Golf Fitness: Strength, Endurance, Balance, & Flexibility
The best way to become a better golf player isn’t just by playing more golf, it’s by improving your overall athleticism. Swing harder, hit longer, and drive your game into high gear with Drive Fitness & Performance. Whether you’re a weekly player who wants to increase your level, a high school player hoping to make the varsity team, or an athlete just looking to play better with dad on the weekends, DRIVE FP can help get you meet your goals. Our one-of-a-kind programs coached by TPI certified coaches, help golfers become stronger, more balanced, and less prone to nagging injuries.
The essence of every great golf swing lies in its efficiency. The question for every golfer is this: Are the proper motions happening correctly and in the right sequence to generate the most power? In order to evaluate this, the following two-step process is used:
- Assess, evaluate, and determine limitations in each person’s efficiency patterns.
- Correct them through exercise prescription.
Every golfer, in general, makes the same functional movements during the golf swing. The arms take the club back as the body rotates. The arms and body then rotate down through the golf ball and finish with the arms past the body. The pattern may be the same, however, the system that each golfer engages varies. Bone structure, muscle composition, and motor patterns are just a few anatomical characteristics that make everyone different. There is more to golf than just swinging the arms.
Whether you’re a weekly player who wants to increase your level, a high school player hoping to make the varsity team, or an athlete just looking to play better with dad on the weekends, DRIVE can help get you meet your goals. Our oneofakind programs coached by TPI certified coaches, help golfers become stronger, more balanced, and less prone to nagging injuries such as:
- Hip immobility, lack of pelvic rotation
- Improper knee bend
- Pronation of the feet
- Shoulder immobility
- Inefficient setup, pelvic tilt
- Spinal stenosis, poor lumbar posture
- Imbalance due to weak proprioception
If there is breakdown in function and any given segment it will affect multiple outcomes including, ball-striking, distance control, and trajectory. Our training sessions focus on training players to feel the correct movements that will make their swing more efficient, thus providing better ball control. Simple, effective drills are prescribed to engage the correct muscles at the correct time during the golf swing. As the player focuses on the specific exercises, swing mechanics evolve into repeatable motions. The game has reached a point where its participants do not need convincing that better fitness, biomechanics, and health will improve their chances of playing their best. Today’s golfers need to be convinced that their instructors are up to date with the latest information on the sport. Golfers want to trust their coach, instructor or practitioner. TPI Certification gives golfers that trust!
DMB Sport Coaching
DMB Training ‐ Dynamic Movement Based training which is functional in its movements. It is tri‐planal. Tri‐planal meaning movements are done in a multi-axis. DMB training balances the body and prevents injury; it promotes a range of motion, and it simulates movements that you would be doing through your life.

Researchers analyzed 56 published studies and found that employers see an average savings of $5.81 for every dollar invested in wellness due to improved employee health and a reduction in medical claims. This number exceeds previous ROI figures of $3 to $4 for every dollar invested. The analysis also found that employers with onsite health programs see (on average):
- 27 percent decrease in sick leave absenteeism.
- 26 percent decrease in healthcare costs.
- 32 percent decrease in workers’ compensation and disability claims.
“Organizations are doing everything they can to cut costs and increase profits, especially in this rocky economy, but many employers still fail to see the cost savings benefit in corporate wellness programs,” says John Golden, president of Core Performance. “What this analysis brings to light is that the benefits of corporate wellness are two fold. It helps improve worker health and attendance, and it significantly helps improve company financial health.” Corporate fitness programs are an inexpensive way to boost productivity, lower healthcare cost, and increase morale while keeping employees happy.
- Employees get in better shape
- Reduce Stress
- Increase morale and camaraderie
- Improve teamwork and internal communication
- Boost productivity
- Lower healthcare costs
- Increase employee retention rates
- Create a “fun working environment”
- Reduce absenteeism

IIT Intense Interval Training
Training in which an athlete alternates between two activities, typically
requiring different rates of speed, degrees of effort, etc.
Whether you’re a novice exerciser or you’ve been exercising for years, interval training can help you jazz up your workout routine. Consider the benefits:
- You’ll burn more calories. The more vigorously you exercise, the more calories you’ll burn even if you increase intensity for just a few minutes at a time.
- You’ll improve your aerobic capacity. As your cardiovascular fitness improves, you’ll be able to exercise longer or with more intensity.
- You’ll keep boredom at bay. No two classes are EVER the same!
Circuit training is an excellent boredom buster! Whether you’re cycling, running steps, jumping rope, doing squats, planks, or conditioning on the stability ball your mind won’t have time to wander, and your body will turn into a calorie burning machine! All fitness levels welcome.
Strength & Conditioning
Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.
When properly performed, strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength, and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, increased fitness, and improved cardiac function. Training commonly uses the technique of progressively increasing the force output of the muscle through incremental weight increases and uses a variety of exercises and types of equipment to target specific muscle groups. Strength training is primarily an anaerobic activity, although some proponents have adapted it to provide the benefits of aerobic exercise through circuit training.
Work your muscles in every way possible in this class designed to build strength, add definition, increase your bone density, and decrease your body fat by increasing your lean muscle. Research has proven that by adding lean muscle to the body you can speed up your metabolism and burn more calories when you workout and at rest. You will use hand weights, plate loaded barbells, tubing and your own body weight to change the shape of your body. No muscle gets neglected in this class!
