Amal Baatia, a Saudi CrossFit and calisthenics coach in Jeddah, has been a role model, encouraging women in Saudi Arabia to engage in fitness activities and a healthier lifestyle.
Baatia, who had a full-time job working as an investment manager and a proud mom of two, got into fitness training two years ago, after discovering it in Dubai. She has been devoted to sports activities since then.
“I started my career two years ago and I faced many challenges since there were no CrossFit facilities in Saudi Arabia. I had to travel to Dubai most of the time, and to the US as well, in order to learn and practice this type of sport and gain more experience,” Baatia said in an interview with Okaz Daily.
“I was an investment manager, and I had to attend my full-time job every morning. Moreover, I am a mother of two children. However, with God’s will, I somehow was able to cope with my new lifestyle,” she said. She managed to fulfill her duties as an employee and a mother, and she did not stop practicing her favorite sport activities.

As for her achievements, last year, she participated in the 5-km obstacle course race in Kuwait and ranked third with a time of 28 minutes. She also participated in the 12-km running race that took place at King Abdullah City and came in 2nd.
“Nowadays, I am fully devoted to sports as I have left my job as an investment manager,” she said, explaining that she now has more free time to train and reach more achievements in the future.

Getting out of our comfort zone and start Attacking Our Weaknesses is a tough decision indeed !! As we all like to be comfortable and feeling good about what we excel in. The feeling when you start with something you know you’re strong at to build confidence and make the workout more enjoyable. But eventually you will need to overcome your fear and start working on your weaknesses , it's not easy , getting Frustrating every time you fail ,leading to you wanting to just skip the whole thing and stick to just what you are good at . You should always remind yourself that with each rep you perform or each step you make, you’re improving slightly and will eventually lead you to your overall improvement and strength that you won't feel during you journey, and then u will start to appreciate every step and rep u tried to do to reach your goal#handstandpushups #jackknifehandstandpushups #lsithold #dips #gripstrength #falsegrip #gymnasitcs #crossfit #strongsaudiwomen #fitmom #amalbfitness #jeddahfitness #dubaifitness #jeddah #saudiarabia

Regarding CrossFit in Saudi Arabia, she said that things have become much easier now as health club licenses are being granted by the authorities and more sports facility openings are looming on the horizon in several regions. “We started to develop a sense of awareness regarding physical training, and with God’s will, we will have greater skills in Saudi Arabia, and we will compete against other people from different regions and countries in the world,” Baatia said.
“I want Saudi women to know that there is nothing to strike fear into their hearts,” she said, adding, “my target is to allay this fear. I believe we can do whatever we long to. We can go to work, take care of our children and live our life normally.”

 

So go ahead. Fall down. The world looks different from the ground. #amalbfitness

She explained that she is an ordinary woman who does not differ from all the others: “Every single woman has a particular skill that should be refined. Any Saudi woman can do what I did if she overcomes her fears.”


Baatia said that would like to pursue her career as a CrossFit and calisthenics coach and enhance her skills in sports activities.
“I am looking forward to seeing a new Saudi generation full of ambitions and resilience, a Saudi generation that will be at the top of the Olympic games all around the world,” she concluded.
