Svett & korsett - Mediko-mekaniskt gym

Photo: Tekniska museet

But the way in which we exercise also reflects the development of technology. The gyms of today have developed from a prototype designed by Doctor Gustaf Zander more than 150 years ago. This is an exhibition about his medico-mechanical gymnastic apparatus with which visitors to his gym – smartly dressed in suits and corsets – improved their bodies with exercises such as arm-twisting, thigh-chopping and the vibrating horse-rider.
