"This might be the most complete book on golf fitness. Ralph has demonstrated once again why no one is more conscientious and innovative in getting (and keeping) golfers healthy. Very original."

"Pete Draovitch and Ralph Simpson were pioneers in bringing fitness to golf. They are once again ahead of the curve as it relates to playing better golf through a stronger, healthier, more functional body."

Tim Rosaforte
