Greg Plitt, born George Plitt Jr, had featured on over 200 magazine covers, primarily fitness magazines.
His workout videos on YouTube regularly attracted millions of viewers.
More recently he had appeared in Bravo’s reality television programme Work Out.
He also had parts in Robert DeNiro’s The Good Shepherd and Terminator 4, starring Christian Bale.
Editor-in-chief of Muscle & Fitness magazine Shawn Perine tweeted: “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Greg Plitt.
“In his short time here he lived life as fully as one could. An inspiration.”
It is not immediately clear what the group had been filming, although some reports suggest it was an advert for a protein shake.
