Why a Golf Fitness Trainer?

If you’re like most people, you make it to the golf course with only minutes to spare. No time for the practice range, or putting green, but you do try to get in a few quick stretches to loosen up those tight muscles before you start swinging that driver.

Every year thousands of golfers suffer injuries, some minor, some major, because they have not prepared themselves to play. Swinging that driver takes a lot of energy and puts a great deal of pressure on your body. Twist, turn, swing — if you don’t do a few basic exercises ahead of time to let your body know it’s about to play golf, those injuries are just waiting to happen.

If you have a golf fitness question, ask our trainer for advice.

For your convenience we have set up a special form on the “Ask The Fitness Trainer” page. Visit the page, fill in the form and Kathy will respond to you promptly.

    I decided last week to ask a question here, it was in my opinion complicated and I expected a brief answer. I got a multi question email to ascertain why I had this hip situation and how it looked when looking at my body from the front and side, knees, shoulders etc. Kathy has, since reviewing this information, sent me a group of stretching and strengthening exercises and a list of what not to further tighten with exercise. I am impressed beyond words with her kindness in doing this and her expertise, she makes perfect sense, she is indeed very good. If I lived anywhere near Kathy I would have her work me through the program. Highly recommend this caring and knowledgeable lady…thank you so much
