Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) July 13, 2005
GolfGym, the industry leader in golf fitness announced today that it has formed a partnership with golf fitness expert, Katherine Roberts. As part of the agreement, Roberts will assist in the development of new products, create instructional and training media products, and endorse the companyÂs product line. (To see the complete line of GolfGym products please visit http://www.golfgym.com.)
"We are delighted to have Katherine Roberts represent GolfGym and use our products in her training programs," said Ken Pierce, President, GolfGym. "Katherine is a recognized leader in golf fitness and her involvement in the company validates the exceptional quality and effectiveness of our fitness products."
In addition to endorsing GolfGym and assisting in new product development, Katherine Roberts will be featured in new videos for the GolfGym PowerSwing Trainer, weighted GolfGym Club, and GolfGym Balance Ball. Roberts will also be featured on packaging and promotional materials for the companyÂs entire product line.
"Since incorporating GolfGym products into my fitness programs, I have been able to offer a more effective level of golf-specific training and conditioning to my students,Â said Roberts. ÂI am thrilled to be associated with GolfGym and look forward to a great partnership."
GolfGym products include the PowerSwing Trainer, which was first introduced in 1987, and the GolfGym Club 38 (about 2.4 pounds) and Club 28 (about 1.75 pounds) weighted trainers, which were introduced in early 2005. GolfGym products have been featured recently on The Golf Channel in segments hosted by Roberts and have also been used by contestants on the The Golf Channel Makeover Challenge hosted by Roberts and golf style guru, Marty Hackel.
The patented PowerSwing Trainer is a unique training and conditioning tool designed to develop proper swing habits and muscle memory, improve club control and shot accuracy, build strength to add distance, and develop better balance and posture. The PowerSwing Trainer comes packaged in either a Personal Edition for $39.95 or a Masters Edition for $69.95. Both versions include a ProPerfect training grip, a latex PowerCord (a medium resistance for the Personal Edition and a light, medium and heavy resistance for the Masters Edition), door attachment, instruction manual, pre-round warm up card, instructional DVD and a convenient carrying bag.
The new golf-balanced Club 38 (about 2.4 pounds) and Club 28 (about 1.75 pounds) are perfect complements to the well-established PowerSwing Trainer. The clubs are proportionately weighted with the overall weight distributed the same as a traditional club, which makes them perfect as a warm up tool for golfers prior to their rounds or in a training regiment. By weighting them in proportion to a standard club, the GolfGym Club simply accentuates a golf club's natural feel. Its weight makes it easier to keep track of the head as it pulls the golfer through his or her swing. The GolfGym Club 38 and Club 28 each retail for $59.95.
GolfGym LLC, a Santa Ana, CA based company, is the industry leader in golf fitness. The Original PowerSwing Trainer has been used by golfers, trainers, coaches and therapists for over 18 years. In 2005, GolfGym added a new line of golf-balanced weighted trainers, the GolfGym Club 38 and GolfGym Club 28. GolfGym products are available in over 200 retail locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, and on their website at http://www.golfgym.com.
