We’ve placed the wrong expectations on fitness. There is no ONE result from fitness. This is just one of the concepts Lance, Lead Instructor for TPI Level 1 and Level 2 Fitness Seminars shares during this conversation.
Myth #1 – Fitness pros are out to steal your client.
A client doesn’t have to choose golf instruction or fitness. In fact Lance uses the term “pit crew” quite a few times to suggest the idea of a team effort.
Myth #2 – It takes 6 weeks to make a change.
“I’ve never built the same program twice”
Myth #3 – We’re going to ruin your golfer.
It’s all about making a plan getting closer to goals. Not just bulking up. Golf fitness and beach fitness are TOTALLY different.
There is no ONE result from starting a fitness program.
One thing Lance asks of instructors is to become educated in his world. Meaning that by understanding the body you’ll be able to better understand the role and needs of fitness in a training program. Fitness professionals are learning about the golf swing shouldn’t instructors be doing the same?
The biggest issues with certifications and continuing education is how are you going to make your money back. Lance covers a FANTASTIC concept you can easily implement. Who you should market it to. How you should run it. And what you can expect. (this is about 15 minutes in).
If you’re a golf instructors Lance believe you should go get help for you and your game from a TPI professional.
We also got some great questions from the Young Teaching Professionals group on Facebook. (great group by the way hosted by past guest Andrew Rice)
Some of the questions we cover
- Do students get longer when working out?
- How effective is transfer training when hitting a golf ball well?
- How often is injury and pain due to physical issues rather than technical?
