On January 17, 2015, fitness trainer and model Greg Plitt was tragically killed by a train in Burbank, CA. TMZ has a little about what happened linked here.
Greg was well known around the fitness industry for being on the cover of many fitness magazines and for his television appearances.
I had the privilege of meeting Greg two different times at past Los Angeles Fit Expo events. May the fitness icon rest in peace.
Sam Cassell made an appearance at the Optometry Practice of Dr. Alex Corbin Liu. The event was a private signing for patients and people who purchased a minimum number of autograph tickets.
The 3x NBA Champion was very nice to all fans in attendance. He took his time meeting and greeting everyone and appeared to have a good time.
Sam’s playing career is over but he’s still involved in the NBA. He currently serves as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers.
After hitting big shots, Sam frequently did what I call, “the ball juggling dance.”
