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

There are gyms and pools, I have not been to them. There are a few yoga classes that are popular with expats too. - Sep 3, 2017
There is a UN gym with a pool, reasonably priced and near the Ambassador's residence. The Embassy has a gym, pool, tennis court also. There are tennis courts in several places around town and you can hire trainers to teach you or play with you. There is a golf club on the beach in Freetown which also provides Pro's to teach you or play with you. - Sep 9, 2014
Nope. The Embassy has one with lots of weights but the machines are broken. We have a half-court basketball hoop, a tennis court, and a small gym on compound. - Jun 19, 2014
The embassy has a full gym. - Sep 16, 2010
