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

The Consulate has a small gym with the basics. It also hosts yoga, Zumba and Crossfit classes. There are gyms in the area that seem to be comparable prices to the US, including one that is walking distance from most of the housing. You could go to El Paso for specialty programs, but there are options in Juarez too. You can run/jog around the area near the housing, or go to Parque Central that has a nice perimeter path for walking, jogging or biking. - Jun 2019
