For the first time, Cooper Corporate Solutions, a Cooper Aerobics company founded by Putnam City native Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper, will host Oklahoma City’s first open session of Fit to Lead, a health and business seminar, on Monday, March 21, at the Skirvin Hilton.

Fit to Lead teaches business leaders the strategies to manage their nutrition, fitness, and stress—all of which contribute to their professional productivity. Fit to Lead leverages Cooper Aerobics’ 40 years of data and research to craft realistic, customized plans to empower more effective business leaders through healthy lifestyles.

During the one-day seminar, Cooper experts will share practical strategies to incorporate physical activity and proper nutrition in the workday—whether on the road or in the office. Through Fit to Lead, participants will:

  •     Learn about corporate wellness programs that can produce a meaningful ROI when properly executed.
  •     Enjoy a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack, all with nutritional analysis information and take-home recipes.
  •     Practice in-office exercises like chair lifts and stretching.
  •     Better understand the health implications of unaddressed stress and will learn strategies to healthfully manage stress.
  •     Create a personal action plan that focuses on “Squaring Off the Curve.” A lifestyle proven to improve the quality and quantity of one’s life.

Cooper Corporate Solutions provides wellness consulting and programming services to Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy and Durant-based First United Bank.
