Working Out With Bob Harper

A few weeks before BlogHer, I got an email from BlogHer’s Events about promotions with some of their sponsors during the conference.  They were offering an early morning workout with Bob Harper on Saturday morning.  Bob Harper was going to be at the conference on behalf of Quaker.  If you don’t know who Bob Harper is, well he is kind of a big deal on that little TV show, The Biggest Loser.

Bob Harper-BlogHer11'Doesn’t he look ready to work out? Well he was. Bob was ready to start working out right away. He was not messing around. I kinda love the black shoes and orange laces combo.
Workout with Bob Harper at BlogHer11'Bob had us stretching and “pushing” outselves through the entire workout. I may have whined a little. He called me “party girl” throughout the workout. Honestly, I was not hung over, just really tired. Everyone looks so athletic in this picture.  And it was barely 7am. Bob went around and was making sure that everyone was doing the “moves” properly.  This is no faux-workout. It was hardcore. I was sore the next day.
BlogHer11'-San DiegoWe had a beautiful view of the waterfront from the rooftop area that we were on. I had to take a picture while we were up there.  I’m probably the only one who brought their DSLR with them to the workout.Renee Ross and Bob HarperRenee Ross got up close and personal with Bob during the workout. I think she was his “chosen one” that day. Honestly, Renee was a perfect choice. She kicks butt! And man, they both have some great balance. My quads and calves hurt, just from looking at this picture.
Quaker Oatmeal and Bob Harper Workout Group at The Biggest LoserWe were able to get a group shot of everyone who was present for the early morning workout.  Bob Harper was hiding in the middle of everyone.

If I had a “Life List”, working out with Bob would probably be on it. I wish Bob could be my personal trainer, because I think I would be a bit more motivated.

Disclosure: I attended a workout with Bob Harper sponsored by Quaker. I received a yoga mat, towel, and a DVD. I was not paid cash for this post. All of the thoughts and ramblings are mine. And really, I should have paid them for the great workout. But honestly, Bob Harper probably charges a whole lot of money for his training sessions and I could not afford him otherwise. So Thanks to BlogHer and Quaker.

Love your pictures! What a neat opportunity. I LOVE the biggest loser. He seems like he is super nice in person too from your pictures.

He was super nice. And was acting like a trainer rather than a celebrity. He went around and made sure that everyone was doing things right, etc.
