Calling all guys over 40! 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]


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

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.
  • FREE Training program template
  • FREE 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!

A Youtube video will be made in Dec 2022 of the top 15 guys who achieved the best results and people would be allowed to vote to determine the winner. So get ready to show yourself to the world!

Happy transformations everyone…
