‘Strong’ Episode Guide (April 13): 20 People Begin Grueling Strength and Conditioning Challenges

“Welcome to Strong; Balls to the Wall” Series Premiere (04/13/16) – Ten women competitors, each looking to reach their full potential by getting physically and mentally strong, and 10 elite male trainers from around the country arrive at the “STRONG” compound to train and compete together in epic strength and conditioning challenges.

After a grueling first week, two teams face off at the Elimination Tower, a daunting four-story obstacle course that determines which teams will stay on and which team goes home. In the end, the eliminated contestant shows off a jaw-dropping transformation.

As the “STRONG” teams settle into their new routines, the teams will compete in their first Medallion Challenge for a chance to earn $25,000 and safety from the Elimination Tower. Tempers flare when Milwaukee-based trainer Adam Von Rothfelder learns how his fellow contestants feel about him.

Two more teams face off in the Elimination Tower and one team is eliminated. They return to reveal the jaw-dropping transformation.

NBC’s “STRONG” is a competition show like no other. Contestants are embarking on a transformative journey in order to reach their full potential. As they will learn, it’s not necessarily about losing weight but rather, about finding the balance between mind and body. It’s about getting strong.

Professional volleyball player and fitness expert Gabrielle Reece hosts the 10-episode series, from executive producers Dave Broome (“The Biggest Loser”), Oscar-nominated iconic film star Sylvester Stallone, Kevin King Templeton (“Creed”), and Holly Wofford (“American Ninja Warrior”).

Ten everyday women from all walks of life – each of whom are looking to improve themselves mentally and physically – will join with 10 of the most elite male fitness trainers in the nation.

The contestants will train in pairs and work to conquer a series of challenges that push everyone to the limit.

In every episode, each two-person team will train together and compete in multiple physical challenges that incorporate a number of formidable obstacles. The challenges will put them to the ultimate test in strength, endurance and mental stamina. As the contestants strive to dominate the courses and the competition, we’ll see flab turned to muscle, doubt turned to confidence and weakness turned to strength.

Each week one team will be eliminated and at the end of every episode, their inspiring transformation will be revealed. The winning team will take home a significant cash prize of up to $500,000, which is a result of their overall performance.

This empowering series will tap into the next generation of the health and wellness movement and seeks to inspire millions of people around the world to get strong.

“STRONG” is produced by 25/7 Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television.
