Bob Harper is in recovery after suffering from a heart attack, WHO confirms.
The 51-year-old Biggest Loser trainer and host was reportedly working out at a New York City gym two weeks ago when he collapsed. A doctor exercising at the gym performed CPR before Harper was moved to a nearby hospital, where he remained unconscious for two days, according to TMZ. He was released from the hospital after an eight day stay.
The personal trainer, who has a series of workout DVDs and online programs on Daily Burn, along with his work on The Biggest Loser, said that his heart attack was due to genetics, and his mom died early from a heart attack.
Harper posted a photo of a candle on Instagram last Wednesday, with the caption, “My word of the day… LUCKY.”
Harper has since taken to Instagram to share an update on his health.
"Well I guess you all heard what happened. Two weeks ago yesterday I had a heart attack. I am feeling better," he wrote.
"Just taking it easy. KARL has been a great nurse. I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of messages and support. It feels good to be cared about. I've been home for 8 days now. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I'm lucky to have such good friends and family to take care of me right now. ❤
