Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
David Wieber, Minnesota golf fitness expert and physical therapist for Body Balance for Performance, has stressed paying attention to a golfer’s balance when preparing for the 2006 golf season.
According to Wieber, not all golf fitness programs study a golfer’s balance. "Strength and flexibility are not the only factors a golfer should have assessed. Balance is an important component to golf fitness, but is one factor frequently overlooked by golfers," said Wieber. "When golfers don’t trust their balance, they can’t use their body effectively. The golfer doesn’t weight shift, and stays in the middle of their stance. Many golfers who don’t feel comfortable with weight shifting will reverse pivot--which means a big time lack of distance and accuracy."
Body Balance for Performance’s Minnesota golf fitness program assesses balance as part of their golf fitness evaluations. They use simple tests and high-tech equipment to analyze the golfer’s balance. "The DBS system has been an exciting addition to our Minnesota golf fitness program," said Wieber. "We see dramatic improvements in balance, swings, and accuracy after just one training session."
Balance plays a vital role in every golf game. Golfers who are interested in any of the following can benefit from the Body Balance for Performance’s Minnesota golf fitness program:
- Improving consistency
- Improving accuracy
- Less pain
- Longer driving distances
- Lower scores
Eric Chiles, PGA Teaching Professional at The Wilds Golf Club, said, "Not only has [Body Balance] helped my golf game and swing, but more importantly, it has improved my overall quality of life. If someone would have asked me if I would ever feel this good again without something drastic as surgery I would have never believed it."
