A program completed by Wayne L. Westlott, Ph.D.. consisted of 12 Nautilus strengthening exercises as well as stretching exercises. The research subjects trained 3 days per week for a period of 8 weeks. At the completion of the exercise program, the participants recorded a significant improvement in their driving power. Their maximum club head speed increased by 6 percent (5 mph), even though they did not practice golf during the 2 month study.

Prior to the U.S. Open, South Africa’s Gary Player, then 30, has won nearly every other important event in the world of golf. But until that stifling weekend in St. Louis, Player had yet to win the U.S. Open. The only problem that day was the heat. After 72 grueling holes the Open that year came down to an 18 hole playoff between Player and Kel Nagle. Player quoted “despite the conditions, I simply cruised through the round. I was mentally aware of the heat but it had no physical effect. I was so strong and so fit.” Player’s reputation stands as one of the fittest golfers to play the game.

Tennis
For tennis players who want to improve their game The Fitness Center incorporates a strengthening program to work the upper and lower body and core exercises.  Because of connective tissue issues with shoulders for tennis players it is important that we strengthen connective tissue and add strength without bulk.
