Dr. Ken Cooper


This guy is amazing! I was on a panel with him yesterday and attended a presentation he gave last night, but more amazing was the hour shuttle ride to airport this morning. This is a man who has worked all his life to shift the paradigm in medicine from treatment of disease to prevention of disease. He is now in his late 70’s and full of energy and passion. My thing has never been general fitness, but over the past several years I have become increasingly concerned with the decline in general fitness in all age groups, the rise of obesity and the alarming epidemic of diabetes. Dr Cooper is trying to do something about it. I certainly am going to pay a lot more close attention to his work. This man has spent over forty years collecting and studying data on exercise. His data is a gold mine of information that if applied could have a profound effect on changing some of the alarming trends we are seeing today.
If is so great to be able to meet someone with this passion and knowledge. It certainly was inspiration to see how fit and mentally sharp he has kept himself.
