Let me start by introducing myself. I am Christine Buzzetta, the Communications Manager at Cooper Aerobics. I’ve been with Cooper Aerobics about three months and am inspired daily by the organization’s mission and dedication to health. Since day one I have been filling my brain with everything there is to know about Cooper, and after more than 40 years there is no shortage of information.
But this week is all about getting Cooperized! Starting today I will be blogging and tweeting my way through Cooper Wellness, our program that teaches participants all of the tools they need to fall into a healthy lifestyle. We’ll learn how to manage stress, improve nutrition, lose weight and adopt a more active lifestyle. I’ve even heard there are daily cooking demonstrations, which I know my soon-to-be hubby will greatly appreciate. Sign me up!
Living a healthy lifestyle was ingrained in me since I was young. My mom always made an effort to cook nutritious meals and I preferred athletics as my after-school activity of choice. But after playing tennis competitively for more than seven years, suffering and recovering from countless injuries, I pretty much threw exercise out the window after high school. Only recently I began making an effort to be healthy, mostly because I’m getting married in November – talk about motivation! Despite my best efforts, I don’t quite feel like I have a good grip on everything.
All that to say the timing for going to Cooper Wellness couldn’t be better. From just looking at our schedule I’m already beyond excited. Here’s a preview of what to expect:
- Prescription for a Healthy Life
- Guidelines for Optimal Nutrition
- Heart Rate Monitor Demonstration
- Vitamins and Supplements: What You Should Know
- Resistance Bands: Exercise Your Options
- Deliciously Healthy, Delightedly Simple – Meals in Minutes
I’d love to hear from you as I work my way through Cooper Wellness. Please feel free to comment below or message me on Twitter with your questions or personal thoughts about anything and everything related to getting Cooperized!
Stay tuned for more!

Christine, from early 70s when I read Aerobics to now, I’ve always used Dr. Cooper’s references and checked others nutritional and fitness information against them. Then came his eNewsLetter with mostly Jull’s and Todd’s articles. Then came the summary-index format for the information: http://cooperaerobics.com/Health-Tips ; what a thorough, simple, succinct reference. Now the blog which could increase information exchange and the added understanding that comes with participation. Christine, I look forward to your tour of Cooper Wellness by blog and plan to be continuously active on your coat-tails. Maybe add ‘Knee Maintenance’ to your list. Thanks.
Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I was fortunate to attend Cooper Wellness in August of 2011 and it was one of the best weeks I have ever had! We recently realized that my posts from my experience are not appearing on our blog, so we are adding them. You’ll see a few more of them post later this week.
Next week my colleague and fellow blogger J’Lyn Emerson is attending Cooper Wellness and will be blogging about her experience. I hope you will follow her posts, as I know she will appreciate your support. Thanks again!
