Mus­cat - An all-Omani women-owned and man­aged fit­ness cen­tre called ‘Let’s Evolve Stu­dio’, opened its doors in Mus­cat on Omani Women’s Day, mak­ing it the first of its kind in the coun­try.

The stu­dio, which is run by three cit­i­zens, aims to “sup­port and em­power women in be­com­ing the best ver­sions of them­selves”.

Ac­cord­ing to 28 year old founder Adhra al Yahyai, it was her own per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence as a trainer that in­spired her to start the project.

“Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced first­hand - as an Omani woman ath­lete and trainer - the chal­lenges women face when en­ter­ing the health and fit­ness in­dus­try, I thought what bet­ter way to shed light on this is­sue, than through em­pha­sis­ing the im­por­tance of an Omani women-only team. That is pre­cisely what I have gone ahead and en­sured. We have all-Omani women staff, at ev­ery level of Let’s Evolve Stu­dio,” she said.

The women’s-only stu­dio offers a range of classes from Zumba and body at­tack to yoga and car­dio plus re­sis­tance. Pri­vate ses­sions and per­sonal train­ing are also of­fered.
