Brett Mycles aka Bob Sager – It’s Been 5 Years

Brett Mycles (birth name Robert Christopher Sager) (December 2, 1977 – February 25, 2007) was a bodybuilder, a fitness model and an adult film star.

This week, he will have been gone 5 years.

IN 2007 we did a story about Brett on our New Gay Travel Guide. To this day, it is one our top Googled postings. And his step-father, allegedly, left comments on our site, about the circumstances surrounding his death, which happened in Chicago.

But to back up a bit,

He was born in Houston, Texas. He moved to Ohio and resided in the Los Angeles area. At age 22, while in Ohio, he entered an Arnold Classic bodybuilding contest where he was spotted by photographer, Irvin Gelb.

He became a successful muscle and fitness model, frequently appearing in such widely-read publications as Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Fitness (both founded by bodybuilding impresario, Joe Weider) & Men’s Workout, amongst others, as well as becoming a featured model for the International Male clothing catalog.

Adult film career

“Brett Mycles”, he gained fame as an adult film actor, achieving the
rarely attained feat of maintaining successful careers in both the
mainstream fitness and adult film industries simultaneously. He starred
in several adult films, mostly for Studio2000, primarily in solo and 
fantasy scenes, and posed nude in several adult magazines. He worked in
both same-sex and opposite-sex adult films. He also made regular
appearances on a webcam site for paying fans. In a 2005 interview, he
stated that he’d recently married his high school sweetheart, whom he
first met when he was 19 and she was 17.


He passed away in Chicago. He died in his sleep of heart failure on
February 25, 2007.

Weeks beforehand, family and friends report that he
complained of irregular heart beats and said that his family had a
history of heart problems. –

People  have alleged that his use, common among bodybuilders, of steroids and “fat-burner”
supplements, which sharply increase heart rates, may have increased his risk of heart failure. His step-dad seems to believe this is true.
