Our Golf Fitness Program in Scottsdale starts with our initial consultation
Golf Fitness assessment:
Step 1- Your Body. We start by looking at every joint in your body, surrounding tissues, and movement patterns using evidence based orthopedic screens. This part of the consultation takes about 30-40 minutes, and gives us a great idea where we need to build stability, mobility, and strength.
Step 2- Your Swing. After the screens we'll have have you hit a few balls for us in the hitting bay and put your swing on video to show you why you swing the way you do, due to physical limitations. Step 3- Stretching. The last part of the Golf Fitness assessment includes about 20-30 minutes of our Golf Stretching Program. We target those tight areas we found in your screens and show you how the program can help you gain mobility in a short amount of time.
The 3 steps to Golf Fitness
1. Create Mobility and Stability
The way we swing is directly related to how much mobility our joints have (or don't have) and our flexibility. Through our Golf Stretching program and Corrective Exercise program for golfers, we will help you build stability in the joints that are meant to be stable, and gain mobility in the joints that should be mobile. Your body will quickly become more efficient at swinging the golf club, and you'll be enjoying more distance off the tee!
2. Gain Functional Strength
Many people think of strength training from a classic viewpoint, meaning bench press, pull ups, curls, squats etc. these exercises are great and all but many of them aren't functional and can cause harm to your golf swing. The core and lower body are extremely important in the golf swing and there are much better functional "modern" ways to train them. Functional strength training almost always involves the core so can get you much stronger in a healthier way. We team our Corrective Exercise program for golfers with our Golf Performance Training to get you feeling stronger than you ever have.
3. Increase Power
Lastly comes the thing every golfer wants.. more distance off the tee! In some cases just improving mobility and stability can help you out, but in most of us we need a little more than that. This phase of training will combine the Golf Performance Training with some more powerful and explosive movements in the gym to get you moving more quickly through the impact zone, and in some cases picking up 30-40 yards more off the tee!
