Chris Long is an ex-NCAA basketball player turned trainer who finds a new purpose when his gym's new owner, Jack, unleashes a lucrative plan to turn the neglected business into a reality show. When Chris' co-workers resist this new direction, he and Jack form an unlikely alliance that allows them to face the demons of their pasts and ultimately, save the gym's future.



Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a score of 14% based on reviews from 7 critics.[4]

The film's French dub became notorious for its very low quality, as it was dubbed in South Africa by amateur actors.[5] Netflix reacted to the film's negative reception by ordering a redub by the Titrafilm studio.[6]
