Attention golfers

Get flexible and strong

It’s never been easier to start your own personal journey with Golf Pilates. You can access recorded videos to work on your flexibility and strength at home. If you have an injury or something specific you want to work on, please don’t hesitate to contact us first.

You can work with an instructor virtually or in the studio. Private sessions help you focus, target muscle groups and change movement patterns. If virtual live group sessions are your thing we’ve got that too! Perhaps join us for a Golf + Pilates trip to Portugal or Greece.

Where to start

You can book an appointment, virtual or face to face, on the link below or go to the Book Now page to send an email. If you prefer to start on your own, scroll down for videos and courses. Pilates is not a quick fix. It works best as a programme and we suggest you set aside time for 5 to 10 sessions to learn the names of the exercises and how to perform them. If you get the bug and continue we’ll promise you that you will feel like a new person!

Programme

In 5 sessions you will learn techniques to keep your joints healthy, work the right muscle groups and increase flexibility. Your level of Pilates will depend on your current fitness level, existing injuries and how much time you spend to train the body.

After 10 sessions you will have more in-depth skills and start noticing different muscle tone, improvement in posture and alignment of joints. Linda is also happy to discuss your current golf-swing and any improvements or changes you are trying to make. Book private sessions or group classes to start.

Key Points

ABC’s of Golf Pilates

A for Alignment

Getting your joints in the right position is essential for a good golf swing. It is also the first thing you look at in Pilates.

B for Breathing

Correct breathing technique will help you connect to your core muscles, relax the body and rotate better in the golf swing.

C for Core connection

Strengthening your core muscles and understanding how the core works with the rest of the spine is essential for longevity.

S for Spine

The most important part of the ABC’S. Pilates challenges spinal positions with leg and arm movements to help improve your game.

Why so important for golf?

Pilates has many benefits including helping to improve posture and reduce the risk of injury, as well as improve your performance.

Pilates breathing stretches the small muscles between the ribs. This is perfect for golfers as we have least flexibility in this area of the spine, stretching them increases a golfer’s ability to rotate.

Confidence on the course

Golfers of all levels have bad days on the course. Shoulders move forward, the head drops, and then the swing goes. Train your body and mind so despite a bad shot you are in control of your posture! You walk tall, focus on your breathing routine and alignment.

Ball striking & distance control

If your ball striking is lacking there could be potential physical causes that could be improved by Pilates exercises. See images of common swing faults.

TESTIMONIALS

REAL LIFE STORIES

“I went out to play in the afternoon medal straight after our pilates session. I ended up with 38 points winning the Division 2 section! I feel a connection with my core muscles playing straight after pilates. A normal stretch before playing does not necessarily stimulate that connection in such an obvious way.”

Gary Ayres, Surbiton Golf Club member

“Really enjoyed yesterday’s class and managed to win my match convincingly, playing 3 shots under my handicap! If that’s the effect of doing Pilates beforehand, then I will become very keen indeed!”

Sally Coryn, Wimbledon Park Golf Club member

“I always thought Pilates was mainly for people who need rehabilitation after injury. Linda helped me understand that correcting the alignment of my joints and focus on moving correctly would help me stay injury free. Linda is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She knows what level to take me to so that I feel that I have achieved something. That’s not easy when you are used to lifting heavy weight.”

Daniel Smethurst, Manager B2B UK&I Professional Services Sales Team, the FT

“Linda’s passion for Pilates is impossible to disguise, and combined with her knowledge of golf, her technique and teaching style are unbeatable. Since I’ve had Pilate’s sessions with Linda, my physical movement has improved dramatically and I’ve seen the evidence in my golf scores.”

Cyrus Shroff, Broadcast Project Manager

“After one session my game has increased greatly. My ball contact, swing and setup feels great. Look forward to more sessions with Linda where exercise is combined with golf tuition.”
