Who Is Sam Wood?
We might know him best as the third man to make ladies swoon in the Bachelor in Australia series, but Sam Wood has another calling: a fitness expert. With a little over 20 years of experience in keeping a healthy lifestyle, he’s since developed the 28 program to help Australians live better lives.
Why Go With The 28?
There’s a lot to unpack in Sam’s 28 program – and we’d prefer that you explore it yourself – but there are three things that we’d like to focus on: the meal plans, workouts, and the community.
The Meal Plans
It’s impossible to separate your diet from your lifestyle, so 28 by Sam Wood has a hefty chunk devoted to meal plans. Don’t think you will eat rabbit food: the suggested meals here are all delicious besides being good for you! Sam even offers alternatives to our favourite fast-food choices like pizza, so you get a new and healthier spin on old favourite food.
But while nutrition is the end game, Sam’s very careful to not scold or shame you for having your cheat days. He’s very clear in saying that these meal plans are suggestions (in fact, you can switch out the suggested meal of the day with any of the hundred meals in the app) and that it’s a guide, not a sentencing.
You have to prepare the meals yourself, but don’t worry: none of them take longer than 28 minutes to make. Even if you follow special dietary restrictions like gluten-free or vegan meals, there’s a little something in there for everyone.
Simple to prepare, delicious to eat – Sam’s made sure that everyone gets quite the treat on their way to a healthier bod. And we’re all for it!
Ever wonder how Sam got that picture-perfect body on the Bachelor? Well, you’ll be able to see all his tips and tricks with the workouts included in the 28. Designed to be easy to follow, effective on the body, and to be performed anywhere, these are some of the best workouts a busy person can fit into their day.
Sam’s knack for customising his plans for different needs shines here. There are five levels from Rookie to Maniac that you can choose if you want to lower or raise the intensity of your workouts. Even pregnant women also get their choice of exercise! Stick with the recommended workouts for a few days, then adjust as you see fit. You’ll feel (and see) the difference soon enough.
Doesn’t matter if you’re pumping iron in the gym or just following along at home, either. 28 by Sam Wood is accessible to anyone, anywhere! You won’t have an excuse to skip on exercising anymore.
Finally, the community of people that follow the 28 by Sam Wood program (named the 28rs) has built a strong support group for people who want to improve their lifestyle. You’ll find their glowing reviews on social media about how the program helped with their weight loss, peace of mind, and overall health. 28rs check in and leave messages for each other in their groups, and can even tackle workouts together!
Take this review from a satisfied 28r:
“Fast forward 8 months and I can’t believe the difference. I’m 10kg down but more importantly have lost a whopping 82cm, 25cm of those just from my stomach. I can’t thank Sam, Sam Crew and Steph enough for such a phenomenal change in not only my life but also my entire family’s life as they are now have a love of good food and exercise!” – Belinda
One peek into the #28samwood hashtag on Instagram will turn up dozens of progress reports, food made, and other experiences people have had with the program. It’s made a welcoming and supportive online group that are all united in their quest for a better and healthier lifestyle.
