At the start of No Pain, No Gain, two ex-cycling champions are given a team of eleven beer-drinking, chain smoking, overweight, unfit amateur cycling clubs. Their goal is to train the team to cycle the steep mountains on the path of the Tour de France. They only have four short months to educate and get their team into shape. This process won’t only be hard for the cyclists but also be for the team members since they have to quit all their bad habits - the way they eat, sleep and drink.
Every week, the participants are pushed to their limit during long sessions of back-breaking and arduous training. The show culminates to an exciting finale that sees the race in the mountains. The team that brings the highest number of cyclists to the finish line within the time limit, wins the challenge.
