“What does it mean to age well…it’s not about fitness, but about function…maintaining functional movements…for the body and the brain.”
In this episode of the MedFit Podcast, you will hear an amazing conversation with the 2020 MedFit Global Conference keynote speaker, Colin Milner. Milner, who is referred to as “a leading authority on the health and well-being of the older adult,” and has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as “one of the most innovative and influential minds in the world on aging-related topics,” openly shares his views on the state of health and fitness. Entering the fitness and wellness industry at age 21, Milner has devoted over two-thirds of his life teaching people what it means to “age well” and how to “create an environment for everyone to thrive.”
Listen closely as Milner describes his “9 Principles of Active Aging” that form the foundation of his message to influence government policy and international communities. From the White House to the World Health Organization to the National Institute on Aging, Colin Milner is out to provide “leadership for the older adult…so they can age well” and shift the perception of fitness from “something that is nice to have, to something that is a must have!” Colin Milner is a true leader, and it is no wonder that his speeches have stimulated thousands of business and government leaders, industry professionals and older adults worldwide.

There’s an undeniable correlation between the rising rates of chronic disease and the growing cases of COVID-19. With so many uncertainties in the medical industry as to how to curve this pandemic, what we do know is that exercise is medicine and that healthcare needs access to certified and trusted Medical Fitness Practitioners to prevent, treat or manage underlying conditions. Unfortunately, there is a dramatic shortage in this profession.
