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

The Consulate has a small gym. There are bigger private gyms around that are inexpensive. - Aug 7, 2017
There are more and more gyms opening up. Some are very fancy and expensive because gyms are new and considered a luxury service. There is a Crossfit box here with a good community. - May 18, 2016
The Consulate has a very small but functional gym. There are private gyms all over the city but for runners seeking to avoid the pollution outdoors, these gyms often offer little relief. People in Chengdu tend to leave windows open year round to let in the "healthy air." - Aug 2, 2013
Yes, they are getting better, but the air quality in them remains a problem. - May 4, 2013
