SINGAPORE - Kenneth Koh may be 49 but he is still keen on pushing himself to his physical limit.

The former pilot and adventure athlete's eyesight and strength have deteriorated since he was first featured in the Hot Bods column in The Sunday Times on Jan 9, 2005 but he still maintains a disciplined exercise regimen.

In fact, he even climbed Mount Everest three years ago.

"I'm still pretty strong and coordinated. I can do all the sports that I want to do," he said.

Find out more about how he keeps himself fit and busy in 100 Hot Bods, an e-book launched on July 27 in The Straits Times Star (ST Star) app.

The e-book is a compilation of photos and interviews with 100 of the fittest people profiled in the 10-year-old Hot Bods series in The Sunday Times.

It is available for free download for iPad and Android devices.

Koh is one of three "Hot Bods" the paper re-interviewed for the book.

Readers can watch videos of them describing how they maintain their healthy lifestyles.

The book also includes almost 40 pages of health and fitness tips to help readers eat right and get fit.
