5_star Having already completed the Golf Conditioning Specialist and Golf Wellness Specialist courses offered by GMP Fitness, I feel this course is essential in providing my clients with a comprehensive golf fitness solution. In addition to my WITS certification I am also a NASM CPT, PES certified trainer. I strongly feel CE courses like this one enhance a trainer's ability in designing client specific fitness programs and add to my credibility and makes me a better sports conditioning trainer for my clients. The Golf Injury Prevention Specialist is a great course for trainers that want to keep their golf clients healthy. As with any sport risk of injury is just part of the game. Having knowledge of what type and the frequency of injuries that affect specific populations can be a great aid in program design for the golf client. I would highly recommend this course to those that have already completed GMP's Golf Conditioning Specialist.  Robert R. Habjanic, NASM/WITS Certified Professional GMP Fitness continues to please me with their offerings and the information that is given is up-to-date and very informative. The most important concept of training clients to me is injury prevention. This course enabled me to understand not only how to prevent injuries, but to train my clients to have a better experience playing golf. I am going to add golf injury prevention to the list of the types of training I offer to my clients.  Marianne Pizzo, NETA Certified Professional I have gained important information regarding the best way to design a conditioning program for the older golfer populations. I have primarily worked with youth golfers in helping them train to become stronger, fitter golfers. This often limits me to working afternoons and weekends when school is not in session. In addition to being able to help them stay injury free in their budding golf careers, I can also market to the older golfers, more specifically the older, retired golfers who are available during the day. It will be nice to be able to use the information to make them stronger, fitter golfers and to help give them an edge over their competition. Course material is very user friendly and it was nice to have such accessible customer service when I had questions.  Dena Turner, ACE Certified Professional
