Web Exclusive: Download a worksheet from Cooper Wellness Program that will help you identify your goals and find ways to reach them
The Cooper Wellness Program in Dallas is like behavior modification boot camp. It’s a condensed encyclopedia of all things good for you. Last year, I spent six days focused on health, nutrition, and fitness at the tree-shaded, 30-acre campus established by Dr. Kenneth Cooper, the man who introduced the aerobics concept―and launched a fitness revolution―in America in 1968.
Each 4-, 6-, or 13-day program is chock-full of workshops, group exercise, cooking classes, and personal training sessions. I opted for the 6-day session, and at week’s end, I had a 2-inch binder filled with advice and recipes. I had a memorable experience. I had a wealth of knowledge. And I had a daunting task: Share these riches in one story.
