Body Balance for Performance of New York Has Helped Golf Students Make Significant Improvement in Their Golf Swing and Overall Performance

HAWTHORNE, NY--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - Body Balance for Performance of New York ( has always believed the body to be a golfer's most important piece of equipment. Thanks to this unique approach, Body Balance students are seeing significant improvement in their golf swings and their overall performance.

"Our golf professionals and fitness experts team up to deliver complete screenings and suggest interventions to enhance health and prevent and treat injury while improving skills and technique," said John M. Winget, PT, DPT, of Body Balance for Performance of New York. "Our aim is to directly improve performance in golf."

Winget believes in continually developing his skills to deliver comprehensive programs that help golfers improve their game and their lifestyle.

"We use data derived from research and studies on stretching, manual therapy, and conditioning to create a firm physical foundation that delivers substantial benefits to golfers as athletic performers," said Winget. "Body Balance for Performance will continue to actively research golf health and fitness in cooperation with MIT and an organization called 'Better Golf Through Technology.'"

According to Winget, the results they've seen through Body Balance's golf fitness programs has been dramatic. The exercises they recommend to students work to eliminate pain and physical deficits that interfere with golf performance. Because of this, Body Balance clients can increase the number of rounds they play in a season.

"We routinely see significant decreases in handicaps and indexes, marked improvement in quality shot-making, and improved power, consistency and accuracy," said Winget. "Many of our established clients choose to participate in additional programs. They want more of what a golf health and fitness program can give them. They simply enjoy golf more than before."

One satisfied client, Joseph F., had taken lessons for years, but never saw any improvement until he came to Body Balance for Performance of New York.

"Before being involved in your program, I could only play one day and then I had to rest my back." Joseph said. " After working with you, I have dropped six strokes from my handicap, and I recently went on a golf trip where I played every day for a week. I still do your exercises five days a week and expect to continue to lower my handicap."
