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

The embassy has a very good gym as does the international school. There are others available around town, but I do not know their rates. - Nov 16, 2017
The (free) NEC has a small gym with cardio equipment, weights, machines, and yoga materials. CDC has a very small gym. There are local gyms - including at least one cross-fit studio - but they are on the expensive end, locally. A few folks run, as well (CLO has more information about that, as it's rewarding, but requires caution). - Jan 4, 2017
There is a nice gym at the Embassy. It's small but adequate. There are also other gyms around town that are bigger but I understand they are expensive. Some hotels offer the use of their gyms for a fee, and those seem to be a little cheaper. - Jun 8, 2016
Gyms are available (not sure of the cost) as well as tennis and golf clubs. The embassy has a very nice gym that is free to use if you are affiliated with the U.S. mission. - May 17, 2016
