It would be totally awesome, if you could just buy new driver or get a quick tip on the driving range before your round of golf to fix your game and play your best. But you all know, deep down inside, that quick fixes and new equipment can never really cure a lifetime of bad swing habits and physical limitations.
Truly the only way to improve your golf game is to constantly push yourself physically and mentally beyond your comfort zone.
Golf-fitness will always feel hard because it is exercise and exercise is work. Exercise elevates your heart rate, takes your breath away, makes you sweat and causes your muscles to burn and fatigue. It is tiring and sometimes even painful. Exercise does get easier with time, but it will never be easy. If it were easy and it didn’t challenge you, then it wouldn’t be exercise and it wouldn’t improve the way you move, feel and look.
The good news is that, regardless of your age or current physical abilities, it has been proven that exercise can add years to your life, prevent illness and disease and make you feel and look better. And you don’t need to spend hours in the gym. New studies show that even short bursts of exercise and movement are just as effective as long fitness sessions.
What can golf-fitness do for your golf game?
An efficient golf swing requires stability, power, balance, and coordination. A golf-fitness program provides the foundation to build all these necessary characteristics. Strength and flexibility are essential to producing distance and increasing swing speed. Many swing faults are the result of poor fitness; therefore, strength and flexibility through a golf-fitness program make it possible to swing efficiently.
I am not making this stuff up. Check out how tour players Lexi Thompson, Dustin Johnson and our own Scott McCarron work on their golf-fitness.
