Every sport brings its own distinct fitness challenges. Whilst golf is often perceived as a leisurely activity it is serious sport and in fact has one of the highest levels of injuries of any sport. The golf swing is one of the most complex moves you can ask your body to do, where we ask a huge number of joints and muscles to work in sequence across multiple planes of movement to collide accurately with a small spherical object at speeds of up to 100 mph. And we need to do that a great many times as we make our way around a golf course. To do this we require good balance, core strength, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance and power.
Golf specific fitness training can:-
- Build increased mobility and flexibility
- Reduce and prevent golf related injuries
- Help to rehabilitate you from the injuries you have
- Increase your club head speed
- Ultimately reduce your handicap & lower your scores
Working with the Christey-Clover Golf Academy, About You Fitness Consultancy now delivers golf specific fitness programmes. Each programme starts with a golf fitness assessment. This assessment looks at your balance, core strength, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance and power. This assessment takes around an hour. As a result of the assessment you would be provided with a full report which can be used as a baseline to shape your golf fitness programme and goals. A second session would work you through the exercises that your need and give you a detailed document which sets out a bespoke fitness programme for you. You can then work on this at your own gym or at home or with me dependent on what you have or want.
