“I have known for a long time that Pilates has many benefits that would improve a person’s Golf Game, but now we have the data to prove it.”
Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Reform. A True Pilates Studio, in Saratoga Springs, NY announces very successful results after working with several golfers for 10 week increments to study the impact Pilates might have on the subjects’ Golf Game.
Golfers were assessed for Strength, Flexibility and Range of Motion throughout many areas of the body before their first Pilates Session, after the last and half-way through the 10 weeks. The studies analyzed the body mechanics of the golfers’ swing, and measured distance, carry and precision when hitting the ball.
All of the Golfers in the 10 week studies attended Thirty (60 Minute) Private Pilates Sessions over the 10 week period. The Golfers in the studies varied in level and skill from Novice to Pro. Male and Female Golfers were studied.
Results from the studies showed dramatically increased core strength, hamstring and shoulder flexibility, and increased spinal rotation to name a few. The Subjects’ Golf game showed greater precision, longer drives and improved swing mechanics.
Studio Owner, Meghan Del Prete states, “I have known for a long time that Pilates improves strength and flexibility and has many other amazing benefits that would help to improve a person’s Golf Game, but it is very exciting that I now have the data to prove it.”
