Having a golf trainer in your corner to give you guidance, motivation and ongoing, cutting-edge golf fitness ifnformation will put you leaps and bounds above your playing partners and competitors.
An experienced golf trainer will be able to diagnose your current level of fitness, physical limitations and prescribe right program for you in which you will make most of your time and money.
I hear so many horror stories of a 'general' fitness trainer calling himself a golf trainer only to end up making client (golfers' ) game even worse.
How discouraging would that be?
A qualified golf trainer will not only have appropriate education and background, but have a deep understanding of golf swing and mechanics. And be able to apply his/her exercise physiology knowledge to benefit of golfer.
Upon meeting a potential golf trainer you should ask some golf-specific questions to test golf trainers' knowledge of golf. You'll know in less than one minute if they in fact do know something about golf swing. If you have least bit of hesitation, move on to next golf trainer until you find one you feel will help you most.
Now bad news!
A golf trainer is a specialized professional and will not be cheap. Most of you will not have the luxury to have a golf trainer one time, let alone 3 to 5 times a week, every week. This would cost in thousands of dollars every month.
The average, ‘qualified’ golf fitness expert will charge anywhere from a low of $40 per session to a high of over $250. The more experienced golf trainer, more they will charge.
So what are you options if above scenario is a little too out of your economic reality?
