A FAMOUS body coach visited a school in East Renfrewshire yesterday to do a workout with its pupils.

Joe Wicks MBE visited Carolside Primary in Clarkston on Monday, May 22, as part of his 12-stop UK schools’ tour.

During his visit, youngsters at the education centre were able to take part in a workout with the fitness coach and well-known author, while they were also able to ask him some questions.

According to Active Schools East Renfrewshire, more than 800 pupils took part in the exercise.

Posting to social media, Carolside ELC said: “What a morning! We just loved it.

“What an atmosphere, we’re so pleased we were your first school on your tour.

“Enjoy the rest of your UK school’s tour. You’ve inspired lots of young minds today.”

While East Renfrewshire Council said: “Carolside Primary had a very special visitor this morning… the one and only The Body Coach.

“The entire school (plus parents and a couple of pooches!) did a workout with Joe and then some lucky pupils had the chance to ask him a question.

“A big thanks to Joe for coming along and getting us all moving, and to the school staff for organising it.”
