Champion Advanced Golf Performance
A Comprehensive 12-Week Program To Enhance Golf Specific Performance
READY TO TAKE YOUR GOLF PERFORMANCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL?
At Champion, we've worked with hundreds of golfers of all skill levels from youth, high school, club-level amateurs, and professional golfers on Tour. We know what it takes to maximize your golf performance.
Our programs are designed to enhance all aspects of athletic performance, including flexibility, mobility, strength, power, balance, and coordination. We build well rounded, athletic golfers. However, when it comes to golf, you can't just perform a generic program, you must understand the unique demands of the sport.
Most strength and conditioning programs are built around making you simply sweat or not training at all, but golfers have different needs. There are many common exercises we DON'T perform with golfers, as well as additional exercises just for golfers.
This 12-week program was specifically designed to help you workout more efficiently, develop more power, strength and become a well rounded golfer. Over the next 3 months your program will progress in difficulty to ensure that you’re consistently challenged and working towards your desired goals and optimize your on-course performance and reduce your risk of injury.
The program has been designed by Champion Coach Nick Esposito and Physical Therapist Mike Scaduto, who together have an extensive background working with elite golfers. You'll follow a program based on years of experience that has helped golfers of all skill levels maximize their golf performance.
We don’t just say “train like the pros.” We actually train the pros. We work with athletes of all ages included youth, high school, college, and professional athletes. The Champion Golf Performance Program is based on the same programs that Mike and Nick have used to help golfers of all skill levels become more athletic golfers

Injury Risk Reduction AND Performance Enhancement
The Champion Online Golf Performance Program was developed as a collaboration between Mike Scaduto, a physical therapist, and Nick Esposito, a strength and conditioning coach. Through their shared knowledge and experience, they have a deep understanding of what it takes to prevent injuries in golf while simultaneously maximizing performance.
Here’s some of the most common injuries we see in golfers:
- Low Back Pain
- Shoulder Issues (rotator cuff, labrum, tendonitis) from instability and/or overuse
- Elbow and wrist injuries
- Stress Fractures (lower back)- more common in youth golfers
Why do golfers get injured?
Injuries happen in all sports, it's just the reality of being an athlete. Golf is an asymmetrical repetitive rotational sport that places a tremendous amount of stress on the body. The stress the golf swing generates can cause acute injury to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. Golf can also cause more long-lasting injuries caused by repetitive microtrauma from each swing.
Injuries in golf typically occur for a few of the follow reasons:
- Previous injury or surgical history
- Increased play or practice volume
- Swing Characteristics
- Physical restrictions, such as mobility or flexibility limitations
- Decreased coordination or stability
- General lack of strength
The Champion Golf Performance Program was designed to mitigate the risk of injury while also improving golf performance.
Factors influencing performance:
There are many factors that influence your performance on the golf course. Golf is a simple game with massive complexity, and performance can often fluctuate frequently. From a physical standpoint, there are a few key factors that influence golf performance:
- Mobility and flexibility
- Reaction and coordination
When these factors are combined the right amounts, golfers are able to optimize their performance and improve their consistency.
The Champion Golf Performance Program addresses each of these charactertics, helping you feel preapred each time you step on the tee and maximize your performance for years to come.
This program is complete with:
- Self Myofascial Release through foam rolling and other tools
- Mobility Drills to keep you moving optimally

- Bob S, Amateur Golfer 12 HCP
“I went to Champion as an overweight, 65 year old golfer with two bad knees. He did a great job helping me strengthen the knees with physical therapy and fitness. And then both rotator cuffs became aggravated and carpal tunnel in both hands hit last summer. Over the winter, he helped me with those and much to my surprise, I’ll be playing golf this summer. I’ve been to a number of physical therapists—-Mike is the only one I’ll use now, he’s simply superb.”
