CEO of Powerhouse Physiques,LLC., Master Trainer, Motivational Speaker, Creator of the Powerhouse Physiques DVD series, Zeta, and mother of twin boys, Anowa is setting the bar high for overachievers! Known to many as “The Nigerian Powerhouse” or “The First Full-Figured-Fitness Phenomenon, Anowa has set her sight on breaking numerous barriers in the industry.
“Anowa”was born Enewan Adjah in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, New York. Descendant of Nigerian parents and kin to 2 sisters and 1 brother, Anowa was raised with high expectations.
In an effort to present a more thriving environment for Anowa and her siblings, her parents moved to Piscataway, New Jersey. Unfortunately the transition between the city and suburbs was difficult. Anowa was teased in school for her muscular frame and profound African features. At the tender age of 12 Anowa stood a staggering 5’7 inches and 140 pounds. Her distinct appearance segregated her from most of her peers. Consequently, Anowa expressed her dissent through confrontation and physical violence. As an alternative to her obstructive behavior, Anowa’s parents got her involved in Athletics. Ironically, she took a natural interest to sports, excelling in both Basketball and Track and Field. 
Immediately after graduating High school, Anowa attended Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she graduated with a degree in Public Relations.
Although she was a gifted journalist and marketing guru, Anowa was focused on breaking into the Entertainment industry. As a gateway into the Industry, Anowa fixed her sights on modeling because of her height and distinct features. Unfortunately, just as earlier childhood tribulations, many modeling companies rejected Anowa’s muscular,curvier physique. Never deterred, she attempted to contact fitness agencies anticipating a positive response however she was denied there as well. At that moment Anowa decided to create her own fitness company “Powerhouse Physiques,LLC.” which encourages women to”Lose the weight but keep their curves”! Rather than acclimating to the current fitness trend which considered “rail thin” models as Healthy and fit, Anowa created her own brand. Standing an astounding 5’10 inches, 212 pounds in superb shape, Anowa felt her journey would influence more people to broaden their minds on Fitness. Beyond business owner, Anowa also received her certification in personal training and group instruction.
Today, Anowa has created her first line of Powerhouse Physiques workout DVDs, which contains exercises for women looking to shed weight but sustain their curves. In addition to her DVDs, she created her own “PowerHouse Physiques Workout and Wellness Tour.” The tour travels to various cities promoting group classes that feature exercises from her upcoming Workout DVD “Lose The Gutt, Keep The Butt”. She also utilizes her tour to promote the message of Self-Acceptance, and Optimal Health.
In addition, her Fitness brand has expanded to aid mothers. Anowa gave birth to twin boys via c-section November 12, 2012. After her pregnancy she was able to shed 80 pounds and fix her Diastasis Recti ( which is the separation of lower abdominals muscles as a result of a multiple birth, carrying a large baby, or numerous pregnancies) utilizing her Powerhouse Physiques Techniques.
Anowa’s drive is fueled by her passion to Inspire women to look and feel better about themselves. Anowa sums up her journey by simply saying,” No one has a choice in their genetic makeup, however learn to accept your unique qualities as your blessings. – Anowa Adjah

 Good morning...  #LetterToYoungerSelf So I started promoting this project as a way for us to reflect on our past experiences and grow from them. Most of our current issues are much deeper than we realize. This is your opportunity to heal and grow. Thank you @nicolleroche for participating! #Repost @nicolleroche with @repostapp ・・・ Hey young girl, You lost big at a young age and that turned you into an angry teen and young adult but don't be so angry. It's ok to be hurt and have pain but don't live there; cry, yell, curse, process and move on. Some things you can never change. Your mom departed this world early and I know it hurts like hell to not remember the woman who gave you life but push through that pain, open up, find genuine friends and family to talk out that pain with, it will get better, time will heal that wound. It's ok that you had a baby young, you will still succeed, f the naysayers. Guess what you will have another baby and people will look down on you for that too, once again f the naysayers. You gave the world two kings, everyone can't do that, thank God for choosing you! Don't let the negative thoughts consume you. The devil will try to take your mind but God! You will have ups and downs but the ups will overshadow every down! Oh and the weight thing, you'll get over that! You won't ever be skinny but that's ok too, focus on being happy and healthy, love every single part of you. Oh those stretch marks, and scars, remember two kings! Don't allow the things others say destroy your self esteem, know your self worth. Honor the greatness within, God made you a black queen. Remember you are the original, all life begins with you. You will always be more than enough just as you are. It's ok to be single, don't feel a need to shield yourself from dealing with issues by entertaining people unworthy of your time and attention, focus on you, learn to love you, because you are dope! Don't alter yourself to fit into any man's vision of who you should be, be who you want to be, don't give up, push forward. The king that raised you, only deal with men as great as him, everyone else is just a distraction and takes time away from
 #transformationtuesday (Similar short hairstyle different appearance)I wanted to give you a clear example of how added weight can completely alter your appearance. The before picture was 8 months after I had my twin boys via C-section. As you can clearly see I was suffering from Diastasis Recti( Complete separation of the abdominal muscles as a result of a multiple pregnancy or a large baby). The condition can make you look 4-5 months pregnant. In addition, I was also left with a hernia. When you are diagnosed with Diastasis Recti the condition can always return. You have to make a consistent effort to train and eat right. In this picture I also weighed about 225 pounds.Having children will send your body into a whirlwind. I also looked about 10 years older then my After picture. After picture: This picture was taken a few months ago. I weighed 210 pounds and gave up all meat except for fish for 45 days. I lost some gains in my legs because I stayed away from heavy weight. I was happy to see you abs start to lean and pop. As you can see my Diastasis Recti was not really a factor. I look forward to addressing this issue with other mothers who are suffering from this condition. Please go to and check out my next workout challenge which kicks off September 6th. Next challenge kicks off September 6th!
