Take your golf training into the water. Fluid Golf Training is a unique streaming water based training program designed to help golfers move better, play better and prevent injury.
This program allows you to take advantage of waters unique properties and training opportunities that are not always possible with traditional land based golf training programs.
This program focuses on foundational movements, including mobility, stability, balance and motor control essential for optimal golf performance.
Dr. McAvoy will help you every step of the way by providing step by step instructions for each exercise. He will provide correct cueing for proper posture, alignment and stability so that you can achieve the maximum benefit from this program.
For Improved Golf Performance, Just Add Water
Golf is a one-sided rotational sport.
Given the repetitive nature of the golf swing it predisposes both professional and amateur golfers to injury.
Golf can create significant muscle imbalances and injury. As we age our muscles tend to get weaker and tighter which furthers this risk for muscle imbalance and injury.
Did you also know that 70% of all amateur golfers will suffer a golf-related injury at least once in their lifetime?

WHY TRAIN IN THE WATER?
Water is a surrounding medium and provides the body 360-degrees of support. This support helps to improve your body awareness and core stability which assists in improving movement and preventing injury.
The resistance of water can be up to 15x greater than air. This provides a very safe and accommodating resistance which means that the harder you push against the water the more resistance you will get. This resistance helps to build muscle strength and improve overall function.
Water training is low impact. The decreased weight bearing that buoyancy provides decreases the impact on your joints.
The water provides three-dimensional resistance inherently, so the muscular and neurological systems receive a more comprehensive training effect than land based training.
The water helps to enhance both dynamic flexibility and strength simultaneously. Having resistance in multiple directions builds balanced muscle strength and helps reduce your risk for injury.
The pressure of the water improves circulation to help with muscle relaxation, faster recovery rates and decreased delayed onset muscle soreness. At the same time, it causes your heart to function more efficiently provides increased resistance on your chest to help strengthen breathing muscles for an improved workout. These benefits cannot be easily duplicated with a typical land-based training program.
The waters properties including viscosity and drag allow for an increased challenge to improve your overall balance, agility and coordination.
Golf is a very power driven sport. Training power in the water has been shown to be just as effective if not more effective than land based training without the additional muscle soreness.
Training your body differently can help you break through a plateau and improve your golf game
By reducing gravity and momentum in the water it can help assist with your overall movement patterning. Waters properties allow you to train rotary movement more effectively. This will help with your golf swing mechanics.
It’s Fun: Training in the water does not really feel like you are exercising. You can’t feel yourself sweating and mentally you leave the water in a much better mood than when you got in. If an activity is fun people usually tend to stick with it.
The Fluid Golf Training Program addresses common muscle imbalances, dysfunctions and injuries associated with golf. This comprehensive program focuses on improving flexibility, mobility, strength, stability, rotary power, balance, coordination, endurance as well as movement patterning specific to golf.
Play Longer and Stronger
“I have had the opportunity in my 30 year career to be able to work with numerous golfers who have encouraged me to package this program because of the results they had received. I want to share my knowledge with you because I believe that the power of water has tremendous benefits and can improve your golf game as well as reduce your likelihood for injury”
WHY should you work with me?
My 30 plus years of experience in Water Training working with patients and professional athletes has allowed me to develop a unique training approach to water therapy, fitness and sports performance.
