Fit Fore Golf
Golf has become increasingly popular over the years, and naturally a heightened interest in a sport causes tons of new equipment and performance techniques to arise. It’s nice to have excellent equipment to aid in your performance, however, it’s important to remember that it’s still your body swinging the club and making all of those repetitive movements!
Golfers use their bodies in ways that most people don’t from day to day. If you’re an avid golfer, you might have experienced a sports-related injury by now because of all the repetitive motion required to play the game. If this is the case, physiotherapy could prove to be very beneficial for you!

What Is FITforeGolf™?
Everyone has the ability to improve their fitness, and you don’t have to have a strict work out schedule to do it. There are several factors that contribute to being healthy and in shape, including core strength, muscle strength, coordination and balance, and cardiovascular stamina.
Many golfers don’t have a firm grasp of their fitness levels because golf is not the kind of sport that requires a lot of strenuous activity. Our physiotherapists at Dynamic Balance Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre in Oshawa, ON utilize FITforeGOLF™ exercise techniques to help golfers stay fit and healthy, and improve their game performance.
Our abdominal muscles are some of the strongest muscles in our bodies; the transverse and obliques are actually the main ones involved in trunk rotation. These muscles also help keep the spine stable and protect it from injury, making their proper functionality critical when it comes to golf performance.
The FITforeGOLF™ site lists the following abdominal exercises to help improve your golf swing and performance:
- Abdominal FITforeGOLF exercise (used to improve backswing and downswing)
- Abdominal side-bridge exercise
FITforeGOLF™ also focuses on teaching the proper warm up techniques for golfers , as well as stretching exercises. Here at Dynamic Balance Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Centre in Oshawa, ON, our physiotherapists will show you how to do general body warm ups, static stretches, and dynamic golf warm ups to improve your golf performance and prevent future injuries.
