Pilates and Golf

Why Pilates?

Pilates is based on movement from the center of the body, as are most shots in golf. It strengthens the center of the body, also known as the core (the trunk, shoulder girdles and pelvis). Core strength can improve hip rotation, range of motion in the shoulders and back stability leading to more powerful and accurate golf shots. It is also a full body exercise that works all muscles and is easy on the joints. The end result is a flexible, symmetrically muscled body that is strengthened from the inside out.

Pilates helps you:

  • Build up the back muscles evenly

  • Elongate and align the spine for better stability

  • Strengthen the abdominals

  • Increase overall flexibility, strength, and balance

  • Increase range of motion in hips and shoulders

  • Enhance concentration through focused breathing

Performance Benefits

A stronger and more stable core helps golfers:

  • Attain an optimal backswing and follow-through with increased range of motion in shoulders

  • Get more distance and power because of added hip and torso flexibility

  • Have a stronger and bigger hip turn for greater power through rotation

  • Create a smoother and more powerful swing due to evenly conditioned back muscles

  • Maximize balance and alignment while rotating

  • Decrease fatigue because of less strain on the body

  • Hold a body position long enough to play through a shot

  • Play without pain!
