Choose from Three Options
In the game of golf, a sound swing can be the difference between snatching a birdie or sending another ball to the depths of a water hazard. David Ostrow and his team at FitGolf spent years studying the mechanics of the swing, sharing the results of his research in publications including PGA Magazine and Golf Illustrated, and even co-authored a book with three experts from the PGA. After developing his theories, Ostrow decided to put them into action as FitGolf, a nationally renowned chain of golf fitness centers.
Today, golfers can find FitGolf locations in a dozen states around the country. During visits, each center's team of golf experts works with clients to provide training sessions that increase distance, lower scores and help golfers feel better. Often, this comes in the form of body and swing analysis through FitGolf's three-part system. First, the trainers test your movement and body and then golfers strap on the K-vest, whose three sensors transmit power and accuracy data to a computer that processes it into easy-to-digest numerical and graphical readouts. FitGolf also measures metrics through the BodiTrak system, whose weight transfer analysis tracks weight-shift patterns and offers insights into lateral velocity, power generation, and body position. When used in concert, the three systems produce data that helps clients correct posture, positioning and movement problems that might interfere with their swings.
In addition to swing analysis, FitGolf centers act as headquarters for golf training of all types. Whether they're junior players looking to sharpen their movement fundamentals or adults trying to fix old habits, golfers can take advantage of group fitness training, handicap assessment, and myofascial release bodywork that eases tight muscles. No matter the focus, each program is results-oriented, as the company's glowing testimonials page can attest.
