Golf Fitness: Shed Pounds to Shave Strokes: Drive the Fat Out of Your Game for Lower Scores (Volume 1)
Can you really lose fat and lower your score at the same time? Yes... but let me warn you, this is NOT for lazy people or those who are looking for a "magic bullet" solution. Shed Pounds to Shave Strokes is NOT a "quick fix". It's a SMART Fat Loss fix backed by scientific research to provide maximum results in the least amount of time. Oh, and did I mention that you'll probably add distance to ALL your clubs at the same time? That's unheard of. But the reality is I've had clients do it over and over again, and you will too. At the same time, I want to make sure I'm being very clear: make no mistake, this program takes work, and if you're one of these people who can't dedicate 90 days to radically changing your golf game and body - a change that you will be able to enjoy for the rest of your life - then please, do NOT invest in this book. But for those of you who are serious, those who are ready to put forth the effort, the Shed Pounds to Shave Strokes program will absolutely give you every tool you need to immediately DOUBLE your rate of fat loss and experience the game improvement you deserve. Does Shed Pounds to Shave Strokes really work? YES! I have designed a comprehensive 12-Week training program that combines balance, strength, endurance, power, flexibility and nutrition in a unique system that will provide immediate results. The workouts are structured around circuits of intense exercise that builds a foundation you will need to create a powerful golf swing. It is a total body workout that will help you lose weight, add muscle, and dramatically improve your overall endurance and conditioning. After trying Shed Pounds to Shave Strokes you'll understand why this program delivers results.What exercise equipment will I need? The ONLY equipment required is a pair of dumbbells, stability ball, a medicine ball and a chair (kitchen chairs work fine). The dumbbells do not need to be heavy, I myself only use 20-40lb weight for these workouts. Hand weights or dumbbells can be purchased at any sports equipment retailer. I specifically designed this program to minimize required exercise equipment, which keeps the costs down and allows you to get started right away. The first 4-weeks uses bodyweight only, while the intermediate and advanced programs introduce dumbbells, stability ball, medicine ball, and the chair. Who is Golf Fitness training for? Golf Fitness is for men or women looking to improve their golf game. Not only will you lose fat and increase your stamina on the course, you will also increase how far you hit your clubs.

The book offers clear instruction and includes a beginner program for those just starting and for those who are out of shape. As you progress through the first 4 Weeks you will notice you are becoming stronger and more fit. The program offers 3 full months of workouts and stretching guides. I am not overweight. Can I still benefit from the program? Yes! The program is designed to increase your endurance, flexibility and increase strength. All of which will translate into better athletic performance on the course. Christian Henning, NASM-CPT, gfs
An instructional guide to the perfect swing from one of golf’s most successful players and well-known television commentators.“A Swing for Life represents the ultimate collection of lessons, swing thoughts, observations, and discoveries that I relied upon in a career dedicated to the game of golf.” —Sir Nick Faldo Nick Faldo is one of the world’s most accomplished and well-respected golfers. His name is synonymous with the dedication that is necessary to reach the highest levels of the professional game, and the patience with which he analyzed and fine-tuned his swing rewarded him with six major championships. In this extensive book—revised and updated from the 1995 classic—Faldo draws on the wealth of that experience to demonstrate the skills that lie at the heart of the game, tee to green. Revealing a collection of absolute musts that underpin golf’s fundamentals, Faldo explains how to set in motion a chain reaction that inspires a flowing, repeating swing, a technique that can be applied to every club in the bag. There’s a whole chapter dedicated to timing and tempo, featuring the drills and exercises Faldo used to maintain his own trademark rhythm, plus comprehensive lessons on modern driving strategy, short-game technique, bunker play, and the art of putting. Supporting his teaching throughout are superb photographs, as well as twenty-six original videos available for you to download from the book, adding a valuable dimension to the learning experience in every department of the game. For veteran golfers, Faldo’s strategy on “working the ball” reveals the true talent of shot-making and control, while his practical advice on taking your game from the range to the course—the art of visualizing shots and reproducing your skills under pressure—is universally applicable. “At the highest level, golf is all about the respect a player has for the fundamentals—the lessons that have stood the test of time . . . and that’s precisely the message that I am going to make sure comes across in this book.” So says Faldo in his introduction to what is essentially a master class from one of the game’s most exacting students and prolific winners. A Swing for Life promises inspiration for anyone who has ever picked up a golf club.
