Olsen will be offering two distinct Classes to aid the Golfer:
Introduction to 3-D MAPS MOVEMENT CLASS 101
(Three-Dimensional Movement and Analysis Performance Systems) Instructor: Jim Olsen, Olsen Golf Fitness LLC
In this session, I will give instruction on the basics of the three-dimensional movement of the human body.
The enormous benefit of the 3-D MAPS system is that it has the capacity to impact every joint, muscle and ligament in the body.
The class will instruct on six (6) movements that you will learn to apply to the specifics of your body and your life.
I will put them into all three (3) planes of motion and
adding the subtle variety of multiple foot placements and angles of rotation; this creates exponential options allowing these basic movements to be tailor-made for each individual’s specific body.
These specific exercises warm-up the body will encouraging flexibility, create strength and ultimately add endurance to the participant’s fitness level.
While these exercises will have a positive impact on any form of movement that a person engages in, they can be adapted to prepare the body for a specific sport.
Practiced daily, this routine will aid in injury prevention and keep an individual in the best “ready” position for the day’s activities.
This is a great routine for injury rehabilitation to reclaim range of motion and return an individual to an optimal fitness level. It is also a great way toend the day to get the most restful sleep for a toned body.
Deciding to include this exercise regime as a part of a daily routine, you can expect to feel better and stronger as you journey through life.
Class size is limited to six (6) individuals.
Cost is based on a group rate.
