10 products to help stay on track with your golf fitness and wellness goals beyond January
Late January is always that point in the off-season that it seems to get harder and harder to keep up with the fitness goals we all set for the New Year. To combat fitness demotivation and stay on track for a strong and health return to the course come spring, we scoured the fitness section of the 2023 PGA Merchandise Show for the latest and greatest products.
Katalyst is shaking up the way you work out by using electro muscle stimulation (EMS) to strengthen major muscle groups that are critical to your golf swing. By mimicking the brain signals that cause your muscles to contract, you are able to achieve the same level of muscle activation that you’d reach after hours of traditional exercise in less time. It also reduces joint impact and risk of injury because the compact suit uses your body weight to train key golf muscles.
