"The LeaderBoard is used to develop both muscle function and motor skill (movement patterns) and to aid golfers in all aspects of physical preparation. By using the LeaderBoard the golfer develops the leg muscles needed for specific golf movements which are essential for success. By building a solid base of support for the specific movements it successfully teaches the correct movement patterns needed for golf. Many teaching pros are using the LeaderBoard during their lessons in an attempt to expose players to these correct movement patterns thus enabling the golfer to develop a correct swing pattern more quickly. The LeaderBoard is also excellent for developing the core muscles which are essential not only for the golf swing but for any activity sporting or non-sporting." Vern McMillan – physical training coach for Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby & inventor of the LeaderBoard.
"To make an effective and permanent improvement in the golf swing you must be able to activate the muscles that create the desired movement and override the old pattern(habits). The LeaderBoard does this through immediate and direct targeting of the area that needs work. When the golfer steps off the LeaderBoard he instantly feels the difference. Through regular and constant training on the LeaderBoard the changes become permanent. No other training device that I have worked with does this with the simplicity and effectiveness of the LeaderBoard. I have been using the LeaderBoard for over three years with PGA Tour Pros and regular club golfers. The club golfers have benefited greatly as it has assisted in correcting the 5 common faults
1. -Reverse pivot 2.-Over the top 3.- Hitting off the back foot 4.- Coming out of the posture (lifting the head) 5.-Lack of power through poor timing and transfer of weight." Steve Bann – Swing coach
"Traveling week-to-week out on TOUR, I am exposed to new fitness products and gadgets all the time. Few stand the test of timeâ?¦and even fewer get integrated into my player program. The most impressive piece of equipment I have come across recently is the LeaderBoard .I highly recommend it for all golfers and personally now feature it in many conditioning programs I develop out on TOUR." Jeff Banaszak – Back 9Fitness
This is what the top PGA Tour players have to say about the LeaderBoard:
Geoff Ogilvy – 2006 U.S. Open and World Match Play Champion: "The LeaderBoard has been a part of my tournament preparation for the past two years. It is the most versatile training device I have ever used, and proved invaluable in the lead up to my victory in the U.S. Open. The exercises train those golf specific muscles to ‘fire’ at the right times, resulting in greater accuracy and longer hitting. Fantastic, I love it."
Stuart Appleby – 2006 Mercedes and Shell Open Champion: "I am not only a faithful user of the LeaderBoard, I am an owner of the business as well and I would not jeopardize my reputation on a product that does not deliver results – so many of the guys use the product on tour now that in 2007, it will probably be bigger news if a player does not train with the LeaderBoard."
Adam Scott – 2006 Tour Championship Winner: "I use the LeaderBoard not only to train my body to move with maximum power but also to technically reinforce the proper timing of my swing. I have to believe that, given my gains using the LeaderBoard, the amateurs who use the product will make huge improvements in their power and consistency."

The LeaderBoard is a compact training device that can be used both inside, as a portable mini-gym, or outside on the range as a very effective swing trainer. It uses variable resistance to build power and train the precise muscle movements training the body to deliver more power and consistently. With over 40 PGA Tour professionals, more than 100 of the top teaching pros along with thousands of amateur golfers of all levels using the product, the LeaderBoard is rapidly becoming the most sought after golf training device in the game today. LeaderBoard simplifies the complexities of the golf swing and builds the solid foundation using essential techniques used in Olympic sports, Martial Arts and Pilates. The sliding resistance platform allows you to train while swinging a club. The LeaderBoard allows you to perform a range of golf specific exercises which "lock" the trunk, or "core," in position and allow the upper body to rotate around this stable base. This is the foundation of the efficient, powerful action seen in today’s PGA Tour pro’s golf swing. LeaderBoard not only ingrains synchronized movement, but also increases the golfer’s power by strengthening the key muscles used during the golf swing.
