Then Optimal Physical Therapy & Performance Institute is right for you

ANGELO SCARPATI, Physical Therapist and Medical Fitness Instructor through the Titleist Performance Institute, shows you how he has guided Golfers in Overcoming Physical Limitations to Play Their Personal Best Golf.
It all starts with the Golf Fitness Evaluation & Selective Functional Movement Assessment to identify faulty movement patterns affecting:

• Posture • Flexibility • Mobility • Balance  • Stability  • Strength • Power

The body works in alternating patterns of stability and mobility. You have stable joints connected by mobile joints, and if this pattern is altered, dysfunction and compensation will occur.
Addressing your faulty movement patterns will improve performance, reduce faulty swing characteristics and injuries.
Getting to the heart of the problem:
    The Fitness Golf Evaluation & Selective Functional Movement Screen, the same screen used by Titleist Tour Players leads to the development of a custom designed program, geared specifically to the golfer's physical limitations.
    2-D Video Swing Analysis using the Pro V1 Software, will focus on the mobility / stability model of the body, and to help identify some of the most faulty swing characteristics:
S-Posture, C-Posture, Loss of Posture, Flat Shoulder Plane, Early Extension, Over The Top, Sway, Slide, Reverse Spine Angle, Hanging Back, Casting/Early Release, Chicken Winging
    Our unique training system combines reactive neuromuscular and motor control training. It blends movement patterns, performance and sports skill exercises using various modalities.

     Today, the average handicap has not changed much, even with the latest technological advancements in equipment.

The one variable or limiting factor often overlooked, is the golfer's physical body. All the tools of the game & lessons won't help you reach optimum performance until your body is prepared to respond to the movement.
Thank you for your time in helping design a golf performance program for our women's golf team.

Carbohydrate consumption can alter energy dynamics and disease progression in the body.
All carbohydrates we consume are digested into monosaccharides or simple sugars before they’re absorbed by the body, regardless of whether the food source is a simple sugar cube or a high-fibre, low glycemic index bowl of oatmeal. It’s just that the “healthier carbs” are digested and absorbed much slower while the “non-healthy” carbs are digested very quickly.
* A slower carbohydrate breakdown from lower glycemic carbohydrates is better for satiety, blood sugar, and body composition. These carbohydrates are found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
* Rapid digestion of simpler, higher-glycemic carbohydrates is beneficial during the pre- and post-workout periods.
The average person’s minimum carbohydrate intake should be 130 grams per day, with a majority coming from vegetables and fruits. Higher amounts of carbohydrates are needed with increased muscle mass and increased physical activity levels. However, excessive carbohydrate consumption will be stored for future use (as fat or glycogen).
Consume at least 25 grams of fibre per day from vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains to ensure optimal health and body composition.
