Better Body, Better Swing

Powered by Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), our elite golf fitness program focuses on the body/swing connection. The golf swing requires mobility, flexibility, stability, strength and power.


Traditional training programs neglect the muscles needed for an efficient golf swing. Utilizing the Titleist Performance Institute’s physical screening process, we isolate any physical limitations and correlate those findings to your swing, then prescribe a custom conditioning program.


The program can be done in your home or for an additional fee, with a trainer at Tampa Strength. Tampa Strength will help you develop a golf specific fitness program that enables you to take your game to the next level!

As a certified trainer from TPI and the Onnit Academy, my training philosophy has been influenced by these organizations. However, working in the fitness industry for over two decades has allowed me to acquire incredible knowledge about the human body. Hence, I have created a training philosophy where I incorporate unconventional training techniques and implements in order to facilitate physical fitness and help you produce the optimal golf swing.

The result is a training model that is designed to facilitate an athlete’s physical improvement in terms of strength, mobility and power.

Without Coach Balow I would have never reached my full potential as an athlete. His positivity and hard work ethic drove me to be the best, while never losing the fun associated with sport.

Under Coach Balow’s guidance I drastically improved my athleticism and strength. Before I started working out with him I could not even bench 100 pounds. After using his innovative training techniques, my bench press reached 315 pounds while at the same time improving my quickness and speed.
