Recent photos (Aug/Sept 2012)

After 2008 my bodybuilding took a dive due to my only son who was born and time was at a premium.

When he reached 4 y/o I started training seriously again at the end of 2010. This time around I knew what I was doing so within 18 months I achieved more than I did in my earlier 4 year transformation.
For the past year and a half my training and health has been excellent and no injuries (I thank God). So I am busy breaking new barriers.

My updated  TRANSFORMATION VIDEO: Transformation journey of a 48 y/o
Will keep posting with updates.
I know there are many guys out there with better built than me, but few of my age (48) or older can challenge me so I considered myself very blessed!

Here is a few recent pics to show my current form.

Wish you all MUCH success.

In the deepest south of South Africa you will find me. Dwelling in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I live close to God and try to follow in the footsteps of Christ as led the Holy Spirit. I am a fitness freak right now…but struggle with the cardio – my body just not built for much cardio! The weights I LOVE throwing around! The battle against the weights and intense strength required, is really my cup of tea! I am one of those LOUD guys in gym while training, that’s why I train when as little as possible people around…lol! Starting now with my building phase (3 months) and me and my training partner is really pushing each other to new heights. He is more cardio orientated than me so he is currently KILLING ME! SO 6-PACK, I AM WAITING…SHOW ME HOW DEEP YOUR CUTS CAN GO! Other passions include Karate and Judo and wrestling (and off course surfing for many years). Karate I did for many years, Judo 4 yrs and for a short period kickboxing until I was knocked silly one time with blood all over and teeth protruding through my lip, but if I have to choose over, I would choose wrestling…simply because of the brutal power against power game with your opponent. Love it. Love my home theatre hobby, making youtube videos and spending time with family! Can’t wait for 4K projectors to hit mainstream! For those interested, this blog is my database of all my fitness and transformation knowledge. And NO (!) I am not getting any money for it, not selling anything on it and neither do I promote anything on it or getting sponsored by anybody. My blog is simply where I want to help other guys living a healthier life and become the best they can be, inside and out and ultimately it is my legacy I want to leave my one and only son – now 7 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40 and since then fighting against severe kidney and liver damage. Don’t like talking about it, but this is now 10 years after I was given 2 years to live. After much hardship one of my main aims now is to assist other guys with healthy living and transforming themselves inside and out. I don’t know how much grace will still be given me, but I live now every moment to be the best I can be. To be the best bodybuilder I can be, the best father, best husband and best friend to those whom my paths crosses. I want to live a life worth living and not just do what excites me or pleases me. Living with grace everyday, death becomes a closer reality. This is how I view it: ~DEATH~ A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to Leave the examination room and said, ‘Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side..’ Very quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know..’ ‘You don’t know? You’re, a Christian man, and don’t know what’s on the other side?’ The doctor was holding the handle of the door; On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, ‘Did you notice my dog? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside.. He knew nothing except that his master was here, And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing… I know my Master is there and that is enough.’ Feel free to contact me directly if you wish. Reading this far, the last bit important info on me you need to know, is that my anchor in life is Jesus Christ. Please bear in mind, English is my 2nd language and as a result their might be spelling, grammatical and other language errors in my blog – I do apologise for this! Wish you all many blessings.

  1. Hi hi Gert ons het ‘n honderd jaar laas gepraat. Hoe gaan dit daar met jou. Lank laas ‘n update gesien hoe gaan dit met jou oefen.

  2. Hello Gert dis lekker om jou blog te volg. Dis my begeerte om soos jy gebou te wees. Gaan jou program volg.

    1. Xandre – jong ek wens jou sukses toe maat. Dit KAN gedoen wees, dis al so baie bewys. So MAAK DIT GEBEUR! Gebruik my program as wegspringpunt en soos jy dinge leer, maak jou eie veranderings en maak dit jou eie…maar maak klein veraderings op ‘n slag en maak seker jou verandering werk voordat jy nog ‘n verandering aanbring. As jy support nodig het…kontak my enigte tyd. G.

      1. Baie dankie Gert waardeer jou terug skrywe. Dink ek is redelik op die regte pad met jou program vir nou. Ek het net een ding nodig en dis ‘n toegewyde gym buddy. Dis maar pretty boring alleen. Dink jy jy kan vir my ene uit die Kaap pos. Hahaha

    2. Jong jy kan BAIE regkry sonder ‘n gym buddy as jou kop reg is…maar baie ouens by die gym soek net so naarstigtilik na iemand om mee saam te train so praat maar rond en jy behoort gou reg te kom. Kies versigtig…die ou moet dieselfde aim he as jy met die oefenry. Sterkte! G.

      1. Jip het dit agter gekom die ouens wil net rondvoeter. Dat is wye i want to order 1 from mother russia.

      2. lol! well said! Ja jong kies maar versigtig.
        Ek het nou ‘n 19 jarige outjie wat saam met my train…stoot my intensiteit vlak paar levels op! Alhoewel ek 90% van die tyd op my eie oefen moet ek erken dit doen wondere vir jou program on so nou en dan ‘n serious training partner te he. Lekker oefen. G.

  3. Gert, my old friend! This is Dr Joe from Philadelphia, USA. Your physique has certainly changed and gotten thicker. I am severely jealous. Your health is good I hope, and can we see photos of your perfect boy, who must be school age by now. In the past I had looked at your business website (restaurant wholesale?), and hopefully for you business remains busy? Here in medicine we spend much time working with addicts. But in science God is banished and mocked. Unless of course you’re an addict and we have nothing else to offer, then you can preach the gospel all day! Most of the homework I give out is bible based, and well received. Hey, if I came to visit, can you get us a dinner with Pistorius? Haha, and God bless!

    1. Joe….man been AGES since we last spoke!
      So good to hear from you. Yip going very good this side and my health is really good lately. You can probably see it in how my body looks. I count my blessings every day!
      I am posting a photo of Janu for you on my blog…
      Stay close to the Lord buddy and have a GREAT day!

  4. Well done, Gert, only known you in a year, but you have already added mass to your frame, and your motivation, and positive encouragement to all of us embarking on this journey is an inspiration to us (esp, over 40) that with perseverance, it can be done, and done well in the right way. Gert also inspires me as a man of faith, keeping his priorities in check, and still able to balance his personal goals, family and faith.

    1. Thanx bud! Yeah…my focus is, must and will always be on God. I have been in very dark places in my life and I never want to be there again. Wish you a GREAT day my friend. Gert
