When your deep muscle system is strong, especially your core, your body has more power, agility, balance, and better all round stability and posture. Unfortunately, modern life and many types of exercise actually weaken these deep muscles. GravityFit is a revolutionary exercise and rehabilitation system that strengthens the deep muscles you need to live, heal and perform at your peak. Suitable for male and female golfers wanting to improve posture, balance
and movement patterns.

Lisa's Case Study Co Written with
Nick Randall VP Sports and Performance...
I had one of our Tura Beach ladies come to me for a lesson last week. Lesley's in her 70’s, loves her golf and plays off a 45 handicap.
One of the first things Lesley told me at the start of her lesson was that she was experiencing back and neck pain during and after golf. I knew it was important to tread carefully while looking for ways I could take some strain off her back and neck.
Looking at this video, you can see that Lesley’s posture could have been contributing to her discomfort: Lesley is standing very upright – pelvis tucked under and shoulders hunched – not exactly optimal for swing mechanics, nor managing load through her lower back and neck.
You can also clearly see Lesley struggling with the low lefts, again not surprising when you look at how shut the club face is in her backswing.
To help address Lesley's posture, I introduced her to the GravityFit TPro, explained how it worked, and gave a demonstration. We worked on feeling the connection points between the back bow on her upper back/shoulder blades to achieve better shoulder posture. I also used the GravityFit cue of feeling lengthened through the spine, activating her core as she bent over from the hips.
We then used the TPro Back Swing Drill for a few minutes to help Lesley feel a better quality rotation while staying in balance. I brought awareness to how her arms and hands were interacting with her body and encouraged them to work more in sync with one another.
This was Lesley's first shot after using the TPro and the results were quite literally instantaneous!
Lesley's posture's so much better, the club face was much less shut and her body was rotating far more efficiently. Lesley was thrilled with the outcome and after several more shots, it was wonderful to hear her say, "It felt so easy and it didn't hurt".
I've continued to check up on Lesley over the past few weeks and she's a very happy golfer and is without pain. She said to me the other day, "My swing feels so easy and I'm no longer sore!" – a fabulous result!
My Teaching Philosophy is to keep the game simple and balanced. GravityFit is suitable for golfers of all abilities and has made a huge difference to my teaching in just the first couple of months of using it.
