Golf Forever can be used as a stretching stick

I’ve had the opportunity over the last couple of months to experiment with the GolfForever training system. This is the new golf workout craze that is figure-headed by Scottie Scheffler and quickly becoming popular among both high level players and amateurs. I wanted to bring you a Golf Forever review to detail everything I like and talk about some of the things I feel could be better with the system.

Why Trust Me?

Michael VanDerLaan as the NCAA National Champion

Since I was 12 years old, I have been participating in golf specific training with the goal of being a professional golfer in mind. I have worked with certified TPI instructors for hundreds of hours, and worked to understand what makes a good workout for golf. 

I like the believe that my dedication to my fitness has shown through things like my speed and flexibility, stamina on the golf course, and my almost complete lack of injuries despite years of relentless work. 

I have tried different styles of working out. From high weight, low rep strength training to zero equipment calisthenics to the use of resistance bands and medicine balls, there is not a piece of equipment that I am not familiar with. That includes the Golf Forever swing trainer. So let’s stop talking about me, and talk about the star of this article - the Golf Forever training system.

What You Get - GolfForever Components

Golf Forever Swing Training System

When you purchase a Golf Forever training system, it comes with a few pieces of equipment. 

When you open the box, you’ll see a nylon carrying bag with a zipper all the way up one side. This is where all of the components of your GolfForever are kept and makes them extremely easy to carry. My only complaint is that the handle is positioned where the carrying case feels a little out of balance in my hand.

The first piece of equipment is the actual training bar itself. This is about a 4 foot long metal bar with rubber, textured handle pieces. On one end there is an anchor for the carabiners on the bands as well as an attachment point for the weighted warm up balls. The other end is bare of any features. On the shaft of the bar are labels for G1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. These will be used by the instructors in the GolfForever designed workouts to help you maximize your work.

Also in the carrying bag are two elastic bands labeled light and medium. These will be key components to most GolfForever workouts

Finally, there is a grey and a green foam ball that can be attached to the end of the training bar. These are different weights and can be used to transform the training bar into a stretching stick, weighted club, and a few other functions. They click into place very easily and add lots of functions to the whole system

The Golf Forever training system is not just a swing trainer like the Lag Shot, or the Straight Stick, it is a complete system that can be used to workout, to stretch and even to warm up before a round.

Golf Forever App Review

 Forever App Homepage

Let me give you the short answer first. The GolfForever app is INCREDIBLE. 

It is user friendly, contains an incredible amount of content, and even involves a scoring system that allows you to compete against yourself and a standard (kind of like golf) to constantly improve your golf fitness. 

My favorite aspect of the GolfForever app is the personalized workout that will be produced for you every day. Each workout will include a dynamic warm up followed by a full workout intended to work on your strength, mobility, and explosiveness. Your workouts will be based on answers to some questions presented to you when you first create an account based on your experience level and goals. They will progress as you complete them to accommodate your increasing fitness.

Aside from your personalized workouts, you will have full access to GolfForever’s entire library of guided workouts that include everything from at home, no equipment workouts to golf yoga to high intensity exercise specific to the GolfForever system. All of these workouts ensure that you never get bored and can always challenge yourself, regardless of your skill and fitness levels. 

You might be wondering, what’s the catch? 

Well, the membership that grants you access to the app is not cheap. You can either pay by the month at $24.99 or by the year at $200. If you ask me, it is worth every penny, especially once you know that $10 from your purchase goes towards supporting veterans and their families! If you move better and reduce your risk of injury through the use of the Golf Forever system, you’re likely to benefit immeasurably more than if you spend the same amount of money on a new driver, or even golf lessons!

A Golf Forever Workout Review

Using Golf Forever to warm up before a round

Let me tell you a short story. 

As someone who has spent years trying to get into better golf shape, I began my Golf Forever journey skeptically. I thought that I might feel a little bit of fatigue but it wouldn’t be worth the time longer term. 

I went into my first workout intending to use the Golf Forever system as a dynamic workout for my normal routine. I would do the guided workout and then transition into my lift. After 42 minutes of Golf Forever, I was completely exhausted and didn’t have the energy to continue on to my normal workout. 

I woke up the next morning with soreness in some muscles that I forgot I had, and now I use Golf Forever for both warming up at the golf course and supplementing my time in the gym almost every day!

The point of the story is simple. I know that the Golf Forever training system sounds like a money grab, but the reality is that it’s a new way to work out for golf. It is friendly for golfers of all fitness levels, and is being trusted by tour pros and weekend warriors alike. I am confident that, if you give it a real chance, you will become a better version of yourself both on the golf course and in your daily like by using the Golf Forever program.

Final Thoughts

Fitness is an important part of playing golf at any age, but it can be hard to get started on a golf fitness journey. Golf Forever is a revolution in the way golfers workout. It challenges both your strength and your stability through a variety of movements that translate into the golf swing. The app includes workouts using the equipment provided by GolfForever as well as some that don’t require any equipment at all, meaning it’s possible for you to get a workout anywhere, anytime.

I love to workout. I love to see how my work in the gym benefits my golf. Over the last 6 months of using Golf Forever training system, my body feels better than ever, my golf swing feels strong and stable, I have been able to increase my driver ball speed and distance, and I have been able to reduce some of the aches and pains that I used to think were normal.
