Aerobics Celebrates 40th Anniversary
Date:3/25/2008

eek, the chances of dying from any cause is reduced by 58 percent and your life span increases by six years," he says.

A full program to start and maintain a healthy lifestyle at any age is outlined in Cooper's latest book Start Strong, Finish Strong -- the first collaboration with his son Dr. Tyler Cooper.

More recently, Cooper has turned his attention toward the nation's children. He started the Our Kids' Health initiative under The Cooper Institute to channel his education and legislative efforts.

In 2007, Cooper was instrumental in passing Senate Bill 530 in Texas requiring moderate to vigorous physical activity during physical education class for Kindergarten through 8th grade students. The law also requires the state's 3rd through 12th graders undergo The Cooper Institute's FITNESSGRAM(R) test that measures students' physical fitness to determine their overall health.

"We are seeing unprecedented levels of obesity and type II diabetes among children and adolescents. If these problems continue, this will be the first generation in which parents will outlive their children," says Dr. Cooper. "Increasing the fitness of students will not only better their health, but also raise their academic performance."

At age 77, exercising five days a week and the grandfather to four young ones, Dr. Cooper is as passionate about the future of youth as he was about Aerobics for adults.

"Hopefully, improving the health of our children will be my legacy," Cooper says. "Our next generation deserves to live a life full of happiness, not one of limitations or health problems. That starts with you and me."
