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.
