The most important piece of equipment in the game of golf is YOUR BODY.
The goal of a golf specific training program is to strengthen the primary muscles that are used in the game of golf and to increase your flexibility and strength to produce a more solid, safe and fluid swing.
While working together, we will conduct a series of tests including a complete swing analysis, plus a series of flexibility, strength, balance and range of motion assessments.
