Leisure is better than sport. Personally I don't consider going to a
fitness center a sport. Amenity is the only other  real option but it is
overloaded. And as you said, fitness centers is a leisure time actively for
most of us.

I wonder how we can tag fitness center attributes, such as pool, steam,
sauna/ etc. They very all over the place. Being able do documenting
features would allow "health clubs" sites to be included.

Also, please excuse the US version of centre.
