Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

This unoriginal competition attempts to underscore that getting healthy and building strength shouldn't be the only goal when working out. As such, most of the conversations throughout the workouts and challenges are about being physically and emotionally strong enough to get through it. Nonetheless, weight loss is happily revealed as part of the women's success stories.

Despite the lack of weigh-ins, there's enough competitive -- and sometimes unpleasant -- behavior, especially among the trainers, to stir things up. The ongoing training sessions in between challenges also get a little tedious. Folks may be inspired by the whole thing, but despite the claims it makes, it really doesn't offer anything new.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
