I’ve always heard great things about Urban Golf Performance, and from the moment I set foot inside the door, I knew I was in for a special treat.
I was quickly greeted by Leo Rooney, the Director of Performance, who welcomed me and gave me a guided tour of the entire facility.
It’s a very impressive space with an open-turfed area for workouts. On either side of this area, you can take a lesson in the private hitting bays outfitted with the latest Trackman technology.
After my tour, I couldn’t wait to get started and jumped right into a warm-up with Marcus, one of their top fitness trainers. We warmed up and subsequently put me through a variety of movements designed specifically to improving my overall golf game. These movements focus heavily on core strength, balance, and explosive power. You’ll also find a state-of-the-art physio room for rehab sessions as well as their new putting lab.
Next up was a full physio assessment with Dr. Manny. He examined me from head to toe in order to identify any weaknesses and imbalances and then geared his treatment to improve them and provide instant relief in the tight areas.
One of the great bonuses is that he also provided me with a video demonstrating the stretches so I can continue to do them at home. I walked out of his room feeling like a new person!
Overall, I had a great experience at UPG and can’t wait to go back! If you are serious about improving your golf game, regardless of your current level, this is the place for you! Thanks to everyone at UPG for a great day!
