Sandy Krum from "Biggest Loser" is an athletic trainer and set medic on the NBC reality weight-loss competititon series.

Sandy Krum spent 25 years treating world-class athletes — which may explain why, when the oldest contestant to ever appear on “The Biggest Loser” fainted in the first episode of season seven, it was Krum who was there to catch him before he even hit the ground. In fact, before joining “The Biggest Loser,” Krum made quite a career out of preventing and caring for injuries.

He worked his way up the ranks through the world of professional sports, spending two decades working with clubs like the Cincinnati Reds, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Chicago Cubs. Along the way, he earned two "Athletic Trainer of the Year" awards and became a behind-the-scenes fixture in clubhouses across the globe.

Krum later expanded on his skills as an athletic trainer at the US Men's Open Tennis Tournament and while traveling on the USTA Men's Tour. His reputation as a first-class trainer also extends beyond the world of athletics. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan and the American Red Cross presented Krum with the Presidential Certificate of Merit for performing CPR and saving the life of a 14-year-old kid.

He draws on a vast body of knowledge collected both on the front lines of the high-paced world of professional sports and through more formal training. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in community health services/sports medicine from Ohio University where he graduated with honors. Krum is a also a certified licensed member of the National Athletic Trainers Association, holds CPR Certification from the American Red Cross, and earned an AED Certification from the American Heart Association.

He also previously acted as the athletic trainer on several other TV shows including NBC's “American Gladiators,” The N's “Student Body,” and “Losing It with Jillian Michaels.” So, in addition to his stellar credentials, Krum is fast becoming a star in the world of television as well.
