Gymnasium Charlie X

The gymnasium aboard the USS Enterprise

A gymnasium is an area of a starship which is dedicated to physical fitness and exercise. The gymnasium on board an NX-class starship was located on C Deck. It featured a number of items that could be used for the fitness of the crew, including exercise bikes, treadmills and weights. (ENT: "Bound", "A Night in Sickbay", "Stigma")

In 2154, the senior staff of Enterprise (with the exclusion of Commander T'Pol) played a game of basketball in that starship's gymnasium. (ENT: "The Forge")

Later the same year, Ensign Travis Mayweather, Lieutenant Malcolm Reed and two other officers used Enterprise's gymnasium to train, in an attempt to keep their minds off of three Orion slave girls who were guests aboard Enterprise. (ENT: "Bound")

In 2266, Charles Evans visited the gymnasium of the Constitution-class starship USS Enterprise. While there, he exhibited extremely powerful abilities when he caused the disappearance of an Enterprise crew member called Sam. (TOS: "Charlie X")

Enterprise-D fencing room, 2368

Galaxy-class fencing room

The gymnasium on board the Galaxy-class starship USS Enterprise-D was located on Deck 12. In addition to aerobic studios (TNG: "The Price") and martial arts areas, (TNG: "Clues", "Second Chances") there was also a parrises squares area, (TNG: "Second Chances") a zero gravity area, (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint") and an anbo-jytsu court. (TNG: "The Icarus Factor") The starship's gymnasium also featured a fencing room, where Captain Jean-Luc Picard often fenced with members of his crew. (TNG: "We'll Always Have Paris", "I Borg")

In early 2371, Lieutenant Walter Baxter reported to sickbay aboard the USS Voyager after injuring himself while exercising in that starship's gymnasium. (VOY: "Eye of the Needle")

Later that year, Baxter was exercising in the gymnasium again when he realized that the environmental controls were malfunctioning and the temperature had dropped to below 10 °C. This was discovered to have happened as a result of Voyager's encounter with a spatial distortion. (VOY: "Twisted")

In "Charlie X", the ship's gymnasium, seen only in that episode, was a redress of the engineering set. A room where gymnasts are shown tumbling, in the same episode, was the redecorated briefing room.
The set used as the Galaxy-class gymnasium in Star Trek: The Next Generation was one of the last sets built for the series and was also used as the cargo bays, shuttlebays and holodecks of the same class. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion 3rd ed., p. 10)
In Star Trek: Enterprise, the gymnasium was a redress of the launch bay set.
