A Golf Fitness Coach Equals Terrific Golf

November 8, 2009


Golf fitness coach. Have you ever considered one…and if so, what systematically were you looking for? There are many ‘frequent fitness’ trainers trying to purchase a piece of the golf fitness and training market that seems to be fast gaining exposure both on the television and inside print thanks to Tiger, Vijay and Annika.

But the first thing you need to consider when looking into hiring a golf fitness coach or program is the trainers experience inside golf.

Yes…that is high on the list of requirements. Does he/she know golf? Do they know the biomechanics of the golf swing? How about muscle function during the golf swing?

An simple test is during the initial interview or if you’re researching it online is to either ask very golf specific swing technique questions; or take a look at the information on the website. You’ll discover out real quick if this person or program can improve your golf swing, game and health.

A golf fitness coach or program ought to incorporate strength, flexibility, endurance, body awareness, balance, stability and even a nutrition component.

It’s easy for a trainer to have a strength component…but is it specific to golf? A quick test. Take a look at any of the exercises. Are some of them on seated machines for instance? If they are…run! This is NOT a golf fitness coach and/or program. This is considered ‘ordinary fitness’.

At this moment stretching. There are dozens of stretches for every public. But take a look at a few of them. Do they even remotely look like they will improvement your golf swing?

Stretches involving trunk flexibility; lower back; hamstring; and even shoulders specific to the mechanics of the swing are what you choose. Frequent stretches are greater than nothing, but will delay your results. You desire specific stretches.

Body awareness. Does a few of the exercises resemble golf positions or phases of the swing? Do they look like you would be on your feet and inside your golf posture? Because stated higher than, if they are seated on machines, your body will learn nothing in regards to your golf swing.

Training your body specific to golf incorporates positions almost identical to what your body would be in during any part of the golf swing.

Stability. Training your body to boost stability in your swing can pay for a little complex if you essentially select to see results. The swing happens at between 80-100 miles an hour. One of the biggest flaws of amateur golfers is moving inside their golf swing.

Moving either laterally (sliding), vertically (up and done) or both. This is death to your golf swing. To enhance your stability involves specific power drills most trainers don’t even know about.

I may go on-and-on about the requirements of a golf fitness coach or program. It is critical you make the right decision. I have heard horror stories of golfers working with ‘so-called’ golf fitness experts and their game getting worse. With the proper research this won’t happen to you. So definitely believe a golf fitness coach.
