The Biggest Loser host/fitness expert 51-year-old Bob Harper is recovering from a heart attach he had two weeks ago while exercising at a NYC gym. Fortunately a nearby doctor who was also working out saved Harper’s life with CPR and paddles, according to TMZ.
Harper woke two days later, was hospitalized for 8 days, and remains in NYC until doctors give him the green-light to return to his Los Angeles home.
Harper attributes his heart attack to family genes. His mom passed away from a heart attack.
Currently walking is the only exercise Harper is allowed to do.
Best wishes towards a full recovery for Bob! Get well soon!!!
