When one thinks of a trainer, they think the epitome of health and someone who can’t possibly have a heart attack. Wrong. A lot is in genetics.
NBC’s “Biggest Loser” Bob Harper suffered a serious heart attack in New York City earlier this month while he was working out. He told TMZ that he collapsed and a doctor who was also in the gym performed CPR on him.
The 51-year old trainer’s mother died of a heart attack.
He has spent eight days in the hospital and is still not cleared yet to fly back to Los Angeles to his home.
No matter how healthy you think you are, it’s wise to have your heart checked regularly by a doctor.
