How do the world's best athletes accomplish such amazing things in their sport? This Emmy Award-winning series attempts to find out by performing innovative experiments in state-of-the-art scientific facilities. Host John Brenkus, a four-time Ironman Triathlon competitor, also serves as the show's test dummy, if you will, as he's often flattened, dragged, choked or otherwise abused in these tests, which place him up against top-notch pro athletes performing their specific skill. The goal is to help viewers elevate not only their own athletic skills but also their human potential.
