Our programs focus on providing tools for women and families to improve their health. We emphasize holistic health by offering seminars on physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our participants exercise regularly and encourage one another in a fun, safe environment. We’ve seen how healthy habits can spread beyond the walls of our buildings and transform the lives of our participants.
When you walk into the fitness area on the top floor of the Life Center, you sense the energy and trusting community that is at the heart of World Associates’ wellness program for women. WellFit Women provides a safe, nurturing environment for women of all socio-economic backgrounds in Aqaba to learn and practice healthful lifestyles.
Many of the women in our city face significant social constraints, have limited access to healthy social interaction and little understanding of how to live healthful lives. Many also suffer from depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, vitamin deficiency, and obesity. Women experiencing these health issues are often unaware of how to obtain relief.
Since 2006, WellFit Women has addressed these needs by providing affordable, high-quality wellness care for underserved women. We build deep relationships with the women of our city and help them develop honest and trusting relationships with each other. Through this supportive community, we encourage and empower women in healthy lifestyles, physical activities, proper nutrition and soul care through our exercise and fitness classes, discussion groups, monthly workshop sessions and activities.
Please note that the WellFit program in Aqaba is temporarily on hold to allow for modifications that will take effect starting next year.
Refresh women’s gym is a fitness club that provides low income women with fitness classes and women’s health related educational discussions. The goal of Refresh is to encourage women to take care of themselves and each other through fun and motivating fitness classes and then coffee time where relevant issues are studied and discussed. Ladies find themselves in deep, affirming relationships with their instructors and participants, tears are shed and hearts are lifted up from dark situations to hope and help.
Thanks to Refresh many women who came from Syria in the night, fleeing from the situation that they faced, have received help, instruction, encouragement, and education to help better their lives and the lives of their families.
