The newest issue of Golf Digest came out and has it's inaugural Top 50 Golf Fitness Professionals inside. Unfortunately I am not part of the list..... yet.
I really like the list they came up with. Obviously you will have people like Joey D that trains Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, Damon Goddard that trains Jordan Spieth, and Greg Rose one of the creators of the Titleist Performance Institute. These people are on the cutting edge of our field.
Then you have others like Ali Gilbert, she takes a different approach. She works with male golfers to discover their unique metabolism to deliver fat loss, golf performance, and optimal testosterone levels.
A group of guys out in Arizona, Premier Fitness Systems, Andrew Hannon and Greg McLean, who do amazing things for golfers, baseball players, and many more. They use a lot of range of motion exercises and techniques to improve a persons ability.
Another amazing person is Jeff Pelizzaro. He is one of the co-founders of 18Strong, which I would be surprised if you had not heard of before. He has also wrote the amazing book, "The Golfer's Guide to a Bogey Proof Workout".
Seeing the people on this list, I can judge where I believe I am. And then I can see how much further I need to go. I want to be on the level with all of these amazing individuals. Each and everyone of them brings something great to the field of fitness for golfers.
So I really just want to thank all of these individuals for pushing me to be better and to give them notice, I'm coming!
If you want to know any more about these amazing individuals, here are links to their websites.
