    Just recently one of my staff, Juan Guerrero, and I had an amazing opportunity to visit The Cooper Institute in Dallas,TX. We had a lengthy tour of the grounds and personally met Dr. Cooper, in his office where he spent unhurried time visiting with our group. I believe the following to be of interest to you.

    Who is the Cooper Institute and what do they do?

    The Cooper Institute (CI), established in 1970, is a 501.c.3. nonprofit research and education organization dedicated globally to preventive medicine. The Institute’s founder, Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., the “Father of Aerobics,” was an Air Force physician who became interested in the role of exercise in preserving health. When he published his first best seller, Aerobics, in 1968, he introduced a new word and was the spark for millions to become active. For More Information

    Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH is the Chairman Emeritus to the current Board of Trustees that oversees The Cooper Institute’s strategic direction and educational and research initiatives. A few of his many accolades include:

    • Author of the best-selling book, Aerobics, in 1968 and 19 subsequent book.
    • After founding The Cooper Institute, he later established the Cooper Clinic, Cooper Fitness Center, Cooper Hotel & Conference Center, Cooper Spa, Cooper Wellness, Cooper Consulting Partners, and Cooper Complete

    “Exercise is a journey, not a destination. It must be continued for the rest of your life” ~Dr. Kenneth Cooper
    However what really caused me to pause and consider was Dr. Cooper’s exceptional physical condition and emotional and mental state for the 20 minutes we were in his office. He’s 85 and I know it wasn’t just good genetics or by accident. I also know however old we are, it’s NEVER too late!

    Since I felt no impediment from the visit only affirmed!

    Dr. Cooper and his facility truly stood up to everything I have ever heard about him and this facility. When in the area be sure to to give him a visit! Or give us a call (361-549-4604) and WE will share OUR “cutting edge” knowledge with you.
