Greg Hill named one world’s 25 fittest men

Greg Hill, the local who climbed and skied two million vertical feet in 2010, was named one of Men’s Fitness‘ 25 most fit men of the year.

“I don’t believe it but I’ll take it,” said the 35-year-old father of two. “It’s not something I strived for but it should be a fun thing to put on my resume.”

Hill is dubbed ‘The Adventurer’ by in the June/July issue Men’s Fitness. A photo and brief article appears in the magazine, above soccer legend David Beckham and actor Jason Momoa, who is slated to take over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role in the remake of Conan the Barbarian.

Also on the list are actors Kellan Lutz, Bradley Cooper and Chris Evans, NBA superstar Lebron James and rapper Dr. Dre.

Hill’s write-up says his feat is unlikely to be broken. He credits his mental toughness in the article.

“You gotta have complete faith,” he told Men’s Fitness. “You can be the fittest person in the world, but if you don’t believe you can do it, it’s not gonna happen.”

The issue, which features Vin Diesel on the cover, is on newstands now.
