"Vancouver, Canada anno 2008. A young girl with big dreams and ambitions enters the country, on her own, for the first time in her life. She soon got addicted to the West Coast lifestyle and lost her heart forever in the mountains of Whistler. A wise man (with no beard and he didn't meditate in a cave) came along her path, he became her mentor and taught her everything about golf movement and inspired her big time. She made a decision. She also wants to become a coach just like him. Dreaming of also empowering others to greatness. So she started to work for it really really hard, enjoyed many beautiful adventures but also faced many difficult challenges. But hey, a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."
And that's why I'm beyond excited and honoured to be chatting with World of Golf all the way from VANCOUVER on their podcast
We talk about:
- my time in Canada at the University of British Columbia
- what got me so inspired by my mentor
- what TPI is
- what TPI has meant for me, personally and professionally
- the huge shock I experienced coming to Holland
- my point of view about golf fitness vs golf movement
- and coaching details I haven't talked about anywhere else
I really enjoyed this conversation so much and I hope you will do too. Make sure to check out World of Golf here. They are a leading role in the development for women in golf and much more.
Golf fitness has exploded in popularity over the past few years with athletes such as Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Brookes Koepka and Dustin Johnson all helping to popularize golf specific fitness training.
Golf specific fitness training is not just for the pro's either. It can help the recreational player improve their physical condition so that you can swing the club more easily and without pain or with less pain and downtime from injuries.
In this episode we are joined by Liesbeth Pauwels, one of the leading voices in the golf world for Golf & Body movement -- helping to produce not only better golfers but healthier and more physically fit people. She discusses how this modern, holistic approach to better movement helps reduce injuries while helping you swing the club better.
She is one of Europe's leading Golf & Body Movement experts -- listen in and you can learn more about how this works for golfers of all skill levels whether you are a professional player, competitive amateur to the recreational player or someone that is new to golf and wanting to enjoy the game even more. She also shares with us some details about her annual golf retreat held every winter in sunny southern Spain and how you can be a part of this fun event.
Liesbeth earned a degree in Kinesiology from UBC, is TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Certified, and the director of LP Golf Performance (www.lpgolfperformance.nl ).
