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

Several gyms. Two 50-meter pools, both kind of run-down and Soviet in their operation, but usable. Also a couple ice rinks, including a major speed-skating stadium with a speed-skating track and two hockey rinks open to public skating (and the staff were really nice to us Americans). - Oct 19, 2017
There are quite a few gyms that offer a host of different exercise regimens, equipment and personal training. The number is growing every day. Indoor swimming pools are few and far between. During the winter, there are several ice rinks that offer public skating. - Oct 7, 2016
There are gyms and we have not looked into the costs because we have equipment at home, as well as my husband's workplace. - Jun 18, 2014
