What will it take to get you to perform better golf? Ill be youve tried the gimmicky golf training aids. Did they work? How about equipment? How many drivers do you have in your garage? Am I getting your attention yet?
My approach to perform better golf is through training your BODY, not buying more equipment or taking more lessons. It is your BODY that plays the game, so focus on it and the sky is the limit.
I want you to think of yourself as an athlete. You probably were one at some point in your life. Did you ever do a workout for that sport you participated in? Ill be the answer is yes.
Well now your sport is golf. And to perform better golf means training specific to golf. Not going into a gym and plopping down on a machine. Not working out like a body builder. But doing exercises that are very similar to your golf swing with resistance.
It angers me when I see all these so-called golf fitness books, programs and websites that say they are for golfers, but when I look into them, they are all just general fitness programs. I dont want you to waste your time with programs like this.
I want you to do exercises that will have an immediate impact on your game. That will give you the quickest return on your time and money investment. Doesnt that sound like a winner?
I have spent the better part of the last decade developing programs, books, dvds and online sites to both educate the golfer and give them easy-to-implement golf fitness exercises and programs that will have a direct impact on their game.
To perform better golf you need to take this approach. If you arent a believer yet, just ask yourself if your game has improved in the last 6 months. Be honest. Has it? If not, what are you currently doing that you need to change?
Training your body with light weights, exercise tubing, medicine balls and exercise balls is the easiest, and most affordable way to accomplish your golfing goals. Just make sure when researching programs whether it be on the net or in a bookstore, that they dont spend all their time saying how great they are or how comprehensive their programs are but instead talk to you directly.
After reading this article dont hesitate for a second. Get on Google or MSN or even Yahoo and type in Golf Fitness or Golf Training and see whats out there. Usually the ones near the top are the most credible. Spend a little time researching these results.
FYI – Don’t be mislead by the results at the very top of the page. They are “paid ads”. To avoid wasting time with these, go to the first couple of ‘real results’ right below the highlighted ones.
The end result is to perform better golf!
