Angelique van der Linde

Vice President and fitness coach of the JVL group

This fitness “Angel” has become a worldwide phenomenon. Known for her involvement in the fitness & lifestyle boutique shops, JVL Wellness & Lifestyle Centers, and distribution hubs situated across South Africa, she has taken the fitness industry by storm.

She succeeded in placing South Africa on the map and her success story is aimed at changing lifestyles, sculpting results and reaching new goals! Since winning the Couples Division at the World Championships in fitness and bringing back gold to South Africa in the Fitness America Pageant, held in Las Vegas for the Bikini division, this fitness influencer has surely drawn a lot of attention and she promises that the best is yet to come! Angelique’s physique was born from a self-made success story. She was an overweight and frustrated ballet dancer and one day realized that she had to stop the destructive cycle of “yo-yo” dieting. “The moment I found a training regime that I believed in and enjoyed, the results came by itself. Everyone around me was as surprised as I was.” Whilst running her own law firm, acting as Vice president to the JVL brand and being a committed mother, she is the heart of the JVL brand.
