To fight high golf scores, some guileful golfers resort to drastic measures, such as cheating or training vicious sand-trap sphinxes to fling back wayward balls when opponents aren't looking. Stay on par with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a complete golf-fitness assessment and custom training program at Corey Taylor Golf Performance Institute (a $300 value).
Corey Taylor obliterates the bogeys of some of the most decorated professional golfers, racking up the most wins by a trainer on the PGA tour in 2008. A certified green guru and fitness expert with the Titleist Performance Institute, Taylor begins each assessment with a nutritional and biomechanical evaluation to determine how bodies are working through golf swings. Once limitations are diagnosed, a 3-D analysis is used to prescribe a program that attacks weakest links as ferociously as hoplite phalanxes destroyed ancient hedge fences.
Future wedge whackers leave with a six-week custom home-fitness program that's easy to follow, thanks to the workout-builder software and whiff-tracking tools on the Titleist website. After six weeks, trainees may experience shrinking handicaps, a fortified core, and the rare thrill of having seen the elusive double eagle soar in Taylor's private menagerie.
Corey Taylor's Sports Performance
Professional football player Corey Taylor always knew he was born to fling the pigskin, but it wasn’t until a serious knee injury that he discovered his true passion was coaching. It was during this time off the field when Corey began working as a performance coach at the Institute for Sports and Medicine, developing an appreciation and talent for the work while earning his credentials. Even after returning to football, Corey continued to work as a trainer at sports-performance facilities around the US for years.
Today, Corey teams up with a staff of fellow fitness aficionados to conduct a variety of sports-training and fitness programs at his facility. The coaches have trained athletes from all walks of life and disciplines—from youngsters to professional-football players to champion MMA fighters. Amidst the advanced training equipment of local fitness facilities, the trainers lead challenging workouts designed to enhance speed and agility, build strength, and prevent injuries. They also strive to impart mental techniques for performing under pressure, whether on the field, in the ring, or at a karaoke bar alongside professional Freddy Mercury impersonators.
