Best Fitness Equipment For Golfers

Building your own golf gym doesn’t have to be a fantasy. In many cases, the portability and affordability of quality fitness equipment has made it possible to do so without a lot of square footage in your home (or on your credit cards). Now more than ever, there's a desire to track down the very best stuff to make getting golf fit from home an easier goal to accomplish.

Our focus when selecting the best fitness equipment for golfers was on one of two things: (1) Is the product versatile, so a golfer can use it for a lot of different exercises? (2) If it’s only designed to do one thing, does it perform better for golfers than anything else like it?

To be more specific, we were looking at equipment that helps golfers player better, feel better and prevent injuries. Ideally, it enhanced mobility, stability, endurance or power—or all of the above. Golf fitness has come a long way since Gary Player was banging out thousands of push-ups and sit-ups to stay in playing shape. And the products on our Editors' Choice list of the best fitness equipment for golfers reflect the decades of research and improvements in technology that have turned many elite-level players into “golfer-athletes.” And you can now head in that direction, from the comfort of your own home.
