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

I use the Embassy's gym. We also have a pool on compound, and the Marines just got a basketball court. Camp Lemonnier has a wide array of aerobic and sporting activities (CrossFit, salsa dancing, soccer, flag football, softball, basketball, beach volleyball, table tennis, foosball, swimming, and monthly 5K's) and they are building a massive gym to replace their current one, which is under a huge tent. All these activities are free. I haven't seen any local gyms, but I heard about one located near the Port/Corniche. - Jun 14, 2016
I only know about the one at the Embassy and it's not bad. Not large but not bad. - Aug 14, 2015
Yes. - Feb 28, 2013
The embassy has a small gym. Camp Lemonnier has a very large gym that U.S. Embassy people are allowed to use. - Apr 13, 2010
