Testimonial form happy client.
I’ve been working with Scott for 9 months with a real objective to improve my golf game. I have been aware of the Paul Chek approach to fitness and sports performance for some years, and with Scott training me the results have been extraordinary.
We have worked on balance, strength, speed and endurance and always with the mechanics of the golf swing as the key focus in our sessions.
I am now driving the ball substantially further than ever before, and consistently hitting 290 to 300 yards. I am able to rotate further, and use the improved strength in the key muscles to great effect.
Before I started working with Scott I had a severe shoulder injury, consistent lower back pain and my endurance was very poor. After 9 months, my shoulder has improved to the point where I no longer suffer and my golf swing is free and full. My back is now strong and pain free, and my endurance levels are at an all-time peak.
Not only have the training sessions created fantastic results, but Scott’s guidance on nutrition and lifestyle have helped me lose weight and improve sleeping patterns.
I have used personal trainers for 15 years, but Scott is the first one to take such a holistic approach. His knowledge derives from years of experience and a dedication to his profession.
As an avid golfer I can confirm that training with Scott has been a real game-changer for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to dramatically improve their golf performance. Kevin
