Sam is one of Australia’s leading fitness experts and a personal trainer with over 18 years of experience in the fitness industry.
From a humble fitness instructor at his university gym during his first year of exercise science to a personal trainer doing 90 appointments a week and opening Gecko Sports (Australia's first ever kids gym), Sam has been lucky enough to experience it all. Today Sam is the very proud owner of The Woodshed, Australia's largest personal training studio in Brighton, Victoria. He’s also a celebrity trainer, media commentator, and regular contributor to print and digital media, with a refreshingly honest and relatable take on all things health and fitness, as well as being the founder, mentor and trainer at 28 by Sam Wood.
