Better Fitness, Better Golf

3 Key Elements to a Golf Specific Fitness Program

Many of the top touring professionals know that winning on the tour today takes much more than a great game of golf. It means understanding every aspect of their physical and mental being and what factors influence their performance. Gain a competitive edge in your next round by integrating these three key elements into your current VersusFit Training program.

Specific to golf – Get rid of the traditional gym machines which focus on isolating specific muscle groups and require no stabilization work by additional muscle groups.  Avoid the injury risks and ineffectiveness of static free weights in most gyms.  Bodyweight training is safer and requires greater neuromuscular control. Training the muscles and central nervous system simultaneously is extremely beneficial to performance fitness.

Increase Core Stability – VersusFit Training efficient movement creates more efficient power. Golfers maintain an athletic posture over long periods of time and require both trunk and core stabilization and endurance. By increasing your strength and endurance in the core region of your body, you provide both a solid base of support for rotation in addition to the proper transfer of power throughout the body.

Vary your Planes of Motion during Exercise – A golf fitness program will have varying planes of motion as part of your weekly strength routine. VersusFit Training Programs offer outstanding varying planes of motion, core strength, rotational power, and stabilizer muscle group conditioning. Planes of movement include front to back motions, left to right and rotational exercises. A VersusFit Training Program offered by a professional VersusFit Certified Coach can help you to perform considerably better, including greater power with a more relaxed swing.
