  • Sibil Peeters: The Trainer from Hell

    They say, behind every good man, there is a good woman. In the case of Roelly Winklaar, that good woman is Sibil Peeters.

    When Dutchman Roelly went from Arnold Amateur winner in 2009, to Olympia-qualified athlete in 2010, no one expected his guru to be a mother, much less a grandmother.

    Sibil is known by two things to the people she trains: Oma, meaning a person you trust and love, and The Trainer from Hell; and she is proud of both monikers.

    Sibil has the ability to bring out the best in her athletes, and is inwardly pleased when her workouts leave them in a crumpled heap on the floor.

    But she does have a softer side. Ask her about her grandson, and she will tell you, “He means everything to me - more than the bodybuilding. For him, I leave everything falling.”

    Read on to find out more about Sibil, the Trainer from Hell.

    AZ: By your avatar, I take it that you have competed in the past. Tell me a little bit about your competition history.

    SP: I won my first competition, which was in 1990. It was the Houtrust Halle in Den Haag. I was thirty-seven years old.

    Next, I competed in the Dutch Championship. For four years, I received second and third place. I also competed in Belgium, receiving the same placings.

    Then, at the World Championships, I took fifth place.

    AZ: Most of the guys call you Oma, the Dutch word for grandmother. How did that come about, and do you like being called that?

    SP: Oma is ŗ person you trust and love. Of course, I like being called that!

    AZ: Letís talk about Roelly for a minute. Do you remember when you first met him? Did you see something special in him right away, or was it a pleasant surprise when you saw his physique taking shape?

    SP: I saw Roelly in several competitions, but hŤ was never ripped.

    I was thinking that guy needs someone to kick his ass,

    HŤ was thinking I need that old woman to bring me so far!

    AZ: Giles Thomas came to visit you and said he got the Royal Treatment. Iíve seen the video of the shoulder workout he referred to as brutal. Then I read about how he started to do legs with you, but ended up sitting outside where someone came along and said thatís exactly where he ended up after his first leg day with you! Have you always been this tough?

    SP: I have trained in martial arts from the age of four. There was no place for crybabies!

    Also, I was one of eleven children growing up. I had to fight just my place in the family!

    AZ: Did you start our training the guys this way, or you came into it over time? I take it you think this is the best method.

    SP: Because my boys and girls have won so many times, I do think itís the best way to train.

    Train hard. Eat enough. Sleep well.

    Train harder. Eat more. Sleep better.

    Every training session needs to be at least as good as the one before it. This has always given me the best possible results.

    AZ: Iíve read various places that you are very proactive in your gym with all the guys, not just Roelly. You go from person to person helping them all. You obviously have a great deal of passion for what you do. Where did this passion come from?

    SP: The passion comes from my love for the sport.

    It is my goal to bring out the best in every athlete.

    By hard work and dedication we will set a new standard for training.

    AZ: You are a coach in the truest since of the word. I hear that you donít watch over just the diet or just the training. You watch over it all. What are the benefits of having one person oversee everything, as opposed to having different people for diet, training, and supplementation?

    SP: It allows me to control the complete process, from building the foundation, all the way to the contest.

    This ensures the best result.

    AZ: What is next for you? What are you working on, and what would you like to see happen next year?

    SP: Next for me is doing what I do best: bringing out the best in my athletes and taking them to thŤ next level.
