MANASQUAN, NJ & DALLAS, April 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Atlantic Club and Cooper Wellness Strategies, both pioneers in the medical fitness industry, announce an industry-first prevention-based wellness partnership. This new partnership, starting April 26, will provide the Manasquan community with wellness and medical fitness programs and fitness testing to optimize one’s health through the prevention or treatment of chronic diseases. Specific programs based on over 50 years of Cooper Aerobics health and wellness include Cooper® Tracks, Cooper Quest®, CooperFit™ and Move.Laugh.Connect. and will be offered at the Cooper Wellness Center at The Atlantic Club, opening in late April.

“The Atlantic Club is pleased to offer Cooper health and wellness programs, assessments and ancillary products to our members and our immediate community,” said Kevin McHugh, Chief Operating Officer of The Atlantic Club. “The vision and leadership of Pat Laus, owner of The Atlantic Club, was the driving force that enabled The Atlantic Club to not only introduce medical fitness programs in 2011, but to launch preventative care programs over the past decade, The Atlantic Club have died Opportunity for this outstanding strategic partnership with Cooper Wellness Strategies.”
Specifically, Cooper® Tracks is an exercise and educational program designed to guide and support people with chronic health conditions or those who are deconditioned to learn how to exercise safely, increase their confidence, and develop habits to live healthier lives. Cooper® Tracks programming offers a comprehensive approach to wellness.
The first series of Cooper® Tracks programs at the Cooper Wellness Center at The Atlantic Club in late April will target Post COVID-19 Recovery (Long Haulers). In May, the Cooper Wellness Center at the Atlantic Club will add Active with Arthritis and Health and Wellness 101. Additional Cooper tracks will be introduced in June with a focus on diabetes, heart and well-being. In October, the center will add Cooper Tracks Cancer to its offering. Each Cooper® Tracks program lasts eight weeks and consists of pre- and post-program health assessments, with two small group exercise classes and training sessions per week. Training tracking tools, social support and accountability will be provided by trained trainers throughout the eight weeks to make a positive impact and provide solutions for those in need of a lifestyle change.
The Cooper Wellness Center at the Atlantic Club will also offer Cooper’s Move.Laugh.Connect. (MLC) Parkinson’s Programs in October. MLC is a balanced total wellness program for adults that addresses the physical, emotional, and social dimensions in a group setting, with an emphasis on extending years of service. The program is designed for older adults with limited mobility, stability and other health issues, but is also available to anyone looking to improve brain health and fitness.
Another component of the Cooper Wellness Center at The Atlantic Club are CooperFit™ tests. CooperFit™ is a cardiovascular fitness test that provides an accurate prediction of a person’s fitness level, based on more than 50 years of research and fitness testing at the Cooper Clinic. CooperFit™, a vital sign of health, measures a person’s predicted maximum VO2 – the body’s ability to use oxygen (aerobic capacity) – to determine their fitness level.
“The Cooper Wellness Center at the Atlantic Club allows us to partner with one of the nation’s premier fitness centers that reflects the health and wellness assessments and programs that Cooper is known for,” said David Evans, vice president of Cooper Wellness Strategies. “The integration of our wellness program, beginning with Cooper® Tracks, offers The Atlantic Club members, healthcare professionals and the surrounding community a world-class solution for the prevention and management of chronic diseases.”
