We see so many of the top professional golfers now spending a great amount of time in the gym lifting weights, using bands and even using body weight exercises.
This past week PGA Tour player Jason Day won his second PGA Tour event (the first FedEx Playoff tournament) in two weeks and his third event in four weeks.
Golfers are always talking about needing more power in their golf swing. Power and Golf are words generally related to Tour Pros like Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson.

You are probably asking…”What the heck does this have to do with a Golf Fitness Program?” Well, for the majority of golfers I have

In this blog, I want to focus on your “AWARENESS” of your posture. Although grips and swings may vary from player to player, nearly every professional….
We recently experienced the death of an old friend. This friend was with us for almost 10 years. During those 10 years we touted its benefits…..
If you are into any type of fitness program, or even if your not, I am sure you have seen trainers, teachers and/or golfers using a big colorful Fitness Ball…
No I’m not talking about Steve Smith with the Baltimore Ravens (formerly with the Carolina Panthers…our favorite NFL team…We miss you Steve)..

I received a phone call today from a gentleman who had purchased two of our GolfGym Training Products. He was suffering from the dreaded “coming over the top”
When I was a kid growing up, I would see my Dad shaving with an electric razor. I remember the hum of the motor and him running the clunky thing up and down and around and around trying to get every last one of the little stubble buggers off his face.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had a fairly good swing way back then. I had a “Bubba Swing” before Bubba did. Check out that Jack Nicklaus knee. You could put a watermelon under my left foot.
