Bob Harper is one of the most well-known fitness experts in the world thanks to his seventeen seasons as a trainer on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” but his world came to a stop when he suffered a heart attack in 2017. The attack was a result of genetics—something no one can change—but it nevertheless served as a wake-up call to Bob.

Since then, Harper has redoubled his efforts to promote physical well-being to his millions of fans and beyond, but with an added emphasis on the almost 50% of Americans who have some form of heart disease—the leading cause of death in the United States. He's been working with the Survivors Have Heart initiative to promote healing, health, and wellness among those who have survived heart attacks.
