The most common way people use to get good at golf is professional lessons and PGA lessons. Although this approach is logical it is the very reason most golfers end up injured and rarely reach their potential. Why? because so few golfers associate the need for improved physical conditioning with their quest for improved performance.
Golf is an athletic sport. To put this in perspective, consider that the head of the golf club can travel over 100 miles per hour, an effort comparable to pitching a baseball. or the fact that amateur golfers achieve approximately 90% of their peak muscle activity when driving a ball. this is the same lifting intensity as picking up weight that can only be lifted four times before total fatigue. yes golfers fail to consider that they strike the bsll on average of 30 to 40 times a game with comparable intensity. this level of exertion and muscle activation equates golf with such sports as football, hockey and martial arts.
We are unique that we offer CHEK corrective exercise alongside our Pilates. A CHEK Practitioner (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiologist) looks at the body as a complete entity, in which all parts of the body work together. This type of core fitness training strives to correct the inevitable imbalances in our posture and strength caused by day-to-day living.
The CHEK Practitioner helps to achieve a fully functional, strong, healthy, PAIN-FREE body ready for the golf season. The process involves acute attention to detail regarding proper movement technique, extensive physical evaluations, and subsequent individualised exercise programs.
