Legends Never Die
I got into the fitness industry awhile back and Greg Plitt had a lot to do with it. I remember seeing him on covers back in the mid 2000’s and from that point on he was my go to inspiration.
Looking back, I’d often watch his videos before I’d go lift. His videos were awesome because they were real and authentic. Not to mention, they were motivating as F$#*.
I was forunte enough to meet him on a couple of occasions at the Arnold and the Olympia. He’d always have the longest lines at the expos and believe it or not, he’d stay until the end taking pics and answering people’s questions.

For those that are unaware, Greg passed January 2015. The world lost one of the top dogs in the industry. He was truly irreplaceable and I’ll do my part to keep his legacy strong.
It’s the perfect opportunity to step back and realize you can’t take life for granted. Live it to the fullest and burn your path bright.

Your body is the house you force to live in for the rest of your life. You don’t get to sell, you don’t get foreclosure, you can’t do a quick sale. All you can do is to modify and improve it. Or you can tarnish it. One house to live in, man. What kind of house do you want to live in? – Greg Plitt
