Shannon Health Club has launched a new program in partnership with renowned Cooper Wellness Strategies™, a Cooper Aerobics company, to help individuals manage chronic health conditions. Cooper® Tracks is an exercise and educational program designed to guide and support individuals through exercising, increasing confidence and developing habits to live healthier lives by managing their chronic disease and improving their immune health. The fitness classes were created to help patients who have finished physical rehabilitation, cancer treatment, diabetes education or other rehabilitation programs transition into a medically-based health club setting environment more easily.
Our programs provide the guidance and support needed to help participants begin exercising, increase confidence, and develop habits to live healthier to help manage their chronic conditions.
Shannon Health Club is one of the first fitness facilities in the nation to partner with Cooper Wellness Strategies and to implement Cooper Tracks.
Each track will have its own certified instructor/trainer who has completed specialized training before teaching the classes.
Education is a strong component of the program. After each class, participants receive instructions on assignments and exercises to complete prior to their next class session. Participant manuals with all the required materials are provided upon starting the program.

- 2 small group exercise/education sessions per week
