This year, more and more Saudis are shedding their sedentary lifestyles in favor of more active ones as the Kingdom intensifies efforts to promote exercise and sports.

Whether it's taking up walking several times a week, joining weekly classes or clubs, or fully committing to the gym and sports, the trend is clear:

23 percent of Saudis now exercise more than once a week, a significant increase from the 13 percent reported in a 2015 survey.

This surpasses the Vision 2030 interim goal of having 20 percent of Saudis over the age of 15 exercising by 2020.

With an increasing number of Saudis, especially women, engaging in activities such as running, biking, and intense gym workouts, we've compiled a list of popular gyms in major cities:

The first thing you'll read on Z Club's website is “Leave the real world behind you,” and it’s easy to understand why.
