These shows have not been on the air in over 10 years. But now Gilad is making them
available to you once again. This series is a must for the serious collector and dedicated
follower. Remember, this is the only place where these shows are available.
The 200 series debuted in 1986 and consists of 31
episodes. That’s 31 different workouts. There is one for
every day of the month.
There are plenty of beautiful settings. The locations
include 2 small secluded un-named beaches on the North
Shore of Oahu close to Waimea Bay. We also shot at a
North Shore ocean-front private home. There was
another secluded beach near Turtle Bay on Oahu and 2
different locations on the grounds of the Kona Surf Resort
on the Big Island of
Hawaii. You will see
beautiful women, rugged lava rock ocean-front cliffs, palm
trees and other lush tropical foliage, silhouettes over
sparkling waters and exotically beautiful beaches. If you
have been watching the show for the last 26 years you know
that it is a tour of the most beautiful spots in the Hawaiian
The people on the show are every bit as interesting as the
settings. Gilad’s sister Ada was a
regular this season. In 2 years (1988) she would be moving on to
her own show, ‘Basic Training the Workout’ also produced by Gilad.
In addition to Gilad, Gilad’s mother Ora and his sister, you will meet
Sherry Bush, a model, actress and aerobics instructor, Tammyra
Powers, a University of Hawaii Rainbow Dancer and John
Watchahowski, a student in Virginia going for his masters in Physical
Education. And, as always, Gilad has a few conversations with his
crazy old friend Henry (played by show’s director, Rob Hearn).
You will meet Peaches, the bored cockatoo, and various
other exotic birds. There is
horseback riding, ships and boats
and 3 kid’s shows, including the
famous ‘Muscle Face’ show. Gilad
appears as a cowboy, a conductor,
an interview show host, a sculptor
and a judge just to name a few.
He even wears his ‘Tweety Bird’
shirt a couple of times.
The 200 series is a lot of fun, and best of all, you get 31 complete workouts that you can use at
your own convenience. Have fun with it!
The 300 series has not been broadcast for more than 10 years. But now Gilad has made
them available once more. Relive 1987 with Gilad and the team. Remember, this is the only
place these shows are available.
The 300 series debuted in 1987 and consists of 20 episodes. That means 20 different
workouts. To avoid confusion, please note that episode #306 never existed.
The locations include the cliffs by
the Makapu’u Lighthouse
overlooking the windward side of
Oahu and Rabbit Island, the Royal
Prince cruise yacht off the coast of
Waikiki and Ka’anapali Beach on
the Island of Maui. You will see
Diamond Head and Waikiki from a
unique vantage point, off shore. You will see the town of
Waimanalo from high above on the cliffs by the Makapu’u Lighthouse. You will see Ka’anapali
Beach on Maui and the Island of Lanai off the Maui coast. You
will see parasailers, ultralight one-man planes, exotic birds and
even a cow named Betsy. This series is a must-have to
complete your tour of the Hawaiian Islands.
The 300 series is the season of the vertical stripes on the
women’s tops. Last year was predominantly horizontal stripes.
In about 75 percent of this year’s shows you will see vertical
stripes, fat ones, thin ones, colored ones and black and white.
They must have been all the rage at the end of 1986 when these shows were shot.
This is Gilad’s sister Ada’s last year as a regular on the
show. Next season Gilad will produce another ESPN
show for her to host, ‘Basic Training, the Workout’.
Gilad’s mother is always nearby. She tells the story of
her experience with breast cancer. There is a pair of
Scandinavian girls this year. Anina is from Norway and
Mette is of Scandinavian descent. Jonathan is from the
US Army and Ed is an instructor at Jane Fonda’s
fitness studio in Los Angeles. Carole Lum is a
champion body builder. But the big event of this year
was the debut of perennial favorite Trella. Trella is not
only America’s sweetheart, she is also a professional
fitness trainer from the North Shore of Oahu. Notice how young she looks in this series of
You will see Gilad as a martial arts master, a pirate, a mechanic, a prisoner, a ship’s captain, a
TV camera operator, a cannibal and a singer. He attempts to sing the song ‘Physical’. (You
might want to avoid downloading that one.)
Your collection of shows and your tour of the Hawaiian Islands is not complete without the 300
Episode # 401 is the only episode that still airs on FitTV.
The rest have not been seen for over 10 years. Relive
1988 with Gilad and the team. This is the only place
these shows are available.
The 400 series debuted in 1988. There are 22 episodes.
That means 22 different workouts. Don’t be alarmed if
you can’t find show #405. It never existed.
There are 3 basic locations.
1. A secluded beach near Makaha on the west coast of Oahu.
2. The spot on Magic Island where Gilad’s FitTV show ‘Total Body Sculpt with Gilad’ is shot.
3. Another scenic spot on the other side of Magic Island by a beautiful lagoon.
You will see 3 great kid’s shows featuring ‘Gilad’s Super Kids’. A show where a chimpanzee
named Buster runs amok. There are fabulous views of Diamond Head, Waikiki and Kaena
Point. There are yachts sailing by just a few yards offshore. You will see Lucky the macaw and
China Girl, the runaway cockatoo. There is Hawaiian music
from the all female quartet, ‘Puamana’. You will even see
Gilad’s mother barbequing carrots!
This is Sherry’s last season, Trella’s 2nd season and Kent’s first
season. A real treat in this series is Trella teaching and
performing Hula in a couple of different episodes. This is Ada’s
first season with her own show ‘Basic Training, the Workout’, so
she only does a few
guest appearances on
‘Bodies In Motion’. The shows shot at the Magic
Island Lagoon are like a Janklowicz family reunion.
Gilad’s mom Ora, sister Ada and his other sister, Dana
(age 18), who is rarely seen on the show, all join in.
There is Hawaiian entertainment and Trella dons
Hawaiian garb to perform the hula for you. There are
also special guest appearances from Sue Grace, a
regular on Ada’s show but rarely seen on ‘Bodies In
You will see Gilad as a
cowboy, anchor man, storyteller, track star, cop, chess player,
sand skier?, mechanic and waiter. His crazy old pal Henry
(played by show’s director Rob Hearn) appears as a bartender,
barber and a farmer (growing couch potatoes)!
The 400 series is full of surprises! For instance, the theme music
at the beginning of the show has been revised to incorporate
Polynesian percussion. You can hear the difference between the
300 and 400 series opens. Also, this year the aerobics and floor work are 2 different segments.
They are joined in the 200 and 300 series’. Which do you like better?
