Who Is Pilates For? #3 The Golfer
Hey where are all my Tiger Woods atttt?! .... Nowhere?... Ok. Good.
In all seriousness...
I know a lot of golfers for some reason. A lot of my clients golf, some friends, and I remember my uncle used to golf too. That's besides the point. I have found that golf is an incredibly one sided sport. Most people are not ambidextrous in golf. If you are, I bet you're famous. It's a lot of repetitive movement. You're twisting, you're squatting, you're leaning, overworking those same few muscles. Do you have leg pain? Back pain? Hip pain? Shoulder pain? Is it primarily on one side?
Listen, Pilates can balance your body (and mind). Pilates focuses on using energy from the center of the body outwards for each exercises. Golf is very much the same, making it easy for golfers to execute Pilates movements. Pilates will help fluidity, strength, flexibility, muscular imbalance, and increased range of motion in the shoulders and the hips. Your torso flexibility and range of rotation will increase; your balance will improve, and proper alignment will put less strain on the body, enabling you to play that whole game!
What more you could you want as a golfer? Nothing. Nothing except a hole in one. We're here to help. Not with the hole in one, but with your game in general.
With that I leave you.
P.S. All of the above also applies to my mini golfers out there <3
