About the Clinic

The Pediatric Fitness Clinic is located in Madison, Wisconsin in the UW Health Research Park Clinic.

Monitored exercise sessions are offered in our Sports Medicine Exercise Science Lab. The ultimate goal is to make exercise fun and teach safe and appropriate use of equipment. If deemed appropriate by our exercise physiologists, the child can join a group of peers and enjoy the clinic's interactive exercise options which include Dance Dance Revolution and video GameBikes. This non-threatening social and active portion focuses on fun and is a hit with this generation of video-oriented children.
