Fitness icon Greg Plitt, actor, model, entrepreneur and motivational speaker died Saturday after he was struck by a train.
The 37 year-old was hit by a Metrolink train in Burbank around 4PM … and according to KABC he was with some friends who may have been shooting video at the time.
One passenger reportedly said Plitt had a camcorder in his hands when he stumbled over the tracks.
Law enforcement tells us they believe Plitt was shooting a workout video at the time.
The incident is under investigation.
Greg Plitt has modeled for many companies, some including Calvin Klein, Old Navy and Under Armour. His body was also used to help create the physique of Dr. Manhattan in “The Watchmen.” He has appeared in over 250 magazines and many T.V appearances.
I’ve alway looked up to Greg and followed his website. He was a great speaker, just watching his videos would get me pumped to workout harder at the gym. One of goals that I’ve been struggling with is to gain 10lbs of muscle. That would put me at his weight at 195lbs.
My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. The lives he has saved by getting people to make better health decisions in his career is remarkable.
