WELCOME TO PAR 4 FITNESS
Function. Strengthen. Perform.
Function is all about allowing you to move better. In this stage of our programming, we focus on obtaining range of motion, where mobility is needed. Then, we focus on gaining control of your newly established ranges of motion. The goal is to foolproof your workouts in order to maintain your longevity, feel better, and perform better. Improving function is an ideal place to start for new exercisers, post-rehab patients, and professional golfers. This allows you to become more familiar with Par 4 Fitness’ soft tissue techniques, stretches, body weight and band exercises, how to warm-up and cool down properly, yoga, and much more.
Strengthen is geared towards creating a strong body for golf. We will continue to build upon the foundation created in the Function stage of training. Golf places unique demands on the body and we want to make sure you’re ready to handle those needs. You will learn progressions and regressions of exercises that are required to perform your best. This is also an ideal stage to gain lean mass or help to redistribute strength as needed. At Par 4 Fitness, we recognize that each golfer is an individual with specific needs. Our job is to make your body more resilient to injury as well as help you perform better on/off the golf course.
Perform has one goal in mind: Help you shoot the lowest score as possible! This stage is all about agility, speed, power, and distance. This is our pinnacle of training, which is only done after you build a solid foundation in Function and Strengthen. You cannot build speed on top of dysfunction. In this phase, we make sure you have eliminated threats of dysfunctional movement patterns and are ready to move forward in your training. In this stage, you will become familiar with SuperSpeed training, shuttle, safe plyometrics, and agility training. We can allow you to Perform at any age!
Darin is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the golf swing, fitness and rehab for anyone trying to improve their game. The K-vest 3D experience is unlike any other I've had in my 20+ years of playing competitive golf. A change with my set up and alignment has led to some of the best ball striking I can remember. I highly encourage everyone to go see him and his staff at par 4 fitness.

Darin is a wonderful instructor and coach. He focuses on golf-specific muscular strength, stability and balance, postural control and the development of power. Designed to help increase club head speed through a powerful turn and improved hip mobility to hit the ball straighter and farther. Another key area is core strength training for a balanced set up and a more consistent, stabilized swing.

I have worked with Darin for a few years and his knowledge of how to help you train for golf in the gym, his ability to dissect a muscular issue affecting your swing and ways to correct it, and lastly his knowledge of the golf swing and how to help you using K-Vest or Boditrak has made a huge difference in the improvement of my golf game. I would recommend him highly to anyone interested in improving their golf game.

Darin is an outstanding athletic trainer who bridges the gap between the golf swing and the movement of the body. He is always seeking to learn more and apply modern research/technology into simple language for the student to understand.

Darin and Tyler at Par 4 Fitness were instrumental in taking my game to the next level. Not only did they add a physical fitness regimen to my daily routine, but they also added a huge component of sports medicine to keep me healthy throughout the professional season. I couldn’t have achieved success without their help!

I’ve been working with Darin for the past year and his program has been extremely effective in advancing my golf game along with my strength. We work on specific exercises that reinforce what I am working on in my swing. We continue to gain clubhead speed, strength, and swing fixes. He’s very knowledgeable and has definitely helped me for the better. ~ Kim Egozi
Darin does a great job analyzing your swing issues and with his educational background and training can improve both your game and body. I personally have gained distance and improved my handicap during the two years we've worked together. Darin is a very personable individual and is great to work with. I plan to continue my workouts supervised by Darin for the foreseeable future.
~ John England
I have worked with Darin for about 3 years. He has been terrific help with my golf swing using the K-Vest. He certainly helped with my level of fitness. He uses quantitative measures which i like. Maybe best of all is his medical training which helped me with various aches and pains which occur as a course of aging and inevitable injuries.
