I am not sure if you have heard, but the great modern fitness trainer Bob Harper suffered a heart attack a couple weeks ago.
“The Biggest Loser” trainer is currently undergoing his own health crisis: Harper, 51, experienced a serious heart attack two weeks ago, and has been quietly recovering.
Bob Harper’s mom passed away several years ago from a heart attack. So he is well aware how close and dangerous heart problems can be in his own life,
According to the American Heart Association, children of parents with heart disease are more likely to develop it themselves. Men have a greater risk of heart attack than women do, and are more likely to experience attacks earlier in life.
Don’t worry, Bob Harper is recovering well as you can see from this tweet

This is amazing news most people would think. Bob Harper is not only a TV fitness trainer on the Biggest Loser but also is a big fan and competitor in Crossfit. This guy is in fantastic shape.
So you have to ask, How can Bob Harper have a heart attack?
Well from his own words it seems that there is more to health than just exercising and eating right. Bob has a history of heart problems in his family. A genetic problem like this can affect anyone, no matter who it is. I would bet that Bob will argue until he is blue in the face that the best bet in anyones life is to eat well and exercise to avoid a heart attack as well as to avoid other disease and live a life of great health
Poor Bob Harper, I remember when Biggest Loser first started he was everyones favorite trainer. Bob always wants to be friends with the contestants, he cares how they feel and most of all Bob really wants to see everyone do well and feels hurt himself when people struggle with weight loss.
Well this year it looks like the tables have turned. Although the Biggest Loser couples would not have seen this last season when Bobs team did not do well for the first time since the Biggest Loser started but the producers of the Biggest Loser moved even farther into showing Bob Harper teaching the crew about Yoga and meditation. . Bob says that once you are in control of your mind then you will be able to lose the . I totally agree with Bob but it seems this seasons team has had a bit of a shift in focus. Everyone wanted to train with mean old Jillian.
I have lost count of the number of people that have lost over 100 pounds on the Biggest Loser, there have probably been more then 10 so far. The Biggest Loser is definitely a numbers game and now instead of just hoping to lose a lot of the contestents are a bit scared that they will not be able to keep up.
So here is the decision in the head of a person that starts on the Biggest Loser. I can train with Bob, he is a nice guy and will help me lose or I can train with that pit bull that is Jillian. I better pick Jillian so that I can lose the for sure.
I know that it is not fair, Bob Harper has always been the star of the Biggest Loser because he has gotten results out of people while at the same time building them up to be emotionally better then before. I know from watching the show these past few years that he pushes people in the gym and kitchen as hard as Jillian and is successful at doing so,
If I was on the show I think I would pick Bob to be my trainer. Lets see which trainer wins this season.
