The Biggest Loser host Bob Harper, 51, suffered a heart attack on Feb. 12, but reports he is “feeling better” and “taking it easy” now.


Harper made a statement Monday after the news was released. He told TMZ that he collapsed while working out at the gym in New York City and a doctor present at the scene performed CPR on him. He was unconscious for two days following, and spent eight days in the hospital.

Harper has been a part of NBC reality show The Biggest Loser for all 17 seasons it was on the air. He was a trainer from 2004-2016, when he became host.

“Well I guess you all heard what happened,” his Facebook post began. “Two weeks ago yesterday I had a heart attack. I am feeling better. Just taking it easy. KARL has been a great nurse. I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of messages and support. It feels good to be cared about. I’ve been home for 8 days now. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I’m lucky to have such good friends and family to take care of me right now.”
