“Infidels, your western style free political system empowers your women to take control over their lives, which allows them (if they so desire) to be as pyhsically fit and attractive as humanly possible. This of course runs counter to Islam and so we have to crack down on them. Men however, are free to exercise, that is their right as males, but not our women folk. Besides, they get all the exercise they need in wearing their heavy black bags in the hot desert sun. Salaam.”

RIYADH — Health authorities in Jeddah have shut down an “illegal” women’s fitness centre attached to a hospital, closing one of the few venues where Saudi women are able to exercise, local media said on Wednesday.
Although health officials have repeatedly blamed the high rates of heart disease and diabetes in the kingdom on poor diets and lack of exercise, health authorities said women’s fitness centres were not allowed.
“Anyone who violates regulations governing the running of health facilities would be punished severely because this involves people’s health,” Jeddah health official Muhammed Abdul Jawad told the English-language Arab News.
The reports did not identify the Jeddah hospital affected, but a photograph in the Saudi Gazette showed an official sealing the club door with an announcement reading “Closed on the order of Jeddah Health Affairs.”
