Golf pro in gym sign-up to give fit­ness ad­vice

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - KAREN BRIT­TON

GOLFERS can im­prove their swing af­ter a pro player part­nered with a gym to in­tro­duce spe­cial­ist equip­ment.

Golf teacher Sam Mel­lor has part­nered with Any­time Fit­ness in Mac­cles­field to of­fer spe­cial­ist fit­ness screen­ings.

The tech­nol­ogy, called a TPI screen­ing, stud­ies how the hu­man body func­tions in re­la­tion to the golf swing.

Sam, a PGA teach­ing pro­fes­sional, has cer­ti­fi­ca­tion from the Titleist Per­for­mance In­sti­tute (TPI) which is well recog­nised for its ad­vice on golf fit­ness and swing tech­nique.

He has more than 15 years of ex­pe­ri­ence and said he is ex­cited about his part­ner­ship with the gym.

He is one of a num­ber of qual­i­fied per­sonal train­ers at Any­time Fit­ness spe­cial­is­ing in sports fit­ness for am­a­teurs.

There are only a hand­ful of cer­ti­fied TPI ex­perts in the area, so gym bosses say this is a very ex­cit­ing prospect for those liv­ing and work­ing around Mac­cles­field.

Sam said: “I have achieved my Titleist Per­for­mance In­sti­tute (TPI) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and am look- ing for­ward to us­ing this to help golfers un­der­stand and im­prove their swing, which will help pre­vent in­juries, im­prove mo­bil­ity and core strength and keep them in the game for longer.

“As the weather gets nicer, it is a per­fect time to work on your golf swing.

“It is great to have ac­cess to the fa­cil­i­ties at Any­time Fit­ness, where I will be of­fer­ing th­ese highly spe­cialised and per­son­alised golf fit­ness and TPI screen­ings.

“My mis­sion is to help golfers un­der­stand how im­por­tant a TPI screen­ing is and I am look­ing for­ward to help­ing golfers im­prove their game both on and off the course.”

Sophie Hoyle, owner of Any­time Fit­ness, has also com­mented on the new of­fer­ing at the gym, which is based on Duke Street in Mac­cles­field town cen­tre.

She said: “We are de­lighted to be work­ing with Sam Mel­lor in of­fer­ing those who wish to in­vest in a TPI screen­ing.

“We have the fa­cil­i­ties at our gym to be able to of­fer this screen­ing to both mem­bers and non­mem­bers of the gym.

“Many peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence golf in­juries and Sam is pro­fes­sion­ally trained to help peo­ple im­prove on their swing to min­imise in­juries and en­sure lon- gevity in the sport.”
