|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 shows..
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 series.
