Golf fitness isn't about looking like a body builder or the best player on Tour. It's about being fit to play the game at an individual's highest level and doing so without causing injury. Golf specific fitness programs are designed to provide an understanding of how the body's limitations can influence the golf swing and how these limitations can be addressed through the proper channels; whether it's through a low intensity mobility program or high intensity strength and conditioning program. These options are based on many factors including the client's goals, abilities and life. Golf fitness is truly about unlocking the body's capabilities to increase performance on the golf course while improving health for life.
Every good program begins with an assessment. An assessment helps to identify limitations and set goals to work towards. Each player is taken through an initial assessment including the Titleist Performance Institute screening and the RAD Mobility screen. These screens are simple assessments with the purpose of identifying areas in the body that are limited and connecting them to common faults or misses in the golf swing.
Based on the results of the assessment as well as the client's preferences and goals, a program is designed specifically for the individual. Different program options are available to suit the player's needs. Training and mobility sessions use the latest in techniques and research to restore function and improve performance. Between sessions, the player is provided with a set of specific at-home exercises to do to continue progression.
Each month, the player is re-assessed to check progress in order to make changes to the program, reassess goals and continue the progression.
