Just three months ago, Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper reminded us all that heart attacks can happen to anyone. The shocking and surprising incident could have killed the 51-year-old had doctors not been at the gym to save him. But since embarking on his road to recovery, the fitness guru has proved that there's no shame in starting from square one as long as you're putting in the work.
Harper's efforts to gain back his health have slowly but surely started to pay off. The star recently took to Instagram to share a video of himself doing burpees for the first time since his cardiac arrest.
"I'm getting closer to coming back," he wrote in the post's caption. "I did some burpees in my rehab yesterday to get a feel and see how my heart rate responded. The top notch team there kept a very watchful eye on me. ONE DAY AT A TIME."

This isn't the first time Harper has used social media to share his journey towards recovery. The trainer has been keeping his fans in the loop about his progress over the past three months—whether that was a short walk on the treadmill or making major lifestyle changes, like introducing yoga into his workout regiment and switching to a Mediterranean diet.
Harper also recently tweeted about being able to take his first fitness class since his incident, making it a point to promote the location of the studio's Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The trainer has been on a mission to promote the need for gyms to have AEDs ever since one was used to save his life.
