This is a small class with a maximum of ten people, so space is limited! $125.00 per five weeks or pay $30 per single class. Tai Chi starting this Sat, the 29th @ 12. Sign up for 5 sessions and pay $125 or $30 per single class.

Silver Stars is now offering private training specifically for golf and tennis players. Our golf and tennis trainers are either certified to train athletes by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and /or certified tennis and golf teaching professionals. The programs are designed to meet the needs of the golfer and tennis player.

The golf program will address mobility of the thoracic spine or in layman’s terms the ability of you mid back to rotate. This is imperative for the golfer, as a lack of motion through the mid back can cause injury to the low back and shoulder muscles and in addition a loss of power, which means less distance. The low back is the most injured part of the body in golfers. If the golfer has a tight mid back and can’t rotate efficiently, then the lower back will compensate and move in place of the mid back. The problem with this is that the low back is not meant to move, it’s meant to be stable.

The golf program will also address flexibility through the hips, hamstrings, shoulders and low back and of course strength of the core, which includes the abdominals, obliques, hips and buttock. Shoulder strength and stability are also very important, along with forearm strength. Strength of the upper and lower body, balance and power will also be addressed.

The tennis program is similiar, but quite different than the golfers program. One of the main differences between the two sports is that tennis requires speed, agility and quickness, so various drills are incorporated into the session. Balance, flexibility, core/overall strength, power, and cardiovascular endurance is addressed. The tennis program was featured in the winter of 2014 at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York.
