Mobility May

joint_by_joint_approachIn celebration of ‘Mobility May’ it seemed only fitting that we talk about mobility.  Mobility and flexibility, or lack of,  is one of the most common reasons golfers come to our facility.  Most people think that mobility and flexibility are the same, when in fact they are two very different concepts.  Flexibility is the ability of a muscle, or muscle group, to lengthen passively through a range of motion.  Mobility is the ability of a joint to move actively through a range of motion.  Mobility also takes into account the component of motor control with the nervous system, or how you control that range of motion.  Mobility training is much more effective than traditional stretching because it addresses movement and how well you can control that movement.

IS YOUR mvga/ghin membership inactive?

To correspond with the ending of the off season and the beginning of the new golf season our MVGA/GHIN Membership 2020 season closed on Sunday, March 14 and the 2021 season began on Monday, March 15.

Just what does that mean?

If you play at a public facility or are a member of a non real estate club like "eClub" and have not already renewed for the upcoming season your account was placed into an "Inactive Status".

To change this status all you need to do is renew at the facility either online or in person.  

If you are a member at a Private Facility the staff manages this for you, therefore, no action is needed.
