213: Building a Team isn’t Just for the Pros | Bradley Borne

Today I am especially excited to bring on our special guest, Bradley Borne.

Picture this: Members only, indoor club in the middle of Manhattan that specializes in golf performance. This place is too good to be true, right? Wrong! Today we are talking to Bradley Borne from Golf & Body NYC.

You might think indoor means a hitting bay here or there and a small fitness center, but you’d be wrong. This is a 25,000 sq. ft facility in downtown Manhattan that serves the best of the best (there is currently a waitlist to get in!) If you haven’t seen or heard of Golf & Body NYC, you’re going to have to go check out some pictures online because it is truly a sight to behold.

Bradley is the Director of Sports Medicine & Wellness and serves clients throughout Manhattan, the Hamptons, and the Aspen region. We brought Bradley in to not only talk about the inception of the great facility they have up there, but also some of the cutting edge projects they have coming out that is revolutionizing the lens through which we view golf fitness and training.
