What seems commonplace today was groundbreaking back in 1968 when Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, transformed the field of medicine with his emphasis on disease prevention; and ignited the modern fitness revolution with his international best-selling book Aerobics.
In 1970, Dr. Cooper moved to Dallas to further his scientific research on fitness and reinforce its scientific legitimacy. With a singular vision to improve the quality and quantity of people’s lives through prevention, he founded The Cooper Institute and Cooper Clinic, the first in a family of seven health and wellness entities now known as Cooper Aerobics Center.
Today Dr. Cooper—known as the “father of aerobics”—is 90 years old, still seeing patients and speaking across the globe sharing his proven philosophy that exercise is medicine and fitness is a vital sign.
