Do you Need Advice on Strength and Fitness?
January 23rd, 2012, Posted by andrea |  No Comments »

Recently I have been going to visit trainers and gyms in Calgary that offer golf fitness programs. For me the visits have been very educational and inspiring! As with the golf swing there are many techniques and theories on how to hit the ball. In fitness, there are many ways to improve strength, agility, power, and flexibility. Which is right for you? What are your goals? Do you know what your body limitations and strengths are? This is where I would start – have a thorough Physical Assessment to identify the areas in yourgolfbody that needs to be addressed and get educated on the best strategy to improve that limitation. Sometimes exercise alone will not improve dysfunction – look to a medical professional to help correct these imbalances: physiotherapist, massage therapist, chiropractor…etc. BUT REMEMBER – what you have corrected through passive strategies (the hands of others) you need to support actively (exercises). What can YourGolfBody do?
