#128: Sam Wood on fitness, family and being relatable

By Jordan Michaelides

Sam Wood is the Founder of 28 by Sam Wood, The Woodshed, and the original GeckoSports. He’s the third Bachelor of Australia’s series airing in 2015, meeting his now-wife, Snezana, on the show. 

What I respect about Sam is his humble attitude that was forged in the decade before The Bachelor even took place. His hard work ethic, combined with an appreciation for time with family, is something that as a man I can’t help but look up to. 

In this episode we covered:

  • Growing up in Tassie
  • Hard work and the value of money
  • Family and principles
  • Life post-The Bachelor
  • 28 by Sam Wood & The Woodshed
  • Learning from Snezana
