Tone up at our Queen Mary fitness center, featuring state-of-the-art equipment and paying tribute to the past with a replica of the gym that was aboard the ship during its transatlantic voyages. Our Queen Mary Fitness Center is open 24 hours a day and is located midship between the M Deck and A Deck (MAP). The gym features brand new cardio equipment - treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes - as well free weights and muscle workout equipment supplied by TechnoGym.
The original First Class Gymnasium was located at the port side of Sun Deck and measured 36’ x 20’ x 11.’ The walls were shaded by the use of seven different timbers placed in horizontal bands and ranging from dark American walnut at the base with gradual lighting shades of Australian walnut, French walnut, teak, Australian oak and British oak to light ash for the topmost course.
The various bandings were separated by narrow sections of silver-bronze metal, which enhanced the horizontal treatment. The floor was laid with black and white marbleized squares of Korkoid creating a checker-board design.
On display at the new fitness center are original pieces from the First Class Gym:
In the Starboard display:
- Belt Vibrator Machine
- Horse Riding Machine
- Fitness and Stretching Rack
In the Port side display:
- The Exercise Cycle Machine including the Speedometer (originally there were two cycles)
- Wrist Exerciser
- Boxing Gloves
- Large Scale
The original exercise equipment was supplied by Messrs. Spencer, Heath & George, Ltd., of London.
