"The reason I exercise is for the quality of life I enjoy." -- Kenneth H. Cooper
Kenneth H. Cooper (born 1931) is an M.D. and former Air Force Colonel from Oklahoma, who introduced the concept of aerobics. Cooper is the author of a 1968 book Aerobics which emphasized a point system for improving the cardiovascular system. The popular mass market version was The New Aerobics (ISBN 0-553-26874-0), published a few years later. His points system is also the basis of the 10,000 steps per day method of maintaining adequate fitness by walking.

In his Air Force career, Cooper had devised a simple test (the Cooper test, originally the distance run in 12 minutes) which correlated quite well with VO2max, and so could conveniently be used to quickly establish the fitness level of large numbers of people.

Cooper is the founder of the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas and McKinney, Texas[1]. He is also the founder of the non-profit research and education organization, The Cooper Institute, which was opened in 1970. Today, he leads 10 health companies and The Cooper Institute. Dr. Cooper also heads the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas, as well as a second center at Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, the site of CooperLife, a health and wellness residential community.[2]
