After schools and businesses shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, it seemed as though we were in for a long, lazy stretch of inactivity.

Fortunately, many realized that this was the perfect time to make fitness a priority at home for the whole family. 

Teammates at The Cooper Institute responded quickly by packaging valuable resources to help the community stay physically active while sheltering at home. Our goal is always for students to get 60 minutes of daily physical activity. 

Why not encourage the whole family to #GetActiveStayHealthy together? 

As the Director of Youth Research and Education, Andjelka Pavlovic, PhD, recorded a series of exercise videos to show how to get a full-body workout at home with no equipment. 

Our partners at the National Football League (NFL), along with several NFL charitable partners, also offered free digital education and wellness resources for teachers, parents and students across the country to use during social distancing. 

“We know this is a difficult and uncertain time across our nation, including for millions of parents like me with young kids at home, looking to keep them active and educated. We want students, teachers and parents to know there are options for them at home,” said Anna Isaacson, Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility, NFL.
