    Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?

    Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.

    Tim Peake has the coolest job on earth. Or rather, NOT on earth. He's an astronaut!

    In 2009 he applied to the European Space Agency, and beat over eight thousand other applicants to get the job. But that was just the start. Six years of training later, Tim blasted off to the International Space Station, only the second ever Brit in space and the first to do a spacewalk. In an out-of-this-world chat, Joe and Tim talk about what it feels like to look down on our beautiful home from the darkness of space, and Tim shares his secrets to staying fit in zero gravity.

    They also chat about Tim's life before space, which was just as big an adventure! He spent 19 years as a helicopter pilot for the army, flying reconnaissance missions all over the world, and test-flying Apache helicopters. He says the pure joy of flying never left him, and now back on earth he's keen to get back in the cockpit.

    And they talk about the biggest challenge of all: parenthood!

    Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?

    Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.

    Jo Malone built her perfume empire from very humble beginnings: some big plastic tubs, a kitchen table, and a dream. With no money but buckets of self belief, she managed to build a fragrance brand recognisable around the world. Then tragedy hit, in the form of a terrifying diagnosis of terminal cancer. With only months to live, Jo was forced to stand down from the company she loved, and fight for her life.

    Many years later, miraculously cancer free and back to her best, Jo started the whole process again. Back at the kitchen table, surrounded by jars and bottles, Jo founded her second fragrance company, Jo Loves. This is the story of a woman who doesn't give up, and believes in the power of dreams to pull you through the darkest of times. Joe and Jo chat entrepreneurship, parenthood, and learning to be grateful for the small things.

    10. Mark Cavendish: There is always a finish line

    Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?

    Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.

    Mark Cavendish MBE is one of the UK's most successful sportsmen. Known as the 'Manx Missile', he's been World Champion on the track and on the road, BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2011, and though he's missed the Tour de France in 2020, with 30 stage victories, he's sitting second only to Eddy Merckx for the most of all time. Who would have thought that when he's recovering from a race, he likes nothing more than building lego sets and improving his drawing.

    Joe sits down with his friend Mark for an intimate conversation about cycling (that time Mark dragged Joe up a mountain in Italy). But also about Mark's experience of depression and the impact it had on his health, career and the people closest to him. Mark talks about the restorative power of time spend doing normal 'Dad stuff' at home, and his pride in being part of a modern moment for British cycling.

Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.

    Jamie Oliver has been cooking on our TV screens and campaigning for good food for more than two decades. He's written 24 books and sold more than 36 million books worldwide. You knew that stuff, but did you know that Jamie is an avid music composer or that he loves nothing more than kicking back in a hammock in his garden?

    Jamie inspired a teenage Joe Wicks to get in the kitchen, so during their conversation they talk eating and growing food and keeping fit. He also hears about Jamie's struggles with dyslexia, sleep and how the 2019 collapse of his restaurant chain almost took him to the edge. As well as making two TV series in lockdown, Jamie explains it also gave him a chance to rediscover a love for composing music and playing the drums.

    Joe Wicks wants to know: What’s the one thing that makes life better?

    Joe loves finding ways to boost his mental and physical health, so he’s asking some of his inspiring mates about their secret to physical and mental happiness. Whether it’s a high-intensity cycle, a freezing cold shower or a good long dog-walk, every guest will share the one thing that works for them.

    Melissa Alcantara is best known as Kim Kardashian's personal trainer, but it was her own personal journey, from yo-yo dieting and experiencing post-natal depression to finding happiness through starting her own work out plan which inspired Kim in the first place. Today Melissa is a writer, owns her own fitness brand, and still trains Kim six days a week!

    In this podcast, Joe hears Melissa's inspirational story. They talk about parenting, the importance of being honest on social media and their shared passion for hitting the road on their motorbikes. Melissa explains that as much as she loves riding through the Californian canyons, she also finds peace and calm on her surfboard, or walking along the beach at daybreak.
