Golf pro in gym sign-up to give fitness advice
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.”
