One study found that the average American tends to gain five or more pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve.

At the beginning of the year, many people are in a frenzy trying to ward off those unwanted pounds. You don’t necessarily have to diet and exercise like a maniac,  you just need to modify your behavior.

And don’t use exercise as a punishment for overeating either.  Exercise should be used to improve your life, not something to do “to work off all those big holiday meals you ate.” Think of exercise to add quality to your life, not as something you do to just cancel bad lifestyle choices.

During the beginning of the year, you may be able to sustain your diet and exercise routine for a while, but then as times goes by, it’s especially challenging to be healthy given our busy schedules. Acknowledge that you may give in to temptation and not be able to sustain a strict regime of diet and exercise. But when that happens, instead of throwing all healthy behaviors out the window all together, take steps to engage in the healthiest behaviors that you possibly can so that you don’t give up all together.

Ok, so that is my lecture for today, now what can be done to ward off those holiday pounds? Join me as I help you not only improve your golf swing, but also get exercise at the same time.

Where to begin-

Many of you may be eager to start a golf-fitness program, but are unsure of how or where to start. The key to developing a golf-fitness program to fit your particular needs is to find out what golf-related restrictions, if any, your body has. Performing a golf-fitness screen can help you give you a starting point and determine what exercises you should be performing.

Cardiogolf Creator and LPGA Teaching Professional Karen Palacios-Jansen will design an individualized golf-specific workout program for you combining Pilates reformer exercises with her unique Cardiogolf fitness program to help you improve your core strength, posture, balance, flexibility and swing technique to build more a powerful and repeatable golf swing

Basic-Golf Fitness Screen Guidelines:
  • Do not do a warm-up before you try any of the golf-fitness tests.
  • The movements should never go to the point of pain or discomfort. Stop immediately if you are in pain.
  • The trainer should watch you do the movements in different angles and planes of motion for the most effective evaluation.
  • Consult your personal physician before doing a golf-fitness screen or any other exercise.
How to Do Exercise-

You have 1 minute to do as many repetitions as possible of each exercise. Keep track of how many repetitions you get for this exercise.

Write the results down and keep for your records.

Squat on Slope-

  • Stand on the Slope.
  • Squat down as you raise your arms shoulder height to assist with balance.
  • Return to start position.

The amount of repetitions you are able to perform is your baseline. Retest your fitness level every 3 to 4 months. Your goal is to beat your scores for every exercise. Write the results down and keep for your records.

For years, I have been using a traditional step in my Cardiogolf routines and exercises. Although effective, I felt it was important to design a step that simulated a fairway to make it more ‘golf-like.’

You almost never have a flat lie on the golf course, so it is important to practice your swing on sloping lies to develop feel and stability. The Cardiogolf ‘Slope’ is curved like a fairway slope. You can vary the angle you place your foot to practice varies sloping lies.

Stay On-Course with Your Health and Wellness

Cardiogolf teams up with Zija International, the leaders in the Natural Health Revolution, to offer golfers of all abilities cutting-edge health and wellness products.

Would you change the way you eat if you knew certain foods could help you play better golf?

Managing your food intake, hydration levels and adding certain nutrients to your diet can not only help you concentrate and focus more on the golf course, but it can also help you keep your heartbeat steady as you make an important shot or putt, help your muscles fire faster for more power, help you fight fatigue so you can play and practice longer and even help you keep your cool after a bad shot. More importantly good nutrition is good for your overall health and well-being.

We all know the importance that fitness, swing mechanics and equipment can have on our golf games, but are you eating the right foods to sustain enough energy throughout your round to play your best golf? The best equipment in the world won’t make a difference if you don’t have energy to get you around the course. We do not hear as much about nutrition for golf, but rest assured that the most elite golfers of the world follow some sort of diet to provide them with the energy-output they need to play their best. While is it not yet the norm for golfers to follow a specialized nutrition program, it will soon become so.

By simply adding a few Zija products into your daily routine and making simple diet modifications, you can dramatically improve your golf game and more importantly your health and well-being.
