JEDDAH (RAHNUMA) Nearly 4 million people across the Kingdom have been engaging with the digital national health and wellness campaign launched by the Saudi Sports for All Federation (SFA) by sharing their daily workouts from home.
Launched in mid-March, the campaign — titled “Your Home, Your Gym” — encourages people to embrace a healthy lifestyle in a spirit of unity while under lockdown.
Supported by the Ministry of Sports and the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee, the initiative is collaborating with five trainers from various athletic disciplines: Najia Alfadl, Fahad Alsahli, Abdullah Falatah, Aya Alduhaiman and Ahmad Almosabi.
The trainers will post diverse coaching material on social media, including CrossFit, interval training, aerobics, strength training and yoga.
They will also connect with the audience on their social media platforms to promote the campaign’s goals. Saudis and non-Saudis of all ages are participating.
SFA President Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed praised the public’s significant interaction with the campaign, saying: “We are overwhelmed with pride and warmth at seeing your engagement on our social platforms.”
He added that the initiative is about “staying home safe and active, supporting one another as part of Saudi’s healthy and active community, reaching one another to share positivity and strength and finally doing our national duty.”
Prince Khaled invited people to tag the SFA in their home workouts and use the campaign’s Arabic hashtag to motivate others to join the campaign.
