Moving to Riyadh in September!

Hello Everyone, I am a Canadian living in China. My husband and I decided to take a job in Riyadh for September! I am very excited for this new adventure. We will be staying in the housing provided by the school my husband works at. But since it's not a compound I would love to find one near by so I can go visit and be free to walk around. I also want to integrate myself in the local expat community and in social gatherings to meet new people. My questions now are: Can I go shopping and run errands on my own? OR does my husband need to be with me at all times when I leave my building?
Where can I find a really good grocery store? I'm looking for organic, vegetarian type of food.
Is there such thing as finding a personal trainer or yoga instructor?
And also I would love to find a driver someone to bring me during the day to do all my errands.
Thank you in advance for all the wonderful messages I have been receiving. I am finding out that there are so many nice people in Saudi willing to help us get settled :)
