Bob Harper: From The Biggest Loser to the Biggest Heart - Survivor & Thriver

Bob Harper: From The Biggest Loser to the Biggest Heart - Survivor & Thriver

January 12, 2019

Bob Harper. Need I say more? I LOVE BOB!

As a health and fitness expert and a best-selling author, Bob Harper inspired audiences nationwide to get fit on the hit show The Biggest Loser. He was the picture of health. Bob never considered that a heart attack could happen to him. But it did. “It was hugely shocking to me,” Bob reveals. “I learned a lot about myself.”

Bob was working out, as he did each day, when he lost consciousness. He woke up two days later and learned he’d had a near-fatal heart attack and had gone into cardiac arrest. He had to be shocked three times by an automated external defibrillator (AED) device to restart his heart.

Today, Bob is passionate about another kind of training: emotional recovery. While changes to his diet and exercise routine are an important part of his physical recuperation, Bob credits further education with helping him evolve his mindset and believes this plays an equally important role. That’s why he’s committed to help other survivors find the support and encouragement they need.
