Hi, I am Todd Townes, one of your experts fitness professionals on Sharecare and I'd like to offer some fitness tips on improving your golf and tennis swing. I've trained winners on both the PGA tour and professional tennis circuit, and Identified fitness characteristics that are unique to fundamentally sound swings.

First and foremost, power comes from the ground up. You have to have a strong stable lower body to generate provide the necessary force to produce energy up the chain.

Flexibility in the hips and shoulders is paramount to align fore rotation and release. Training techniques I recommend would include foam roll and active-isolated stretching. Last but not least, sequencing or the ability to move, stabilize and transfer energy up the chain leads to efficiency.
