Meet Britney El-Amin Founder of BEfit! [ADRI V’s Go Getta Of The Week]
Every Week I look to feature and interview a young mover and shaker who embodies the “Go Getta Spirit” and is doing great things for the people and themselves in the Western New York and Southern Ontario community. Having the the blessed opportunity of having my show “The Go Getta Mix” I look to use my platform to acknowledge those people nominated as “The Go Getta of The Week”.
Last weeks August 22, 2014 Go Getta Of The Week was Britney El-Amin!
Britney El-Amin is the CEO and founder of YCR incorporated division BEfit. With the slogan mind, body and soul her goal is to encourage her clients to be mentally, physically, and spiritually fit beginning with physical fitness. Through her own fitness journey she has learned things of value in each area that she now passionately shares with others.
Britney El-Amin was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Her “go-getta” mentality started at the age of 12. The struggles of being raised by a single mother served as her fire and desire to do more, and be more. She began working under the table as a paper route assistant, not yet old enough to get working papers she begged a woman who delivered papers on her street to help which became her first job. With the funds from delivering papers she purchased and paid her cell phone bill. It was the first time she experienced the fruits of her labor and she has not stopped since then.
Britney graduated from Cheektowaga Central high school in 2008 and from there from graduated bachelor’ in Social work. After graduating from college she gained a significant amount a weight and was faced with the choice to lose weight, or purchase an entirely new wardrobe. Unable to fit into anything and living on her own, she had no option but to lose weight. Through that process she became fluent in clean eating and working out. Soon after she began using Herbalife which enhanced her weight loss results. As she continued losing weight she noticed the changes in her energy level, confidence, and her overall self. People began to ask for her guidance and instruction and she shared her format. This was the beginning of BEfit: mind, body, soul as she calls it “social work with a healthy twist!”
She is currently:
