Joe Wicks does 5k with Glasgow fans through city on Scotland tour

Fitness coach Joe Wicks took a squad of Glas wegians on a 5k through the city centre as part of the Scottish leg of his book tour.

The influencer is expected to visit 12 schools, book shops and more on an 8-day whistlestop tour of the town.

Wicks showed off his plush hotel room and his warm welcome as he checked into the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel and was gifted a bottle of Glaswegin on the house, as well as a note congratulating the star on his new book.

Wicks, also known as The Body Coach, shared to Instagram his intentions of going for a run this morning, as he was undecided whether or not he would go ahead with the plan.

As a way to keep his motivation up, Wicks invited his fans to come and meet him and show him around the city at 7am as he scheduled out half an hour for a 5k.

He tells fans in a video: “I ain’t got a clue round the city, or where I am or which way I’m going.

“SO if you fancy it, you’re a local and you live in Glasgow – meet me at this point and at 7am we’ll bang out a little 5k.”

Both Wicks and all the fans looked delighted as they joined up for a morning run, Wicks took to his stories afterwards to say: “Amazing, I love that – that’s the stuff.

“That’s what it’s about. It’s about community, it’s about inspiring each other, it’s about realising you can do anything if you put your mind to it.”
