Are you on the dredded handicap plateau?

Did that new driver lower your handicap?

Do you practice more and more with little change in your handicap?

Has your new training aid not lowered your handicap?

Then you are stuck on the golf plateau.

Did you know that a tour player has better balance than a low handicap amateur?

Not "swing balance" but human balance.

How is good is your balance?

You don't know how good or bad your balance is.

And you don't know that your balance is what is keeping you on the handicap plateau.

I went from a 10.0 in January to a 5.0 in four months.

“In 2016, I suffered from chronic lower back pain. I was told that not only did I have arthritis in one of my vertebrae, but also acquired scoliosis. Fearing my future, I sought help at Summit Strength and Conditioning that winter. The owner, John Jarman, had me using the SlackBow Balance system. My lower back pain was nearly gone by the next season. Little did I know what else the balance training had done for me…create undeniable more power in my swing. During the next season, I won seven Long Drive competitions while playing in the local PGA chapter tournaments. I had only won one in my five years prior! Additionally, the 2017 season was by far my most successful since turning professional.”

Your balance system is the boss. You cannot out-perform your balance skills.

Huge Agility Upscale

If you run and change direction faster than your balance can control then you will fall or stumble. Your balance system is designed to protect you. It will subconsciously throttle your speed to what the balance system can control.

Increased Power and
Control in Hitting

You cannot swing a bat, a golf club or a tennis racquet faster or harder than your balance system allows. Everyone knows if you "over-swing" you loose control and power. Increase your balance and almost like magic you will swing faster with more control.

Improved Power
and Control in Throwing

You can't throw any better than what your balance system allows. Many great pitchers lose just a little bit of their edge and become hitable because of an unfelt and unreconized loss of balance.
The same is true for shooting a basketball or rolling a bowling ball. If you need to take aim, better balance will make you better.



Improved balance brings better thinking, more fun and a longer life.

Everybody's Balance is Getting Worse

Falls are the #1 cause of ER visits for people over 45.
They are the #1 cause of accidental injury for people over 65.
These numbers have been steadily rising. We are getting worse, not better.

Modern Life Is Wrecking Your Balance

Use it or lose it. Perfectly flat floors, sidewalks and indoor spaces are zero balance challenge spaces. Your balance gets degraded to match the non-challenge of these spaces
Current shoe design destroys your balance skills. Raised toe box and heel cause a bad body position and posture.

Better Balance Improves Cognitive Performance and Fun

Do you want to hang out at your dull, drab, zero balance office?
You want to get out and play. Play golf, soccer, hockey, ski, run, paddle, surf, tennis, hike, climb. It is not the movement that makes you feel better. Challenging your balance is what makes it fun. If it was just movement then going to a gym would be fun. 



Can Fitness Methods Improve?

Reduce Injuries

In football and basketball this year there have been a large increase in catastrophic lower limb injuries. No one from the fitness industry has stepped up to say "Maybe we are doing something wrong."

Build Better Muscles Not Bigger

Strength and Conditioning is always focused on strength of the isolated large muscle groups. Why not more time spent on balance? The balance system is the basis for agility and coordination.


24-7 blue circle.png

The Balance System Is on 24/7

You don't use every muscle, every second when you play a sport or even when you just live from hour to hour.
But... like your heart rate beats non-stop, your balance system always is always working..
How come you don't work on training your balance more?
