Fitness star Greg Plitt dies trying to outrun a speeding train in a commercial video

Bravo's "Work Out" fitness star Greg Plitt was attempting to pull off a dangerous thrill seeking stunt  just to sell sports drinks when he was hit and killed by a commuter train.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Plitt was shooting a commercial for a new sports drink near the Burbank, CA Metrolink station -- when he attempted to outrun an oncoming train.

Sources close to Plitt say he had worked out near the tracks many times before -- but this shoot turned tragic when he tripped and fell on the tracks ... and couldn't recover in time to get out of the way.

As for why he was on the same track as the speeding train, our sources say Plitt was a highly driven adrenaline junkie. A promotional video for his website is especially eerie now  since the whole thing was shot in the shadow of a rail yard.

His girlfriend Christina Stejskal told the LA Times he was 'just trying to get the best shot.' 'He wanted to push things to the limit,' said a weeping Stejskal in an interview on Monday.
'He's just like Superman.'
