Sam admitted that his favorite Britney track to play while exercising is "Stronger." And whether he's in or out of the gym, the model and fitness lover can't help but share the positive influence his leading lady has on his life.

"She motivates me more than anyone. It's crazy how I can be humbled by a person like her," he explained to the publication. "If I could be that humble when I'm that high in life, that would be the best thing. I grew up with three sisters, and my personality is just to be a supportive person for my family and she's family. I'm always going to support her. She is another blessing that happened to me."
