Cooper Founds Wellness Community

Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, widely referred to as the “father of aerobics,” is founding a new residential community in McKinney, Texas, that will eventually be home to 38,000 people. Cooper Life at Craig Ranch is focused on supporting the health and wellness of its residents. Homeowners buy not just a place to live but a complete lifestyle package-including membership to the Cooper Aerobics Center at Craig Ranch; customized nutrition and supplement plans; and family medical care (with house calls) and request their own personal trainers and dietitians. To learn more about this new development, see www.cooperlife.com.
