Many guys trade-in wife for a younger bombshell but alas I love wife too much to do that!

Second option was to buy myself a red Ferrari but I have asked, no pleaded, many times on my youtube videos for a sugar mommy to sponsor me, again to no avail (not yet anyway).

So the only “gift” I could give myself was a muscled body and a photo shoot to go with that.

So here is the proof of my venture and shoot.

Request for a small contribution to the site.

Please help me keeping the site on air and free. Through many of the life uplifting posts I have helped many people facing and overcoming dark moments in their life. By sponsoring this site you help them too!


Keep on training!

Gert Louw

Too God be the glory…

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. 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, my youtube channel and spending time with family! And off course me and my son's new adventure ...and love flying my drone - DJI Phantom 4 Pro 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 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 13 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! So donations very welcome! Just click the donation button... I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40. 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. 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. You inspired me at the turn of 40 by your no BS, no self-defeating attitude by following foolish or extra cautious advice, and result-oriented approached.

  4. Happy Birthday Gert. You have given yourself the best birthday gift you possibly could receive. Congratulations and the pics are all incredible and something to be very proud of. I turn the BIG “50” next month and wish I looked the same and would have started lifting sooner. You’re a great inspiration. I’m parachuting for my 50th, extremely fearful of heights, conquering my giants one at a time.

    1. Thanx Clinton…I agree that was the best gift I could have given myself…but these muscles would have look damn good in a red Ferrari as well!
      COngrats on your next month 50th birthday and ENJOY the parachuting!
      The important thing is that you’ve started building that body…I beleive there is still much time to grow ahead…I wanna look better at 60 than I looked at 50. Let’s show the youngsters a thing or two!

  5. Just a question bro is headaches one of your side effects? I’ve been having headaches on the right side of my head and eye ve been having headaches on the right side of my head and eye

    1. Gerry the things is your body needs time to adapt to the meds and during that time headaches could be prevelant.
      LOTS of water to help flushing out the toxins from liver and kidneys helps.
      But if the headaches becomes unbearable…chat with your doctor.
      I believe within a month they should be better.
      Stay strong buddy and keep fighting the good fight!

  6. Happy Birthday bro! Very Impressive you surely don’t even look 50! I wanna look like that when I’m 50 Godwilling!!!! m 50 Godwilling!!!!
