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

The gym at the consulate is being redone, once that is complete it should surpass the Siedlung gym. The Siedlung gym is fine - tons of cardio and lifting. Also, several EFM's and employees host onsite classes like Zumba, Pilates, yoga, martial arts, etc. - Sep 27, 2017
They are available but not cheap. - Jan 28, 2017
There's a tiny gym in the consulate, a medium sized gym on the housing compound, and any number of options on the economy. - Aug 14, 2016
The consulate has a workout facility. Don't know about cost. - Feb 1, 2016
Tiny gym in the Consulate building (free), decent size gym in the Siedlung Community (very reasonable) and many private gyms in the community. - Dec 9, 2015
There is a perfectly adequate gym in the housing complex that his relatively inexpensive. There are loads and loads of public pools as well. - Mar 30, 2014
The Consulate has a small gym. There is also a gym on the housing compound which requires a membership. - Nov 7, 2013
Yes. - Apr 4, 2012
Yes, cheap and on the apartment complex where everyone lives. - Mar 4, 2012
Yes. The Consulate housing compound has one, and the equipment (especially the tread mills) isn't that great; however, it's convenient. I have friends that go to gyms downtown, and they seem happy with them. - Oct 3, 2011
There is a small, rundown gym on the compound. It's affordable. Any on the local economy cost too much though. - Jul 15, 2010
