Major “ESPN” scam supplements

Hi everyone, just want to give you a heads up about one of the latest major scam supplement products out there. It is marketed under ESPN (which is NOT the real ESPN) and in the advertisement, fake stories are made up to support ridiculous claims of it’s worth.


These two scam products are: HYPERTONE FORCE and HYPERTONE EXCEL.

Neither the gold medalist, Wayde van Niekerk or me (Gert Louw), both mentioned as “proof” in the article, has ever touched this product. Both our photos stolen and fake stories written.

Please stay clear, this is a well known trick to get hooks into your credit card for monthly deductions and you’re going to get a worthless product.

Never (!) believe marketing articles with fantastical claims over the internet. 99% of them are scams to get access to your credit cards.

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!

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. Hello..
    I am also 40.. and truly inspired by all your videos on YouTube. You are an inspiration and motivation to all the people like me around the world..
    With all the Love..

  2. Thanks for exposing the most outrageous, dispicable ad I have ever seen. I knew immediately it fraudulent. Most people would accept, at value, the “ESPN” references and logos but I have been exposing Internet scams to my friends and family members has been my hobby ever since there was an Internet; I know them when I see them. These people rarely go to jail, with one notable exception, Kevin Trudeau. Many otherwise reputable sites have these kinds of ads. They count on readers to know the difference between “honest” and the not so honest ads. But, in this case, the dishonesty and theft photos and logos is so blatantly over the line, the perpetrators NEED TO GO TO JAIL! If I were an attorney, I would take this case in a heartbeat. While I do not think the owners of the website on which I saw this ad were aware of this particular ad, they need to understand how dangerous these deceptive practices are to their readers. The websites need to be aware of what they are advertising. I would see them in court, too. Please sue the makers of this product.

  3. Gert,

    I was very pleased to receive this for two reasons. One it is an important piece of information to get out tto the public. Scams like these are just wrong. They are cheating the customer and they are very possibly making the customer feel that they are not able to achieve the bodybuilding goals that they have set for themselves. This can create a failure mode for the customer which is bad for the customer who does not realize that it was not them but rather someone has cheated them. Destroying this hope is a real sin in my eyes.

    the second reason I was pleased to see it was this is leading me to think that things are getting better with your business situation. I hope that this is the case. I am sure it has been a long hard journey to fix what others have done to your business and ultimately you and your family. It might not be completely over but I hope that the situation is well on its way to being corrected.

    Your spring is beginning to happen so I hope you and your family can be getting out to Pearly Beach for some good R & R…..I am sure that you can use it.

    Take care my friend,

    1. Very true John, these scammers are stealing much more from people than just money!
      About our business – Although the wheel is turning much more smoothly at our business now, we are still under immense cash flow pressure. The past 3 months we had 2 internal theft syndicates involving 15 employees and 2 internal major theft incidents by internal employees stealing altogether nearly 1 000 000 quid! So the process of recovery will be slow and it will take us close to 2 years to be fully back on our feet.
      But we are sharpening every aspect of the company for better service delivery and smooth internal operation. All our employees do polygraphs testing now.
      Thanks for caring John…and I agree we need some rest at Pearly Beach!

      1. I am so glad to see you are on top of these scammers. I saw the ad and was intrigued, then after scrolling down in noticed your before and after pics (which I recognized) and started laughing. I have followed you for a few years now and knew from that point on it was all Scams and lies!

  4. Hi Sir,

    thank you very much for this feedback

    Patrick (Belgium)
