More and more people are joining the fitness model wagon while saying that they don’t want to have anything to do with steroids and detest the bodybuilders with big guts who use them. It’s understandable. After all, most people don’t consider Ronnie Coleman or Branch Warren ‘aesthetically pleasing’.

The fitness models are gaining more and more popularity through social media such as Facebook and Twitter.


People like their photos every day and call them ‘inspiration’ & ‘motivation’. It all seems nice and sweet.

Hard work, sexy body, attention from the opposite sex…What’s not to like?

However, as they say, the devil manifests as an angel of light. It may look good on the outside, but once you reach the core it shows it’s true color.

Can you have the body of Jaco De Bruyn naturally without sacrificing your health and taking steroids?

1.Jaco De Bruyn is a monster.

Jaco de Bruyn has the following body stats:

Height: 6’1″ – 184 cm;
Weight: 88 kg – 194 lbs;
Body fat: 4-5%;

According to our guide which is just an estimate a GIFTED natural bodybuilder at 6′ 1″ will weight about 190 lbs. Jaco De Bruyn falls outside of that category by 4 lbs. This may seem like a minuscule amount to many of you but the truth is that once you are an advanced lifter it takes 18+ months to gain 4 lbs and that’s if you are training A LOT.

Keep in mind that the legs of Jaco De Bruyn are underdeveloped. This means that he will weight more, if he was to balance his physique.

However, it seems that legs are less important than upper body in the field of fitness modeling. Legs just aren’t marketable.

2.Jaco De Bruyn looks synthetic.

In many of his photos Jaco De Bruyn simply looks synthetic. His body looks like it’s been polished in Photoshop and does not have that natural feel to it.

It seem somewhat fabricated and plastic. True natural bodybuilders don’t show similar characteristics because unless you introduce toxic like chemicals to your body, you won’t look like Captain Photoshop.

The popular fitness icon Aziz Shavershian better known as Zyzz also had that ‘synthetic’ look and actually admitted to steroid use on many occasions.

3.Jaco De Bruyn actually looks bigger than Jeff Seid

In some photos Jaco De Bruyn actually looks bigger than Jeff Seid. This is actually a shocker because on paper Jeff Seid is supposed to be 9 lbs heavier. Well…
