In September, Leadership in Adapted Fitness (LAF) took a trip to Boston, Massachusetts to explore the Abilities Expo which provided an excellent opportunity to expand and apply the knowledge they have gained at UW-Madison. The expo was held in the Boston Convention Center and featured many cutting-edge products and services, adapted sports and activities for better health, informative workshops, daily living aids, and many life-changing activities and products for individuals of all ages. The expo gave students an opportunity to see all the new technology that we may be able to provide for local clients in the future. Current Co-president of LAF, Emily Johnson said “The Abilities Expo was a great way to apply what we learned in Adapted Fitness and apply it to programs and companies across the nation! Also, it was a unique way to bring back information to better our clients and the program.”
