Stallone’s ‘Strong’ Airs Tonight
What happens when you match 10 female contestants looking to improve their fitness with 10 of the best personal trainers around? Strong, executive produced by Sylvester Stallone and hosted by former pro volleyball player and model Gabriel Reese will take contestants and their trainers through the rigors of training, which includes a physically challenging obstacle course called “Elimination Tower” that can abruptly end a contestant’s quest for ultimate fitness.
The show’s producers say Strong focuses on shaping and sculpting the body rather than concentrating on all out weight loss. “Strong is going to be, in my estimation, a revolutionary show because it’s going to take 20 people, put them together, and their lives are going to be changed forever,” Stallone told PEOPLE magazine.
“Being strong can have a lot of interpretations nowadays. People say mentally strong, physically strong, spiritually strong, but this has everything.”
Strong airs tonight at 9/8c on NBC.
