Guys…I am launching for 2021 the ‘G-FIT’ BODY TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE for all over 40 guys (not just my clients). ALL VIA THE INTERNET.

It is all about the older guy showing what can be done when dedicated under a 12 month period.

Now guys, this is NOT about winning but about making use of this opportunity to focus your mind to get the winning mindset to make this transformation happen this year!


To ENTER, you need to do 2 things:

  1. Sending your BEFORE photo (full length – just boxer shorts, relaxed) and your STATS (see below) to email: BEFORE 31st July 2021.
  2. Paying a $25 US entry fee. However this is optional and I do not want this to stand in your way to take part in this challenge. The entry fee money will be used to increase the prize money on top of what I already sponsor. Entry fee’s can be paid here: GoFundMe GFIT2021 [use NAME  and SURNAME as reference]

The last thing you need to do to complete your entry is sending your AFTER photo and stats to before or on 1st Dec 2021.

Both before and after photos (full length in boxer shorts/briefs and relaxed) must be taken during 2021. With the before and after photo you must also take measurements in inches or cm’s of  

  • Biceps (largest area – flexed)  
  • Chest (nipple height)  
  • Waist (navel height)   
  • Upper legs (largest area)
  • Body weight on the scale 

All before photos and stats must be emailed on or before 31 July 2021 to – 31 July 2021 is the cutoff date for entries. Those entered must then email after photos and stats to no later than 1st Dec 2021. 

The top 15 guys will then be selected for a youtube video according to progress simply based on stats, nothing else. 

A youtube video will then be made showcasing the top 15 guys and their transformation. The viewers will then vote on the contender who they think made the biggest difference in body shape – aesthetically. The stats will count 50% and the voting will count 50%. Scores will then be tallied and the winners will be rewarded prizes. 


Apart from money for prices sponsored by GertFITNESS, I am also launching a GoFundMe project for the G-FIT contest to help us getting a decent sum of prize money – CLICK HERE to go to the GoGetFunding project and PLEASE sponsor a small amount so we can get some decent prizes together for the guys.Any other sponsorship like clothing or supplementation also most welcome – please contact me via email (

For starters I will, out of my own pocket allocated the following amounts for the winners:

  • 1st place: $200 US 
  • 2nd place: $100 US 
  • 3rd place: $50 US 
  • 4th place: $25 US 
  • 5th place: $25 US 

BUT (!) we want to increase that drastically with all type of sponsorships – watch this space…

You thus have a solid 10 months to transform. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!

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. Gert Louw
