, and he is now set to be immortalised as a Madame Tussauds waxwork.
A source told The Sun: “Madame Tussauds is always monitoring which celebrities are popular and which aren’t. Joe is huge right now and at the very top of their list.”

He recently revealed that the BBC and Channel 4 had approached him to ask if he would work with them to create workout videos for families stuck at home during the lockdown.
However, he declined both networks, and told Men’s Health magazine: “All these channels are coming to me, and I’ve said to them, ‘Look, I want to do this on YouTube.
“I’m reaching more people. Why would I want to do it with you?’”
He added of his lockdown boom: “Normally, I’d be lucky to get 100,000 views of a workout over six months. I’d never seen anything like it. It’s blown me away.”
