Golf fitness 

Over the past few week's we have been forming a link one of Cambridgeshire's finest gym's, Cambridge Spartans, who are going to be providing us with some great exercises to help us get the most out of our body and help us improve our golf.

Here is their first update:

Hello, I'm Oliver Childs and I'm a personal trainer working for @Spartans

We are a specialist sports and fitness company with a team of the best trainers offering Personal training, sports coaching, nutrition and sports massage, ready to help with any golf specific training you require to help get your game to the next level.

We have recently taken on PGA Professional Sarah and will work alongside her throughout the winter to improve her functional fitness and biomechanics to take her game to the next level. Based at Barnwell Road, Cambridge -we are only 20 minutes away from the Golf Club.

Fitness Tip Of The Week From Spartans! 

Most people believe that it is our upper body that needs to be stronger to hit the ball further. 

If you look at the relation of muscle size of your shoulders and arms compared to your chest, back, and glutes (your bum) you will quickly see that the bigger muscle groups can generate a much more powerful swing. Strengthening these muscle groups will also help to sort out any weak or dead spots throughout your swing, giving you a smother, cleaner and more powerful overall swing 

Winter is the perfect time to work on these muscle groups and can be added into any normal day routine. 

Try this simple body weight workout to help get you started.

- Squats 
- Lunges 
- Press ups (on your knees) 


Level 2 (intermediate/advanced) start with 15reps of each exercises then 14..13..12..11 and finish on 10 
Level 1 (beginner) start at 10 and then 8..6..4..and finish on 2 

For best results you can do this workout 2-3 times per week!

Club News
Two common faults I often see with a driver set up when teaching are; weight too left sided , and open shoulder alignment. These are both caused by the alteration with the ball position for the driver. As it's moved left in the stance for a right handed player, the weight tends to go with it, and the shoulders open at the same time.Read more...
