One of the first workout TV shows launched in the early 80’s. It was the first exercise TV show that successfully enthralled the industry at that time in my opinion. It was comprised with only one season and discontinued afterward. Though discontinued, the show was resurgent later- with the same name and directed by the same person Ron Harris.
