“Harper was raised on a cattle farm in Nashville, Tennessee before making his way to Los Angeles in pursuit of his dreams. It was a serendipitous meeting with a trainer that motivated Harper to get into the fitness industry. He received a fitness instructor’s certification from the American Fitness Training of Athletics Association and the Aerobic and Fitness Association of America,” it said.

“Now a decade later, Harper has developed his trademark brand of fitness and nutritional integration that leads to lasting lifestyle transformations.”

Besides his many other commitments, Harper appears on television shows such as The Dr. Oz show and The Tonight Show.

Harper has a reported net worth of $2 million.
