I haven’t felt deprived — but empowered — resulting in a completely transformed lifestyle. I’ve never been more proud of myself!

It is so inspiring to see someone completely transform themselves, inside and out. It makes me so proud to know my home program has already helped 300,000 Australians get fitter and healthier.

I recently caught up with some of our 28ers on my “Give Sam a Hug Tour”, and I’d love you to hear what they had to say about their personal transformations on my program.

Who am I?

Sam Wood founder of 28bySamWood

I created ’28 by Sam Wood’ because I was tired of seeing people waste their time and money training the wrong way, eating the wrong foods and not being supported or educated in a way that leads to genuine change and sustainable results.

I am a personal trainer with over 20 years of experience. My methods and training techniques have achieved incredible results for thousands of people. I keep things simple, because I know what works and what doesn’t.

When it comes to helping people get fit & healthy, I have been lucky enough to experience it all. I started my career as a humble fitness instructor at my university gym while studying Exercise Science, and soon enough I was running my own personal training business, booked solid with 90 appointments a week. I later opened Gecko Sports (Australia’s first-ever kid’s gym), which I built up to 30+ national franchises.

I’m now the proud owner of The Woodshed, Australia’s largest personal training studio in Melbourne, and a media commentator on all things health and fitness. But, most importantly, as founder of the 28 program I’m here with YOU every day as your friend, mentor and trainer.

28 is my life. It’s what I do, and it’s how I live.

28 breaks down the barriers that are holding you back and shows you, with just 28 minutes of exercise a day and a simple approach to healthy eating, that real transformation is possible. Id love you to join me and my 28 family as we get fitter and healthier together.

One of 28’s most inspirational transformation stories…

Linda lost 60kg in just 16 months

Linda really is a special lady and her results on our program are incredible. Linda started our program as a size 26, and transformed herself into a fit and healthy size 12.

At the start of her 28er journey she told me she couldn’t even walk around the block but look at her now. At 52 years of age and 60kg lighter, Linda just completed her first half-marathon.

VIDEO: When Sam met Linda

Linda lives in the UK but I was so blown away by her incredible health and weight loss achievement that I knew I had to meet her. Snez and I hopped on a plane for a surprise visit, where we learned more about Linda’s journey, and the amazing transformation she experienced on my home fitness & nutrition program.

I love this program and the community. Since joining I have never looked back. My lifestyle from then to now is so different. No migraines, normal blood pressure without medication and a wonderful active life. Anyone wanting to change their life, give this a go. Best value for money, easy to follow and as results have shown, so effective.
