We have a lot of resolve when it comes to our golf game.
We resolve every single time we leave that course that, “Next time I’m going to crush it on the back nine.” “Next time, I’m going to get that swing as perfect at the 18th hole as it was at the first.”
We resolve to do a lot of things.
Until it’s time to make New Year’s Resolutions.
We make promises to ourselves and we promptly break them. We’re not motivated enough to keep most of them. Most are pretty idealistic and rip us too far out of our comfort zones.
Well what do you suppose would happen with your game if, this year, you resolved to do what you needed to do to get that swing right EVERY TIME once and for all?
Better yet, what if you kept that resolution?
Better STILL… what if you had help getting there?
I’m a certified golf fitness trainer and I have a challenge for you:
• This year, I want you to resolve to getting leaner and picking up as many extra yards as you can.
• I want you to resolve to be proud of yourself as you play on your favorite course.
• I want you to have consistency in your swing and the power behind it to completely crush it on the front nine and on the back nine.
• I want to teach you how you can improve your game dramatically by following a simple home-based workout routine designed specifically for golfers that zeroes in on the areas that need toning and strengthening for you to have a better swing and a better game overall.
Now here’s what I DON’T want you to do:
• I don’t want you doing random workouts. The last thing you need is to putter around doing endless circuits on machines that will only tone a couple muscles at a time and do it with no regard to which ones you need to improve your game.
All athletes (and that’s what YOU are) train for their specific sport.
Your entire body will still benefit from the exercise but those areas that you are toning and strengthening specifically to improve your swing will thank you with increased power, club head speed and distance.
I also don’t want you to buy a lot of expensive gym equipment. In fact, I forbid it. Save your money for something you’ll use because, even with the best of intentions, that home gym is going to wind up a part of the furniture before too long.
I don’t want you to spend your whole paycheck on fat-burning supplements and chemicals that offer unsafe effects on your performance.
I don’t want you to be in pain and start feeling de-motivated or turned off.
And I don’t want to hear you complain about time. You had time to watch that reality show last night so don’t even go there. Make time. It’s worth it and
you’ll thank yourself for it later.
If you are somewhere that’s snowy and cold right now, the timing for this couldn’t be better. If you live someplace warm and you’re just clicking on this
message after hitting the links, the timing still couldn’t be better.Because either way you have the opportunity to start making improvements
that you can see immediately, whether on the course or just in doing everyday things.
Over the next couple days I want to give you a short of checklist of things you should be focusing on if you want to improve your game.One of the best things you can do is get lean and stay lean. It’s the key to consistency and continual improvement.
After all, you’re an athlete. Don’t let the pace of your game fool you. You ARE an athlete and athletes train.
Athletes don’t make excuses based on the weather.
They don’t waste time on exercises that won’t help them in their particular sport.
You get committed to doing what you need to do to meet your resolutions and the rest will fall into place.
Wishing You a Positive, Powerful Day,
P.S. If the whole time thing stung you a little bit because its so close to the Holidays, I hear ya.
It IS a busy time of year.
I’ll give you this challenge: I want you, just for today and tomorrow, take note of any time you’re spending idle. If it tallies up to more than 45 minutes per day (and it will) it’s time to stop feeling stung and start getting lean, no excuses.
Excuses won’t improve your game.
