Well-known German bodybuilder and YouTube fitness star Jo Lindner has died. He was just 30 years old.
Lindner, who was famous online and across the world in the bodybuilding community, had been a social media star respected for his intense commitment to bodybuilding and fitness. But over the weekend, he passed away suddenly. And now, we are learning that it happened in the arms of his fitness influencer girlfriend Nicha.
On Saturday, Nicha took to her Instagram account to confirm Lindner’s death. As she explained, the bodybuilder — who was popularly known on the internet as Joesthetics — had just given her a custom-made necklace as a gift. The duo was relaxing for a few hours then, before a planned gym workout, when tragedy struck without warning.
Writing about it on her IG page for her nearly 175,000 followers, Nicha explained:
“Jo is the best place everyone. Yesterday his past away by aneurysm .. I was there with him in the room.. he put on the necklace in my neck that he made for me .. than we was just lay down cuddle.. waiting the time to go meet Noel at the gym at 16.00 .. he was in my arms.. than this is just happening too fast.”
From there, she continued:
“3 days ago he kept said that he pain his neck .. we not really realize it… until it too late. At this moment I couldn’t write anything much. Trust me this man is more than what you ever know.. he so sweet kindness strong and HARD WORK MAN and loyalty and honesty smart.”

We can’t even begin to think what it must be like for Nicha to have witnessed her love die in her arms like that.
Our hearts truly break for her, and for Lindner’s loved ones, friends, and fans.
