Gabrielle Reece Named Host of NBC’s Upcoming Competition Series ‘Strong’

Professional volleyball player Gabrielle Reece has been tapped to host NBC’s upcoming transformation competition series “Strong,” which hails from exec producers Sylvester Stallone and “The Biggest Loser” creator Dave Broome.

Tapping into the health and wellness movement, “Strong” matches 10 everyday women with the world’s most elite fitness trainers to conquer tough obstacles — both mentally and physically. During the 10 episodes, the female contestants and their pro partners will embark on a transformative journey in order to reach their full potential.

“I couldn’t be more proud and thrilled to partner up with NBC on ‘Strong,'” said Reece. “The opportunity to share the concept of people wanting to and working toward tapping into their greatness is a dream. My hope is that we can use the show to inspire and motivate others.”

Every episode will feature all of the two-person teams working together in a series of grueling challenges, and at the end of each episode, one team will be eliminated per week.

In addition to volleyball, Reece is a fitness expert who has served as the host of Fit TV’s series “Insider Training.” She is also the creator of HIGHX Training, a high-intensity co-ed group fitness program.

“Strong” hails from 25/7 Productions and Sony Pictures Television, and is exec produced by Stallone, Broome and Holly Wofford (“American Ninja Warrior,” “Survivor”).
