This is not a gym where you lift weights and do cardio. That would be a 헬스장. 체육관 is a school gym where you play basket/volley/indoor football etc.

Gymnasion plural gymnasia? https://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EA%B9%80%EB%82%98%EC%8B%9C%EC%98%A8 I still thinks it makes more sense when you see their heavy armour and bulky clothes, more with the sense of unencumbered than our "naked".
