Bob Harper is on the road to recovery after suffering a serious heart attack a few weeks ago.

The 51-year-old host of “The Biggest Loser” reportedly had the heart attack while he was working out in New York City about two weeks ago. A doctor, who happened to be working out nearby, performed CPR and used paddles to save Harper’s life, according to reports. Harper was actually unconscious for two days, and he remained hospitalized for 8 days in total.  

Harper, who calls Los Angeles home, remains in New York because doctors have not cleared him for any air travel just yet. Doctors have also ordered that the fitness guru limits his exercise only to walking for the time being. Harper believes he had the heart attack simply because of genetics. His mother died of a heart attack.

Here’s to a speedy recovery, Bob!
