GO HARD OR GO HOME: MEET THE TRAINEES FOR NEW BBC THREE SERIES
In this new, adrenalin-fuelled challenge reality series, eight people who feel lost in life (the Trainees) pair up with eight fitness pros (the Warriors) to compete in epic challenges designed to push their minds and bodies to the absolute limit.
The Warriors have all used sports and fitness to overcome demons in their own lives, and now they're ready to put their reputations on the line to prove they can do the same for their trainee too.
But this is the island of tough love... To transform the trainees' minds and bodies, each Warrior has to push their Trainee through a hardcore 28-day regime, along the way battling it out alongside them in a series of spectacular challenges.
As the days pass, the Trainees get stronger and the challenges get tougher - but not all the pairs will make it to the end of the month, as only the strongest can stay on the island. Which Warrior can get their Trainee to the bitter end? Which pair will be the strongest? And who will leave the island transformed?
