Golf Conditioning Ratings I have improved my own golf game! Not only that I have been able to give pointers to more experienced golfers to improve their training. I have met with the head trainer at the gym I work with and we are now providing a Golf Conditioning class, and now I have a larger population of clients who are seeing me to improve their golf game!  Megan Tower, WITS Certified Professional  I thought the course was excellent and very well structured. I found it very easy to follow with the videos complimenting the text perfectly. I honestly could not find fault. Gina is undoubtedly in a class of her own.  Damian B. Donnelly, Certified Professional  I really enjoyed this course and would definitely refer others to take it. Thank you for letting me learn your techniques in Golf Fitness Training. I really enjoyed it. I have certifications in ball fitness, but I really liked how you linked your specific ball exercises to golf fitness training. I am also a physical therapist and some of these exercises will not only help my golf clients and patients, but many other patients, as well.  Lisa Mullahy, Certified Professional Golf Conditioning More Ratings
