Legendary German bodybuilder Pit Trenz has died at the age of 53 and his wife has said she does not know “how her life can go on”.
The bodybuilder represented Germany throughout his career as an IFBB Pro bodybuilder and his wife and fellow bodybuilder Sarah Trenz has confirmed his death.
Trenz has spent time in hospital earlier this year to deal with an unspecified heart condition and was given medicine which was not well-received by his body and reportedly led to organ failure.
He went on to suffer pneumonia before his lungs collapsed and he died in a German hospital on 3rd November 2019.
His wife posted a photo of the pair on social media with the caption: “Yesterday when we planned that I compete at my Pro Debut. My husband, Pit Trenz ( Former IFBB PRO), died after we were fighting side by side for 4 weeks.
“He was my heart, my life, my second half. He always said, we are one person.nI don’t know how life can go on. He was my life. I will push forward, only for him. Pit was most afraid of beeing separated from me. And I of him. The best person I have ever met. (sic)”
Pit himself had updated fans on his condition six days before his death, writing: “Still alive. Not much news. After three weeks of intensive are there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight…
“No day is predictable. Every two days a new problem appears.”
Pit had retired from bodybuilding but helped prepare and support other professionals such as Roman Fritz, Dennis Wolf and Markus Ruhl.
