Fitness Model Struck And Killed By Train In Southern California.

Fitness model and television actor Greg Plitt was struck and killed by a commuter train in Burbank, California, on Saturday while filming on the tracks, police said on Sunday.Two men were filming Greg on a railway track north of Burbank station on Saturday afternoon when the 37-year-old was hit by a southbound Metrolink train.

According to Los Angeles television station, KABC, the former Calvin Klein model was filming with friends near the tracks of the regional train service at the time of the incident, It’s not clear what he was shooting, but at least one workout video posted on Plitt’s website show the fitness guru exercising near or on Metrolink tracks. The Baltimore-born actor and model appeared on 250 fitness magazine covers and was “undisputedly America’s #1 male fitness model,” according to Pitt’s website. Bravo veteran Andy Cohen tweeted about the loss on Jan. 18, writing, “We couldn’t take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on ‘Work out’ – was as nice as he was beautiful. Investigators, who interviewed witnesses who saw Plitt standing on the track even as the train’s horn was blaring, have ruled out a suicide, he said.

The muscular actor and West Point graduate has appeared on more than 200 magazine covers, Bravo’s reality television show Work Out and NBC’s daytime soap opera Days Of Our Lives, according to a website in Greg’s name. Plitt was an actor on the “Days of Our Lives” daytime TV drama and was seen in several movies, including “The Good Shepherd” and “Terminator Salvation,” according to the website. The pop singer, 39, who has previously expressed her desire not to become famous, wore thick black lace, which hung off her glasses and covered her face to sing her hits “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.” While she sang “Chandelier,” a mime performed sign language next to her, and during “Elastic Heart,” Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler and another female dancer did an interpretive dance around her.

He was sponsored by several fitness companies and the nutritional-supplement company MET-Rx, which on Sunday expressed sadness about his death on Twitter. “With profound sorrow, we acknowledge that the world has lost a true inspiration,” MET-Rx tweeted. “You will be remembered, and forever missed, @GregPlitt.”
