Portuguese bodybuilder Marco Luis, also known as “Monster,” has passed away at the age of 46 in Germany. He was renowned for his significant social media presence and his role as an online coach and motivator.

His wife shared the news on Facebook, stating: “Yes, I can confirm that Marco has died in Cologne, Germany. He was in his ‘paradise’ doing what he loved. As Marco died in a foreign country, I will have to bring his body back to Portugal after it is released which may take a few days.

The cause of Marco’s death is currently undisclosed. Marco, originally from the volcanic island of Terceira in the Azores, had amassed nearly 25,000 followers on Instagram and ran a YouTube channel where he shared training videos. He described bodybuilding as “his life and passion” and had once claimed to be the “most shredded bodybuilder ever.”

In his heartfelt online biography, Marco, whose full name was Marco Cesar Aguiar Luis, shared: “I was born with physical problems that made it impossible for me to do sports… [But] I realized that my passion was muscle building and with the help of my father we made cement weights and I started training at home. I have never trained in commercial gyms. I was natural until I was 32 because I didn’t even know what chemistry was and it wasn’t until I was 40, in 2018 that I competed for the first time and won.”

Luis Branco, a firefighter from the Azores, reflected on Marco’s impact: “Marco will always be an icon of bodybuilding. He’s the Monster and he will always be remembered by the lovers of the sport he had so much passion for. To all his family, my most sincere condolences at this time of great pain.”

Friend Flavio Gouveia also expressed his sorrow: “I have lost a great friend. I am not one for many words, I didn’t want to believe it when I heard the news. From the first day I entered your house in your gym we always got along well, there was a great friendship right away. We trained many times together, we did great workouts together, you were always a person of goodwill, cheerful, fighting for your dreams, and who always thought about helping others, you never gave up on your dreams, on training and growing, it was what you loved to do! My condolences to your wife Marco Luis Monstro.”
