Fitness centers and public gyms have become increasingly popular destinations among Saudis more than ever. With the grand opening of the famous chain; Gold’s Gym, working out is “so in” right now- it is the new black.
Saudis have been living the same lifestyle for years; especially generation “Y”, from playing soccer to just driving around the city, it gets old after awhile. Therefore, a lot of guys are starting to become addicted with this new working out movement, they just want something different. The only issue that can face Saudi guys with working out is commitment, and you know how guys just want to get buff as soon as possible, and start benching 300 lb from the first day.
Two months will pass by and you check your self in front of the mirror and no progress, then your conscience will start telling you to forget about it. Guys will take supplements, even if it’s bird’s milk…they will just drink anything just to try to get bigger ASAP. Many people who work out will tell you that they do it to be healthy and to be in good shape. Well come on now….Saudis love attention and especially if it’s coming from the opposite sex. Any method that can boost confidence more and more, is always welcome. The workout journey comes to an end after joining a new club called marriage…then the fitness club membership will be gone with the wind.
