We now have solid evidence that there is a strong correlation between muscle deficiencies and inefficiencies in the golf swing.  By identifying and correcting these deficiencies (i.e. muscle tightness, weakness, and/or imbalance) we can enhance the golfer's swing efficiency, increase distance, improve accuracy, and address the triggers that are causing or may lead-up to golf-specific injury.  This, in turn, will enhance playing performance and satisfaction, and help to get injured golfers back out on the course.  

The golf fitness program is ideal for golfers of all ages and levels.  It's practical application is instrumental in assessing and improving golf-specific muscular strength, flexibility, balance, and power.  If you want to play better, healthier golf it's time to focus on the mechanism that's swinging the golf club. . .that's you the golfer. 

The components of the 2-session customized, one-on-one package include: 

a  A golf fitness assessment and video review of your swing to identify your specific anatomical deficiencies and consequential swing faults.  Absolutely essential for effective exercise program design.  

a  Detailed corrective exercises designed to target and improve the musculoskeletal deficiencies, allowing for better body control and swing mechanics.  Exercise programs require little equipment and can be done in the home, fitness center or club.

Each session takes about an hour.  If travel is required, the 2 sessions can be combined into 1, 2-hour session.  A Pro Summary with your findings will be sent to your teaching professional, if desired.   

For the more serious golfer, a 4-session package is also available where progression into a more comprehensive functional training program will take place, advancing the corrective phase with golf-specific strength, balance and speed exercises to maximize program benefits.

Our Club Membership has found Mr. Forman’s informative lectures and private sessions very beneficial for improving their golf game.  From simple balance exercises that aid in distance and direction of the ball flight to more intensive directions as they recover from injuries and surgeries, Mr. Forman has added skills to their regular training regimen that have provided positive results on the course.

EXERCISE OF THE MONTH

Quad-Hip Flexor Stretch

This is a progressive stretch for the quad-hip flexor area.  Be cautious as you lean back on the bench as it will challenge the knee if the quads are tight.  Avoid this stretch if you've had knee replacement.  Tight quads/hip flexors will impede hip mobility and that may rob you of power and distance.

 

 

Check with your physician before starting any type of exercise program.

HOST A WORKSHOP

If your Club or organization would like to host an informative golf fitness workshop, contact Bob at bob@golfitcarolina.com or 336-509-4610.

Bob came to my club and did a hour long session on the basics of his teaching and philosophy of fitness and how it relates to the golf swing and its performance.  My members thoroughly enjoyed the hour and wanted more.  I was impressed with his content and explanation.  My members were floored with his Q&A and his personal adaptation to their issues.  I was impressed with his interaction with attendants of the seminar.  If you are looking for someone to integrate your fitness program with the golf program, Bob is the guy to do it!  We will be booking Bob to come back to our club next spring.

"Bob Forman was fabulous!  He is a great presenter who shared some extremely valuable information related to how anatomical deficiencies such as: poor posture, flexibility, and balance impact our golf swing.  He not only shared what they are and how they impact the swing, but also demonstrated exercises to help correct them."
Ellen Gregory
EWGA-Wilmington, NC chapter

“Westchester is one of the Country’s largest private clubs with a membership that has high expectations for service and performance.  Bob Forman’s seminar on golf specific fitness and flexibility was extremely well received and motivated many of my members to begin a program of evaluation, exercise and follow-ups.  I highly recommend Bob for his knowledge, energy , and ability to connect with amateurs concerning golf fitness.” 
John Kennedy, Director of Golf
Westchester CC, 
Harrison, NY

Bob has a fantastic ability to understand and combine his expertise of the physical complexities of the human body with the PGA Professional’s trained eye with respect to the complexities of the golf swing.  Bob offers a refreshing angle that most amateur and professional golfers can understand and embrace.  Many times, a golfer will have physical limitations that prevents him or her from moving the way the PGA Professional is trying to instruct.  Bob can take the golfer’s weakest physical traits and focus a training program to better overcome those obstacles and allow the golfers to ultimately improve their swing.
