What kinds of gyms or other sports/workout facilities are available? Are they expensive?

There is a gym, basketball court, tennis court, and swimming pool at the Embassy/CMR (across the street). There are one or two women-only gyms in Algiers that offer classes. Not sure of the cost. - Jun 9, 2016
I am not aware of gyms outside the Embassy. - Mar 15, 2014
The embassy has one, free. - Oct 25, 2013
There are few gyms or workout facilities. That said, the city is very hilly, so if you are a jogger or runner, you may find running in the city very challenging. - Dec 18, 2011
