Do you exercise with the aim of improving your game, or are you just wasting time at the gym?  Proper golf conditioning will make your workouts more efficient and effective, AND you'll directly see results on the golf course.  Regardless of age or physical stature, your body needs to be finely tuned to shoot lower scores and play with optimal performance.  You need to start exercising efficiently in order to see results on the golf course.

TheSandtrap is partnering with Golf Conditioning expert, Grant Pettegrew of GolfConditioningNow.com , to share professional advice with us on how to take our games to the next level using just a few simple tricks.   Grant graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in health and exercise science (where he gained experience training the CSU golf team), is an ACE certified Personal Trainer, and an NSCA certified strength and conditioning specialist. His education has allowed him to understand the golf swing and the physical demands it brings. He is devoted to teaching golfers how to take control of their bodies and their game, and actively trains golfers weekly.

Grant suggests that in order to conquer this (sometimes) frustrating yet incredibly rewarding sport, our bodies need to be ready to attack the golf course using a combination of attributes:

* Strength for distance and control
* Balance for accuracy and consistency
* Flexibility for technique, distance, and accuracy

His 6 week Total Golf Workout training program includes Strength training, Balance exercises, Flexibility routines, Core workouts, and more. Every day is planned out and you will know exactly what to do.  Within two months, you'll be getting the most out of your game.

Though Grant is based out of Denver, his training program can be carried out anywhere and you will regularly receive pictures, videos, and email support. Grant wants to transform two lucky Sandtrap members to show us how well GolfConditioningNow works! If you want to try his program out for FREE in exchange for regular reporting to Sandtrap members on your progress, see contest qualification details below.

TO QUALIFY: Send a Private Message to 'ranjanis' on TheSandtrap with your Name, Location, Age, and a brief paragraph describing your current fitness level and goals.  Entrants must be over 18, able to provide periodic pre-scheduled updates to the community over the course of six weeks, and willing to share before and after pictures.  All entries must be received by midnight PST on July 1st, 2011.  Winners will receive further instructions by PM within one week of contest close.

In the meantime, check out Grant's intro video below and watch for training input/fitness advice from Grant (member name:  GpGolfFitness) across our forums.   If you want to get started on training with Grant ASAP, he has some great deals going on at http://golfconditioningnow.com/programs

Keep on answering the poll above!

The feedback is great to see, as it helps me create exercise programs that help golfers with their specific problems. The more information I have the better.

Are TST staff members eligible?

Great idea by the way, I've been busting my butt for the last 6 months to lose weight, get in better shape, get more flexible, etc., and I firmly believe it has made a positive difference in my game. So yeah, even if staff members arent eligible, I highly encourage everyone to enter, as it WILL promote a better overall game.
