Add time spent online, playing video games and watching television, and we're faced with one physically unfit generation.

(U.S. Premiere: Monday, June 27 at 8PM ET/PT). No matter what your age, this series will be sure to spark the question - are you fitter than a senior?

Swapping out fast food for healthy eating, the young adults are pushed to their physical and emotional limits.
