Behind the Scenes

Dr. Cooper Makes a House Call

This morning, I met Dr. Kenneth Cooper, our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and our keynote speaker at the show. He was as warm and focused on fitness in person as he was when I interviewed him over the phone this summer for the profile about him in the September issue.

He spoke to a packed room (Stuart will blog about his presentation a bit later). After the keynote ended, he stuck around for another hour answering questions. I finally had to pull him away from the crowd so he wouldn't miss his car to take him back to the airport.

Lots of fans of Dr. Cooper in the room today. I guess you could say I'm one of them now, too.
