Components of Golf Fitness

Golf fitness is made up of aerobic endurance, nutrition, muscular strength and flexibility.

Aerobic Endurance is your ability to continue for long periods of physical activity. Its what most would say is your ‘fitness’ level. If you are out of breathe climbing the stairs then you are probably not as fit as you should be. However if you running around and not braking sweat you are likely to be in good shape and more than capable of enduring a competitive round of golf.

Nutrition is all about what you eat, how much you eat and when you eat it. Most would say golf is just a leisurely walk round a field but that they would be wrong. A competitive round of golf can use vital levels of energy you have gained from the food intake. It is important to keep yourself well hydrated and keep topping up you fuel source whilst playing. Although a fairly excused subject in the world of golf, nutrition is a key component when trying to be the best golfer you can.

Muscular strength is all about power. You only have to see how far Rory Mcllroy hits the ball to know how spending hours in the gym pumping iron (excuse the pun) can benefit your golf game. Want to hit those 300+ yard drivers? Hit the gym and engage a Personal Trainer to really focus on key areas of the golf swing.

Flexibility can be incorporated into the gym sessions lifting thse weights. A flexible, freely moving body can only help the golf swing. The swing uses most parts of the body so its vitally important to keep yourself in shape and feeling good!

Once you’ve got yourself in tip top shape you need to keep improving your game. One way to do that is using the #1 Golf Tuition App, Gateway Golf.
