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

There is a gym at the U.S. Embassy which is free for employees. - Oct 10, 2015
There are several gyms available at affordable costs. - Jun 29, 2015
In the private sector, yes, but they're generally expensive and limited in equipment offerings. - Aug 23, 2014
Yes. Two treadmills, two ellipticals, two bikes, weight machines, and many free weights are available at the Embassy gym. There's another gym at the edge of town that is small but very nice and clean. I believe you'll have to fork out US$80 a month for it though. - Jul 26, 2013
The embassy has a gym, and there are a few others around town that seem decent for about DC prices. As of recently there are Zumba classes. - May 21, 2013
Yes, there are several gym options, none as good as in the U.S., but not bad. Free weights, fitness classes, its all available but you will pay for it. The U.S. Embassy gym is surprisingly well equipped for such a small post. - Mar 2, 2013
There are a few commercial gyms and the U.S. Embassy has a decently equipped workout room. - Dec 29, 2011
