Vince's Gym was an establishment on the Promenade of space station Deep Space 9. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine set decoration)

This was listed on a directory graphic on the Promenade created by the art department, and is a reference to the legendary Vince's Gym, which used to be on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, California. Vince's was established in 1948 by Vince Gironda, the "Iron Guru", near the Universal City Studios and was popular with stars and other Hollywood denizens. Vince's Gym closed shortly before its founder's death in November, 1997; Vince Gironda was just three weeks shy of 80 when he died.
Doug Drexler was a member of Vince's Gym for twelve years, and this was his homage to Vince.
