Poor golf swing mechanics are often the result of a player’s physical limitations. A TPI Evaluation will help us identify physical limitations, which cause inefficiencies and compensations in a golfer’s swing.  Once those weaknesses are defined, a specific training program will be developed, which will help the golfer overcome these weaknesses and achieve a more efficient and consistent golf swing.

 What Is VO2 Max?
Perhaps no other training measurement is as discussed and misunderstood as VO2 max.  The basic definition of VO2 max is the maximum amount of oxygen your body can use during exercise.
The physical limitations that restrict the rate at which energy can be released aerobically are dependent upon:

•the chemical ability of the muscular cellular tissue system to use oxygen in breaking down fuels

•the combined ability of cardiovascular and pulmonary systems to transport the oxygen to the muscular tissue system

There are various physiological factors that combine to determine VO2 max for which there are two theories: Utilization Theory and Presentation Theory.
Utilization theory maintains that VO2 max is determined by the body's ability to utilize the available oxygen whereas Presentation Theory maintains it is the ability of the body's cardiovascular system to deliver oxygen to active tissues.
This Class will dwell into the importance of utilizing Vo2 max for personal training.
Is it relevant for weight loss?
Do we need to do have it assessed?
