Online Fitness Programs for Golfers - Here's why YOU should consider it.

Online fitness isn't the answer for everybody, but it can be a helpful asset for many. Below I am going to discuss three reasons why YOU should consider Online Fitness Training to become a better golfer.

Before diving into those, let's create the understanding as to WHY overall fitness is important for golfers.

[1.] Injury resilience.

Maintaining your fitness will help you avoid injuries AND overcome them quicker when they do arise.

[2.] Greater performance

Improved fitness will help you move more athletically and perform better on the golf course. It can help increase distance, swing more freely, and feel more confident!

[3.] Fatigue resistance

Greater fitness means less fatigue accumulating throughout a round of golf as well as on a swing-by-swing basis. Recovery then becomes easier and your volume of golf can increase!

But, why ONLINE fitness?


FIRST, cost.

In-person personal trainers and private gym facilities can cost HUNDREDS or even THOUSANDS.

As an in-person coach to hundreds of athletes, I definitely understand the value of being face-to-face.

Greater communication.

Easier to cultivate a relationship with the athletes.

More accountability.

I also understand, for most, how coaches arrive at their pricing structure. Fitness coaches play a critical role in the health and wellness of our communities, have an expertise that most do not have (all though many on Twitter sure think they do), and because of these things, they deserve to be compensated for their time.

I'm not hating on in-person coaching... I am one!

But, online fitness training allows for greater freedom on the part of the coach, and with this, brings the cost down for the athlete.

Which brings me to my next point... FREEDOM!

There are two points I want to make in regards to FREEDOM.

First, as an online athlete, you have the freedom to train on your own schedule.

The workouts are accessible on your phone (via our SCRATCH app).

No longer do you need to schedule in-person sessions days in advance, or hope that you can make it from work on time.

Complete the workouts when you want to, at your own pace.

Secondly, you are given freedom in the form of time and mental energy.

Maybe this sounds familiar: You are mentally exhausted from work, walk into the gym, and just stare across all the machines and equipment in front of you.

You don't know what to do, so you jump on a treadmill for 30 minutes, hit 4 sets of bicep curls and call it a day.

No more.

Online fitness training gives you mental clarity regarding WHAT to do when you step into the gym.

You have the exercises, sets, and reps on your phone.

No more stressing.

No more wandering.

Be efficient with your training time.


Third and finally, Individualization

I pride myself on being present for SCRATCH Athletes.

Questions? Injuries? Need changes to a program? Experiencing pain somewhere? Just want to say what's up?

I'm here for you.

As your coach, I am a chat button away.

While I believe that, in general, most golfers need the exact same thing in their workouts...

Strength. Power. Mobility. More MOVEMENT!

Everybody approaches training differently and maintains inconsistent past experiences, which can require individualization and a knowledgeable coach... which I try my best to be!

Online fitness training gives you the access to the personalized coach you need to perform your best and become your best self.


I understand online fitness training isn't for everybody.

But, if you have yet to try it out, now is the time!
