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

The US embassy has a great gym, pool, running track, soccer field with personal trainers etc. We also do the FUSE program where you can take one hour to workout at the gym. Great idea for everyone to imitate. - Nov 22, 2017
The Embassy has amazing facilities: a pool, tennis courts, a decent gym, a jogging loop, soccer field, etc. There are cross fit and pilates studios nearby too. There are groups of cyclists and runners to join. Given the security situation, it's not advisable to do these activities on your own. - Jul 14, 2016
There are gyms all over. Even a few Crossfit gyms. The costs vary from about US$30 per month to... US$100? I think there are even US$10 a month gyms but I don't know the quality. There are also some sport clubs with more serious facilities (pools, tennis, etc.) - Jun 9, 2015
The Embassy has a gym, pool, two tennis courts, walking track, disk golf course and sports programs. There are also many gyms around the city that offer various classes (zumba, yoga, pilates). There is a large world gym just around the corner though I do not know the quality. - Mar 23, 2015
Yes the Embassy has a great gym, so do most of the apartment complexes, and there are tons of gyms and yoga studios in the city. - Oct 29, 2014
Yes. At the embassy there are many workout facilities (tennis courts, walking trail, swimming pool, gym, etc.). - Jul 8, 2014
I've seen a few dark and dreary places operating out of old mechanics shops. - Apr 28, 2012
There are some gyms in town and yoga studios. - Jul 15, 2011
There is a gym at the embassy. There is also a Gold's Gym around the corner, a Curves nearby, and several karate, yoga, and Pilates studios. - May 21, 2010
Many gyms throughout the city. If you're with the Embassy I think you can use the gym at the Hilton hotel free of charge. The Embassy also has a gym facility for employees. World Gym is in a very nice neighborhood and a lot of people like that. - Feb 28, 2009
