How Power Coaching Works: 

Distance off the tee comes from 3 areas: 

1) Efficiency of the Golf Swing

 - There is no one way to swing a golf club, but there are inefficiencies that absolutely kill power. Our goal is to create a an athletic move that doesn't put a governor on speed

2) Equipment 

 - Equipment is the "easy button" when looking for distance. You don't have to have the latest and most expensive model, but you do need an equipment setup that matches what you're trying to do with your swing, and that produces ballistics conducive to distance.  

3) An athletes "engine" 

 - No matter how efficient one's swing is, or how expensive their driver, if they lack "horsepower," it's going to be difficult to produce speed. We optimize an athlete's engine in 3 ways: 

 1) Movement & Efficiency Training 

 2) Strength & Stability Training

 3) Power & Speed Training 

 The Result:

  By consistently chipping away at these three areas, we end up with huge gains. I know how to do it, and I want to help you hit the longest drives of your life.
