Course Reviews

Having already completed the Golf Conditioning Specialist and Golf Wellness Specialist courses offered by GMP, I feel this course is essential in providing my clients with a comprehensive golf fitness solution. In addition to my WITS certification I am also a NASM CPT, PES certified trainer. I strongly feel CE courses like this one enhance a trainer’s ability in designing client-specific fitness programs and add to my credibility and makes me a better sports conditioning trainer for my clients. The Golf Injury Prevention Specialist is a great course for trainers that want to keep their golf clients healthy. As with any sport risk of injury is just part of the game. Having knowledge of what type and the frequency of injuries that affect specific populations can be a great aid in program design for the golf client. I would highly recommend this course to those that have already completed GMP’s Golf Conditioning Specialist.” – Robert R. Habjanic, NASM/WITS Certified Professional
