Forty five fitness trainers from all over the world gathered at the Titleist Performance Insitute for two days to learn the latest in speed and strength fitness training for both men and women golfers. We heard how golfers should be eating and drinking for maximum performance on the golf course and how Olympic lifting can change your world (both men and women).
Janet, Greg, Robert were our instructors. Janet is a triathlete, health and fitness leader and a trainer for many of the top LPGA players. Dr. Rose is the co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute and Robert is a Olympic lifting coach, trainer and nutritionist. Both Janet and Robert are on the advisory board and work closely with Greg to keep the TPI at the top of the golf fitness industry.
Janet Alexander gave us insights on how women golfers need to be trained by the week and even the best and worst days to do strength training to gain the most power and lose the most weight. :) Any woman golfer looking for a personal trainer should make sure her trainer is TPI certified and a level 3 certified if at all possible.
For all golfers looking for power and more distance, Dr. Greg Rose and Robert Yang went through a basic primer on Olympic lifting for power, gave us numerous speed drills to increase clubhead speed and the proper sequence for a golfer to work on getting more power into their swing. Robert also went through how we should be eating and drinking to maximize what we do have and how to keep our energy level more even as the round progresses so that you don't "bonk" on the 13th-14th hole....
