I have been giving golf lessons for 16 years now, and personal fitness training for 9 years. My goal is to best inform my students/studs so that they can empower themselves, be it either on the golf course or in their attainment of sustainable health. We have a two way line of communication in which we can each voice our concerns, in this way we can find a way that speaks to you to get the most of your ability and potential. Life is a series of choices, decisions, and actions - let's start building habits that bring more happiness and joy to your game and life!
About myself: After an extensive national junior career I earned a golf scholarship to play for UCLA, my team winning the NCAA Championship in 1991 and myself finishing 2nd individually. I went on to play professional golf for 7 years, 4 years on the Futures Tour, one on the Asian Tour, and two on the LPGA Tour. While at UCLA I spent time in the weight room with trainers who worked with the football, baseball, and basketball players, it was illuminating. I also spent time in the rehab center where I learned about the importance of joint, tendon, and internal stabilizing muscle strength. I went on years later to earn my AFAA(Aerobic and Fitness Association of America) credential. After working at 24 Hour Fitness for a year and a half, I went into independent personal fitness training and now work people out at their homes or the park, bringing all necessary equipment. I take my time spent with my students seriously, striving to teach them the proper mechanics and technique, be it of the golf swing/stroke/game or resistance/stamina/endurance training. It's all about knowing and understanding the benefit of implementing certain things, and in time enjoying the results of ingraining the new habits. I hope to have the opportunity to help you with either your golf or fitness, or both, be well!
Seeing my students learn, implement, and improve, as they become more committed and disciplined.
Christy is a quiet giant. She comes prepared to give you the workout you need to meet your goals. She is not a drill instructor. She gets to know you and motivates you on an individual basis. Christy is the real deal. If you want someone to yell at you and make you feel bad, keep looking. If you are ready to improve with a positive person who WILL tell you to "get over it" at the appropriate time, Christy is your ticket.
Christy is an amazing instructor, incredibly patient, highly knowledgeable, and consistent in her instruction. My game is a work in progress and Christy has the most remarkable way to help me keep putting it all into perspective. Positive, encouraging and I learn so much each time. Thank you Christy!
I find out their background and history in the game, how long they've been playing or if just beginning. We talk about where they want to go with their game, and then over the first couple lessons as they are hitting golf balls, I start to pick up on their learning style. I figure out if they are technical learner's or more broad based learner's, whether they are visual, oratory, or feel oriented in their learning. Then I can adjust the lessons to suit them better.
I have extensive history in golf at all levels from juniors to the LPGA Tour. I started playing golf at age 8, local tournaments at age 9, and national junior events at 13. I was the Girl's Champion of the Year from 1986-1988 on the San Diego Junior Golf Association. I played on the national AJGA Tour from 1984 -1988, winning four events, being ranked number two out there for three years. I earned a scholarship to play for UCLA, my team winning the NCAA Championship in 1991 and muself finishing second individually. I won the collegiate Golf World Invitational also that year.
After graduating from UCLA I turned pro the summer of 1993. I played on several mini tours in the U.S. as well as on the Asian Tour one year. I qualified to play on the LPGA Tour in 1997, playing on it in 1998 and 1999.
