On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my Greg Plitt tribute and paying respect to my fitness inspiration.
I woke up this morning as if it was just like any other day.
As I was in the kitchen making my lemon water, I was quickly scrolling through my Instagram feed.
That’s when I saw a post, with the hashtag #RIPGregPlitt.
At first, I didn’t believe it because you see this all the time on Instagram or Twitter.
But then it was confirmed that Greg Plitt, the fitness icon, and one of the biggest fitness inspirations, had
suddenly passed away.
At the time of this video post, I read a news report that said Greg was hit by a train, while filming a video.
As a video creator, that really hits home for me.
Greg Plitt was the epitome of health, strength and fitness.
To me, he was different because he wasn’t just a guy with a great body.
I mean, there are so many people out there who have incredible bodies and physiques.
What made Greg Plitt different to me was he had the mindset of a warrior.
I remember the first time that I heard about Greg.
It was a buddy of mine at the gym who told me about this badass guy who was completely ripped.
Initially, I thought he’s probably just one of those guys that gets ripped for a photo shoot, and then for the other 364 days of the year he just lets himself live an average life.
But once I checked Greg out on the internet, and signed up for a membership on his website, I quickly realized there was just something different about him.
Sure he was ripped, but after I started to follow him, what really inspired me was that he maintained his physique all year-round.
Greg Plitt was one of the first people to show me that it was possible to Live Lean 365 days a year.
More importantly, what stood out to me most was that he was super intelligent, a natural motivator, and so freaking inspirational.
Just watching his videos make you want to be a better person inside and outside of the gym.
He practiced what he preached and was a true leader.
Even though Greg was only 37 years old, he made a bigger impact on the world in those 37 years, then 99% of the people who live to 75 or 80 years old.
That really hits home to me.
I used to say that one of my goals was to live to 120 years old.
Greg proved that, in his short life, it’s more important to live life to its fullest, and live life with meaning, regardless of how long you’re here for.
Greg did that.
So I just wanted to make this video post as a sign of respect to a legend and one of my true personal
Greg you left the world a better place man.
You had a huge impact on my career, and I absolutely salute you brother.
You will be missed, but you’ll never be forgotten my friend.
Lastly, I just want to say thank you.
R.I.P. Greg Plitt
