Golf Fitness Advice From An NFL Coach

Last night was Monday Night Football, and I actually watched it for a little bit.  Our Co-Founder Ryan has done fantasy football with his high school buddies for over 20 years, so I’m indirectly interested in it. 

The Cowboys beat up on the Eagles pretty good, 41-21.  There was a lot of scoring, so it was an entertaining game to watch (if you’re not a Philly fan). 

But what never ceases to amaze me is how many hours the coaches put into preparing.  I read an article years ago about how many NFL coaches sleep in their offices, regularly put in 115+hour weeks (there are only 168 hours in a week), and rarely spend time with their families during the season. 

Of course, they’re getting paid a handsome sum (the average NFL head coach makes $4,851,563/year) to put in the hours, and if they want to keep their jobs, that seems to be the recipe to do it.   

While I highly discourage anyone from getting so little sleep, there’s something to be learned here. 

And that is the importance of having a plan.  If these coaches show up to a game without a plan, their team has no shot to compete. 

If you and I show up to the gym or a workout without a plan, the chances of our long-term success are crazy low. 

It’s impossible to stick to a plan if you don’t have a plan – I may have to trademark that:) 

It would be like trying to drive from New York to Los Angeles without a map.  Sure, you could jump in the car and drive for 12 hours for the next 7 days, but you may be driving in circles.  Without a plan, you don’t know. 

Rather than guessing that what you’re doing is right…get yourself a plan.  A roadmap to play your best golf through your fitness. 

This isn’t throwing a bunch of stuff at the wall to see what sticks.  We know what works. 

As always, the choice is yours.  Choose wisely.

PS – Here’s our blueprint to get into “golf shape” so your body becomes an advantage. 

PPS – On our golf trip two weeks ago, there were 24 golfers.  Of those, I would say 3 were in good shape.  And these guys were either high-level high school or college athletes.   

Do you think I had an advantage over them?  Especially at the end of the day?
