Who Are the Tren Twins?

The Tren Twins were born Christian and Michael Gaiera on April 2, 2001, in Michigan. They spent part of their childhood in a Christian foster care home, as their mother was struggling with alcohol addiction. 

They attended high school in St. Claire Shores, MI, and Madonna University in Livonia, MI, for their undergraduate degrees. Michael studied for a degree in data analytics, while Christian was pre-med. Furthermore, they played college football during this time. 

The twins started working out at an early age: They started lifting weights at 13 and began a serious bodybuilding journey at 17. The brothers are now 23 years old.

They posted their first video on YouTube in August 2022, a gym vlog simply titled TrenTwin Push Day. Since then, they have accumulated over 1.3 million subs on YouTube, 1.9 million followers on TikTok, and 1.7 million followers on Instagram.

Why Are the Tren Twins Famous?

The Tren Twins’ rise to social media fame was lighting-fast. In the course of less than two years, they grew an audience base that took other major creators over a decade to cultivate. 

Part of the twins’ appeal is their insane workout routine. They regularly share videos focused on training and growing particular muscle groups, and the diet they stick to in order to achieve their impressive results. 

Guess who’s back – back day again.

Plus, they also regularly upload seasonally themed videos, often with a touch of humor. For Halloween, they worked out dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and to mark the start of the holiday season, they celebrated “Gainsgiving”. 

Happy Halloween! And jokes about going trick-or-treating with steroids.

All of their videos are infused with a solid gym bro culture, with the two brothers motivating each other. Naturally, they’re constantly trying to figure out which Tren Twin is stronger.

What’s the Tren Twins' Net Worth?

Currently, the twins’ combined net worth is estimated at around $2 million

Their various income streams are composed of YouTube ad income, sponsorships, and merch sales

In terms of ad revenue, they can currently boast over 93 million cumulative views. The fitness niche is also one of the most profitable YouTube niches out there, with a CPM of $1.60. 

As for sponsors: On their Instagram, the brothers list Marek Health, Hummus Fit, and Youngla as their main sponsors. 

Finally, there is the Tren Twin merch. They’re successfully selling a variety of hoodies and shirts on their own Trentech online store. 

What Are the Tren Twins On?

Finally, one of the most frequent questions fans ask is: Do the Tren Twins take steroids

The answer, at least according to the twins, is “No.” They’ve stated repeatedly that the results of their workout gains are natty – all-natural. In fact, they recently released a video that specifically advises viewers against taking anabolic steroids

PSA from the Tren Twins: Don’t do ‘roids.

The twins do, however, frequently showcase their anabolic diets and protein-loaded meals

One thing that needs to be noted: The “Tren” in the name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the steroid Trenbolone – as well as a play on “train”.

FAQs

Twin brothers Christian and Michael Gaiera were born on April 2, 2001. They’re currently 23 years old.

According to the twins themselves, they’re natty – all-natural. They’ve repeatedly denied the use of anabolic steroids. 

No, but they did spend part of their childhood in a Christian foster care home, as their mother was struggling with alcohol addiction. 

Mike is 5’6’’ and Chris is slightly taller, at 5’7’’. Their weight varies, but currently lies at around 220 lb, or 100 kg.
