Trainer Bob Harper of NBC’s ‘The Biggest Loser’ is recovering from a serious heart attack

Fitness trainer Bob Harper of NBC’s The Biggest Loser is recovering from a serious heart attack that left him unconscious for two days.

Harper, 51, collapsed while working out at a gym in New York City two weeks ago. TMZ reports that a doctor who was also working out administered CPR and used paddles to keep Harper alive.

Harper’s mom died of a heart attack and he says it is genetics that led to his.

His exercise is currently limited to walking as he waits for doctors to clear him to fly home to Los Angeles.

Harper came out publicly on an episode of the show in 2013 while he was working with a gay contestant who had not yet come out to his father.

‘I thought it was really important for me to come out,’ he told me in 2014.

‘I’d been on my show for so many seasons and I had never found a relevant time to talk about it until I had a gay person on the show who was really, really suffering with a lot of self-loathing. I just wanted him to know that it’s okay to be gay and I decided I needed to come out at that moment and it’s been great ever since.’

He added: ‘People have been very supportive – mostly. It’s been nice. The more upfront and honest you can be with the public, the more welcoming they are.’

My word of the day… LUCKY
