Similar to every year at this time, I am rededicating my efforts to become healthy and fit to improve my golf game. This is a traditional off-season approach to avoid becoming fluffy over the next 6 months. As I researched different possibilities to achieve my goals, I noticed that many sites claim “fitness and performance” as services they deliver. Looking a bit deeper I noticed that their views on performance were predicated on being fit. Therefore, instead of using ‘and’, I recommend many sites use the word ‘drives’ because it is a more realistic approach to improving our golf game.
Many of us experience players understand that fitness has many benefits outside the world of golf, but since this is a golf blog focusing on my golf game is definitely the goal.
I have yet to determine my exact approach this year because I am thinking of changing tracks. I am thinking about setting performance goals and developing a health and fitness program to maximize my performance. This would be a new approach for me, but hey what do I have to lose. As long as I improving my golf game and being healthy to boot, it seems that this might be a journey worth pursuing.
The first step, I would surmise, is to determine where my performance levels need or I want to improve. Actually, scratch that. I need to establish a baseline in specific areas of performance. Not sure what they are yet, but I will figure it out. When I do, I will be able to make specific improvements to help my game.
I realize that I am talking in circles, but this is a new area and I need to work on developing my approach. I am sure many of you have done something like this before at your jobs, but have you used the performance approach to improve your golf game?
If so, please share. I would very grateful for your advice.
So, you can see how I feel that fitness drives performance. To achieve specific performance milestones I need to be healthy and fit. So, this year I am going look at which plan I am going to use to achieve my ultimate goals.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
