Most golfers agree that it’s a good idea to stretch before playing golf, or warming up on the range, but few probably do it. And many of those who do stretch probably aren’t doing it properly.
Well, here’s a little incentive: Natalie Gulbis says you should, and the LPGA’s pin-up girl has endorsed the Golf Stretch Fitness Mat from G2 Fitness.
It’s the only stretch mat specifically designed for golfers. Available for both men and women, the mats depict every important golf stretch directly on its canvas so that you never forget another stretch while warming up. Physician-certified, portable and even eco-friendly, the G2 Fitness Golf Stretch Mats are available in several colors. They can be used at home, the gym, the driving range or even in-between holes, if you’re that dedicated.
“I believe in the G2 Fitness stretch mats because they promote a healthy lifestyle,” said Gulbis, winner of the 2007 Evian Masters. “Stretching is a key element in my golf game – it’s important for me to keep everything flexible and strong to play my best and prolong my career.”
You’re probably wondering how these mats are eco-friendly. Well, they are made from Thermoplastic Elastomer, and they are100 percent recyclable. According to the company, they offer superior grip in both wet and dry conditions, and they even maintain a moderate temperature to avoid chilly morning workouts.
Also, according to G2 Fitness, which also makes mats for Pilates and yoga, TPE is a durable alternative to rubber or PVC. It is completely non-toxic, odorless and harmless to both the environment and human body, unless you pull something, of course.
Cost for the mat is $50, and it comes with video instruction on the Web site, http://www.g2fit.com/.
No word if Gulbis is on the video. I guess you’ll have to purchase the product to find out.
