Go Hard or Go Home is based on a tropical island with an “elite team” ready to help change the lives of eight contestants whilst pushing them to their limits.

The ‘Warriors’ are made up of fighters, sportspeople and athletes and will help the contestants who have found themselves wanting to get healthy again.

After long illnesses, life trauma and others just looking for change, the Warriors will help motivate and transform contestants with gruelling challenges.

The Warriors are some of the strongest in UK fitness and understand the power of exercise and will help contestants overcome their life challenges.

The BBC said: “Which of the Warriors will take their trainee to the final? Will they be able to transform their teammates’ mind and body? Or will this epic reality show prove to be one challenge too great?”
