Cardio Endurance

“I believe being aerobically fit helps my body recover quickly so that I’m able to compete at the highest level.”  Tiger Woods

Cardio is crucial to your long term success as a golfer and as person who strives to be lean, fit, strong and everlasting in your favorite sport. Great physical conditioning creates a more powerful golfer any day-every day. Cardiovascular exercise is generally underestimated when it comes to golf fitness.

Golfers typically fail to see the benefits derived from cardio simply because they either ride in a cart or feel there is plenty of rest in between shots. However, walkers cover an approximate walking distance of 4-5 miles each round.

Even cart riders put in their fair share of walking depending on local cart rules, weather conditions and following errant shots. Put simply, cardio builds endurance and endurance protects your game from fatigue.
