Naturol Evolution

It all started back in 2003. Well, probably much earlier than that, if you count the years I’ve been bodybuilding, and studying the sport.

However, in 2003 the internet was starting to come alive. Most people were already online to some degree.

Back then it was not as simple, as it is today, to just go on Facebook or Twitter, and create an online profile. If you wanted to get your name and profile online, you basically had to create your own webpage. So that’s what I did. I created my own webpage to market myself, as a Natural Bodybuilder.

It was during that year, when I competed in the 2003 Aloha Natural Muscle Classic, that I met a few competitors, who also wanted their own webpage. Since I had already created http://www.naturalmusclehawaii.com, I told them to send me their Bio and photos, and I’d put it up on the website.


I also met a now dear friend of mine, by the name of Renee Paz, who designed custom competition posing suits. She pretty much worked with most of Hawaii’s top competitors. I told her what I was doing with Natural Muscle Hawaii, and she started sending all the Natural competitors my way. The site continued to grow in the number of Natural competitors it showcased.

However, as the web evolved, and social media started taking over, the need to provide a webpage for the Natural athlete slowly diminished.

In recent years, with the flood of information at your fingertips through social media and blogs. With a growing awareness of the low carb lifestyle, and more and more people jumping on the fitness bandwagon it is time for a Natural Health & Fitness evolution.

Naturol.guru is the next step in that evolution process. A blog/website designed around, not just Natural Bodybuilding, but also dedicated to Natural Health, Fitness, and reversing diseases through proper diet and exercise.

No nonsense, straight up, proven strategies!

After seeing so many people in the gym doing things incorrectly, overtraining, and the recent trend of self proclaimed coaches popping up all over social media and the internet, a new website was overdue.

As the founder of http://www.naturalmusclehawaii.com, things have certainly evolved over the years. I remember the days when everyone asked me to help them make a webpage. Now it seems that webpages are almost obsolete. Though we evolve, and times change, many of the principles to successfully transform your body (physique) remain the same.

Natural Bodybuilding & Low Carb Health & Fitness

After years of experimenting, trial, and error, I have decided to share some of the Best Kept Secrets to Weight Loss, Fitness, & Building Muscle!
I do mention low carb because that is the method I’ve used successfully, time and time again.
In more recent years, there has been much more research emerging, that not only supports this method for weight/body-fat reduction, but also for improving overall health.
If you are insulin sensitive, have been diagnosed with the metabolic syndrome, or type II diabetes, implementing a low carb lifestyle is a must. 

Who & What is Naturol?

A little play on words. Naturol is short for Natural Roland. As a Natural Bodybuilder, I’ve spent over 30 years training, researching, and studying the art of the Natural Physique.

What does it mean to be Natural? It means drug (steroid) free.

I’ve been competing since 1996, and have won the following titles.

  • 1996 NPC Hawaii Natural Bodybuilding Championship Novice lightweight (1st Place).
  • 2003 ABA/INBA Aloha Natural Muscle Classic Men’s Open Short Class (1st Place).
  • 2004 ANBA/INBA Natural Hawaiian Islands Bodybuilding Championships Men’s Open Short Class (1st Place & Overall).
  • 2004 ABA/INBA Natural Olympia Men’s Open Short Class (4th Place).
