FUNCTIONAL PILATES METHOD
To break that magic number on the score card.
PILATES can help you accomplish that.
Many Professional Golfers like Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Anna Sorenson, and Adam Scott (to name just a few) have added PILATES to their workout regime.
Pilates is based on movement from the center of the body, as are most shots in golf. It strengthens the center of the body, also known as the core (the trunk, shoulder girdles and pelvis). Core strength can improve hip rotation, range of motion in the shoulders and back stability leading to more powerful and accurate golf shots. It is also a full body exercise that works all muscles and is easy on the joints. The end result is a flexible, symmetrically muscled body that is strengthened from the inside out.
PILATES HELPS YOU:
-Build up the back muscles evenly
-Elongate and align the spine for better stability
-Strengthen the abdominals
-Increase overall flexibility, strength, and balance
-Increase range of motion in hips and shoulders
-Enhance concentration through focused breathing
A STRONGER MORE STABLE CORE HELPS YOU:
-Attain an optimal backswing and follow-through with increased range of motion in shoulders
-Get more distance and power because of added hip and torso flexibility
-Have a stronger and bigger hip turn for greater power through rotation
-Create a smoother and more powerful swing due to evenly conditioned back muscles
-Maximize balance and alignment while rotating
-Decrease fatigue because of less strain on the body
-Hold a body position long enough to play through a shot
-Play without pain!
GOLF SEASON IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!
ARE YOU READY? HAVE YOU DONE ANYTHING TO KEEP IN SHAPE OVER THE WINTER MONTHS?
This 3 hour Clinic will transform your game. Core strength and Flexibility are the most important things for a golfer to achieve and maintain throughout the course of their life. Both on and off the course the Golfer wants to feel limber and functional.
In this Clinic you will learn the pre play stretching and warm up exercises to help get you present, centered and limber for your game. Many people fit that game in after a long day at the office or in between family responsibilities and busy schedules in general. This 10 minute warm up will start your game off on the right foot.
We will also go through the off the course strength portion. Building flexibility and strength in the muscles you need to play at your best does not come over night. We also as humans are not always perfectly balanced or free from compensation patterns from our lives that we have all lived. These imbalances and compensatory patterns affect the game we play. With the strength portion you will find the areas that need to be worked on and you will have a take home program to do 3-4 times a week to get your ready for the season.
Send me a video of your swing ahead of time and it will allow me to really see what your body needs and how to correct it.
