Flexibility

Add 20 yards to your drive

Everyone agrees that golf is a very demanding game, both physically and mentally. The repetitive motions over 4-5 hours can put a lot of stress on your body.
 
Why Condition for Golf?
 
During each game you will:
  • Take over 300 swings... twisting on one side!!!!!
  • Lean over 30-40 times
  • Bend down 40-50 times
  • Walk 4-5 miles
 
Start training so you can play pain free!
 
Injury statistics:
  • 63% of golfers will experience low back pain
  • 30% of pro golfers will play injured – Freddy Couples struggled many years with back injury

Do you feel stressed and on edge?

Imagine this: It’s the end of a long day and you bump into someone you know. They greet you with the usual: “Hey Ricky, how are things?” You roll your eyes, smile a tired smile… “Don’t ask!,” is your only reply. Immediately, you feel connected as your colleague is likely feeling the same way.

For many, this is a daily scenario. At the end of the day you long to go home and relax. Your head hurts, your shoulders are tight and your legs are stiff from sitting all day. Sadly, many get home only to start their evening drill!
