Golf Fitness: Get fit before you hit the links

Golfers: It’s no secret. If you get in better shape, you’ll have more success on the course. By getting fit, you’ll develop strength, better balance and a stronger core. And what does that lead to? More power. Better control. Longer distances.

And what golfer wouldn’t want that?!

At PlayBetter, we’re conscious about what we’re eating and how we’re living, as we know that our overall nutrition and fitness will translate into our everyday lives – and obviously right to the golf course!

If it was your New Year’s Resolution to get in shape or become a better golfer, why not go for both? There are some fantastic products on the market designed to help golfers get fit, which in turn, help their
game.

Check out some of our favorites:

GolfGym Powerswing Trainer – Masters

Although GolfGym’s resistance cords seem simple, they are some of the most effective ways to target and strengthen golf-specific muscles. The cords attached to either a left- or right-handed ProPerfect Training Grip, which is included. Then, the exercises that you perform imitate an actual golf
swing, so you’ll be directly strengthening specific muscles you need to swing.

If you’re a rookie when it comes to working out, the bands have different levels of resistance, from light to medium to heavy. Start with a light resistance, work your way up, then see the results on the course!

Trigger Point The Grid 2.0 Foam Roller

Simply put: These tools are awesome. My friend who has a bad hip swears by her Trigger Point, as it alleviates pain and rounds out a workout.

While athletes in every sport – from amateurs to professionals – use Trigger Points, they are perfect for golfers.

The 2.0 is 26” long and 5” in diameter, so it has even more room for you to massage you lats, quads and back. Beyond massaging and stretching, it’s a great tool that can be used for core exercises. As you strengthen your core, you’ll see the results on you and on the golf course.

The Trigger Point Grid 2.0 is available in four colors. See how it can lead to a better you here:

Orange Whip Golf Swing Trainer

The Orange Whip is one of our best-sellers, and for a good reason! Available in three sizes, the Orange Whip has a flexible handle and counterbalanced weights that allow you to feel your swing and improve your balance, core strength and flexibility.

If you use the Orange Whip regularly in your workouts or while training, you’ll develop a more consistent swing. In addition, you can carry it in your bag without it counting toward the 14-club rule.

GolfGym Balance Ball

Last but not least, one product I use every day is the GolfGym Balance Ball. While it’s a great fitness tool, it’s also a great replacement for office chairs. After a day of work sitting on the ball, my back feels great, compared to feeling aches and pains after sitting on a chair.

Balance balls are best known for leading to a stronger core. They also make you more flexible and can be easily incorporated into many workouts. By using a balance ball, you may find yourself hitting longer drives after developing a stronger core.

Get Loose, Get Fit, Get Golf Ready

For the past few months, we’ve spotlighted new devices that have blessed our game with high tech gadget goodness. 

Groundbreaking devices like the SwingSmart, Swingbyte, and SkyPro have changed the way amateurs learn the game and on-course tools from Garmin and Bushnell have given us the confidence to execute shots like never before.

However, while the merging of tech and golf means a better understanding of our swing and a fairly clear path to improvement, we still have to prepare the body to make those swings.

Today, we’ll cover some unique items that are fun to use and provide an endless list of benefits that begin the second you start using them.

Work out the kinks while improving flexibility, balance, and core strength with the Orange Whip Swing Trainer.

Another great way to prepare the body for spring is to use golf specific training products from GolfGym (Balance balls and Resistance Trainers) which features a complete golf centric resistance band training program that can go with you wherever you go.

And finally, there’s no better way to get your touch back than by actually hitting balls. Snow on the ground? No problem if you have one of Callaway Golf’s unique Zenith Golf Nets set up in your basement, garage, or backyard.

Featuring the latest in training aid technology and time-tested golf classics, PlayBetter.com caters to all skill levels and prides itself on providing world-class customer service. Our 60-Day No Questions Asked Return Policy is the industry’s gold standard and ensures that golfers don’t get stuck with products that aren’t right for them.

Until next time… Hit ’em well!
