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

I think there's a gym in the embassy but I've never used it. - Dec 25, 2017
The embassy has a gym and CrossFit. There are CrossFit classes in the city too, along with an olympic pool, rock climbing, horseback riding, skiing, etc. In general they are not particularly expensive. You can pretty much find the facilities you are looking for. - Sep 26, 2017
