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

Both neighborhoods have gyms. They are both nice. It's free if you live here. - Jul 2019


Star has a great gym with sauna. The Shangri-La mall opened an amazing gym next to Star with a swimming pool but the price is a bit through the roof and unrealistic for Mongolia (around US$200 per month). There is also a new Gold's Gym close-by with similar high prices. I take yoga classes with a fantastic instructor and pay about US$10 for each session. - Oct 2016
