Professional volleyball player, fitness expert, actress, model and author Gabrielle Reece has been named host of NBC's upcoming transformation competition series "STRONG" that matches everyday women with the world's most elite trainers to conquer obstacles that were once unfathomable. Every day millions of ordinary men and women are striving to be the best versions of themselves, but the pressures of everyday life are taxing diets, exercise routines, stress levels and more. Despite our overwhelming desire to better ourselves, we feel powerless and inadequate. How can we, in today's society, achieve our personal best with all of these curveballs thrown our way? This new series sets out to tackle this universal problem and prove that strength does not come from what you can do, but rather by overcoming things you once thought were impossible. "STRONG" will empower 10 women - all of whom are looking to improve themselves mentally and physically - and pair them with some of the world's top fitness trainers. These trainers will embark on this transformative journey with their respective partners, as well as themselves, in order for both of them to reach their full potential. In every episode, each two-person team will work together and compete in a series of grueling challenges. The challenges will put them to the ultimate test for strength, endurance and mental stamina. We'll see flab turned to muscle, doubt turned to confidence, weakness turned to strength. Each week a team will get eliminated but at the end of every episode their inspiring transformation will be revealed. This empowering series will tap into the next iteration of the health and wellness movement as the show will inspire millions of people around the world.
