There's also a proposed tag amenity=fitness_center:

It has several variants:
* amenity=fitness_center (61 uses)
* leisure=fitness_center (18 uses)
* amenity=fitness_centre (17 uses)
* leisure=fitness_centre (39 uses)

Despite being used even less frequently than the older amenity=gym, it
might be less ambiguous (as far as I can tell). For example, Wikipedia
uses "gym" primarily for the "other" meaning.

We would need to standardize on one of the variants, though.
