Golf Pilates

Want to hit the ball further, straighter and more accurately with less chance of injury?

Whether twisting the body on a drive, squatting down to measure a putt, or leaning over to pick up a ball, golfers constantly torquing their bodies. Golf also requires repeating the same essential movements. As a result, some muscles become overused, and others weaken, causing an imbalance, resulting in the number one injury in golf, a back injury and pain. Over 85% of golfers will experience back pain whilst playing golf.

Many golfers – from weekend warriors to the game’s elite like Tiger Woods, Rich Beem and Annika Sorenstam – are now turning to Pilates as an essential training tool that keeps the body in balance and actually improves performance.

Heres how Pilates helps your golf game:

  • Increases abdominal and gluteal (bum) strength, therefore improving hip stability
  • Increase overall posture, flexibility, strength, and balanceIncrease range of motion in hips and shoulders, therefore increasing range of motion and improving power through the swing
  • Enhance concentration through focused breathingCreate a smoother and more powerful swing due to evenly conditioned back core muscles
  • Maximize balance and alignment while rotating
  • Decrease fatigue because of less strain on the body due to increased core muscle strength
  • Play without pain and discomfort or need for anti inflmmatory medication
