Girls doing Gymnastics in Charlestown High School, Boston, 1893

Gymnastics and hygiene training was introduced into school curriculums as early as the 1820s, but physical education did not become a formal requirement until after the Civil War.

Here are some historical photos that show women girls practicing gymnastics in Charlestown High School, Boston, 1893. The exercise equipment used by high school girls in these photos looks remarkably similar to what is available in gyms today, although fitness fashion has changed immensely.
