A man who inspired millions.
Beginning weight training in his home gym at the tender age of 12, Greg Plitt developed a passion for fitness rather early. He followed in his sister’s footsteps after high school to pursue a career in the army where he became both Airborne and Ranger qualified. But after a five-year stint in the military, Plitt returned home to build a career in the health and fitness industry, and build a career he did.
By the year 2012, Gregg’s physique had developed into something so awe-inspiring that he modelled for some of the top brands in the world. These included Under Armour, Calvin Klein and Old Navy Jeans on top of magazine covers for Maxim, Men’s Fitness and FitnessRx men. To even further pad his already impressive resume, he was the official brand ambassador for the MET-Rx supplement company and a spokesperson for Thierry Mugler’s Angel men and Ice men’s fragrances.
Eventually, Plitt’s physique became so renowned that his body was displayed throughout all forms of media on a regular basis. It wasn’t long before many men across the globe viewed his physique as the ideal goal to build towards. Even with his fame, Plitt remained influential in the fitness world. Being a great motivator and enthusiast, many fitness fanatics looked up to Gregg as a top athlete who encouraged them to begin weightlifting and build themselves towards a healthy and fit lifestyle.
On January 17th 2015, Plitt’s undoubted prosperity was cut short as a horrific train incident resulted in his death.
Plitt may be gone, but he will always be remembered as a fitness model who inspired millions of people to get fit and improve their wellbeing.
