Troon Abu Dhabi has partnered with Technogym to supply specialised golf fitness machines to Yas Links Abu Dhabi and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.
The Technogym Golf Performance Programme is the only scientifically based progressive golf training platform that provides continued exercise content to systematically improve performance while reducing common injuries associated with golf.
As part of this programme, Yas Links Abu Dhabi has now officially taken delivery of a Kinesis ONE machine, which is designed specifically for golfers and is a single, stand-alone station with hidden weight stacks.
The machine offers resistance across three planes of movement and is therefore ideal for golfers looking for rehabilitation and recovery within their personal training programme. The Kinesis ONE also provides users the opportunity to explore a broad range of natural movements, improving their functional skills, which is particularly useful for golfers. The resistance is user-defined, rather than fixed path, and due to the anti-gravity technology allows for force production to be in the direct pattern of motion without being affected by gravity.
Commenting on the newly installed equipment at Troon Abu Dhabi, a Technogym representative said: “Technogym has been working with the world’s best athletes for over a generation and we continue to innovate and develop new equipment for a range of different sports, including golf. As such, we are incredibly excited by this partnership with Troon Abu Dhabi and look forward to provide professionals with the right level of education.”
Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is also receiving equipment from Technogym’s Personal Line series, which includes Personal Run, Personal bike and Cross Personal fit machines, among others.
Danny Jakubowski, Group Director of Instruction at both clubs, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with Technogym to bring our members and visitors the very best leisure and fitness experiences across our clubs. For golfers this is a radical step forward in the fitness sphere and means we can now offer players the opportunity to not only hone their general fitness but to also improve their game, via a series of specific exercises. Whether that’s improved mobility, stability or power development, Technogym’s equipment means our golfers can use their workouts, before a round as a form of preparation and warm-up, or alternatively for recovery after a round.”
