Bob Harper

Lose weight with NBC's Biggest Loser blue team coach.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Having a personal trainer means working really hard and lots of discipline. The reward is that you always picture yourself with the dreamy trainer - so that makes up for it. With Bob Harper, you get the entire package - a good-looking, personable trainer who is dedicated to helping you realize your full potential. Bob has many years of experience and is certified with several notable fitness organizations.

Bob became a household name and put his mark on the fitness landscape by being one of the wildly popular trainers on NBC's hit show The Biggest Loser. The spring of 2008, Bob continued his success as one of the most respected trainers in the world with the publication of his book "Are You Ready! To Take Charge, Lose Weight, Get in Shape and Change Your Life." The book is a well-rounded and smart approach to managing the emotional side of weight, nutritious eating and regular exercise and physical activity.

Bob has a true passion for his work - and you get to reap the benefits. Exercise is usually as fun as dental work and watching paint dry. However, Bob Harper's practical advice, friendly disposition and consistent motivation make him a valuable partner.

PRO
  • Access to Bob through variety of media
  • Positive and motivating
  • Admits that not everyone will achieve the results featured on Biggest Loser
  • All programs are affordable
  • Begin transformation on the inside and work outward
  • Certified with American Fitness Training of Athletics and with Aerobics and Fitness Association of America
  • Trusted and respected fitness professional
CON
  • Bob's programs are not customizable
DIET and NUTRITION

On Biggest Loser, he promotes his Eat More Diet. He suggests that all of that food you might be cutting out could be the answer to why you're not losing weight. Your body needs certain calories and nutrients to function properly and become less dependent on fat stores. Bob suggests that by consuming between four and six smaller meals throughout the day, you'll be able to beat hunger before it starts. You'll consume a diet that is low calorie and low carb. Portion control is also important, since you can always have too much of a good (or bad) thing. An example of a day on Bob Harper's Eat More Diet could be: - Breakfast Five egg whites with turkey bacon

  • Morning Snack: Slice of deli chicken with string cheese and mustard

  • Lunch: Albacore tuna on a spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette

  • Afternoon Snack: Laughing Cow light cheese with a celery stick

  • Dinner: Grilled salmon with steamed asparagus and a tossed salad

EXERCISE

Bob is a trainer, so he is focused on exercise. Should you follow his DVD program through Push.tv, subscribe to the Biggest Loser Club or read his book, you can definitely expect to get moving. Exercise will vary on both programs with Biggest Loser being more customized to your needs.

Harper is also a big practitioner and promoter of yoga, and many of his workouts have a yoga concentration or influence.

CONCLUSION

Bob Harper is certainly making a name for himself in weight loss circles. While he's been a highly sought-after trainer in L.A. for years, working with names like Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Stiller, he's now more accessible than ever. Bob is a trainer on NBC's Biggest Loser, author of a weight loss book, star of several exercise DVDs and a featured speaker for many events. His approach to weight loss is practical and realistic. He motivates you to start by recognizing important changes on the inside and working toward the physical changes on the outside. Both the DVD videos and Biggest Loser are affordable, and both make losing weight a lot more fun than you've probably had before.

Bob Harper, my name is Karla. I am truly in need of your help. I am a 55 yr. young wife, mother and grandmother. The reason I'm writing to you is because I have had total knee surgery and I'm not able to do squats, knee bends or run. I have a limited range of motion in my right knee, at about 75, I truly do want to lose weight because I do know that I am overweight and have major health problems. Here is just a few of the health issues that I have to deal with on a daily basis. Asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic bronchitis, degenerative joint disease just to mention a few. There has to be some kind of exercise out there that I can do with limited mobility, so therefore I BEG of you to help me out. I want to continue to be here for my kids and my two adorable granddaughters. So Mr. Harper, if you can find it in your heart to help me in any way I will be FOREVER indebted to you.

You guys....this is not Bob's personal web page. This is a website dedicated to reviewing diets. You wouldn't leave a comment on a movie reviewers website saying, "Great movie George Lucas! Loved Star Wars!" THINK people. Think.

Hey Bob, I currently follow the weight watchers diet and have done pretty well at losing weight but I had a set back before the holidays with my father going into the hospital for a month and being there every day kept me from doing my exercises. He is home now and I am hoping to start back on a routine. Any suggestion to help me get back on track? I need a jumpstart again. I love you on the show too by the way! You are a great inspiration.

Hello Bob
I enjoy your program but I am wondering if you do a special program for people who are overweight and have disabilities. I am going for a knee replacement and would like to be able to do some exercises. I would love to see a big loser for people with disablities ( not just weight) Can you help.Thanks and keep up the good work.

Hey Bob,
I'll be going into 9th grade next year. In Mesa, AZ they have just moved the 9th grade up to High School, so there are only going to be around 200 9th graders going to Mesa High (long story). I'm going to try and join the schools track team because I'm 3rd fastest in hurdles and other speed events. I feel that I should start getting into better shape and just get ready for it. But I don't know what to do! Could you please help.
