DYWM Fun Fact
It was Francis Lowndes who created one of the first pieces of gym equipment. In 1796 he developed a device called the Gymnasticon. This forerunner of the home gym worked the body’s joints with cranks for the hands and pedals for the feet. The Gymnasticon was recommended for individuals who suffered from a wide range of calamities, such as gout, cerebral palsy and arthritis.
Although physical fitness had already begun to increase in popularity in the United States, it wasn’t until Charles Beck opened an outdoor gymnasium in 1824 in the state of Massachusetts that people began to have access to gym equipment. In fact, this gymnasium was the first in the United States to open a gymnastics school.
Dudley Allen Sargent, known as the founder of physical education, created several new pieces of gym equipment before retiring in 1919. It was Sargent who developed the Universal Test for Strength, Speed and Endurance and who encouraged females to exercise just as hard as their male counterparts (even though this wasn’t the popular view at the time).
Many celebrities have endorsed home gyms and their benefits over the years. Perhaps the most popular are Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley, who promote the Total Gym. There’s also Suzanne Somers with the ThighMaster/ButtMaster Toning System, Meghan Markle praising the Megaformer, Kate Hudson Instagraming the Booty Belt and Marie Osmond backing the BodyGym.
