In 1970, the aerobics concept moved from the printed page to bricks and mortar with the opening of Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas. Now, more than 50 years later, Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, and his son, Tyler C. Cooper, MD, MPH, have expanded their healthy-living mission to create Cooper Aerobics and its seven health and wellness entities.
Through the array of services Cooper offers, millions have been inspired to make good health a habit to live longer, healthier and more productive lives.
The Cooper Institute
Founded to prove exercise is medicine, The Cooper Institute® 501(c)(3) is dedicated to research, youth education and advocacy. Our Cooper Center Longitudinal Study, a world-renowned study of measured fitness, contains 2.2 million+ person-years of observation. The Cooper Institute has proven higher fitness levels to be associated with a dramatic decrease of dying from all causes as well as a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, dementia and certain cancers. The Cooper Institute advocates for healthy living to millions of children across the U.S. through its youth initiatives: FitnessGram®, Healthy Zone School Recognition Program® and NFL Play 60 FitnessGram Projects.
