Congratulations to Christina Kim and Her New Physique

The Solheim Cup was played a couple weeks ago and I was impressed with the crowds, the appreciation for well played golf, with Michele Wi and with all the ladies with their enthusiasm and patriotism.

I was especially impressed with Christina Kim and the new physique she is sporting. She must be on a new golf fitness program. Over the years, Christina has gone up and down with her weight, but it appears that she has really worked hard to slim down which has to help her confidence and playing in general.

Several years ago at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, I saw Christina after she had slimmed down considerably and she looked incredibly different. Then over the next few years, the pounds crept back on and she looked like the old Christina.

That's a real problem for a lot of us whether we talk about gaining or losing weight or working out to elevate our own golf fitness level. Consistency is key.

This is a shameless plug for the GolfGym products, but they sure make it easy to dip into your golf bag, pull out the PowerSwing Trainer and do some easy golf specific exercises before you tee off. It not only gets you warmed up nicely, but it helps develop extra strength and more defined movement patterns which will definitely help your swing.

Get yourself motivated to do just a little and add on as you go. Push yourself to do 2 or 3 extra reps when doing resistance exercises. Jog/run for 25 - 50 yards every 5 minutes during your walk in the morning. Take the stairs instead of the escalator. When you are bending down to pick something up from the floor or to tie your shoe, consciously stretch your hamstrings for a few seconds. These little things are easy to do and the benefits add up over time. You will notice improved golf fitness in yourself.

I just heard that Christina may be posing for pictures in a magazine article. That would certainly be a motivating factor. Whatever her motivation and whatever your motivation...keep it up and it will pay dividends.
