Los Angeles: 'Biggest Loser' trainer and host Bob Harper recently suffered a heart attack and is now on the path to recovery.
The 51-year-old took to Twitter, where he thanked his well-wishers for their prayers when he reportedly collapsed while working out at a New York City gym two weeks ago, reported People magazine.
"As you've heard, I had a heart attack two weeks ago. I'm on the mend now and want to thank everyone for the outpouring of messages and support," Harper wrote, along side a picture of him with his pet pooch Karl.
A doctor exercising at the gym performed CPR before the personal trainer was moved to a nearby hospital, where he remained unconscious for two days, as per reports.
He was released from the hospital after an eight day stay after which he said the heart attack occurred due to genetic issues.
Harper also put a picture on Instagram with a lit candle and captioned it as, "My word of the day... LUCKY."
