After their Sahel Takeover this summer, Egypt’s first pop-up gym, Core, is now in Sheikh Zayed's Walk of Cairo (WOC) as a “studio edition” until they officially open their main facility in December. They will also be opening two other branches in New Cairo and Zamalek in January.

Popping up at Beachouse By Sass in Ghazala Bay last summer, Core gave fitsos the chance to train with a sea-view and in fresh salty air to upgrade their daily workout experience. 


Core aims to revolutionize and adopt the concept of luxurious hospitality in the fitness industry. They take pride in being the first entity giving equal priority to mind, body and soul through the various classes they offer. The current edition consists of two studios; Studio A for Functional Strength and Conditioning and Studio B for Yoga, Pilates and Flexibility.

Resident coaches include Head Coach Omar Attiyah and Shahir Mekawi for Functional Training, Alia Sherif and Nina Kabbani for Core and Vinyasa Yoga. Khaled Amin will be responsible for Calisthenics, Hany Emam for Master Training in RealRyder and Noha Al Rayan for kickboxing. Habiba El Tamawy and Aya Khaled will also be giving Functional Training classes and Nada Bebbars and Ingy Noury will be giving rotational yoga classes.

Core is just Kun Sports’ first brand in Egypt. Kun Sports is a growing, vibrant and privately owned Saudi sports and fitness company with branches in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UK that operates and invests in different sectors within the fitness industry. Aiming to start a certified, international academy in Egypt to train fitness coaches to the highest caliber, Kun will also launch another neighborhood-gym-like concept targeting the mass in ten locations around Cairo. Not only that, they also vouch to open a boutique holistic wellness retreat, hosting those wanting to detox, lose weight or improve their nutrition, and will launch an investment arm in distributing gym and fitness equipment, allowing them to cater to all aspects of the fitness industry.
