HI Step0 you will be surprised to find all those facilities in Gulu.There are a few good Indian supermarkets that are well stocked and barbers you can find too.

I doubt that you will find an aerobics class but there are many NGO's upthere and you can probably get a bike from one of the expats there

Enjoy yourself

Well , you will find gyms but you may not go there because they are not first class gyms . Keep fit facilities like Bicycles , tread mills and aerobics are rare to find .

However , choose the best hotel there , chances are that you may find some of the facilities. If you are a bicycle rider ,you should buy your own bicycle which you can use for transportation as well as a sport .

What I did in Lira when I was there and wanted to ride a bike was to hire one from one of the boda-boda operators. It took me a while to convince I only wanted to ride it myself for a few hours and not hire him aswell to ride me around town.

There is at least one bike shop in town it would be possible to pick up a chinese made bike for about £45.
