Team PFS is a group of like minded fitness professionals all with a passion for health, fitness, movement and helping people achieve their goals! Our primary goal is to continue to get smarter at helping you achieve your goals!
Today we have access to a lot of very beneficial things! Like the internet! With this access comes many great opportunities! But, it also brings a lot of information and the problem with all this information is not knowing who to trust and what information is the right information for you. We hope this is were we can fit in. Be the quarterback and connect the dots! Direct you to the fitness and performance content that works for your.
The goal of this post is to give you some pretty basic movements that can help prep you for your workouts, a round of golf or even starting your day. I am going to share 2 videos that will guide you through a great warm up and a warm that can be used prior to playing golf.
We like using body weight exercises and “flows” as tools to prepare you to train hard, play golf or really anything you want to do at a high level. The warm up is in many ways the most important part of your performance.
If you are interested in learning more about body weight exercises for golf and how to flow stay on the look out for our new golf performance program Primal Drive. Should be released in a few weeks. We are really excited for this this online plan.
You can also join our FREE Golf Performance Library and get access to some really cool free content.
On to the warm up!
For the warm up video we have a great friend Blair O’Neal doing the demoing. Most of you will know Blair from the Golf Channel and the school of golf.
Check out some of her work here. School of Golf
In this video Blair takes you through a golf fitness warmup that warms up the hips, spine, hamstrings, shoulders and core. This warm up is very versatile and can be used for a pre-round warm up, a warm up for your golf fitness and strength training and even a morning or night routine to maintain and increase your flexibility and joint health.
In the second video I take you through a similar warm up that is designed to be more of a maintenance workout. Although it can be used as part of your prep prior to playing or training.

We hope this post helps you in your quest for increased health and performance!

For Brandon, fitness has been his passion for as long as he can remember. In high school he was a three-sport athlete and received a scholar athlete award in football. Later, he attended Arizona State University on an academic scholarship and received his degree in Kinesiology in 2004. When he was a junior in college, he started Personal Training and has since turned this into his career. Brandon is a natural teacher who is passionate about health, fitness, wellness, and life. Each and every day he feels blessed to be able to do what he loves most…help people achieve a healthier life! Working with his best friend and having clients who he considers to be his family is one of the best jobs he could ever wish for. What he loves most about being a personal trainer is helping his clients achieve what they thought was the “impossible”!
Brandon’s philosophy is that exercise and fitness should be viewed as preventive medicine. If one takes care of his/her body today, he/she will stay healthy for the remainder of his/her life. His main focus is on functional training that incorporates normal daily movements which strengthen core muscle groups and help deliver a functionally fit body. This body will then be efficient with all activities, from athletics to everyday movements.
