Contestants Include 10 Experienced Trainers & 10 Worthy Trainees from Around the Country Who Will Join Host Gabrielle Reece in a Transformative Journey

          The show's 20 contestants - 10 male trainers and 10 female trainees - are embarking on a transformative journey together in order to reach their full potential. The impressive cast joins host Gabrielle Reece, a world-class athlete who embodies the notion of "Strong." As the series will demonstrate, getting fit is not necessarily about losing weight but achieving a balance between mind and body, and getting in shape both physically and emotionally.

          The show's 10 trainers, who have come from around the country to get their trainees in shape, are Adam Rothfelder (Milwaukee, WI), Bennie Wylie (Tuscola, TX), Chris Ryan (New York, NY), Dan Wells (Studio City, CA), Drew Logan (Manhattan Beach, CA), Ky Evans (Marina del Rey, CA), Leyon Azubuike (Santa Monica, CA), Mathew Miller (Las Vegas, NV) Todd Durkin (San Diego, CA)  and Wesley Okerson (Los Angeles, CA).

          The 10 trainees, all anxious to get into the best shape possible, are Brittany Harrell-Miller (Lawrence, KS), Claudia "CC" Collazo (Teaneck, NJ), Devon Cassidy (Allston, MA), Giovanna Cicerchia (Wyckoff, NJ), Jasmine Loveless (West Hollywood, CA), Jill May (Willman, MN), Mahogany Brown Roberts (Nashville, TN), Nicole Bentley (Los Angeles, CA), Sarah Miller (Chicago, IL) and Victoria Castillo (Santa Ana, CA).

 

          From MMA to strength & endurance training to boxing, these athletes represent a wide variety of disciplines and will impart their training philosophy, experience and unrelenting dedication to their trainees. The individual pairings will be revealed in the April 13 sneak preview episode. In every episode each team will train together and compete in epic physical challenges. 

          After a series of challenges, two teams will head to the Elimination Tower, where they will do battle in a four story monolith where every muscle and ounce of determination will be put to the test. Each week, one of the teams is eliminated and later, their jaw dropping transformation will be revealed. Ultimately, the winning team will take home a significant cash prize of up to $500,000, which is a result of their overall performance.
