What’s the Best Way to Start a Golf-Fitness Program?
Many of you may be eager to start a golf-fitness program, but are unsure of how or where to start. Firstly, the key to developing a golf-fitness program, to fit your particular needs, is to find out what golf-related restrictions, if any, your body has.
Secondly, performing a golf-fitness screen can help you give you a starting point and determine what exercises you should be performing to maximize your time and effort.
Thirdly, consider building your own golf-performance team. Build a team that can address your physical needs.
Your team should therefore include: a golf professional, personal trainer, physical therapist, orthopedic specialist, massage therapist, chiropractor and even an ophthalmologist. Everyones needs are different, so you will want to determine what specialist you need for your individual game.
You can screen yourself at home with the CardioGolf™ Basic Golf-Fitness Screen.
