My favorite client story

"Chris has been a huge help for me. As a 50-something golfer who rarely touched weights, I knew I needed to start an exercise program., but had no idea how to do so and not be counterproductive to my golf game. Chris is able to break down the physical elements of a golf swing and apply the correct exercises in a way that I didn't understand previously. With Chris’s help, I was able to regain my flexibility, I‘ve seen improvement in my physical strength, my energy and I’m able to last longer on the course." I highly recommend this Golf Fitness program,
Tony Howard Vice President and Controller at Real Page

My back bothered me for two years and limited my golf play considerably, needing to suspend golf for weeks at a time. I tried both medical doctors and chiropractors with no success.
In our first session, Chris Ownbey found the cause of the problem and provided exercises to strengthen the muscles.
In addition, my swing is now more consistent based on his fundamental concepts.
Chris thanks, Jim Johnson

I have increased my flexibility dramatically with Chris Ownbey's Golf Fitness Program"
Dr. Tom Stephens

My favorite exercise

Mobility in the upper torso is a must to achieve a full backswing with no muscular tension. Lack of upper body mobility creates tension in your golf swing, robbing you of club head speed and distance. Try a rubber band torso turn. Perform 10 reps 2x . Stand right side down the line with band in left hand. Make a 180 degree turn. Turn your torso where you can look over right shoulder and see right foot. You should feel the load in the right glute. Now take the right shoulder inside the fight ankle. This will correct early extension and load the left glute. Repeat 10 reps. Repeat on both sides.
