The sad passing of fitness guru Gregg Plitt shocked the fitness community worldwide. He was an icon and mentor for thousands and according to those that know also a very nice guy.
In a flash his life came to a halt while filming footage with some friends on train tracks for a protein shake. He was hit by a train and it was instantly fatal.
It again made me realize just how fragile our existence really is.
He had everything, money, fame and one of the best muscled physiques in the world but in an instant that meant nothing and his life was gone.
So let me get deep for a second – things like this should make one sit down and become deep about life…
I, myself was on the verge of death 10 years ago and since then I decided to be ready for when that moment comes and it sometimes comes quickly and unexpected as with Greg.
I have searched for the right mentor for my life since then. I need to live a life that has some meaning.
My search led me to the greatest mentor off all time, Jesus Christ. The way He lived, what He stood for, how he treated people and what He did is untouchable by any other person that has since walked this earth.
Even if you do not believe what He said, He is still a formidable mentor to follow.
And if it is true what He said it makes Him even so much more beautiful and amazing and awestruck!
Live a life that matters!
I pray for all the pain in the hearts of Greg’s family and friends.
You will be missed Greg and for evermore be an icon!

I agree! It is good to know that you love Jesus!
I do my best to lovingly tell people that God loves them so much that He sent His Son to shed His blood on the cross as payment for our sins. We can either trust completely in this as the only possible remedy for our separation from God or suffer eternal separation from God in Hell. Either we accept Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross as payment for our sins or we will pay for our sins eternally.
Once you understand how much God loves you, why would you not want to follow Christ and be in fellowship with God?
The momentary pleasures of sin in this life are not worth missing on an eternal relationship with the Almighty God Who loves us so!
I hope that Greg knew Jesus as His Saviour. I know that a lot of people in the fitness industry do.
God bless you and your family Brother!
