CORE Sports Performance, Inc. proudly announces the introduction of its patented CORE Golf Trainer®, the only hydraulic-based fitness equipment specifically designed to train and strengthen a golfer’s core muscle groups. A unique and innovative approach to golf fitness, the CORE Golf Trainer produces a perfect simulation of an actual golf swing to help users improve technique, strength and endurance. It is now available to sports training facilities, gyms, fitness centers, golf schools and athletic programs throughout the country.
According to the CORE Golf Trainer’s inventor, fitness instructor Kevin Cavaretta, the machine is unlike any other fitness equipment or devices in golf today. Rather than relying on pulleys, bands or other free weight resistance, the CORE Golf Trainer utilizes sophisticated hydraulics to concentrate its resistance directly in front of a golfer’s torso at all times. Through a series of exercise routines, the user can work all of the core muscles –upper back and torso, abdomen, hips and upper legs, even the forearms–which are the acknowledged sources of all power and repeatability in the golf swing.
” I designed the CORE Golf Trainer to provide an accurate simulation of the modern golf swing with concentric resistance, ” explained Cavarretta. ” This means that the resistance is always directly in front of the direction of motion. All other types of weight training rely on eccentric resistance, where the muscles are working against a force pulling in the opposite direction. From a golf perspective, this promotes imbalance and encourages the golfer to get outside his swing path. From a health perspective, our type of workout results in essentially no muscle damage, so there is little or no recovery time after a workout. ”
Company President and CEO Terry Koehler, who brings over 25 years experience in the golf industry to CORE Sports Performance, said he was immediately impressed with the CORE Golf Trainer the first time he saw the early prototypes.
“ The CORE Golf Trainer can be used on a daily basis to build golf swing memory and strength,” explained Koehler. ” It also provides an outstanding abdominal workout, which accents overall health and fitness, particularly with regard to back strength. ”
” But one of the most exciting aspects of the CORE Golf Trainer is its value as a teaching and learning tool, ” says Koehler. ” Because the resistance is always directly in front of the golfer, and the resistance stops when the motion stops, it is a wonderful device for an instructor to use to isolate various positions in the both the backswing and follow-through, and allows the golfer to experience the feel of a real golf swing in slow motion. ”
Koehler explains that the new CORE Golf Trainer is the only training and fitness product on the market that isolates all of the muscles used in the golf swing in the exact order in which they fire. The machine offers four main exercise routines that strengthen and train the muscle movements required for a powerful and repeating move through impact, as well as applications for putting and short game improvement. Each exercise helps build muscle power and memory by teaching the proper technique under resistance. And because of the CORE Golf Trainer’s unique and patented resistance methodology, the golfer experiences a quick post-workout recovery, so the machine can be used even on days when a round of golf is scheduled.
The CORE Golf Trainer can be purchased individually, or as part of a complete hydraulic fitness circuit with four to eight compatible machines to create a total golf fitness program. The CORE Golf Trainer has a Suggested Retail Price of $3,295, and carries a ten- year warranty. CORE Sports Performance offers discounts to high school and college golf programs, and has a dealer program that is available to all purchasers.
