Golf Wellness Ratings

The course has given me a clear understanding how I can prevent my clients from getting injuries while playing golf. It also provides great examples of how a golfer can improve their golf mechanics and energy when playing golf. I look forward to educating my golfers on how to warm up, stretch and eat properly when golfing, so they can get the most out of their game.  Michael Koprich, ACE Certified Professional 

Learned effective and simple ways to help golfers increase flexibility and decrease the risk of injury while on the golf course. In addition, the course provided ways to fuel the body during a round of golf. I will apply this to my work by showing golfers how to get the most out of their ability and how to stay limber and relaxed during their round.  Robert Suitca, ACE Certified Professional 

I liked how this went into detail of sun exposure. I think this was a great topic in the Golf Wellness Program. Spreading the awareness to my golfing clients the importance of sunscreen. Great information!  Timothy Craig Boswell, NFPT Certified Professional

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I understand more of the why certain stretches are important instead of just knowing they are. I now have a program that I can use to produce a golf specific stretch class.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great information for my golfing clients. I have many clients wanting to get in shape to better their golfing game and many don’t understand that preconditioning will help them tremendously this helped me get the basics for what I need to teach them.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have gained great basic knowledge of what golfers should be doing prior to teeing off and while playing a round of golf. I think I will market the 9Hole Stretch as a Special to learn these moves to help their golf game prior and during their round. I will provide a 30 Minute instructional session plus a print out with the 9 stretches and their benefits.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Valuable tools and key stretches/exercises for on course golf wellness. I plan on holding a seminar at my work! Great course, thank you!

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great course! Great info! Easy to follow and understand. Highly recommend! Thanks.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    That most golfers do not do proper warming up so they have a higher risk of injury. Teach clients to use the conditioning moves pre round, mid round and late round for best results. The Golf Wellness Specialist had great information, easy outline and the program is simple to teach..

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    A new outlook on training my clients. Training my golf clients will come easier now that I know exactly what they need to perform better.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    A new business idea. I plan to pursue golf clients. I liked the Golf Wellness Specialist and plan to take the other Golf courses for my CE credits. Thank you.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    A better understanding of the importance of the conditioning moves. future reference when advising clients.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is really a good introductory course. The on course conditioning moves are excellent for preparing the body for a round of golf as well as mid round and late round moves that will continue to keep the body loose and limber. My clients and playing companions will certainly benefit from the information in this course.
