Core and Movement Program
(emphasizing golf)

 

 

 

 

Absolute Athlete provides core and movement training designed to produce greater swing power and reduce injuries through increased neuromuscular integration. Our personalized approach starts with the identification and correction of underactive and overactive muscles resulting in the body not being able to support itself appropriately, such as tightness in hips/low back/hamstrings/ shoulders/neck/chest etc. that inhibits the natural golf swing. In this class, athletes learn specialized routines that train the mind and body to react and seek balance for optimal leverage and body position. Our dynamic warm-up increases efficiency of movement to eliminate wasted energy and maximize technique.

 

Our golf program is focused on core control – the body’s ability to control the core muscles that enable greater range of motion and power throughout the golf swing. Lengthening, activation, and integration of the neuromuscular system establishes proper swing sequence and allows for greater range of motion and enhanced strength in elongation.
