Survival Gym chain is in crisis when the founder dies and son Kent is arrested but he suspects stepmother Jayne. In soap opera fashion the gym's trainers run the gamut from gigolo Gianni to struggling actress Cleo.
This is a very well intentioned series, so it's hard to get down on it for it's faults, but it does have a few. The stories are basically soap opera rehash, so there's never anything surprising. The actors are all very good, sometimes a little hammy though. It's the direction that seems to be lacking, there is nothing interesting done with the camera at all, it's very bland stylistically. The music can get a little maudlin too, but I do appreciate what they're trying to do, I just wish they'd do it a little better.
