    This course will provide you with a better understanding of the flexibility and stabilization necessary to improve the golf swing. In addition, you can use the information in this course to support clients who are long-time golfers so they can continue to play the game.

    "This course has given me excellent knowledge to help me not only improve posture and strength for my golfing clients, but I also use the evaluations and exercises for my tennis playing clients and general clients that have posture faults due to standing long periods of time or tightness in the back areas. I will use this information for clients who are active in golf, tennis and other sports that really need upper body flexibility; and can use the programming for clients who have issues with their posture. I'm really glad I got this program. The pictures were really helpful regarding the bad postures so I can recognize them immediately in clients and be able to fix them. I also like how simple the evaluation, program design, and progression structure shown in the course. While I was learning I started applying the info and my clients really appreciated it and can see the difference.”

    Excellent program, highly recommend to increase knowledge and offers specific exercises for improving clients postural imbalances. The course provides information to improve an individual"s golf game by breaking the process down and applying specific exercises to improve by stretching or strengthening the muscle while maintaining good posture and balance. The course provided information on assessment of postural dysfunctions, balance, flexibility, strength and endurance that can be applied to any client. Lots of good exercises from simple to complex using the ball. Exercises that will be helpful for diverse client needs.

    Extremely informative course. The written course materials had content validity and were nicely presented. The two DVDs were perfect supplements to the written materials. Plenty of resource material for the golf specialist.

    The postural assessments and appropriate stretches and strengthening were very useful. I have already implemented with several of my non-golfing clients and I am looking forward to using it for my own golf game along with other golfing clients.

    The course provided me with a good understanding of the relationship between strength/flexibility and the golf swing. It will help me teach clients and friends about the relationship of strength/flexibility to the golf swing and I will definitely incorporate it into my own golf game.

    One of the best CECs I have taken. Nice addition to current certification to work with specialty clients. I found the information extremely helpful in working with golfers to improve sports performance & prevent/rehab golf related injuries. Highly recommend this course.

    This is a very good course. Lots of great information and knowledge to use with those that are looking to train clients interested in golf or are interested in improving their own golf game. I highly recommend you looking into buying this course if you or clients you know love to play golf.

    This course was very helpful. I work in a retirement community and many of our residents love to golf and wish to improve their game, as they have noted age-related declines in their games over time. This course enables me to understand the physical requirements of the game better so I may provide improved assessments and appropriate exercises. I was impressed by the comprehensive nature of the exam required for this course.

    I'm an ACE certified Personal Trainer and I'm looking to expand into the golf fitness training field. The information in the book was clear, concise and easy to follow, but still very informative and useful. The DVDs were also great additions. There is a great selection of exercises and stretches specifically for the sport. I already know a good amount about golf, but there was still plenty of information that I needed. Gina was great to work with! She was able to help me out with my time constraints and made the ordering and completion process stress-free. I would definitely recommend this course. I look forward to getting more CECs from GMP fitness!

    Very informative and well-organized. Course included detailed information regarding common golf injuries, on-course wellness tips including pre, mid and late-round stretches, nutrition/hydration, skin, eye and foot care to name a few. I also found the Marketing tips at the end to be quite useful. Well-rounded course!

    Great exercise plans, and accompanying DVDs were great additions. I will be incorporating many of the assessment techniques and exercises into a group golf fitness class, as well as individual client sessions.

    The golf conditioning specialist course was not only informative but also helped myself and my personal train clients to improve their flexibility at the same time as their game. What a great set of skills to have - thank you GMP!!
