Golf Fitness

Research shows a fitness conditioning program can improve your golf game, reduce your risk of injury, and certainly make golf more enjoyable.The reality is, golf is a one-sided sport, you always move in the same direction, either right to left, or left to right. This can create the “perfect storm”  for muscle imbalances, joint restrictions and instability, and over time, sets the stage for injury and further movement restrictions.
Golf fitness focuses on the areas of fitness most critical for golf: balance and weight transfer, flexibility with stabilization, core stabilization, body awareness, muscular strength and endurance, and control of movement. Improvement in these areas of fitness can improve club head speed, timing and follow-through, rotational power, and the ability to develop power with control while reducing the stress on joints, muscles, and other tissues in your body. A golf fitness program can improve how you move and help you improve in the areas of fitness that most critical for golf, but how the improvements transfer to your golf game is between you and the golf course.
