I recently signed my girls up for a junior golf fitness program run by a TPI Certified fitness trainer. In past years, my girls have participated in tumbling classes at the local cheerleading gym. The classes helped them develop strength, flexibility and balance; all good for golf.
At first, the girls were rather skeptical and the initial complaint was, “Why does everything we do have to do with golf?” I insisted they just give it a try, hoping that the class is mostly fun and fitness. I actually wanted to find them something healthy to do that was NOT golf. And we really didn’t want to squeeze in the commitment to a team sport such as soccer or softball. The girls decided they were too shy to join a dance program. So, options seemed a bit limited.
As it turned out, the girls loved the fitness program! They were even sore the next day (a sign of a good workout?).
The following week, it rained here in Southern California and the girls even voiced their concerns that the class would be canceled due to the rain. As it turned out, we were able to use our golf rain gear perhaps for the very first time. They had a blast and loved it!
Again, please share what you do to stay fit for life and golf.
