Golf coaching has changed over the last decade. Most top players are now physically fit and highly conditioned as a result of improved coaching methods, modern technology and The Tiger Woods Effect. He being one of the first players to embrace physical fitness in the games modern era.
You now have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of your golfing idols by supporting your swing coaching with a personalised Golf Training Program, designed specifically for you.
Our PGA Professionals are also fully qualified personal trainers. They understand that your body has to move properly before you can swing a club properly. We regularly see students with poor posture and physical restrictions, which has often been the result of long hours in an office environment, performing inappropriate exercises in the gym or from a previous injury. By revealing these imbalances through a movement screen, we will recommend exercises to restore the body’s balance and symmetry and help you avoid potential injury. Naturally, this will benefit your golfing performance but it will also improve your quality of life.
We offer a number of different training styles to achieve your fitness goals including:
- Circuit training
- Free weight training
- Resistance training
- TRX Training
- TRX RIP Training
Our coaches often see students who are unable to perform the correct technical moves within the golf swing because their bodies are physically blocked. This often leads to compensations forming, resulting in poor performance and even injury.
Introducing The Functional Movement Screen (FMS). A simple and practical test comprising of seven movements that require a balance of mobility and stability.
- Deep Squat
- Hurdle Step
- Inline Lunge
- Active Straight Leg Raise
- Shoulder Stability
- Stability Push Up
- Rotary Stability
The patterns used provide observable performance of basic, manipulative and stabilising movements by placing students in positions where weaknesses, imbalances, asymmetries and limitations become noticeable to the coach. The test will also expose any dysfunction or pain within the basic movement patterns.
The FMS creates a movement blueprint for the student, allowing the coach to understand why they are physically blocked and prescribe the relevant corrective exercises within a Golf Specific Workout Program. Only after this can strength workouts and performance based exercises resume.
The FMS is recommended for all new students, however it is not a mandatory part of the initial assessment
