Amina's mission as a health advocate began after her own 60-pound weight loss journey. When she found herself overweight, like many other women, she became frustrated with not finding a weight-loss solution that felt right for her or were culturally-sensitive.
Amina started Amanah Fitness in 2014 to share her message that fitness is for everyone of all cultural backgrounds, regardless of how you dress or look! In a global climate of division due to race, religion and as Amina personally experienced, misunderstandings over her headscarf as a Muslim woman, Amina believes that fitness can unite and bring us all together! Amina hopes she can serve as a role model to encourage diversity and inclusion within the fitness industry.
Amina's popular 30-Day Amanah Fitness Bootcamp Weight Loss Fitness Program has inspired hundreds of women from diverse cultural backgrounds around the world to begin exercising at home. To address the growing need for culturally-sensitive health information, Amina spearheaded a collabrative initiative with medical and nutrition professionals across Canada to create RamadanReset.com, a comprehensive source for evidence-based fasting fitness & nutrition guidance.
Today, Amanah Fitness is one of the largest faith-based online Muslim fitness communities! Amina has received accolades such as being acknowledged as Canada's Top Fitness Professional of the Year in recognition of her global impact on health education. Our team has grown to 6 dedicated members who are passionate about bridging the gap between culture and fitness education. Amanah Fitness provides culturally-sensitive no-excuse solutions to fitness to help everyone start a healthy active lifestyle. Because fitness is for everyone!
