Tom Carlstrom has been training with NASM Certified Personal Trainer and TPI Certified Golf Fitness Professional, Steve Kois for over six weeks now, and he is hitting the ball between 40 and 50 yards further. Tom says that he has gone from 180 yards on his drive to 230 and beyond and his handicap will drop from 25 to about 17 once his wife’s scores are removed from his account.
He also says that he is a “believer”, but he wasn’t when he first started. “It opened my eyes to my potential despite my getting older,” Mr. Carlstrom said. He goes on, “golf changes when you turn 70…balance, strength and all of that. I appreciate the non-machine workout.”
The Train Like a Pro package which is a six-week commitment to a customized workout program with one of our TPI Certified Golf Fitness Professionals, a movement screen, a customized workout program and 12 one-on-one golf fitness training sessions (two per week for six weeks). Steve feels that committing to the package was one of the biggest reasons that Tom has seen so much improvement. He also tells us that he is seeing similar results in other players who have committed to a package. “The number one factor in the success of any program is committing to the program and adhering to that program,” Steve tells us.
By signing up for the Train Like a Pro package, the member commits to twelve workouts with a Certified Golf Fitness Professional, and the fitness professional oversees their workout. This ensures that the member has proper form for maximal safety, and it also means that the trainer can progress the workouts at the right times, challenging the member to improve over the course of the six weeks.
Additionally, we encourage all of our golf-fitness clients to work with a Golf Professional as well as our Fitness Professional so that the physical improvements that they are making in the gym can be relayed on the golf course. Having a “team of professionals” with the purpose of improving performance is exactly how the PGA Pros get better.
