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

The Embassy has a nice gym and very nice swimming pool. There are a number of tennis and soccer clubs available as well. - Nov 29, 2017
If you work in the US Embassy, they have the best pool I have ever seen in any embassy! There is also a nice gym on the grounds. Hotels have small gym facilities and also nice big pools. And, of course, there is the Med, with its calm waters and shallow beach areas. - Nov 3, 2015
Yes. A few different local gyms out in town or at hotels. - Jul 29, 2013
Yes, but they are expensive, I think $100 per month -- and they aren't special. - Jun 21, 2013

The embassy gym is excellent. There are other gyms as well that are not bad. We ran outside a lot - especially along the American Cemetery road in La Marsa. - Jul 11, 2010
Yes. There are many, including the recreation center on the embassy grounds. - May 3, 2010
The embassy has a gym for American embassy employees. There are several local gyms as well. Additionally, there seems to be an increase of yoga and pilates classes at the school and people's homes lately. There's also a Hash group that runs/walks. - Jan 13, 2010
