Physical 100 is Netflix's first Korean reality survival series, where 100 contestants who can be considered the top athletes in their fields compete in a series of gruelling tests of strength, mental fortitude and endurance with the hope of being the sole survivor of the fittest.
Of the 100 -- a mix of former-Olympians, mixed-martial arts (MMA) fighters, body builders, fitness influencers, ex-military, and CrossFitters, contestant Woo Jin-Young was an underdog throughout the competition. He won individual and team events to get to the final five, and eventually came out top in the competition. He accords his victory to his CrossFit training regime and his prior experience as a competitive snowboarder.
