Fitness expert, reality TV star Greg Plitt killed by train in California.

A 37-year-old model featured on the cover of numerous fitness magazines was struck and killed by a train while filming on the tracks in Southern California, authorities said. George Plitt Jr and two other men were filming north of the Burbank train station on Saturday afternoon when Plitt was hit by a southbound train carrying 185 people, Burbank Police Sgt Scott Meadows said. Plitt starred on Bravo’s ‘Work Out’ between 2006 and 2008, and was in another just-premiered reality show for the network, ‘Friends to Lovers,’ with his long-time friend, the fitness star Melanie Marden.

The actor and West Point graduate has appeared on more than 200 magazine covers, Bravo’s reality television show “Work Out” and “Friends to Lovers” and NBC’s daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives,” according to a website in Plitt’s name. He recorded commercials for MTV, Under Armour and Gold’s Gym, and worked as a model for Calvin Klein, Thierry Mugler and Under Armour among other brands and media outlets.

Canales said detectives are still interviewing witnesses, and are still trying to determine what led up Plitt’s death, but suicide has been ruled out. Meanwhile on Sunday friends took to Twitter and other social media outlets to remember Plitt, who had been featured in Bravo’s series “Work Out” and “Work Out In The Zone,” as well as in numerous commericals and other programs. My prayers go to his loved ones.” Former professional football player Joe Donnelly also weighed in, saying, “To simplify Greg Plitt as the top fitness model, actor and motivator would be equivalent in saying Michael Jordan was a guy that played some basketball.” Donnelly said Plitt “inspired millions worldwide with his intensity, passion, charisma and amazing ability ‘light a fire’ in even the coldest of souls.” (©2015 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc.
