Yang Uses GolfGym PowerBandz as Part of His Golf Fitness Program
SANTA ANA, CA – August 18, 2009 – GolfGym and Coach Joey D offer congratulations to Y.E. Yang on his PGA Championship victory. He is one of many Tour Players who have made a commitment to improving their games by using GolfGym training products as part of their golf fitness programs. GolfGym products are standard equipment in the PGA Tour Fitness Trailers at every PGA, Nationwide and Champions Tour event.
“We are very excited to see Y.E. Yang win the PGA Championship,” said Ken Pierce, President of GolfGym. “About six months ago, Dr. Craig Davies, PGA Tour Coach and Golf Performance Therapist asked Coach Joey D to get him a set of GolfGym PowerBandz for an up and coming Korean player named Y.E. Yang. In a recent interview on PGA.com, Y.E. said that he was very happy with his conditioning. Now, we can’t take credit for him winning the PGA Championship, but we know that our PowerBandz may have played a small part.”
Dr. Davies uses the PowerBandz and the PowerSwing Trainer with all his golfers including Omar Uresti and Parker McLachlin. “Two pieces of equipment that I am excited to use in the updated PGA Tour fitness trailers are the PowerBandz and PowerSwing Trainer tubing products by GolfGym,” said Dr. Davies. “My tour players won’t use another tubing product after experiencing the effectiveness and superiority of these modalities. PGA Tour Coach Joey D has more than a decade of experience working with the world’s top golfers. He is now sharing his knowledge on effective golf training with the rest of us through these innovative products.”
According to PGA Tour Player Omar Uresti, “Most tubing equipment does not allow for a natural feel because both handles are connected to the same piece of tubing. The GolfGym PowerBandz utilize a separate piece of durable tubing for each handle so I can go through greater range of motion with each arm and have a more natural and progressive tightening as opposed to the sudden tightening I experienced with other tubing. I take the PowerBandz with me when I travel on the PGA Tour because they allow for a great variety in potential exercise movements with little room taken up in my suitcases.”
The GolfGym® PowerBandz are designed for the golfer looking to develop greater rotation, strength, power, flexibility and balance through golf specific movement patterns and exercises. Using these will help the golfer develop golf specific muscle movement patterns against resistance and ingrain those movement patterns in his or her body and mind.
The PowerBandz consists of a set of two 4′ bands with individual handles and includes a combination door and loop attachment. It can be secured in a door jam, on a golf cart, weight machine or fence pole for a warm up or total workout wherever you choose. It is available in medium and heavy resistance levels. The PowerBandz includes an Instructional DVD featuring Coach Joey D as he walks you through all the exercises he employs on the PGA Tour with his players.
Coach Joey D has partnered with GolfGym to bring PGA TOUR conditioning to golfers worldwide. As a coach on the PGA Tour for over 10 years, Joey D is best known for coaching Vijay Singh during a seven year period that was highlighted when Vijay became #1 in the world. Joey D’s coaching methods with Vijay were featured on an ABC Special, Practice Like a PGA Tour Player, which showcased Vijay’s dedication and work ethic to improve his golf fitness and performance, and a CBS Special, The Science of Golf, which focused on the biomechanics of the golf swing. Joey D’s current roster includes PGA TOUR players Jason Dufner, Pat Perez, Ryuji Imada, Jason Gore, Charlie Wi, Tom Pernice Jr. and Chez Reavie.
