Pilates for Golfers

Pilates is based on movement from the core of the body, as are most shots in golf. Core strength can help with range of motion whether this is through the shoulders or back and it can also improve hip rotation and back stability which in turn can create more accurate and more powerful golf shots.
 
How Pilates helps golfers

- Strengthens the abs
- Increases range of motion in hips and shoulders
- Flexibility is increased along with strength and balance
- Back muscles are strengthened 
- Lengthening occurs in the spine for better stability
- Breathing technique can help focus
 
Benefits in performance due to a stronger more stable core (the trunk, shoulder girdles, and pelvis)

- A more powerful and smoother swing by building the muscles evenly
- More distance due to increased flexibility
- More balance and alignment through rotation
- A decrease in fatigue as less strain is put on the body
- An increased range of motion in the shoulders helps to attain the optimal backswing
- Playing without the pain, rather than through the pain
