"Weight training will cause me to lose feel."

By strengthening your muscles specific to golf, you will have better control of your body. A sport specific program trains your body specifically for your golf game. When you improve functional strength, you have more control and balance, which will improve your feel. Strength training involves body awareness, muscular control, and coordination. These are all key elements for enhanced golf.

So in summary, golf conditioning can be done when you are in your early teens (with supervision), or into your late 80's. I have personally worked with people in there 70's and 80's who increased their strength 100%. This was partly due torepparttar initial level of fitness being so low.

My point is, that it is never too late to start. Search out a fitness professional or golf conditioning specialist to design a golf specific program and you will play better than you ever imagined!

Start now on your golf conditioning program!

Over to our right was a row of little shops and car rental outlets. We arbitrarily selected one and asked to look at some ofrepparttar cars for lease and stated we needed one forrepparttar 139419 week. We negotiated with a friendly agent named Gypsy who spoke superb English and we decided on a 7-year-old white Nissan Sentra with only 40,000 km. We didn't think about it atrepparttar 139420 time, but 40,000 km onrepparttar 139421 180 km island is a lot of driving, and suggestsrepparttar 139422 car had seen its better days. We completedrepparttar 139423 walk-around and we checkedrepparttar 139424 tires, which looked satisfactory as long as it didn't rain. The best we could arrange was a fair $190 USD forrepparttar 139425 week. It was a box on wheels with air-conditioning and a radio, with manual windows. We would discover our simple, run-down Nissan with spongy, springy seats, was one ofrepparttar 139426 better cars onrepparttar 139427 road.

The deal signed and sealed, we fired it up and off we went, map in hand. I wasrepparttar 139428 prepared navigator and Kevinrepparttar 139429 confident driver. We laugh when we think how na´ve we were.

Somehowrepparttar 139430 excitement, and unclear directional traffic signs, led to takingrepparttar 139431 wrong turn out ofrepparttar 139432 airport and we drove one pleasant and interesting hourrepparttar 139433 wrong way. At that point we should have known that we might be up for a bit of challenge.

Eventually we did find our hotel, which was actually only 15 minutes fromrepparttar 139434 airport. Our first destination wasrepparttar 139435 Marien Coral by Hilton. Situated onrepparttar 139436 Puerto Plata "resort strip",repparttar 139437 Marien Coral by Hilton isrepparttar 139438 last resort property before you reach Puerto Plata proper. As we enteredrepparttar 139439 resort, we immediately knew we were in for a special treat. Our first impression was one of awe.

The resort emits a sensation of serenity and decadence. Swaying palm trees linerepparttar 139440 circular driveway bringing your vehicle directly torepparttar 139441 entrance. Our car door was graciously opened and a friendly smile welcomed us torepparttar 139442 Marien Coral by Hilton. A chilled glass of fruit punch is in our hand even before our luggage and clubs are unloaded and we are led into an open-air spacious lobby, accented with a marble floor and inviting couches and a panoramic view ofrepparttar 139443 common pool beyond. The lobby teases us, offering a glimpse of what's to come.

Hilton Caribbean, a division of Hilton International, and Coral Hotels and Resorts decided to join forces in late 2002. As a result,repparttar 139444 Hilton Caribbean enteredrepparttar 139445 all-inclusive resort market withrepparttar 139446 addition of four resorts inrepparttar 139447 Dominican Republic.
