My journey through the dark side of the body beautiful
Quite a few guys asked me what was the biggest impact on my life after I achieved this muscled physique and healthy living success. Some things changed, like suddenly more people are friendly with you, people have more respect when talking to you and yes, sure…looks like wife loves me more!
But the biggest problem that came with the whole deal revolves around sex, lust and temptation. I had many, many(!) guys, girls, and couples (married and otherwise) that offered me in no uncertain terms…sex. Yes, you heard right, even married couples. And some of these people are incredibly attractive!
Now, I am no-one special. I am certain that any muscle guy or fitness girl, having a high internet visibility, have this problem to contend with. The people making the offers don’t care about what you stand for. That is irrelevant to them.
I’ve been offered gifts, large sums of money and even people that wanted to travel from another continent just to have sex…
But, I LOVE sex!
Believe me I am no “Amish” when it comes to sex. I LOVE sex even some kinky stuff! BUT I have a family…a loving, 100% loyal, wife and a son looking up to me as the leader of the family showing him how a man and a father must live. When I am 80 y/o, I still want to too be able to lovingly look into my wife’s eyes and give her a passionate kiss without having to feel guilty about cheating her and living a life devoid of integrity.
Sure the world reckons what others don’t know won’t hurt or harm them and thus they just do whatever pleases them. Me, on the other hand is not using the world as my moral compass but my moral compass is Jesus Christ. Every evening I have to face God and He gives me my moral guidance.
For me ignoring my rules guiding my integrity is a path of self-destruction. I lose all love for myself and literally start to hate myself. This path always leads to severe depressive states and can easily result in suicide. Believe me I know what I am talking about, I’ve been there. Long ago this was my life and it was a worthless life. After nearly dying at 40 my appreciation and love for life changed me.
It is not about what the other person do not know…it is about what I know! Not having self-respect is a sickness of our time…and the resultant symptom is free sex around every corner leading a life devoid of integrity.
Am I immune, to these temptations? Certainly not. EVEN Adam and Eve stumbled with forbidden fruit.
If I ever have one prayer request for my fellow Christians, this will be it. Pray that I will be strengthened to keep leading a life of integrity.
Sometimes this can become so bad that I wondered if it was at all worth it. But then I will get this email from someone I have never met and do not know…about how my life and testimonies literally saved him from a path of destruction and how he turn his/her life around…all because of me. And you know what? This makes it a 1000 times worth over. There is no more incredible feeling when someone tells you, because of you, what you stand for and what you said, because of your life and integrity…I was saved!1.

This blog blessed my heart. A man striving for integrity, and after God’s heart.
You have not only encouraged and convinced me to create and pursue fitness goals, but also integrity and God.
You are a inspiring guy. May God continue to be glorified in your life.
In my prayers brother.
Jason – this is a very kind comment…May God bless your journey, both the physical one and the spiritual one!
Thanks for your prayers my friend…Gert
Not only has discovering your videos, website, and diet & training tips been a pleasant one, but discovering that you are a born again christian has indeed thrilled me! SO GLAD to hear this!
That is a seldom found thing nowadays, especially among weight and personal trainers/bodybuilders etc.
That news alone makes you my favorite go-to source for training tips/advice! At just recently just turning 60 my hope is to get into the best shape of my life. I’ve been training since my 20’s so I have a decent base, but at 260 lbs, my work is cut out for me in getting lean while building or at least retaining what muscle I can.
Looking forward to your advice and videos.
Hey thanks for that kind words Ernest!
Man I have seen many guys well into their 60’s and even 70’s who had incredible transformations. It is still very much possible!
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Wish u much success and God bless your journey brother.

You can CHOOSE at any time to be selfish or selfless.
You can CHOOSE to be a force for good or evil.
You making the harder choice. The path least followed (the narrow gate).

In Christ, James ________________________________
You too my very good friend!
You are such an inspiration, thank you.
Hey Nico – thanks man! Baie blessings vir jou maat!
Mr. Louw: thank you for your witness, it certainly helps all of us who follow your posts. I also found it interesting to note that once you became fit then people are more friendly more respectful etc. I think this points to an important distinction — man looks on the outside and God sees what is within. Remembering the story of David and his selection by God to become Israel’s king: he was not the “obvious” choice as his brothers were bigger and stronger, but God looked within him. So often the world judges the book by it’s cover.
You, my friend, have become a good steward of your God-given body, never forgetting that it is simply ‘on loan’ from God, a mere vessel for your spirit and the Holy Spirit. You are building your body with the correct motivations — to be a good steward, to bring honor to your Creator. This is especially important in the fitness industry, which largely “judges the book by its cover”.
One last note: I found your reference to Amish humorous. I didn’t know that South Africa had any Amish communities (do you have these communities?) I grew up surrounded by the old order Amish and find their lifestyle fascinating (particularly since some of my ancestors were Amish). Incidentally, the Amish have some of the lowest rates of obesity in the United States. They walk ALOT!!
Train hard, and bless you my friend!
Hey thanks Joe – really did not mean the AMISH referance as disrepectful In fact got MUCH respect for them. Could just not think of a better term to reference that particular sentence.
Actually think the world has a lot top learn from them….on various levels. No Amish here in South Africa – just the narrow minded Hollywood portrayel of them!
But wanna thank you for your feedback…it truly means a lot to me. It is a battle being fought not just by me but all over this world for souls. We need to pray because that is where the power lies!
May God bless you and your loved ones in 2017!
Gert, from the get go, you have stated your faith in Jesus Christ. Thank you for reaffirming that to us. When you state this in public then you holding yourself accountable. Thanks.
Really appreciate your feedback Philip! Stay strong in faith my friend…let’s be vigilent!
God bless man! G.
You are TRULY an inspiration! Well…unfortunately, you are paying the price for being “EYE CANDY”! God bless you & continue on your journey in helping lead us 2 a healthier lifestyle. Thank you!🙏
Hey thanks Mary! MUCH blessings for you to! G.

You are for sure a most beautiful man, from your hard work and dedication to fitness, I am grateful for your words….I likewise follow Jesus Christ, but have struggled with SSA, as I likewise love my wife and a son, and have been blessed with an excellent life. I love fitness, and in loving fitness exposes me to the other temptations…..I rarely slip….but thank you for your honesty, your story, your life…I am a fan of yours on ALL levels. I love you brother. Steve
