On Saturday, January 17, the health and fitness community lost one its greatest ambassadors when Greg Plitt was tragically struck by a train and killed. A graduate of West Point and a Ranger in the US Army, Plitt transitioned into the fitness industry in the early 2000s. Since then, the master motivator appeared on 10 FitnessRx For Men covers – more than anyone in history.
Joe Donnelly, one of Plitt’s contemporaries and close friends, said it best: “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. Greg inspired millions worldwide with his intensity, passion, charisma and amazing ability to “light a fire” in even the coldest of souls.”
In doing our part to honor and remember his life and the positive effect he had millions all over the world, we will take this week to look back on some of Greg’s work with FitnessRx over the years. Below are all 10 of Greg’s covers, the majority of which remain some of the top-selling issues of all-time.
Thank you Greg, for continuing to inspire us all.
