Golf Fitness - What is it?
Golf fitness isnít about looking like a bodybuilder or the best player on Tour. Itís about being fit to play the game at an individualís highest level and doing so without causing injury. Itís about understanding how a bodyís limitations can influence the golf swing and how to address those limitations through the proper channels; whether itís through swing instruction, physical rehabilitation or strength and conditioning exercise. Itís about understanding the latest technology and how that technology can be implemented to increase performance. A TPI Certified Professional can quickly identify your physical restrictions that may be limiting the playerís swing, and simple techniques to improve these limitations.
TPI believes golfers will benefit the most from a healthy and efficient body. TPI does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do. The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body.
To achieve an efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. This screen involves an assessment of swing mechanics and biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history.
Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for that golfer. The plan may include fitness training, rehabilitation and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above.
A golfer will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professional in the golf industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.
