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

Most people who live in apartments have access to gyms in their buildings. There are also public gyms - I think Futeca is the nicest - and a surprisingly active running culture that organizes group training runs, weekly races all over the country, etc. You can also take tennis classes from internationally competitive players for US$10-15/lesson. - Jun 7, 2015
Most apartment buildings have gyms, hot tubs, and pools. There's a tiny gym at the Embassy. Futeca is another option. Not sure of the price. - Apr 23, 2014
Yes. Most upscale apartment buildings have well equipped gyms themselves, and for the workout aficionados there are some good options like Futeca Sport Gym and World Gym. Costs are moderate. - Jan 3, 2014
Yes, there a number of gyms and athletic clubs. It all depends on what you want to pay. - Nov 7, 2011
Futeca Sport in Zone 14. Scandinavian Gyms are pretty good, too. Since there is not a lot going on in the city, going to the gym is one of the more interesting things to do. - May 2, 2010
