I long for more honest and sincere relationships in my life. I think strong women are often misunderstood as being cold, detached, and heartless but it’s the extreme opposite. We want the ability to feel safe and secure. We want to be able to hang up our superwoman capes and relax. I want to thank my close friends and family for the calls, messages, flowers, gifts, etc. I want to thank the supporters that constantly sent DMs and messages checking in on my recovery…This has been one of the hardest moments of my life and it feels good to no longer feel alone…”
“I bet you’d never guess 2.5 months ago I had several Baseball-sized Uterine Fibroid Tumors surgically removed. I bet you’d never guess that I lost 20-pounds in 4.5 weeks! Let me add that I’m also currently homeschooling very active 7-year old twin boys. On top of that I’m running a business which assists thousands of women on their Fitness Journey! (@anowaadjahfitness ) Listen! I GET IT! I currently have close friends on the front lines of the Covid-19 crisis in New York and California! Times are challenging right now! It’s so easy to give up but you can’t! You have people depending on you! You truly want this! If there is anything we learned during this time is that nothing is guaranteed! I had the next 3 months planned out and it’s completely gone to waste! Take this moment to be grateful and invest in yourself!”
Growing up, Anowa received much criticism from her peers 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.
“My mother was a major influence on me to do fitness,” confesses Anowa. “She was a former Track & Field athlete in Nigeria and has always been committed to working out and taking care of herself.”
Now, she’s literally helping thousands of women everywhere achieve their body, weight and health goals.
