NBC and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are partnering with Under Armour app Map My Fitness to promote new competition reality series The Titan Games, premiering Thursday, Jan. 3 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
Titan Games, hosted by Johnson, will find players stepping inside the Titan arena to battle opponents in head-to-head competitions, testing their physical, mental and emotional strength en route to winning the $100,000 grand prize.
To participate in the companion online contest, players first download the MapMyFitness app. Once they’ve got that on their phones, they log their workouts until Jan. 15. 2019 for a chance to win Under Armour “Project Rock” prize bundles as well as a $5,000 grand prize.
Along the way, participants earn badges every time they complete five workouts in a variety of categories, including walking, yoga, running or weights. Badges start with “Build the Belief,” when participants will also be entered to win the first of several Project Rock-branded bundles, with this first one including crew socks and a flat brim cap. Next up is the “Dream It. Do It” badge, earned after 10 workouts, when they are then eligible to win a pro series cap and a 40-ounce water bottle. After 15 workouts, they can win Under Armour’s number-one selling headphones and a backpack.
More ambitious athletes can try a “Train Like a Titan” workout, inspired by The Titan Games, and available on the MapMyFitness app’s Challenge landing page. They can also do the workout accompanied by Johnson’s personal workout playlist on Spotify, “Iron Paradise Airwaves,” also available on the app.
The athletic competition series is hosted and executive produced by Johnson, who is joined by fellow executive producers Arthur Smith and Dany Garcia. NBC Sports’ Liam McHugh and eSports announcer Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez will serve as commentators while Cari Champion reports from the field.
The 10-episode series comes from Universal Television Alternative Studio, A. Smith and Co., and Seven Bucks Productions.
