    Rare photos from the gym of the Titanic are a trip (17 Photos)


    [​IMG]

    BY BOB 10 HOURS AGO IN: INTERESTING, MIND BLOWING, OLD TIMEY


    These vintage photos show a rarely seen view of the Titanic gym that passengers used to keep fit while on board. The gym had squash courts and Turkish baths amongst other things.

    Everything from rowing machines and exercise bikes to punching bags and horse-riding simulators, the equipment available was state-of-the-art back in that era.

    Sadly, the gym didn’t get used all that much I’m afraid to report.

    The Titanic in particular boasted a first class gymnasium, which was open from 9am until midday for women and between 2pm and 6pm for men.

    Too bad there wasn't a pool so that they all could have gone for a dip.

    I can clearly see something that could be called an Exercise Bike. Everything else looks ridiculous.

    It's ironic that there's a rowing machine in there. Came in handy for some.

    Notice how the idea of building an exact replica of that ship disappeared?

    I can't imagine why anyone would prefer that over this:

    Wow. Wearing suits while exercising? I wonder how long a "workout" was back then?

    Must have been nice to have an empty gym.

    The gym on my ship always had a two hour wait. And after a twelve hour shift - fuck that.
