A month after Greg Plitt died in a train accident, his longtime friend and Bravo costar Melanie Marden opens up to PEOPLE about the fitness pro's "incredible" life.
"He was one of a kind for sure," says Marden, who first met Plitt back in 2008 when she began dating his roommate. "We got to spend a lot of holidays together and he just became a staple in my L.A. family."
While Plitt, 37, was famous for his love of fitness, Marden says he wasn't an adrenaline junkie, although she admits some of his stunts were pretty wild.
"If anything we were like, 'Oh God, Greg is crazy, he'll jump out of planes, he'll jump out of buildings ...' I can't imagine risking my life so many times, but he wanted to live life to the fullest, and he did. No one can ever judge him for that."
