Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Sylvester Stallone and hosted by pro volleyball player, fitness expert, actress, model and author Gabrielle Reece, STRONG, an acronym for Start To Realize Our Natural Greatness, is a one-hour reality series that matches everyday women with the world's most elite trainers to conquer obstacles that were once unfathomable. 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). 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 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). STRONG premiered with back-to-back new episodes on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 from 9-11pm ET/PT on NBC before moving to its regular timeslot -- Thursdays at 8pm -- the next day.
On Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the season finale of STRONG. In the season ender, "The Final Showdown," the two remaining teams are pushed to their absolute limits in three punishing legs of the finals. Every ounce of mental fortitude and acquired strength are on display as they fight tooth and nail for the right to take home their prize money and be crowned the winner.
