Gravity Fit Golf. What is GravityFit?
Anyone that has even casually browsed the golf market recently knows it is seemingly flooded with training aids claiming to help with everything from swing mechanics and mental preparedness to muscle memory (which would be great for Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster or the Tooth Fairy’s golf game, since, like those creatures, it doesn’t exist.) However, with so many products on the market, how do you know which are trustworthy? How can you determine which products will actually aid in the acquisition of golfing skills? To put it simply, follow the science.
While many companies make empty claims about the effectiveness of products, products that are supported by actual scientific research and years of clinical testing are far more likely to deliver results. One such product that Game Like Training is proud to endorse is GravityFit.
More Than Just A Golf Training Aid
More than simply a golf training aid, GravityFit is an innovative company that specializes in postural training and spine/joint stability. Initially crafted from the findings of a 30-year body of research conducted by Dr. Carolyn Richardson into why society, especially athletes, seem to be sustaining more musculoskeletal injuries than ever, Gravity Fit is based on the principle that when the muscle system is strong, especially the core, the body has more power, agility, balance and better overall stability and posture. However, modern life and many types of exercise actually weaken these deep muscles.
Who Uses GravityFit Golf?
The tools and techniques GravityFit has developed have an obvious application in the physical therapy world, but has recently gained significant traction in golf, particularly at the elite level. At the time of writing, approximately 10 PGA Tour professionals are currently using GravityFit equipment. Those Tour professionals are joined by dozens on the Web.com Tour, LPGA Tour, European Tour and other tours around the world. Furthermore, GravityFit is also used by the National Golf Programs of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Belgium, Slovenia and Dubai.
