My fabulous Twitter pal @golferpaul, aka Class A PGA Golf Professional Paul Hobart, recently won my Pilates for Neck & Shoulder Pain audio in a Twitter contest. Here is his feedback, which I just love!
I recently had the opportunity to try Lynda's Pilates program for neck and shoulders, and I was little skeptical. As a PGA Golf Professional, instructor, and competitive player, I figured that my quick pre-round stretches and practice swings were getting me ready to play. I wasn't real sure what "Pilates" was, and what it had to do with my golf game.
2 minutes into the program, I knew that I had found something great. As I listened to Lynda's simple instructions, I worked my way through the movements. I found a few sore spots, and a couple tight areas, but they quickly melted away as I combined the movements, relaxation, and breathing. My entire upper body had a feeling of being released and relaxed into a light and energized state.
After the program ended, (which seemed really fast!) I grabbed a club and began making some swings. I felt an unusual amount of freedom in my swing, and it felt as though the club was actually swinging faster without much effort. Some of the restrictions I have typically felt in my swing had disappeared.
Can't wait to share this with my golf students...
