Take it from someone who knows, Karen Palacios-Jansen is a Certified CHEK Golf Performance Specialist and LPGA teaching professional, and managing editor of Golf Fitness Magazine. Pilates and golf are a winning combination!

“But if any man is worried whether the reformer can give them a quality workout, I challenge them to go through a battery of exercises and see if they still feel that it’s for dancers or women only.
