Founder, President, and CEO of the Cooper Aerobics Center

When Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., published his first bestseller,
Aerobics, in 1968, he introduced a new word and a new concept to America.
Millions of people started exercising, motivated by his preventive medicine
research, persuasive public appearances, and a series of inspiring books. In
short, a young Air Force physician who had once been a track star in his
native Oklahoma had started a worldwide fitness revolution.

By 1970 Dr. Cooper's dream was becoming a reality with the launch of The
Cooper Aerobics Center. The early clinic and research institute were housed
in a two-story Colonial style mansion, surrounded by 13 acres of landscaped
lawns and open space for the anticipated expansion. A gymnasium and exercise
facilities were added a year later, and in 1979 the medical and research
units moved next door into the newly constructed Cooper Clinic,
reestablishing the original building as an activity center. With more than
2,000 members by 1981, the Aerobics Activity Center (now Cooper Fitness
Center) flourished. The 1980s proved to be a time of significant growth with
the construction of The Guest Lodge hotel for travelers and the acquisition
of an adjacent building, which was renovated to house the nonprofit Cooper
Institute for Aerobics Research (now The Cooper Institute). Dr. Cooper next
developed an intensive live-in program, Cooper Wellness Program, offering
participants four-, six-, or 13-day sessions for total wellness assessment
and lifestyle modification. The 1990s brought additional development,
spreading Dr. Cooper's wellness goals across the 30-acre campus with the
creation of The Spa and, ultimately, across the world, with the inception of
Cooper Ventures consulting services. Bringing the Cooper message into the
new millennium, Cooper Concepts, developer of Cooper Complete nutritional
supplements, launched "Healthy Living with Dr. Ken Cooper," a nationally
syndicated radio show. Just a few years later, The Cooper Institute also
expanded to encompass a research facility in Denver, Colo.

Stretching his international reach, Dr. Cooper has lectured in over 50
countries and authored 18 books, which have been translated in 41 languages
and Braille and total more than 30 million copies sold. In Brazil, running
is called coopering or doing the cooper, and the cooperteszt is the national
fitness test in Hungary.

From the time of his first book in 1968, Dr. Cooper has advocated
revolutionizing the field of medicine away from disease treatment to disease
prevention through aerobic exercise. The Cooper philosophy, "It is easier to
maintain good health through proper exercise, diet, and emotional balance
than to regain it once it is lost," has been proven valid in scientific
research. Still receiving dozens of citations every year is The Cooper
Institute's 1989 landmark study, published in the renowned Journal of the
American Medical Association, showing the relationship between fitness and
mortality in some 13,000 patients.

Recognized for more than three decades as the leader of the international
physical fitness movement, Dr. Cooper is credited with motivating more
people to exercise in pursuit of good health than any other person. At The
Cooper Aerobics Center, as president and CEO, Dr. Cooper is supported by a
400-person staff in carrying out his mission to educate and encourage
optimum health in as many segments of the population as possible. Dr. Cooper
sets an example for maintaining a healthy lifestyle by exercising at the
Center on a regular basis, and his wife Millie, daughter Berkley, and son
Tyler may also be seen coopering.
