Storyline

American Grit is a physical, military-based reality competition, hosted by wrestling superstar John Cena. 16 American contestants are divided into four teams of four, which are all lead by four separate American military service people. The four team leaders/coaches consist of an Army Ranger sniper, a Navy Seal team leader, a Marine Corps sergeant, and an Army sergeant - all of whom have seen combat, and all of whom are highly decorated. The contestants will have to fight through challenge after challenge, all of which are modeled after real military training platforms, while dealing with the elements of the wilderness - not to mention each other. At the end of each episode, the team leaders of the 3 losing teams will pick a contestant from their team to run the dreaded Circus obstacle course.

Entertaining, heartwarming and motivational
31 August 2016 | by hannanjcSee all my reviews

This show is easy and fun to watch. The setting (scenery) was beautiful and the lodge where they stayed was amazing. It is so cool to see places like this. Well done and entertaining challenges, inspirational dialogue and John Cena is perfect as the host! I am so impressed by him. My whole family loved this show and are now huge fans of John Cena, even though we were never into wrestling. Watching the Cadres motivate and bond with the contestants was so neat. I would love to see this show continue. I hope there are many more seasons to come. We don't watch much TV but did not miss an episode of this first season and will definitely watch the next season. This show is great- I would even love to watch all of the same Cadres return to do the next season. So great!!!
