TV show description:
This competition series follows contestants as they embark on a transformative journey to find a balance between mind and body as they work to “get strong.” Professional volleyball player and fitness expert Gabrielle Reece hosts the program.
Each looking to improve herself mentally and physically, 10 women from all walks of life work with 10 elite male fitness trainers. The contestants train in pairs and work to conquer a series of challenges that push them to their limits.
In each episode, the two-person teams train together and compete in multiple physical challenges that incorporate a number of formidable obstacles. The challenges put them to the test in the areas of strength, endurance and mental stamina.
As the contestants strive to dominate the courses and the competition, they see flab turn to muscle, doubt turn to confidence, and weakness turn to strength.
Each week one team is eliminated, and at the end of every episode, their transformational journey is shown.
At the end of the season, the winning team takes home up to $500,000.
