FITNESS IS THE FOUNDATION
For nearly 50 years, The Cooper Institute has stood as a beacon of fitness and health through scientific research, education and advocacy.
For decades, FitnessGram by The Cooper Institute has set the standard of youth fitness measurement and data collection. Our research gives decision-makers at all levels the data needed to improve fitness and fight childhood obesity. Together with teachers, school administrators, legislators, business partners, and healthcare professionals, we can make sure that the students of today grow up to be the healthy workers of tomorrow. We want every child to build healthy habits today so they can live well into the future.
Programs like NFL Play60 Push students to be physically active at least 60 minutes per day.
The NFL Play60 FitnessGram Project proves that physically active students have improved cardio fitness, lower body mass, and improved academic performance.
