Gym 6 full of effort, smiles: Adaptive fitness proves exercise is for everybody

In Gym 6 of the UW-Madison Natatorium, limitations are considered temporary. Hope is fostered by building strength. Gym 6, stocked with squadrons of modified exercise equipment, is headquarters for the Adaptive Physical Activity Program. Housed in the Department of Kinesiology in the School of Education, each semester the program led by Tim Gattenby serves 100 clients. It also teaches and inspires nearly 300 students and student volunteers.

A recent article co-authored by UW-Madison alumnus Simon Goldberg is putting the spotlight on the need for more rigorous research into mindfulness-based interventions. The paper is titled, “Is mindfulness research methodology improving over time? A systematic review,” and it appeared in the open-access journal PLOS One. Goldberg, who received his Ph.D. from the School of Education’s Department of Counseling Psychology in August, is the lead author on the report. He is currently completing his postdoctoral fellowship in Health Services Research & Development at the Seattle VA and the University of Washington.
