Jaco and Annelize Venter
My wife and I started our training and nutrition with Julian Naidoo at the end of 2010. This was after a year in the fitness/bodybuilding and bikini scene.
Before we met Julian, She placed 5th at the WPF SA Champs in 2010 and I placed 2nd in the fitness category-only 2 athletes (weight 67.5kg) I later went on to place 5th at the IFBB SA Champs (under 70kgs).
Onwards to Working with Julian
the goal for me was to gain more muscle mass and compete in a heavier category. I gained 7.3kg and weighed in at 74.8kg at the 2011 SA IFBB Champs (I won the Gauteng Provincials) I placed 3rd at the SA IFBB Champs in the category 70kg-75kg.
The goal for Annelize was to improve the overall physique as well as conditioning. That year she placed 2nd in the woman fitness bikini 165 cm and up category-this was a great accomplishment, as the woman’s bikini had many sponsored athletes.
With the help of Julian Naidoo, we accomplished more than we could expect and hence the reason we are using him to condition us for the 2012 and 2013 season.
Most athletes know about diets, as do I, but when it comes to competing there is no set program/diet for all athletes. Julian analyses his athletes, listens to what their feedback is, and creates a program /diet that will give them the best results. He also gets a lot of info/advice from overseas athletes as a result of his friendship with top bodybuilders.
I do not doubt that he is the best trainer for my wife and me and would recommend any serious athletes to consult in him !!
Up to this far I’ve tried to do it by myself and didn’t do too badly.
Teaming up with Julian Naidoo (Jlab) together we have reached conditioning and density I never thought it was possible with my body and we are still going to bring the best package yet because we have been only working together for a couple of months and we have done so well I can only imagine what we going to do with more time together.
During our first season,2012, we have done well-winning titles like:
Rossi Classic men’s 80-90kgs as well as overalls
NABBA provincials class 4 as well as overalls
NABBA Nationals 1st class 4
