2022 Transformation challenge for over-40 guys GFIT2022

Calling all guys over 40 (except Putin – he is not allowed to sign up)! It is time for the launch of the 2022 BODY TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE for all over 40 guys. [I will be referring to it as #GFIT2022 in future.]


We had some GREAT results in 2021 and most of the guys that ended in the top 5 want to take part in the challenge again to climb the ladder higher. I simply love that eagerness!

Want to join these guys in 2022? Well, now is your chance! This challenge is for us everyday guys. Us normal, hardworking, family loving guys. No special athletes or fitness professionals!

Here is the link to the 2021 challenge and results: https://gertlouw.com/2021/12/13/how-much-success-can-the-older-body-achieve-in-5-months/

We have already 10 guys indicated they want to take part in the 2022 challenge. There are no more excuses this year guys. Access to the gym is easier now that Covid-19 is starting to be something of the past. MAKE THIS HAPPEN in 2022.

Getting a jump start

You can use any diet or system of your choosing. But, for those interested, I’ve designed a 6-month transformation system specifically for the GFIT challenge. It incorporates a Building phase period and Cutting phase period to get your body ready for the after photos. Comprehensive and step-by-step and customized for your body, age and goals (diet/training/supplements) and I give you a tracking logbook where you can track your body changes every 14 days. Those that want to get a head start, you can sign-up through the following link ($110 US) SIX MONTH TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM FOR THE OLDER GUY

But off course not all of us have the finances available! So, for those of you that are currently struggle with finances, here is a link to a FREE starter system I’ve posted online: https://gertlouw.com/my-transformation-program/ – LET NOTHING STOP YOU IN YOUR QUEST!

Each entrant will also receive a the following:

  • EXCEL logbook which they must use to track and evaluate their progress every 14 days during the 6 month period. This logbook must then be emailed back to gertlouwljc@hotmail.com with the 2 AFTER photos (front and back in boxer shorts) before 7th Dec 2022.
  • Training program template
  • Diet structure template
  • Regular check ins from me (roughly every 14 days) to motivate a little.
  • BELOW IS THE DOWNLOAD LINK FOR THE LOGBOOK (containing the LOGBOOK, TRAINING and DIETING templates) – email me for password (gertlouwljc@hotmail.com)

PRIZE money

The prize money is just something small for all your hard work and to give you some recognition.


So, guys…grab this opportunity and reach for that dream that has been so elusive up till now. YOU, can be the one that inspire people in future! MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Happy transformations everyone…
