It should be a no brainer that a good fitness trainer would be good for your game. Logically every golfer's game would be improved with one but you have to make that decision. Once you've decided a golf fitness trainer would be a good move for your game, one thing to take into consideration in the selection process is their own experience with the great game of golf. Details at golf fitness orange county. Are they familiar with the biomechanics of swinging the golf club? Do they understand the muscle function involved in the golf swing?One simple question to ask is if they play the game of golf. That's a start. If they don't even play the game, then move on. You might even ask them to swing a club in front you. A good golf fitness instructor should have a decent golf swing. If not, move on.A good golf fitness program should include muscle strengthening, improving flexibility, endurance training, awareness of how your body is doing, good balancing techniques, and good eating habits. All fitness trainers have a good strengthening program, but do they understand how to approach it with the game of golf in mind? They need to understand what muscles are necessary for a good golf swing and which ones need strengthening for optimum results.Stretching exercises again need to be unique to golf. If you don't feel the exercises being taught are for golf, ask the trainer specifically. If he can't convince you they are, then move on. Don't waste your time. The last thing you want to do is screw up your golf game by doing the wrong exercises. You want specific stretches for the lower back, your hamstrings and your upper back including your shoulders to help you with the golf swing itself.Exercises for body awareness will help put your body in the position it needs to be upon addressing the ball. If you can't get in that relaxed position, or it's difficult to do so, then the exercises you're being put through aren't working. Also you should be able to make a full turn with your shoulders. Just use some common sense when trying the exercises the trainer is asking you to do.When it comes to stability or balance, let's face it, you shouldn't fall down during the golf swing. You shouldn't even lose your balance. I know you've seen guys frail away and it's all they can do to keep from falling over after a big swing. The fitness instructor should be able to hone your body with exercises that will perfect a balanced swing and a beautiful follow-through.I hope I've said enough about the importance of finding the right fitness coach. You notice I didn't say strength coach. Strength is important but it's not enough. You want an all-round fitness coach who knows the game of golf intimately and what's involved in playing the game at the highest level. Your score will reflect the use of a good fitness trainer versus not having one previously.    Click for details.
