In our age of reality television, shows like "The Biggest Loser," "Survivor" and "The Amazing Race" have captivated America and generated water cooler buzz for years. On April 13, a new show is set to draw you in and showcase the grit and determination of its contestants like no other has before. Prepare yourself for NBC's newest reality competition, "STRONG."
On "STRONG," 10 elite male trainers are paired with 10 women from all over the U.S. who are looking to get in the best shape of their lives. These trainers include Cybex favorites Chris Ryan and Todd Durkin, who have both been recently featured as part of the #SPARCFirst15 and will continue to share their "STRONG" experience with us here on the blog. Cybex is proud to have partnered with "STRONG" to provide SPARC, Arc Trainers and bikes for the compound's training facility.
Once paired with their trainer, the women will compete in a series of grueling physical challenges. If the pair doesn't succeed, they will face elimination, but not before they have one last chance at survival by tackling The Tower - a five-story behemoth filled with challenges to test their mind, body and spirit.
is produced by Dave Broome and Sylvester Stallone. The competition is hosted by Gabrielle Reece and premieres April 13 on NBC at 9 p.m. before moving to its regular time slot of Thursday nights at 8 p.m. Be sure to tune in and see how Chris, Todd, and all the contestants do.
