In the 4 months I have been using the Fit For Golf Programs my driver club head speed has increased by 8mph, from 83mph to 91mph.
The speed increase combined with technique improvements to enable a stronger ball flight has resulted in my average driving distance measured by my ShotScope GPS watch increasing from 221 to 241 yards.
My handicap has reduced from 21 to 14.
I had an injury to my sciatic nerve last year which left me using a walker. Working on flexibility and strength has been a life changer for me.
James L Castellano, 61, 13.9 index
I have completed the Off Season, Winter Strength, and In Season programs.
My cruising driver club head speed has gone from 103mph to 113mph.
My handicap is nearly 1 stroke lower.
I had been dealing with back pain on and off for 20 years and visited 3 different physical therapists. From using the programs in the app my back now feels great and I can swing as hard as I like. I recently hit 120mph club head speed & 178mph ball speed on the range.
I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life. Prior to FFG, I worked out consistently, but I had no proper guidance on my exercise program. Now I am the strongest I have ever been and rarely feel sore or have any minor aches. The gym regimen translates very effectively to golf.
On top of the well-designed workouts, Mike provides excellent advice on his blog and social media for everything else that is relevant for a FFG user to achieve strong results in fitness and golf. His information on nutrition and swing speed training have been particularly useful. I would recommend FFG to any golfer that wants to improve their fitness. I would even recommend it to non-golfers as a great way to get high-quality fitness programming.

Put in the work and get the results. I have been using the
Fit For Golf app for just over a year and the results are second to none.
There are easy to follow programs that vary based on time of season, fitness level, and goals. Don’t have gym access?The app has you covered with easy to follow resistance band workouts.
After a year of following the program religiously, and at age 63, my cruising and top speeds have increased more than 10mph, getting back to 110 mph.
My index moved from 5.2 to 2.8. I also use Decade and The Stack System, which have contributed to the gains. The way you organize the programs, which combine strength and mobility has greatly contributed to this success while holding off the aging process.
Thank you for putting together a great app/program, sharing your knowledge on twitter and through your podcasts.
I look forward to starting my second year on the app in just a few days.
Scott Schaefer, 63, 3 hcp
For the last 18 months I have been combining the GolfStrong Program on the Fit For Golf App and The Stack System.
Here are my results so far:
The app is very easy to use. Tracking workouts and setting them in advance with the calendar function is great help monitoring progress and staying consistent.
Mike is very relatable and always very responsive to questions and queries.
Zack Taylor, 62, 2.7 hcp
I took up golf after my knees and back started complaining about too much squash and football.
I have never worked out in my life and assumed I never would. I started exercising at home with limited equipment 1 year ago.
I have found huge benefits not only in terms of strength but also overall well being. I’m hitting the ball further but more importantly my knees and back are much better than when I began.
The app is well structured, with a lot of content to keep things interesting and it’s easy to measure your progress.
Angus, 54, 14 hcp
I am a former college golfer who lost a lot of distance and speed when work and family life became my priority.
I started using the Fit For Golf App just under a year ago.
I have used the Off Season, Winter Strength, and Super Speed Programs.
By combining the workouts on the app and Speed Sticks I have increased my average driver club head speed by approx 5 mph. I am now cruising at 105mph and have a new goal of 110mph.
I played the same tournament in May of 2021 and 2022 and I hit the ball 15 yards longer on average in 2022.
The app is very simple to use. Mike is great at programming and I am very thankful for his help and suggestions whenever I have a question.
Nick Cristea, 37, +2 hcp
I started using the Fit For Golf App six weeks ago.
My index has dropped from 6.7 to 3.5.
I’ve been playing golf for 50 years and this is the lowest my handicap has ever been. After not breaking par for about ten years, I have broken par three times in the last month
(71 three times), and also have rounds of even par, one over and two over in that span.
There are other factors, of course, but I am confident that FFG has contributed.
Overall, I definitely feel stronger. Most importantly, I think the program has improved my stamina so that I’m less likely to fall apart late in a round. I’ve lost a lot of good rounds on the last four or five holes, but lately that hasn’t been happening.
I am working out at home with the basic equipment Mike recommends. The app is well worth the small investment for anyone who wants to improve their mobility & strength for golf.
Steven Gullion, 65, 3.5 hcp
I have completed the 101 & Off Season Programs, and I am now starting the GolfStrong Program. I am doing the workouts from home, and the Fit For Golf App has made it easy.
Combining your workouts and The Stack System for speed training, I have increased my average driver swing speed from 94mph to 103mph! I have also lost 10lbs.
I turned 60 last year, and figured IF NOT NOW… WHEN? So I am using Fit for Golf to take my game and health to the highest level I can achieve. Thanks for a great product and all your help!
Brian Morin, 59, 5 hcp
I have always done strength training but never with a program designed for golfers. I started Fit For Golf about 4 months ago. I am a club longer with my irons and about 10-15 yards further with my driver. My ball now flies higher making it easier to hit greens.
It feels like I’m using less effort as I have gotten more flexible allowing an easier turn in the swing.
Gaining speed and flexibility at 53 is a wonderful thing! Can’t recommend Fit For Golf enough! PS – It seems to have fixed a lower back that would flare up a few times a year as well.
John Mitchell, 53, 2 hcp
I am 77 years of age and have been using the Fit For Golf App for 3 years. I have lost close to 70lbs, my strength levels have increased, and my handicap has reduced from 16 to 8.
The number of programs in the app have steadily increased over the past 3 years, it’s very cost-effective and Mike is constantly tweaking his app and his approach to fitness based on scientific facts, not myths.
The bottom line is at age 77 I feel great, I am longer with every club and my golf is still getting better. If you are really willing to put in the work, even for just 15 minutes per day, you will not regret it.
Paul Brumley, 77, 8 hcp
My name is Nancy and I am a 64 year old golfer with a handicap of 7.
I have been using Fit For Golf for many years and have done all the programs. I love the variety and the tracking ability so I can refer to what I have done in the past with the specific exercise. Really fun to see what weights I was using when I revisit a program and see how far I have come.
Mike is so encouraging and always responds to my questions with a thoughtful and prompt answer. He has encouraged me to lift more weight and become stronger. I have not lost any distance with aging and in fact hit my drives farther. I look forward to retiring and being able to focus even more time on fitness and golf!
Nancy, 64, 7 hcp
I completed the Fit For Golf 101 program then moved to the In Season Program as golf started back up here in France.
In 4 months I have lost 3 kgs / 7lbs and increased my club head speed by 6 mph.
I use Arccos to track my on course stats and my average driver distance has increased by 15 yards.
I have played just two tournaments and my handicap has already reduced.
The combination of mobility and strength exercises are really beneficial. My golf swing has improved and I am no longer tired or sore after a round.
Kim, 59 , 15 hcp
Over the course of 6 months I have completed the Golfstrong programs alongside the mobility routine. I have seen an increase in testing averages for club head speed, ball speed and carry distance. CHS has improved from 104mph-109mph.
I have been able to achieve a long held goal of reaching scratch with my handicap moving from 1 to +1. I feel more efficient with my swing, I am able to recover quicker from sessions/playing and have been able to train more regularly at higher intensities.
The App and service Mike provides has been first class. It’s easy to follow, gives lots of variety and helps you be accountable to track your progress. Overall Fit for Golf has helped take my game and enjoyment on the golf course to the next level!
Evan B, Age 34, HCP +1
I have completed Phase 1 & 2 of the Off Season Program. When I started with Fit For Golf I had a ton of shoulder pain from old sports injuries and years of being out of shape. Almost all of those aches and pains have gone away.
The app is absolutely awesome. It’s a super easy way for anyone to get organized and consistent on their workouts. The combination of the app and Mike’s dedication to responding to any question or inquiry makes Fit for Golf the best workout tool out there.
Any golfer, former athlete, or person who wants to get healthier in life and in golf should buy it today. Golf junkies love new gear, clubs, etc. Do yourself a favour and invest in Fit For Golf. It will make a bigger change than any of that stuff.
Adam R, Age 42, 10 hcp
The Fit For Golf App has been awesome for me. I’m 54 and carry a 4 handicap. I started with the 101 Program.
I thought I had maxed out on distance, but after 4 months I’ve increased my average driver club head speed from 102 to 106mph. This has added 10 yards to my average driver distance. I have also added about 5 yards to each of my irons.
Better yet, some nagging injuries I’ve had for years have gotten much better. Fit For Golf’s workouts are making a big difference in my other sports hobbies as well, as I feel great on the basketball court and on my road bike.
Bill W, Ago 54, 4 hcp
I am a high handicap golfer, a father to a near three year old, and have chronic hip and ankle issues.
The Fit For Golf App has been amazing.
I started with the 101 program, then moved to the Winter Strength Program. I also did speed training on my own.
In 5 months of training my average driver club head speed has gone from 95mph to 114mph.
I also have less aches and pains from my chronic issues. I highly recommend any of these programs for not just golfers, but anyone wanting to get fit.
Randy S, 32, Beginner
After following your free content for about a year and making some marginal improvements, I finally pulled the trigger on the Fit For Golf App and wish I had done it sooner. I just hit a year using it and have seen dramatic improvements. Swing speed is up from 103 to 116mph over that time. Most of which occurred since last fall after completing the Off-Season and Golf Strong Programs with your Speed Series and Golf Flex on the off days. Par 5’s that were previously only reachable a couple of times a year I am now hitting hybrids and irons into. Having a lot more fun playing as well!
Bryan Hoban, 36, 1 hcp
As a 4 handicap and someone who had always been extremely active in the weight room, I was immediately impressed with the extensive workout programs and dynamic warm-up options.
This is without doubt, a must for anyone looking to gain club head speed while sustaining ‘golf shape’ for decades. Undergoing multiple should and knee surgeries, I had always been plagued with fatigue and soreness but after only two months utilizing his programs, I have noticed a significant improvement. I highly recommend Mike’s expertise and his platform.
David Tyburski, 33, 4 hcp
I have had nothing but positive experiences working with Mike and the Fit For Golf App.
The app has by far the best and most practical golf workouts on the web.
My club head speed average has increased from 108 – 114mph in one year.
The exercises and workouts are great for all levels, and will help you improve swing speed, strength, flexibility, and injury prevention.
Justin Hopkins, 18
I have completed the 101 and Off Season Programs.
My long term lower back pain & hip tightness have completely cleared up. I 100% recommend everyone to try the Fit For Golf App.
The tutorial videos are great, and Mike does a really nice job of explaining everything.
Darren S, 44, 0 hcp
I played for the first time in months last week and felt like I was playing golf in somebody else’s body.
Since following the Off Season & Speed Programs on the Fit For Golf App I have gained at least 2 clubs on my irons, it’s insane.
People will pay $550 for a new driver for 5 yards, but your program provides 5x that for a fraction of the price.
In 45 workouts I have gained at least 25 yards with my driver.
Your programs are the biggest no brainer in the entire golf industry.
Jonathan Sowash, 33, 10 hcp
I have been using the Fit For Golf app since the beginning of the year. I have lost 35 pounds, lifting more than and driving the ball further, than I ever have in my life. Current goal is to lose 35 more pounds, and increase my hex bar deadlift by 40 pounds so I can lift twice my body weight. I recently turned 50 bit I know if I stick with this I can accomplish these goals. I no longer watch a PGA tour pro swing 114 and think I could never do that, now I think about what I have to do to get to that level.
I am really grateful for all the effort you’ve put into this. You have really helped me and I appreciate it.
Dave McLellan, 50, 7 hcp
I have been a Fit For Golf App subscriber for a year and a half and it has been a complete game changer for me. I am 65 years of age and have gained nearly 10mph of club head speed since training with the programs on the app. I have gone from low 90’s to over 100mph, and gained over 20 yards in distance with my driver.
Matthew Ida, 65, 5 hcp
I finished the Super Speed Program and saw big gains in club head speed. Before starting the program, my max effort speed with a driver was 99mph and my playing speed was 95mph. After the 12 weeks on your program, my max speed is 106mph and my playing speed in 102mph. A gain of 7mph playing speed has been huge!!
Excited to start the Golf Strong program this week and incorporate The Stack System to go with it. Would love to have that playing speed up to 105mph+ in a few weeks.
Jim Brosnan, 40, 5 hcp
I have completed the 101, Off Season, & Super Speed Programs on the Fit For Golf App.

As a result of the 12 week Fit For Golf – Super Speed Program I increased my average driver club head speed from 99mph to 107mph.
I’ve lost a few lbs of fat, I sleep better, and the back pain I had is gone.
The app works great, the explanations are extremely clear, and Mike always responds to questions.
I always struggle sticking with exercise routines, but it was easy to stay motivated with this because my golf & health was improving so much.
Enrique Castro, 38, 1 hcp
Fit For Golf is slowly changing my life.
I’ve lost 5% bodyfat, gained a lot of strength and mobility, and my posture is much better.
I have using Speed Sticks for years and had been plated for a long time. Using the Off Season Program I beat all my previous bests with each stick by 5mph.
I needed to get stronger and the Fit For Golf App provided exactly what I needed.
It’s just an awesome service.

Over the past 9 months I completed the 101, Off Season, and Super Speed programs.
Last week I was hitting balls into a net at 114mph and any niggling injuries from years of sport and non-existent.
Can’t recommend the programs and the app enough.

My driver swing speed is up 4mph and the sore lower back I had been experiencing after every round of golf this year is now a thing of the past.
Thank you for a great service.
David Bowen, 41, 12 hcp
My club head speed average has increased from 108mph to 114mph.
My ball speed average has increased from 156mph to 164mph (using range balls).
This has lead to a 12-15 yard increase in my average driving distance.
The Fit For Golf App is the best investment I have ever made for improving my golf game.
Michael Moynihan, 38
I just completed the 101 program on the Fit For Golf App.
In 12 weeks I have:
I also used the Fit For Golf Speed circuit on the days in between my 101 workouts.
I feel so strong and stable throughout my sing, I’m sleeping better, and just feel so much better overall.
Dallas Ophus, 44, 9 hcp
I have been using the Fit For Golf App for nearly one year.
My average driver club head speed has increased by 10mph. I am at least 20 years closer to the green off the tee, and also using 1-2 clubs less from each approach distance.
My swing mechanics have improved beyond recognition as I can now move better.
You have opened my mind to the possibilities.
Ronan Lyden, 63, 10 hcp
The Fit For Golf App keeps me far more disciplined then when trying to do my own thing.
I’ve been following the workouts for 2 months and my back hasn’t felt this good in 20 years.
I’ve seen a huge reduction in gold related aches and pains.
WIth a combination of your workouts and lessons from my golf coach my 7 iron club head speed has increased by 7mph and my carry distance is up 20 years, from 130 to 150 yards.
I considered giving golf up over the past few years but your workouts and the coaching from my pro have given me genuine enthusiasm about my game.
Neil Bevan, 55, 17 hcp (not for long)
The app has been great and has transformed me and my game! I’m 25 years kid but I no longer have any back pain from when I hurt my back a few months ago, I feel stronger (especially my core), I’m more flexible now then when I was 18/19 years old and I can play as many holes as I want on a given day. I’ve only done the 101 program and my average swing speed has gone up 8mph and I know there is more work to be done. I’m also down 9lbs since I started back in January.
Max Gill, 25, 14 hcp
The workouts have resulted in me not having to see my Chiro anymore, which is a great achievement asa I was struggling with a lower back issue for 10 years.
I have saved so much money on Chiro treatments since following the training programs on the Fit For Golf App.
My handicap has dropped from 12 to 6 and my club head speed has risen from 104mph to to 112mph.

Wally Valters, 56, 10 hcp
I started using the Fit For Golf App 14months ago.
My workout buddy and I started with “101”, then progressed to “off Season” and currently doing “Golf Strong”
I feel strong and flexible with more energy and explosiveness, Best of all my mental health is the best it’s been in a long time.
I have gained at least 50 yards of driver distance. I’m no longer sore after golf and at home, I have more endurance and strength with physical jobs and best of all I want to run and play with the kids.
It has been a game-changer for me and would recommend it to anyone, It’s easy to use and has great videos explaining each exercise and what equipment to invest in.
In 6 months using the Fit For Golf App I have lost 20 lbs and gained 7 mph of ball speed.
My average driving distance is up 10-15 yards.
The programs are simple to follow and Mike is always quick to respond to messages.
Most importantly, by following the program I have decreased medication dosage for anxiety by 65%.
Doug, 30, 4 hcp
I have been using the Fit For Golf App for 5 months and 1 am much stronger and injury free.
I’m hitting my driver about 10 yards further and my irons 5 yards further. This has helped me lower my handicap by 5 strokes.
I love that you have programs that are suitable for all fitness levels and can be done anywhere with minimal equipment.
I’m excited to get stronger, longer, and better!
Philip Kelly, 34, 19 hcp
Your SuperSpeed and GolfStrong programming is nothing short of spectacular.
I also really appreciate you taking the time to answer questions along the way – that’s not something you often see anymore.
At 43 years old I’m the strongest and most mobile l’ve been in my entire life, in large part due to your programming.
I’ve maintained a low single digit handicap for several years, but with the distance gains l’m seeing as a result of my strength and mobility improvements from your workouts, as well as adding some other strategy and analytics elements, scratch (or even plus!) feels completely attainable.
Jason R, 43, 4 hcp
