“Phenomenal Women”, a newly established fitness, nutrition and care centre for women in The Gambia was officially launched on Friday at the Bertil Harding Highway, opposite Kotu Hospital.

Fatima Jallow, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fatima & Co public relations firm (organizer of the launching ceremony) revealed that the centre focuses on women particularly on fitness, nutrition and care.

According to her, the centre offers women in The Gambia a safe environment and would as well offer services to women such as yogo, zumba, aerobics/cardio exercise, kid’s zumba classes, beauty salon, steps/TRX workout, massage/jacuzzi/steam, kids play area (nanny services) and nutrition classes.

 Laila Traboulsi, said the center is a product of a discussion between her and Phenomenal Women CEO Fatou Njie on a safe environment where one can exercise and receive trainings on their wellbeing.

“We were chatting on a safe environment where women can put on their sport gears, a place exclusively for women. Women have so much to offer but are not given the opportunity to prove themselves. Our work here is not only to exercise and offer nutrition and care services, but also to help women and young ladies unleash their potentials.”

Ms Traboulsi encouraged women to take advantage of the opportunity by coming to the centre and making use of its services.

On her part, Fatou Njie, CEO of Phenomenal Women Centre said she has travelled to many countries and has discovered that most countries have similar centres for women, but not in The Gambia.

“Other countries have centres like this where women exercise and are taught how to take good care of themselves, their children and their families in general. We need such in the Gambia and that is where the idea came from. We are the mothers, and we are the ones who give birth to the presidents, ministers and all. Women are the foundation of a better country and a better world,” she said.

She said the centre has a safe and conducive environment for women to exercise and discuss their challenges with workable solutions.

Jean Francois Normand, husband and partner of Ms Fatou Njie thanked all those who had been working with them to realize the establishment of the centre, noting that his wife always thought about her fellow women and had always been trying to do something to make women in the Gambia feel confident, healthy and good looking.

Saliou Taal, President of the Gambia Bar Association praised Ms Fatou Njie, her husband and all those who contributed towards the realization of the establishment of the centre.

“Fatu Njie always wants to bring to the Gambia the best she has seen in other countries. This centre has the high standards you can find in other parts of the world. I believe this is a showcase of love and passion for this nation because if it is about money Fatou and her husband would have invested in real estate and other stuffs,” he said.

Mr. Taal went on to assure that he will encourage his wife to visit the centre regularly, calling on other men to allow and encourage their wives and sisters to take advantage of such.
