When an entire organization is dedicated to the research and improvement of a golfer’s swing, it’s only natural that health and fitness would come into play, so to speak, sooner or later.
The partnership that began between Life Fitness and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) more than six years ago was a natural fit, with the powerhouse manufacturer of cutting-edge exercise equipment connecting with the leader in golf performance and education. The result is a healthy match, with a meeting of minds to create some of the most innovative and dynamic programming.

Many golfers start the season with visions of greatness only to become frustrated when their game plateaus or even gets worse. One of the best ways to prepare before each game is to warm up your muscles and your mind. Done consistently, golf stretching exercises can help your range of motion, your strength and ultimately your handicap.
Dynamic golf stretches are the key to a warm up and involve sports specific movements that start with a small range of motion for the first few reps and increase the range as you go. (Static stretches should only be done after your golf game.) Get to the course a little early and do this pre-game warm-up. It should take no more than 10 minutes and allow time for a few practice swings before you tee off.
