List of 11 Gyms and Sports Clubs for Women in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

A large population of Saudi Arabia is dealing with the problem of obesity. The criteria of establishing obesity are the weight of a person more than the maximum weight he should have according to his height. Although there are so many sports clubs and gyms in Saudi Arabia but most of them are exclusive for men. Men and women are not allowed to exercise under the same roof. There needs to be a separate sports club or gym for women. Considering the problem that women cannot drive in Saudi Arabia, movement of women is very difficult. So, there are very few sports clubs or gyms for women in Saudi Arabia. I am listing down some sports clubs and gyms in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
