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. love the pics…..because of you I WILL be at 8% bodyfat at the end of the year at 47 years old.

  2. Hi. I’m turning 40 today , first this in the am got your email. You’re my motivation. On my way to,the gym now. Thank you.


    1. Awesome buddy. Wish you a VERY blessed day. 40 was when I started and now I am 51 …so the road ahead is gonna make a fantastic journey of you gonna make it happen.
      Truly wish you success! G.

    1. Kevin, I cannot squat or deadlift due to my knee problems…but I do leg presses fairly hard and then lunges to built the legs. Bench pressing I am quite hardcore – do 130kg for 3 sets of 8 reps straight and up to 3 times per session. Albeit now I am entering my cutting phase so lighter weights and more reps with supersets…

  3. Very nice collection of mottos, the one I like the most is “Do or Do Not, There is No Try”. I have a friend of mine who, when watching at your photos, insists on saying that such a body can be built up only with steroids. I know that you are natural, but what would yo say to convince him?

    Thanks, Andrew

    1. Yeah got to love the YODA saying – lol! Thanx Andrew – appreciate the feedback!
      It took me 11 years of hardcore dedication to get where I am so this did not come overnight. When the balance between the building blocks (diet/training to failure/supplements/cutting phase/building phase/resting/) is not right then the body does not respond. When you get that balance right then your body is designed to respond effectively. But most people struggle with one or two of those building blocks and as such never really get anywhere. And also when a guy is over 40 you MUST go for regular testing of your testosterone levels and make sure that it is at healthy levels. If not then does not matter what you do the body will not respond for growth. Due to my vigorous training and healthy lifestyle I am still on the good side of it. Wish u a GREAT day my friend! G.
