Many golfers are apprehensive to begin a strength training program or they are uncertain how exercise will affect their current orthopedic conditions and are worried about becoming injured. This is my specialty, helping golfers address their unique challenges and bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be.

Golfers have 4 main goals:

  1. Hit the ball farther
  2. Play without pain
  3. Play more often with more energy
  4. Play better and score better

REGARDLESS OF YOUR REASON: A PROPER GOLF TRAINING PROGRAM WILL ADDRESS ALL OF THESE GOALS AT THE SAME TIME.

Knox Community Hospital's Golf Fitness Program has TPI Fitness Certified Professionals and TPI Medical Certified Professionals to help you achieve your goals!
