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

There is a small embassy gym, but no one uses it. There is a gym at Genesis hospital that has a couple of ellipticals and some weight machines. It is not air-conditioned and you will have to bring your own WD-40 to get some of the machines working. There is a boxing/jiu-jitsu/Zumba gym. It is not air-conditioned and it looks like it could fall down at any moment. Bring your own toilet paper and soap. - Jul 2021

There are some gyms, and regular zumba classes. Gyms are not air conditioned. Outdoor swimming pool is nice enough, but not always open when it says it is, and it's next to a piggery, so sometimes it smells bad. - Mar 2020

There are no gyms in the country. - Feb 2013
