UW-Madison’s Adaptive Fitness program will be hosting its annual open house event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 20.
The open house will be held in Gym 6 of the UW Natatorium. There will be a keynote speaker every hour, and the winning poster in the Adaptive Fitness poster competition will be revealed.
The Adapted Fitness open house is part of Disability Awareness Week, which is the week of April 17.
This year, the open house will have two vendors. Chad Hermanson will be showing the Action Trackchair, the ultimate in all-terrain wheelchairs, and Hal Honeyman will be showing adapted bikes.
UW Adapted Fitness is composed of clients and students, with each individual benefitting the program in a special way. The students provide ways to help clients progress toward their goals, while the clients provide the students with real-life, hands-on, and unforgettable experiences.
Tim Gattenby is the coordinator of adaptive fitness and personal training with UW–Madison’s Department of Kinesiology.
