Bodies in Motion
|Synopsis||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 go crazy looking for 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 Motion'.
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'.
