In this short 'Spotlight' session with Linda, Linda looks how how golfers go into their golf stance and what they should be aiming for with their golf swing so we can, in turn, look at which Pilates exercises would be most suitable for them in order to optimise performance and reduce injuries.
Linda is a Pilates instructor specialised in ‘Golf Pilates’, teaching clients how to condition and strengthen their body to improve their golf game and stay injury free. She has been a golfer all her life and has been teaching beginner’s golf for many years as a volunteer coach. Linda has over 14 years of experience of Pilates. Linda’s personal experience of the benefits of Pilates inspired her to train as a Pilates instructor with Body Control Pilates.
Linda set up her company, The Intelligent Core, in 2014, to teach Pilates to golfers. Before becoming a Pilates instructor, Linda worked 15 years as a manager for two global companies, Callaway Golf and the Financial Times in London. In 2015, Linda’s sister Jenny also joined the company.
Linda provides private lessons to PGA professionals as well as amateur golfers, runs classes at golf clubs working together with the club pros, and works with corporations as part of their workplace wellness programmes. She has also been involved in many projects in the golf industry including as a speaker for the LET (Ladies European Tour), the Staysure tour (European Senior tour), the annual PGAs of Europe summit and the prestigious PGA Merchandise show in Orlando Florida (over 40.000 PGA pros attending). Linda and The Intelligent Core have been featured in several golf publications.
Linda worked with the Body Control Pilates team to develop our 'Pilates for Golfers' teaching programme and hundreds of Pilates teachers have now gone through the programme. Linda is one of the specialist instructors on the Body Control Pilates team. Golfers and Pilates instructors are benefiting from her illuminating talks. She is know for being calm, composed, highly professional and extremely engaging.
