New NBC Reality Show 'STRONG' Focuses On Building Muscle Instead of Just Getting Skinny

A new fitness-focused reality show is coming to NBC, featuring STACK partner and expert contributor Todd Durkin

S.T.R.O.N.G. Transformation

If you combine The Biggest Loser with American Ninja Warrior, you might end up with something similar to STRONG., a new fitness-focused reality show coming April 13 to NBC.

The premise of STRONG is simple: 10 women from around the country who desperately want to get in shape will pair up with 10 elite male trainers. The trainers will help the women transform their bodies for the better and will compete alongside them in a number of weekly physical challenges. If a duo can't cut it, they'll be eliminated. When all is said and done, the last team standing will walk away with a cash prize of up to $500,000.

One of the trainers featured on STRONG will be STACK partner and expert contributor Todd Durkin, one of the top strength coaches in the industry. His client list includes a huge number of professional athletes, including Drew Brees and Gerald McCoy. We're looking forward to watching Durkin do his thing and help one of these women get seriously strong.
