Hiring a personal fitness trainer to help you with your golfing

By Jean-Sebastien Fabre

Orlando, FL – When people think of high intensity sports, they tend to picture sports such as football,

rugby, athletics, swimming, etc. People consider these sports to be pretty intense and pretty risky

too when it comes to picking up injuries. One sport which people never used to even consider when

thinking about injuries, however, was golf. Golf was once considered a sport for elderly people and

safe due mainly to the fact that it doesn’t involve running. Over the last few years, however, things

have changed and more and more people are now aware of just how dangerous golf can actually be.

Golf is a sport which requires great hand-eye coordination, flexibility, mobility, stamina, and even

strength. Fail to warm up correctly or even simply miss-time your swing and you could potentially

pull or tear muscles, separate your shoulder or other joints, and require surgery to correct these

problems. Golf injuries are actually extremely common and nasty in many cases. For this reason,

more and more keen golf enthusiasts are choosing to work with a personal trainer to help them

improve their golf fitness.

 

You can prevent injury – This is arguably the most common reason that people choose to hire

personal trainers to assist them . A certified personal trainer will design a tailored program to help

you strengthen muscles, ligaments, tendons and even bones. Resistance training is also a great

way to correct muscular and mechanic imbalance due to the repetition of specific golf motion. By

restoring the elasticity of your tissues, flexibility work under the supervision of a qualified trainer

also helps to stay injury free.

 

You get fitter – Believe it or not, cardiovascular fitness and conditioning is now a very important

aspect in any golfer’s game. If a golfer is relatively fit and healthy, this gives them a great advantage

against any opposition that happens to be slightly less fit. If swinging your club and reaching your

ball tires you out, then this will obviously affect your game and, as you know, golf is a game that

relies on consistency.

 

You improve flexibility – Personal trainers will be able to show you stretches, exercises, and

activities designed to help significantly boost your flexibility. Better flexibility means you’ll be more

mobile. Better mobility means you can swing your club the way it should be swung and allow you to

better rotate your hips, core, and shoulders so as to maximize the effects of each swing you take.

You will add yards to your drive – As you will be fitter, stronger, more flexible and mobile, you’ll

now be able to hit the ball the way it should be hit. A perfect drive from the tee is essential if you

wish to get the best possible score you can.
