Threesome of benefits 

Big beautiful swings come from explosive trunk rotation. Trunk rotation comes from flexibility and mobility in the player’s shoulders, hips and spine. Not to mention a strong core- your abdominals, lower back, glutes and pelvic floor muscles. The upper body, back and shoulder muscles are also supported by a strong core allowing them to go through the full range of motion required for that big powerful swing.

Deanna Zenger, Executive Director of Hole in One Pilates International, notes that the best golfers have strong, stable lower bodies and flexible, mobile upper bodies. Their swings progress from the lower body to the trunk, the shoulders and lastly the arms. Amateurs, lacking strength and flexibility in those areas, compensate by using their arms, which is a primary cause of slicing.

Pilates is different from traditional fitness methods like weight training and cardio. While these are valuable training tools, brute strength and cardio stamina do not translate into success for a golfer as much as core strength, overall stamina, flexibility (especially in the hips) and range of motion all of which result in MORE YARDS with LOWER HANDICAPS.

All age groups have different concerns, but everyone wants more power for greater distance. To get more power, muscle flexibility is essential for both the back swing and follow through. If there is any restriction, the golfer will compensate creating risk of injury. A flexible upper body is what creates the fast club head speed for long drives that we all envy.

MORE PLAY... with less injury and pain
In 2004, 44% of PGA golfers who dropped out of an event did so due to back pain.
