get better, get smart.
At SMART Golf & Fitness Instruction, our experts will guide you down the path to long-term improvement in your personal fitness and your golf game. We know that every client is different, so we tailor the fitness plan to the individual, instead of trying to apply the same plan to everyone. This tactic rewards our clients with impressive gains in physical ability, strength, and form.
Our fitness facility has all the necessary tools to prepare your body for the demands of golfing. We are proud to offer a world-class gym that features weight machines, free weights, and the latest in fitness and simulation technology. We also offer our services virtually for those that prefer to work out at home or continue their programs while traveling. Our goal is to get our clients in great shape so they can be a formidable presence on the golf course. We accomplish this through the SMART assessment and guided sessions designed around each client’s capabilities.
PERSONAL FITNESS EVALUATION
It is your golf fitness instructor’s job to determine what your body is physically able to do. Your fitness journey starts with a physical evaluation to determine which movements you can perform efficiently, and which need work. This evaluation provides crucial information to your golf instructor, who uses it to identify gaps in your fitness and craft a personalized training plan to improve weak areas.
As you advance through the program, your golf fitness instructor will help you improve your physical capabilities. By analyzing the data gathered during your SMART assessment, they will identify the most effective ways to improve your golf game. They will guide you through exercises to improve your stability, mobility, strength, power, or any area that could benefit from training. You will even be taught new motor patterns for your golf swing if the instructor deems it beneficial.
PROTECTING YOUR GAME & MORE
Proprioception is one of the primary skills we focus on. This is your body’s spatial awareness and ability to judge both speed and range of movement. As that skill improves, it reduces the gap between where your body is and where it perceives itself to be, making it much easier to learn new movements during your golf lessons.
In addition to golf-specific exercises, we offer personal training for clients looking to lose weight, gain muscle mass, and improve their mobility. You do not have to be enrolled in golf lessons to benefit from these services. Improved fitness and athleticism will help you in many different facets of your life, including confidence and longevity. We work with athletes from a variety of sports, as well as ‘corporate athletes’ who just want to feel & move better.
YOUR TOTAL FITNESS SOLUTION
Golf is a more physical sport than most people realize. To excel, you must have a combination of balance, power, speed, and good form.

That’s where our team of experts comes in! With their guidance, clients all over Illinois have taken their golf games to the next level.
