Golf Fitness Instructor-A New Approach To Your Golf Improvement

Golf fitness instructor may be a term you’ve never heard before, but it’s one that is becoming very popular thanks to all the touring pros using them and even the golf channel having an entire segment on the golf fitness. I’m sure by now you’ve heard most of the professional players; both men and women who actively participate in golf workouts. Tiger took golf to another level, Vijay Singh, does his golf workouts all the way through Sunday of each tournament. Take a look at Annika Sorenstam , She hired a Golf specific trainer and got serious about her golf fitness. And look what happened? She hasn’t looked back since. Now more LPGA players are working out to try and catch her, just like the guys did with Tiger.

Today club pro’s, tournament golfers, seniors and even juniors are catching on. They are now realizing now, that hitting more balls alone will not improve their golf swing mechanics. If you have physical or biomechanical limitations that don’t allow your body to perform the movements required, reaching your full golf potential is limited.
How is the Golf Fitness Specific program different from just working out at the Gym?

When we go to the gym and develop our workout program, A program is developed where you isolate and train individual body parts with the goal of producing that muscle to become larger, there is nothing wrong with this type of training the only problem is, it does not help us become any more flexible, you might gain strength, but you don’t build any power. Power is the key to a great golf swing the ability to generate force behind your movements.

With a golf specific training program there is a focus on structural elements, from joint function to flexibility that contributes to your posture. With a golf specific program we work on flexibility, balance, stability, strength and power. The goal is not to look good although it will transform your body, increase your energy level, slow down the aging process, better yet condition yourself for power.

Therefore golf training program should incorporate strength, flexibility and even endurance training. Doing a golf flexibility program without incorporating a strength program won’t get you the results you’re looking for. A combination of the two is best.

For example:

The golf swing is a rotational movement. With your body in golf posture, slight flex of the knees and a bending forward at the hips. Since the golf swing is primarily rotational, wouldn’t it make sense to focus on rotational strength and flexibility? That is improving your turning ability related to range of motion and speed.

The Plan:
“Can you imagine what would happen if a football player, basketball player or baseball player would skip the physical work needed to play their sport, so why wouldn’t a golfer do the same for his or her sport.”
