The weather is changing and the clubs are now ready to come out of hibernation. The only question is whether or not your swing is ready? Empower is here to help, even if you are already taking golf lessons. Empowerís Get Fit for Golf Clinic can help you improve your body specifically for the game. This will not be the culmination of general golf exercises you could get anywhere but instead a 4 part clinic that will help you better understand the swing and target your individual needs. Specifically, we will focus on all things relating to improving your golf performance.
Often overlooked by many golfers is the importance of stability throughout the entire body for generating consistent power and accuracy. In the first session, we will begin addressing these issues through postural analysis and preparatory exercises that will help you before every round you play. Session two will expand on these concepts by integrating mobility and strength training in order to improve energy transfer to the ball. The importance of coordinating movement for efficient power utilization is addressed in session three. Conditioning drills will also be incorporated to help you resist fatigue and stay consistent on the back nine. Finally, the fourth session will focus on how you can specifically continue to progress your game while reaffirming your understanding of exercises taught in previous sessions.
The clinic starts 6:30pm, April 5th at the studio.
