FITNESS 2 CERTIFICATION

TPI’s Fitness 2 online class teaches the skills needed to run an effective golf-specific training program. This class picks up where the Level 1 physical assessment leaves off and introduces the TPI fitness evaluation. By adding screens for strength, power and cardiovascular fitness, a complete picture of the player’s level of fitness is ascertained. After proper assessment, effective training programs are developed to support the findings, first through the base foundation of mobility and stability, and then through proper strength and power progressions.
