Purple Wiggle John Pearce, 31, shares the health and fitness secrets behind his incredible physique
The Wiggles’ newest member John Pearce has revealed the health and fitness secrets behind his muscular physique.
The 31-year-old former Justice Crew star says he keeps fit by starting the day with a glass of water, a black coffee and a half-hour body weight workout.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, the buff performer said: ‘Your body is the product of your habits. It’s the most important asset you can have because you cannot do anything without it.’

‘I believe that having a holistic approach to overall health is the key to a healthy body,’ he added.
‘That involves a balance of quality nutrition and enjoying the foods you love in moderation combined with a consistent fitness routine.’
Sharing some wisdom from his Dad, John said it was important to seize every moment, live in the present and not take life too seriously. He also says smiling, getting a good sleep and being social are key factors to good mental health.
John, who now wears the purple skivvy in the successful children’s group, is currently juggling studying a degree in Clinical Nutrition with The Wiggles’ Fruit Salad TV Big Show Tour.

To relax, he likes to make music or watch TV.
