Pilates has become a premier training methodology of choice for top golfers, and golfers of all ages and experience can gain the benefits of Pilates instruction.

The body is the best piece of equipment a golfer can bring to the game. The Pilates for Golfers manual is the best piece of equipment a Pilates instructor can bring to the golf client. A phenomenal value for the money, I can’t recommend the manual enough!

While there are several books, dvds, and Pilates teacher training courses geared towards Pilates for Golfers, to my mind nobody has yet come up with a clear, easy to understand book for PILATES TEACHERS that explains the golf game and swing faults in enough detail to allow any Pilates teacher to address strength and flexibility imbalances that are affecting their golfer clients’ game.
Pilates for Golfers is a brilliant guide not only for Pilates teachers but for any personal trainer who really wants to understand the physical game of golf and how to correct swing faults and other imbalances.
