Conditioned for competition

  • By James Achenbach
  • How does a golfer start a fitness program? How does any person, regardless of his or her golfing ability, get in shape to become a better or more consistent player?

    David Ostrow, CEO of Body Balance for Performance, one of the leading organizations in golf fitness, has some answers.

    Across the United States, Body Balance includes 32 franchise operations that focus on golf as well as other sports activities. Ostrow saidmany Body Balance clients begin their fitness programs in the winter, a perfect time for most people to initiate a fitness routine.

    Ostrow, a physical therapist, is certified bythe Titleist Performance Institute as a level-3 medical professional. He also is a member of the medical advisory board for TPI, which organizes and conducts the biennial World Golf Fitness Summit.

    The first step, according to Ostrow, is to find a certified fitness professional. TPI (www.mytpi.com) certifies golf trainers. So does Body Balance (www.fitgolf.com) and facilities such as the Chek Institute near San Diego (www.chekinstitute.com).

    The next step: Golfers must choose carefully between a physical trainer and a medical professional, says Ostrow, who is credentialed in both fields.

    “A medical professional focuses on range of motion,”Ostrowsaid. “A physical trainer is more concerned with the ability to move fast. A medical professional deals with movement dysfunction, injury prevention and injury rehabilitation. I call them restorative programs.

    “In simple terms, a medical professional is concerned with range of motion, while a physical trainer tries to improve a golfer’s ability to move fast. You might say a physical trainer super charges the body.”

    How does a golfer evaluate range of motion? Ostrow mentioned three basic tests.

    Test No. 1: Try to touch your toes without bending your knees.

    Test No. 2: Stand in front of a mirror and adopt the posture of a 5-iron stance. Cross your arms over your chest. Then attempt to rotate your hips to the left and right without moving your chest.

    Test No. 3: From the same position as No. 2, try to move your chest to the left and right without moving your hips. “If you cannot do these drills, you need somebody who can help you through the basics of how to move,” Ostrow said.

    “If you can do them and you have that range of motion, then you probably are ready to choo...
