The Ultimate Golfers Supplement
How do we stay healthy in our golf travels? It is a challenge when travel logistics can be stressful. The truth is, no matter how healthy you strive to be, you just never know what will happen and when as the Big Loser trainer/ host, Bob Harper can attest after having a heart attack in the gym. Just in case that sort of thing happens while traveling, understand your insurance coverage and carry your card with you. Since we travel to outlying areas on occasion, we have flight evacuation insurance. Let’s hope that you and we never need it.
Creative companies are targeting the golf industry to improve health conditions during play, Swing Oil for example. This is not alcohol, but a 3 oz. pouch of sports drink with a “Grip it and Rip it” top to open and sip. The custom formulation that Jason Day enjoys has seven key nutrients, including Turmeric, Ginseng, Glucosamine and Chondroitin, to enhance flexibility. It is available in three flavors (lemon lime, strawberry banana and orange) and can be served at room temperature, cold or even frozen. Could this be the real modern day version of the Tinman’s oilcan? It can’t hurt. Nor can electrolytes. We like the transportable single serving Kool Aid size packages of Power Pak. Just added to a bottle of water and shake for life saving hydration.
Exercise every day we all know is important. Simply move it! Move it on the plane, in the airport, walking on the course or pedaling a Golf Bike when available and speed up play at the same time.
Make smart menu choices. This should be self-explanatory, but all those fat, juicy, and sweet selections around every corner are instantly self-gratifying but only temporarily and then the heavy weight and guilt set in. Stop it. Stock up and eat those fruits and veggies and lean protein with grains. Yes, it is hard to resist the “in your face” culinary temptations, even or especially the hot dog at the turn, but nothing makes a greater impact on health than eating well and there are plenty of spices and tricks to make healthy, fresh food very satisfying. Travel healthy and golf well.
