Mein Mann , mein Herz, der beste Mensch, dem ich je begegnet bin…ist heute Nacht in den Himmel. Wir haben immer alles zusammen geschafft und konnten uns blind aufeinander verlassen. Diesen schweren Kampf über 4 lange Wochen haben wir nicht gewonnen. Pit war ein Kämpfer und hat vieles Unmögliche geschafft. Doch wie hier hat er noch nie gekämpft. Er hat bis aufs äußerste alles gegeben. Ich bin so stolz auf ihn! Mein Mann war ein großartiger Trainer, wurde viel zu oft ausgenutzt. Aber er war ein noch viel bessere Mann und Mensch. Alles was ich nie zu träumen gewagt hätte. Wir haben nie Angst gehabt zu sterben, nur uns zu verlieren. Pit hat immer gesagt wir sind ein Mensch. Ich weiß nicht wie es nur einen Tag weiter gehen soll. Ich werde weiter machen- nur für Pit. Es war sein ausdrücklicher Wunsch durchzuziehen, was wir vor hatten.

A post shared by Pit (@pit_trenz) on

“My husband, my heart, the best person I have ever met … is in heaven tonight.

We always managed everything together and could rely on each other blindly.
We did not win this heavy fight over 4 long weeks.

Pit was a fighter and did a lot of the impossible. But like here he has never fought. He gave everything to the utmost. I’m so proud of him!

My husband was a great coach, too often exploited.
But he was a much better man. Everything I never dared dream.

We were never afraid to die, only to lose ourselves.
Pit always said we are human.
I do not know how it should go only one more day.
I’ll keep going – just for pit. It was his express wish to go through what we had in mind.”

Pit Trenz was not only a competitor but had trained Dennis Wolf and Markus Ruhl in the past, the later posting his own condolences on his Instagram.

Per Markus Rhul’s Instagram:

“My friend and former coach Peter Trenz died far too young. Our thoughts are with his family and his wife. You will always be remembered.”

Generation Iron offers condolences to Pit Trenz, his family and loved ones.
