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

Many gyms in the area of each housing unit. Prices run about the same as a higher-end gym in the U.S. ($100/month) with similar quality. - Sep 27, 2017
Yes and they are shamelessly expensive, from what I understand. My residence had a full gym (FREE for government residents) so I could work out anytime. - Oct 24, 2010
Yes, everywhere and at every price depending on what you want - but not always co-ed - Jan 4, 2010
None at the Consulate for use and to join a health club is over 1k with payment in full up front. - Jan 3, 2010
Yes, for free in some buildings, at big-city prices in others. Expat neighborhoods also have independent gyms. - Dec 21, 2009
Yes, but they are expensive. The ones in the apartment complexes can easily run $1800+ a year per person. - Dec 3, 2009
