Monday, July 06, 2009I'm pleased to have written my first testimonial for a fantastic Pilates resource, the Pilates Digest.
Pilates Digest (www.pilatesdigest.com) is one of the best resources available to the Pilates community. Recently the staff put together a Pilates for Golfers Manual. Having taught Pilates on the Green classes, I was very interested in this manual. I bought it, and found it to be one of the best Pilates resources I have purchased in quite some time.
Here is what I had to say:
Pilates has become a premier training methodology of choice for top golfers, and golfers of all ages and experience can gain the benefits of Pilates instruction. Instructors certified in the Pilates Method may have a lack of working knowledge of the game or its physical demands on the body to accurately design a specific training program to meet the needs of the client. This is where the Pilates for Golfers Manual offers an affordable and convenient way for certified Pilates Instructors to train and educate a growing client market, the Golfer.
Beth Begelman and Kelley Ranaudo have compiled a succinct educational manual for the Pilates Instructor. Pilates for Golfers is a true step-by-step guide for the Pilates Instructor. The manual describes how Pilates concepts are a perfect match to the unique combination of mental and physical needs of the game of golf. The manual includes pre-round stretches and a golf fitness assessment form for the instructor to aid in evaluating progress from training. Most beneficial however, are the chapters on the 12 most common swing faults found in the game of golf and how specific Pilates exercises address each of these. Beth and Kelley have designed a specific training program for each of these 12 major swing faults as a template to work and build from with your Golf clients.

The body is the best piece of equipment a golfer can bring to the game. The Pilates for Golfers manual is the best piece of equipment a Pilates instructor can bring to the golf client. A phenomenal value for the money, I can’t recommend the manual enough!
