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

The Embassy has a small gym. There are numerous city gyms with cheap fees and good equipment. None have childcare as an option, for those moms who are wondering :). When the weather is good (April-October), there are numerous paths for running, walking and cycling, depending on where you live. - Apr 8, 2016
The Embassy has a small gym that employees/family members can use for free. There are a number of other workout places around town. - Aug 5, 2014
The Embassy has an okay gym (the basics). There are MANY gyms in the area but they tend to have strange hours of operation and close for part, if not all, of the summer. There is a BIG MMA culture here so they are a TON of MMA or boxing gyms. So if you like to fight, you're in the right place. Just ask the local guards at the Embassy and they will be more than willing to take you to one and show you around. - Feb 18, 2014
