Seattle Performance Medicine was founded on preventive medicine and sports science in 2003. Since then we’ve developed two distinct paths:  one focusing on athletic and exercise performance and the other on metabolic health and performance.  In order to best serve our patients, Seattle Performance Medicine is now dedicated to athletic needs such as aerobic and anaerobic evaluation, strength testing, body composition and evaluation of overtraining syndrome. Please visit the Cooper Center for Metabolism, our new affiliate dedicated to the metabolic causes of obesity, infertility, type 2 diabetes and blood sugar dysregulation. Please note that our new location is north of Magnolia near Fisherman’s Terminal.

Visit Dr. Cooper’s new Center for Metabolism, watch Dr Cooper’s interviews, and read Dr. Cooper’s new book The Metabolic Storm: The science of your metabolism and why it’s making you FAT and possibly INFERTILE – All book proceeds are donated to the Diabesity Research Foundation, a 501 c3 nonprofit dedicated to increasing access to effective medical care for those suffering from Diabesity.

Nutrition is one of the most important components of health and fitness. Many conditions, such as diseases and injuries, fatigue, and ‘overtraining syndrome’ may be the result of suboptimal nutritional habits. We recommend prioritizing nutrition and eating a variety of foods rather than following fad diets. Athletes’ additional requirements focus on nutritional support of training and competition.


There is an athlete in every person! Whether just getting started or already an accomplished athlete, we emphasize training periodization to build and sustain improvements in performance. We provide assessment and guidance in aerobic and anaerobic training, strength training, core stability and injury prevention and treatment. Read about Vo2 Max testing in the Huffington Post.
