COULD YOU SURVIVE? scenarios include: -- A race to save a loved one injured in a car accident -- An escape from a raging wildfire -- A rescue mission to save a family member from a freak boating accident -- An attempt to flee a crumbling building devastated by an earthquake
Pushed to the limit, participants are forced to rely on their strength, stamina and mental fortitude in order to survive. But one by one, the obstacles prove too difficult for their out-of-shape bodies. Newly inspired, they commit to transforming their lifestyles, all in an effort to retake the challenge and reclaim their lives.
With the help of Dr. Peeke and her team, the participants undergo an intense month-long training program designed to give them the physical and emotional tools they need to survive in a crisis. Dr. Peeke works to reshape their nutrition habits while the Marine trainers condition their bodies. After several weeks, the participants return to the COULD YOU SURVIVE? disaster site to face the challenge again … hopefully this time, with a different outcome.
