Have A Golf Fitness Expert In Your Home
The term golf fitness expert has grown in popularity for the last few years thanks to Tiger Woods, Annika Sorenstam, Vijay Singh and many other tour players.
They all have a golf fitness expert who actually travels with them to every tournament to keep them in top shape throughout their season.
Tip: Make sure you understand what you are dealing with before you start, look at the ball and advise your playing partners of its details so they know which ball is yours. This is so you can identify your ball, should it be near the other players’ balls.
Most of you don’t have the luxury to have a golf fitness expert one time, let alone 3 to 5 times a week, every week. This would cost in the thousands of dollars every month.
Tip: If you see your shot fading to the right, it’s because your body moves too far left during the swing process. One way to adjust this is to concentrate on pushing your hands through the swing just a little bit faster.
The average, ‘qualified’ golf fitness expert will charge anywhere from a low of $40 per session to a high of over $250. The more experienced the golf fitness expert, the more they will charge.
So what are you options if the above scenario is a little too out of your economic reality?
Tip: If you believe your swing is too quick and your club’s head doesn’t have the ability to properly guide you in your swing, then an excellent solution is to use a grip that is more lightweight. Making this change alters the weight of the grip relative to the club head, which allows you to focus on the club head and hit the ball true.
The next best thing is to get some golf fitness videos (dvds) that take you through the entire golf fitness session from start to finish…including stretches, warm ups, cool downs and advice.
Tip: Each golf club comes with a place that is considered the “sweet spot”. This is a point on the club where a strike will have a perfectly accurate swing.
This is the next best thing to having a golf fitness expert in person. I have been fortunate enough to receive hundreds of emails and letters from golfers who have greatly benefited from this format of training.
Tip: With a lot of practice, the common mistake of slicing can be avoided. The problem is the clubface hits the ball incorrectly and makes it curve to the right.
There are not too many fitness and/or golf fitness videos (dvds) on the market that take you through an actual workout. Most of them show you the exercise and discuss the do’s and don’ts.
Tip: To get more out of a golf swing, don’t have over-active legs. The legs are important in shifting your weight and providing power.
What you really need is a golf fitness video (dvd) that takes you step-by-step through the workout so you have an idea of proper technique, pace of the session and a huge sense of satisfaction when it is done.
Tip: When you’re on the market for new clubs, consult with golf pros before you make your final purchase. This is a good idea because a pro will be able to analyze your swing and stance to see what clubs are likely to improve your game the most.
Then to have the wherewithal to put that golf fitness video (dvd) back in the player in 48 hours and do it again. And again. And again. This will give you the best, most quickest results.
Tip: If you want to hit a good fade, tighten up your grip. The grip is an important, and often overlooked, aspect of your golf swing.
You really want to make sure it is a ‘complete workout’. Not just exercises and then you have to figure out how to put them together in a workout format. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased workout videos only to have to figure them out on my own.
What a big waste of time and frustration!
You want “plug-and-play!”
Tip: If you are playing golf with strangers, take a few minutes to get to know them before you tee off. You want to have a good relationship with your partners because you will be playing with them for at least the next four hours.
So there is hope to finally have a golf fitness expert in your home on a weekly basis. One that will motivate you and inspire you to continue and strive to be the best you can be.
Go out and get your very own golf fitness expert!
