In home golf fitness can be more effective than belonging to a gym, paying monthly dues, and dealing with all the muscle-heads. Many golfers think they need fancy golf fitness equipment or a gym membership to be successful with their golf improvement program.
I have designed all the programs in my membership sites, dvds, manual and ebook to utilize minimal equipment in the convenience of your home. Many of my customers and members have been shocked at their results with in home golf fitness equipment as simple as exercise tubing, a stability ball and hand weights.
For all of a one-time cost of under $60 you can have your total in home golf fitness gym. Ive now eliminated the reason (excuse) that you need to belong to a gym or spend hundreds of dollars in equipment.
Ive also eliminated the reason (excuse) that you have no time. All the programs Im referring to are to be done in the convenience of your home saving you hours per week. This includes the time it takes to commute the gym; getting showered; and the time it takes to get back to where you need to be.
Coming up with golf fitness programs using just the above equipment can be fun, challenging and reduce boredom. The programs I design incorporate both strength and stretching within the same program, saving you even more time and killing two birds with one stone.
More and more golfers are realizing they can do almost as much with in home golf fitness programs as they can in a crowded gym with all the privacy they want.
I have always said that exercises done on a machine in a gym that isolate one muscle group while sitting is the farthest thing from a golf-specific exercise. Golf utilizes every major muscle group in the body, and in a sequential movement pattern. Sitting in a machine will not improve your body for golf.
The beauty of hand weights, tubing and balls is the ability to put your body in the exact same positions youre in for your golf swing. The more exercises you can do that simulate your golf swing, the bigger the benefit will be.
You will also be more apt to stick with it when you realize it will definitely improve your golf swing power and distance. Linking golf and fitness creates a commitment level thats not there with general (gym) fitness programs. Knowing your in home golf fitness program will help you play better and also feel better is a motivating factor.
When you get that itch to improve your game through fitness, dont think you need to join a gym. All you need is a little bit of space in your living room to start your in home golf fitness program.
