MBSP Golf Fitness
I have been passionate about both golf and fitness since I was a teenager playing for my local high school golf team. For over 20 years I have been playing golf competitively at various amateur levels, winning high school, local, regional and national tournaments, maintaining a less than 2 handicap consistently. I have completed my Level 1 Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certification, SuperSpeed Golf Certification and am currently pursuing my TPI Level 2 Fitness and NASM-PES certification specializing in sports performance and golf. I believe that golf is an athletic sport and this means you must train like an athlete to perform at your best.
