The Biggest Loser's Bob Harper Was Hospitalized After a Heart Attack

Bob Harper, the fitness guru who was a trainer on and later the host of weight-loss competition The Biggest Loser, suffered a heart attack two weeks ago, according to TMZ.

Harper, 51, was working out at a gym in New York City when he collapsed. A doctor who also happened to be in the gym performed CPR and even used a defibrillator to keep Harper alive. He was taken to a hospital, where he was unconscious for two days.

Harper spent eight days before being released. For now, doctors are limiting his exercise regimen to walking.

Harper's fans wished him well on social media.

My love to you in this time, @MyTrainerBob. You represent hope and motivation for so many.

Get well, @MyTrainerBob! If you start going toward a light, we're all coming after you to yank you back like a rainbow Poltergeist! https://twitter.com/tlrd/status/836253351838945280 

Harper blames genetics for the heart attack, since his mother died from a heart attack. It certainly didn't happen because he's out of shape.
