Dr. Oz's Personal Trainer Joel Harper starts his day with Pines

There’s a reason Pines fan Joel Harper is a celebrity personal trainer to clients like Dr. Oz. and Olympic medalists. His clients say that his custom workouts produce immediate results.

Harper regularly works with well-known actors preparing for new roles, musicians embarking on world tours and business executives desiring increased energy and strength. Featured in publications from "O" magazine and Esquire, he has created all of the personal workout chapters for the New York Times best-selling YOU: books series and the accompanying workout DVDs with Drs. Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen as well as the popular FIT PACK DVD. His workouts have also been featured on ABC & Fox News, Oprah, The Dr. Oz. Show, Good Morning America and Larry King. He’s the creator of the PBS best selling DVD, FIRMING AFTER 50 and SLIM & FIT.

But fitness is just one component to Harper’s approach to well-being. In his most recent book Mind Your Body, he explores the connection between meals, moves and mindset. His three-step weight-loss program is designed to significantly help people with weight loss, to maximize their workouts and boost happiness and energy levels—in just fifteen minutes a day. He says all the conflicting information in  fitness and nutrition books in the market inspired him to write Mind Your Body. The book’s intention is to be self-empowering, perfect for people who have given up on dieting that doesn’t work and are hitting weight-loss plateaus, and are ready to finally achieve health and happiness. 

Starting his day with the whole-food nutrition found in Pines WheatGrass products is a morning ritual for Harper. Not only does he start his day with smoothies made with Pines WheatGrass, Barley Grass, Alfalfa or Beet Juice Powder, but he also shares the products with his clients. Many professional athletes, including world champion Spartan racers rely on nutrition from our products to fuel their workouts, and help them with endurance. 

Fitness and eating well is a life-long passion for Harper. Originally from Texas, he earned a BS from NYU. Getting into shape was a necessary component of his modeling career, which catapulted him to featured appearances in magazines, calendars and billboards in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Staying in shape and motivating others to do the same is now a way of life.

Harper’s workouts are available for purchase from his website. Below is an AB Blasting Workout from Mind Your Body.
