Golf Fitness Evaluations in Pearl River, NY
Dr. Todd Askenas has recently been certified as a Golf Fitness Instructor by the world-renowned Titleist Performance Institute (TPI).
TPI's Philosophy of the Swing:
"We don't believe there is one way to swing a club; we believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a club. But we do believe that there is one efficient way for all golfers to swing a club and it is based on what they can PHYSICALLY do."
- Do you experience back pain during, or shortly after, playing golf?
- Do you have an inconsistent golf swing?
- Are you tired by the 15th hole?
- Do you want to continue playing golf safely into your 70s and 80s?
- Are you interested in improving the essential components needed in your golf swing?
- Balance, Posture, Strength, Flexibility, Endurance
If the answer to any of these questions is "YES," then we can help you improve your body and improve your game.
What does the Golf Fitness Evaluation Involve?
A player's ability to effectively and consistently hit a golf ball is dependent upon the proper balance between the ability to stabilize segments of the body, and at the same time, maintain mobility. This allows the golfer to generate force, and to transfer that force, through the body, to the golf club, and into the ball. Any breakdown in this balance can result in poor swing technique, inconsistent ball flight, and pain or injury.
The Golf Fitness Evaluation begins with a comprehensive history and a physical evaluation. The evaluation will assess your balance, strength, flexibility, posture and range of motion as they relate to your golf swing. Through the Golf Fitness Evaluation, we can identify any physical limitations or deficits and then assess how they negatively affect your golf performance. A customized golf-specific corrective exercise and conditioning program will then be created for you that will address your limitations, thereby improving your body and improving your game.
