As we get older we lose muscle mass and strength. In the context of golf this leads to earlier fatigue, loss of swing control and the inevitable aches and pains, all of which impact on-course performance. Just as it’s important to maintain swing technique, keeping the body in shape also pays substantial dividends on the course and keeps you playing the game longer.At Kieser our team of Physiotherapists can not only reduce those aches and pains, our unique strength and conditioning programs can help improve your performance on the course and can assist your game in three ways:
Firstly, maintaining sound physical conditioning means you are less likely to suffer from game limiting injuries and your ability to recover after a long day on the course or from injury is enhanced.
Secondly, an appropriate strength training program will enable you to generate more power with less effort, which in turn results in a smoother swing and greater club head speed. The end result is longer, more consistent drives without the temptation to overstrike or muscle the ball.
And finally, of course, the most important aspect of “longevity” is not striking the ball longer but being able to enjoy playing the game for longer as you get older. The better physical condition you maintain the longer you will be capable of playing and enjoying the game you love.
At Kieser, our programs can be customised to the specific needs of golfers. We can design a program for golfers with musculoskeletal injuries and issues holding them back or for golfers just looking to improve their performance on the course.
We strive to strengthen the local community with our integrated physiotherapy and strength & conditioning programs at Kieser. Our focus at Kieser is on functional improvement irrespective of pursuits, age or condition. A Kieser facility is not a traditional fitness centre. At Kieser, we believe our clients should be able to train in a clean, bright, uncluttered space, free of any distractions so the focus can be solely upon training. This is why all of our centres have no music, no mirrors and no distractions. We believe this creates a non-intimidating environment that welcomes clients from all levels of ability.
If you have never seen a Kieser facility, we invite you to visit Kieser and personally experience the Kieser difference!
