Golf Coaching Physical

Jeff is a very talented golf fitness professional who has the unique ability to see the golf swing via what the golf club is doing and how the body is affecting the movement and performance of the club. Jeff helps us with some of our Canadian National Team players because he is one of the few people who can deliver the training techniques and connect them to the players’ golf swing.

GPC offers age-appropriate “athlete development” programs for junior golfers between the ages of 11 – 18.  Led by Strength & Conditioning specialist Jeff Overholt, the GPC staff has incomparable training and expertise in the field of youth athletic development.  The individualized sessions help players better understand the link between their bodies and their golf game, and learning is presented in a way which helps athletes take control of their own physical development.  After many years of refining our approach to this key element of golf training, we are proud to offer the very best in support for physical development for junior aged golfers.  By providing individualized training programs and holding players accountable for their ownership of the work involved, our fitness programs have consistently achieved results.

GPC Fitness Programs are based on the principles of “Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)” and take into consideration the importance of each player’s unique developmental age.  As an example, our programs are sensitive to the concept of “Peak Height Velocity “(PHV) which is defined as the critical marker of an athlete’s development through the teenage years.   The onset of PHV is a critical point in time which has impact on the skills that should be prioritized both in the gym and in training golf specific skills.  With this in mind, our fitness programs are highly individualized and designed specifically for each unique athlete at whatever stage of their journey is appropriate.  Our 2016 programs will be offered at Edge Fitness in Brampton and Peak Performance in Vaughn.
