Description

      Do you want to take your golf game to the next level?  Are you tired of losing to your friends when you play golf?  Do you want to improve your fitness level and golf game at the same time?  Then Golf Power Fitness is your solution to lower scores, improved fitness, and greater self confidence.  

     The course is great for busy people.  The videos are short, to the point, and grouped by body part. There is a big difference between golf fit and ego/bodybuilder fit.  If you are looking for huge size gains, this isn't the course for you.  This is about shooting lower scores, not seeing how much you can bench. This course is broken up by body part: Glutes, legs, back, abs, chest, and arms.  A variety of exercises are presented for each body part so you can find the exercises that work best both for your body and based on your access to equipment.  There is an introductory video for upper and lower body in which I explain its importance to golf and what specifically the exercises are trying to accomplish.  What makes this course unique is that I use very targeted strength training to improve your range of motion so you can swing freely and rotate well.  

     Don't believe me that fitness matters to golf?  In 2007, Rory McIlroy's driving distance was 295.5. Then he hit the gym and as of March 28, 2017 his driving distance was 318.8.   Don't you want an extra 23 yards off the tee too?  That's the difference between going for par 5's in two or laying up.  A fitness plan template is included for you to fill in with your exercises and weights to track your progress.  Many of the exercises offer progressions, so you can continue to challenge yourself.  This course is for beginner-intermediate golf fitness.  Even if you can bench 300 pounds, you might still be a beginner-intermediate in terms of golf fitness.  

      Disclaimer: By purchasing this class you agree to be solely responsible for any injuries suffered. You recognize that physical activity comes with a risk of physical injury.  The exercises contained in this class are what I have found to produce the best results for my body.  Not all exercises are right for everyone.  Consult your physician before beginning a new fitness plan.

Warning: Going heavy on weighted glute bridges can put your lower back in a compromised position.  I highly recommend doing one legged body weight bridges instead if you have the strength because this will give you a lot of resistance with no pressure on your low back.  Every person's body is different so do what feels right for you.

My goal is to help everyone lower their handicaps and have more fun on the golf course.  When I first started golf three years ago, I could barely hit the ball and shot 120 and above.  Now, I have shot in the high 70s and have fundamentally changed my approach to fitness to produce a body suited to golf.  I am not a natural athlete who can pick up sports easily, so I attribute my rapid golf improvement to my fitness routine, my swing coach, and lots of hard work.
