Golf Fitness Made Simple

Posted by & filed under .

It has been over 2 weeks since I have played golf. That is a long stretch but not out of the ordinary for this time of year. Between work and the weather, it is becoming difficult to get out there. I always joke that 40 degrees in March is way different than November. Our golfers […]

Building Longevity in Golf

When golfers play more, and longer, everyone is happy. Golfers love to golf, the courses do well with more memberships/greens fees, and the retailers do well. Losing golfers does not help the game.

The Problem with Sports Specific Training

Posted by & filed under .

Not too long ago I had a father come in and ask about some training. He seemed excited and his heart was in the right place. The issue is that his son is 6 years old. We do not start training our kids until 8 years old. He noticed that his son ran kind of […]

Stronger and More Stable Athletes

Posted by & filed under , .

Sometimes I will use strength and stability almost interchangeably. On one hand strength is stable. On the other, we can break this down a little bit further.
