Kirk exercises

Kirk using the exercise table

An exercise table was an apparatus in sickbay of the Constitution-class USS Enterprise. It was used in conjunction with a pair of foot pedals which were above it. To test the vital signs of a patient during exercise, the patient lay on the table and pumped the pedals; a body function panel monitored the patient's readings. A person could take this test while wearing a shirt or while topless.

In 2266, James T. Kirk used this table under the supervision of Doctor McCoy while undergoing his physical. Kirk was thankful when the exercise was over. (TOS: "The Corbomite Maneuver")

Shortly after arriving aboard the Enterprise that year, Charles Evans used the exercise table. As a result, Dr. McCoy saw that Evans was "four-oh, 100%, sound of wind and limb." (TOS: "Charlie X")

In 2269, while inhabiting Kirk's body, Janice Lester used this apparatus. McCoy, unaware of Lester's transferred consciousness, told "Kirk" that his heart would last forever. (TOS: "Turnabout Intruder")

The term "exercise table" comes from the final draft script of "Charlie X".
