As creator of Cardiogolf, I get to travel the country and share my golf-fitness program with various groups. One of my most fun events I do each year, along with my husband Olympic Gold Medalist Dan Jansen, is Winter Fest presented by Chevron to benefit the 49er Foundation at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic Park, California.
I had the opportunity to showcase my Cardiogolf Golf-Fitness Programs and to attend a yoga class taught by former 49er player Brian Jennings. Jennings is now a master yoga instructor and an avid golfer.
I love it when I get to talk to athletes from other sports and get their take on golf and fitness. Brian and I connected immediately with our love of golf and fitness. Brain is a big advocate of warming up to prepare nervous system, training the non-dominant side to prevent injury and practicing without a ball to master sequence of motion. All the same things I advocate in Cardiogolf. He gets me!
Listen to how Brian describes the motion of the golf swing and what he does to help the athletes he trains prevent injury. Watch video here or click on play button below…
About 49er Foundation Winter Fest
The all-inclusive Winter Fest weekend includes opportunities to ski, snowboard, skate and mingle with San Francisco 49er players, coaches and Olympians from different sports. There are daily events for adults and kids including Cardiogolf, yoga, ‘Chalk Talk” with players and coaches, wine tastings and dinners. All proceeds from 49ers Winter Fest benefit San Francisco 49ers Foundation.
The 49ers Foundation harnesses football to educate and empower Bay Area youth through collective innovative and community-focused strategies. Whether you are a 49ers fan or not, you will appreciate what the 49ers do for the youth in their communities.
