Provided to Wellington members by Cooper Aerobics and Cooper Wellness Strategies — the CooperQuest wellness program. This on-going, custom-designed benefit provides you tools, resources and encouragement to help you achieve the fitness results you desire.
Cooper Quest is based on Dr. Kenneth Cooper's 8 Steps to Get Cooperized™, and at the foundation of the program are five key health areas:
Regular cholesterol and glucose testing is a simple, yet reliable, way to monitor your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Opt to use existing blood work from your doctor—including total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides and blood glucose. Complete the Blood Work Form provided by the Fitness Center to submit blood work results that you have completed within the past year.
An unhealthy body composition increases the risk of chronic health conditions. Get a complete picture of your body composition by measuring your body mass index and body fat percentage. You can get this done during the Functional Testing appointment or stop by the fitness office—it’s quick and easy to measure.
Being fit, as proven by The Cooper Institute, decreases the risk of dying from all causes by 58 percent and adds up to six years to an individual’s life. Complete a walk or run test in less than 20minutes to determine your cardiovascular fitness level. We will be offering a new round of cardiovascular testing at Wellington starting on Thursday, February 25, and running through Thursday, March 11. Testing will take approximately 30 minutes and will involve either walking a mile or running 1.5 miles on a treadmill. We can also check blood pressure and bodyfat percentage. You may also go through the Functional Movement Screening if desired. The screening is one of the perks offered at Wellington; there is no charge. To sign up go to Make an appointment for screening!
The better mobility and stability you have, the more you can improve your exercise efficiency, durability and performance. The 20-minute Functional Movement Screen evaluates your movement patterns, identifying weaknesses and imbalances. Contact the fitness staff to schedule an appointment.
Well-Being includes the presence of positive emotions and moods, the absence of negative emotions, satisfaction with life, fulfillment and positive functioning. Your lifestyle habits can affect your well-being positively and negatively. There are many aspects of Well-Being including:
Physical Well-Being is recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep.
Emotional Well-Being is coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships.
Social Well-Being is the extent to which one feels a sense of belonging and social inclusion.
