He adopted a few dogs who bring fun and laughter to life as he brings expertise and faithfulness to his clients.
Naor, the man
Naor aim for the best expects the best and will be the best. He enters the room like his training room in the Israeli army. He learns the ropes, takes instruction, and studies the best. From there he goes on to be the best and then enters the next room and does the same. Working with him means never quitting and always trying.
Besides the ab-busting, cardio-raging and lifelong fitness changes that he instills within his program, he has a regular side. He enjoys movies, walks and spending time with his friends and girlfriend. Everything needs balance and albeit he is a model, bodybuilder and now fitness guru he fits in time to build his real estate business.
A dark time
Like his icon Arnie, Naor had a few bumps on the road to where he is now. Most notable, as he recalls at 27, “I thought it was game over for my days as a fitness model and that I will not be able to train as before”. He underwent heart valve replacement surgery, which had him in recovery for a few months before he could lift anything remotely heavy.
He has since returned as a stronger, healthier and fitter athlete. His 10-year-old self would have never imagined a turn of events but he would give this advice to himself and others, “you will be the best”. Even after major surgery, he still holds on to being the best.
Coming from an army background, transitioning to professional modelling, bodybuilding and going on to professional qualifications in personal training- you would expect a grand plan of global Yazdan domination? However, in 10 years, he puts the focus on the things that matter now and forever, “I see myself doing the things I love with the family I love- and a huge success!” For more and to keep up with his journey, connect with him here and watch out for some free personal training tips:
