Every woman is entitled to living a healthy lifestyle no matter their religion. Of course one of the main steps is exercising. Some religions require women to be covered from head to toe when they leave their homes and/or around men out of respect for their husbands. All-women gyms, girls-only walking/running groups and female-only swimming groups have been formed to help accommodate those who are eager to exercise. The gender segregation creates comfort in their workout environment. However, exercising in layers can be quite a challenge and uncomfortable. Fortunately, some designers have come up with gear that can help women avoid those issues and not expose any part of their body that should not be shown. Being limited to a certain gym or feeling as if joining an all women group is an only option is no longer the case ladies! This fashionable sportswear is super affordable and can be brought online.

Sites such as Mu’mine Activewear, Haya Islamic Clothing and Friniggi Muslim Sportswear offers light-weight modest sportswear that provides the room needed for movement. No one should ever feel restricted from participating in sports or daily workouts because of their commitment to their faith. Indeed, we believe such commitment is very important but it doesn’t have to be the roadblock to fitness. Emirati ice skater Zahra Lari proves that respect and love can go towards both religion and personal interest in an active activity.
