Burjeel Holdings, a private healthcare service provider in the MENA region, and Leejam Sports Company, owner of Fitness Time — the largest chain of fitness centers in the Middle East — have jointly launched four “PhysioTherabia” centers in Riyadh. This first-of-its-kind network of state-of-the-art physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and wellness centers in Saudi Arabia will offer the region’s most innovative and comprehensive physical therapy, advanced rehabilitation, and sports performance services.
The newly launched PhysioTherabia centers located in Riyadh’s Olaya View Fitness Time, Al-Munsiyah Men’s Gym, Al-Munsiyah Ladies Gym, and Al-Taawon Men’s Gym, are the first four of the 60 centers to be established within and outside of Leejam Sports’ gyms across the Kingdom.
In addition to the newly opened centers, the next 16 centers are scheduled to launch soon. These centers will be strategically distributed across key locations, including 10 in Riyadh, two in Jeddah, and one each in Dammam, Alkhobar, the northern region and southern region.
Prior to the launch, Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz, governor of Riyadh region, received Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, founder and chairman of Burjeel Holdings; Abdulmohsen Al-Ashry, regional CEO of Burjeel Holdings; and other senior officials of the group. During their meeting, Dr. Vayalil offered comprehensive insights into the centers’ high-quality services, cutting-edge medical equipment, and exceptional clinical expertise.
“As healthcare leaders in the region, our mission is to empower individuals to unlock their full potential and transform their lives. Through PhysioTherabia, we aspire to carve a niche in delivering advanced physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and wellness services,” said Al-Ashry. He added: “By launching our centers in the Kingdom, we look forward to supporting its vision of becoming a global sports hub. We are dedicating all resources and capabilities to establishing these centers as a regional benchmark.”
Prince Faisal expressed appreciation for these efforts and emphasized the importance of delivering the services at the highest possible standards.
PhysioTherabia centers aim to provide greater accessibility for people seeking a holistic approach to fitness and recovery.
Each center will offer a wide range of advanced services, including personalized assessments, customized physical therapy programs, and advanced sports performance training.
Shadan Alsagri, deputy CEO of Leejam Sports Company, said: “The launch of the physiotherapy centers is a major step in consolidating the Kingdom’s position as a leading global center for advanced physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and wellness services.”
She added: “These centers will be staffed by highly skilled, leading healthcare professionals to provide evidence-based therapeutic services to individuals of all ages and groups.”
PhysioTherabia brings together a world-class, highly trained team of professionals committed to optimizing physical health, strength, and functionality, including recovery from injury, weight management, chronic conditions management, and enhancement of athletic performance.
PhysioTherabia’s unique gym-based physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and wellness model supports efforts to integrate Saudi Arabia into the Exercise is Medicine global health initiative managed by the American College of Sports Medicine.
In August 2022, Burjeel announced the signing of an MoU with Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Investment. The agreement will see the group invest up to $1 billion in Saudi Arabia by 2030. Burjeel is exploring several capex-light options to expand its presence in the Kingdom through joint ventures, and operations and management services.
