Gruen and The Project. Now Todd Sampson is putting his body on the line all in the name of science. Not many people can say they have stepped into the ring to face off against a world champion mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, but with just two weeks of training and a camera crew in tow, the experience is just one of many crazy stunts Todd Sampson puts himself through in a new series set to premier this month on Ten. Body Hack will see media personality Todd go through the ringer, pushing his mind and body to its limits as he meets some of the world’s most incredible and extreme people, and investigates the science behind what they do by putting himself in their shoes. It’s a fascinating concept, and one that ties in with our October issue’s theme of ‘Health’, so to find out more about the inspiration, or as some might say, madness behind the idea, I sat down for a chat with the man behind the series himself, Todd Sampson.
