Our Community Impact

View All Section Pages

Cooper Aerobics has been an integral part of the Dallas community since 1970. Since that time, Dr. Kenneth Cooper has made it a priority to make Cooper Aerobics a generous community partner.

As a result of the company's corporate responsibility and public health efforts to improve the community, Cooper Aerobics was selected as the the winner of the Community Commitment Award by the 2011 Texas Family Business of the Year Awards program, hosted by Baylor University.

Dr. Cooper always says "People are more concerned about how much we care than how much we know," which is why our motto is Cooper Cares. Our Cooper Cares mission to "exceed expectations, touching the lives of all we encounter" can be seen in every aspect of our organization through the integrity, teamwork and service of our teammates and through our corporate responsibility efforts.
