Famed mass muscle body builder Pit Trenz has died at the age of 53, his wife revealed in a heart-breaking statement.

“My husband, Pit Trenz (Former IFBB PRO), died after we were fighting side by side for four weeks,” Sarah Trenz said on Instagram.

“He was my heart, my life, my second half. He always said, we are one person.

“I don’t know how life can go on. He was my life.

“I will push forward, only for him. Pit was most afraid of being separated from me. And I of him. The best person I have ever met.”

Trenz was admitted to hospital earlier in the year where he was treating an unspecified heart condition. Reports believe that Trenz’s body reacted poorly to the medicine which eventually led to his organs failing.
