Fit to a Tee - Rex Rehab Services
When It's Time to Tee Off
Proper equipment is absolutely essential, but it's imperative to focus on the most important piece of equipment - your body. To produce an effective and safe swing, you need strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. Notably, most touring professionals now realize the benefits of training for their sport and have begun to add muscle and work with physical therapists to perform golf-specific treatment and training. With our Fit to a Tee program, we offer these same types of services to help you enjoy a lifetime of better, pain-free golf.
About our Program
Fit to a Tee is a golf-specific fitness program for golfers of all ages and abilities. The program addresses the following areas that are vital for an efficient, pain-free swing:
The foundation, or core, of your body is your trunk muscles. These muscles help support your spine and help stabilize your body during movement. During your Fit to a Tee sessions, you will learn how to strengthen these muscles, which will help your golf swing and strengthen your spine for daily activities.
Flexibility and Range of Motion
You need flexible muscles and joints that move freely to allow you to consistently achieve a proper swing plane. Our program will teach you exercises and techniques to improve and maintain your flexibility.
Having proper balance throughout your swing is very important to your consistency. Strength training will help your balance, but our program provides you with specific balance drills and exercises that translate into a more stable swing.
Have you ever gotten to the 18th tee and felt like you were too tired to swing the club? Muscle strength and endurance, as well as cardiovascular fitness, are vital to your game. If your muscles are too tired to produce a consistent swing, your scores will reflect it. Fit to a Tee addresses endurance issues to help you last through your entire round.
