Saudi fitness company Leejam has announced the opening of a new 3000 sqm women’s fitness centre in Jeddah, bringing the total number of gyms it operates to 134.

In a statement to the Saudi Stock Exchange Tadawul, the company said the financial impact of the new Fitness Time – Ladies, in Al Samer District, Jeddah, would be seen in the third quarter of 2020.

Further announcements about more new centres will be made in the coming weeks, the company said.

Leejam, which operates gyms in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, announced that it was developing women-only gyms in the kingdom after the government issued the first licences for women’s fitness facilities in 2017.
