Fit 'fore' Golf -- A Fitness Program for Golfers

Lakeland's Fit "fore" Golf performance program helps golfers improve the mechanics of their game while helping to prevent injuries.

No matter what clubs you select, no matter which ball you choose, it takes flexibility, strength, and balance to play well. Participants start with a physical evaluation and a conditioning program that concentrates on the fundamentals.

Based on the initial comprehensive evaluation, the golfer will receive an individual golf training program tailored to meet his or her specific needs. Typically, the program lasts 6 weeks, with 2-3 sessions per week. Each session consists of a 30-minute stretching segment and a 45- to 60-minute exercise segment.

Goals of the Fit "fore" Golf program are:

  • Improve the golfer's ability to make a full turn without restriction
  • Improve the golfer's "muscle memory" for a consistent swing by training on a "swing trainer"
  • Build the endurance necessary for 18 or more holes of golf
  • Help prevent golf-related back and other injuries by developing a stabilized swing and a strong flexible core body
