Kai Fitness for Golf Program

 

The goal of Kai Fitness for Golf is to teach you how to become a better golfer and have explosive golf plays by becoming stronger, and learning the proper way to move your body through the golf swing through a proven golf fitness program. Kai calls this “efficiency through perfect movement.” Along the way, you will also gain greater control, add more distance and power to your game, become stronger mentally, prevent injury, and get into great physical shape through proper weight training.

 

What Fitness equipment do I need to complete the DVD workouts?

 

You only need a minimal amount of fitness equipment to follow along with the Kai Fitness DVDs. You get a workout band with your purchase of the DVD. We then recommend dumb bells and a physioball. As you progress in your workouts, we recommend a chin up bar (door frame). That is all you need to get started!
