Marylin Monroe Working out
Workouts were a completely different thing back in the day, starting with the outfits.
In the Victorian era, it seems women exercised in their everyday clothes. That means they climbed onto equipment in full-length skirts, presumably with tightly-wound corsets beneath.

Then, of course, there was the equipment.
