200 Burka Babes Take On Fitness Gym

About 200 Muslim women have asked the Fitness USA workout chain to honor what they say was its promise to provide separate exercise times for women and men. They say they need single-sex workout times to accommodate Islam's standards of modesty.

Arrwa Mogalli, 28, of Dearborn, Michigan, said that she agreed to buy a $1,465 lifetime membership with the chain after being promised that its Lincoln Park facility would be open only to women on certain days.

This month, the gym in this southern Detroit suburb decided to open up a new part of the center to both sexes every day.

Mogalli is among about 200 women with Fitness USA memberships who have signed a petition asking the chain to restore single-sex exercise days for the entire gym or to put up a divider so men and women cannot see each other while exercising.

The company is reviewing the women's concerns, said Jodi Berry, administrative director for Fitness USA. But the company said that the women's written contracts say nothing about gender.

And this is their main site.

Wild Thing's comment....

Sure CAIR praised the decision, they are terrorists huggers.

I guess to be literal it does say they have seperated areas. But by gosh oh golly I guess I just will never understand this get undressed in the closet mentality no matter what so called religion it is.

Why are we accomodating these idiots? Just more Moooooooslim appeasement... instead of having them assimilating to western society our country kisses their burka butts.

I belong to Gold's gym, but aren't there workout places around like Curves etc. that are just for women only.
Don't the veils, towels on their heads and masks get in the way of exercising? If they don't like the facilities why don't they open their own bloody gym and run it any way they like?

Prices, location, management, the gym's design, the gym's equipment, hours, etc., etc., all may change without notice. This is how capitalism has always worked. They need to go back home where their way of doing things has perpetually kept them locked up in the 7th Century.


Give him an inch and he wants a foot.
Give him an foot and he wants a yard.
Give him a yard and he wants a pool in it.

Why do they want to work out anyway, the ugly pigs.

Common sense(Western civ) says, buy your own fucking gym.

Expect that numbnuts Tony Little to show up in a headscarf with his Leg-O-Sizer. That guy will do anything for money.

Tom yes, I thought it was weird. Even if they have a seperate area only for women, the guys could still open the door if they wanted to.

Do you think they'd be pissed if we mooned them while they were leaving the club? Set up a food vendor out front that sells light beer, pulled pork and baked beans with bacon only, and have it staffed by girls in thongs. Being outside Detroit you'd also have to have Eminem blaring in the background. Maybe then they'd decide to stay home with the Ab-Lounger.

Tincan Sailor you are so right. They just can't stop complaining about stuff. They make NO attempt at all to work themselves into our society we are supposed to take up theirs. No way jose!
