ProBar Mobility, the premier bar-based mobility system, has partnered with renowned performance educator, Trevor Anderson and Better Every Day to help educate trainers and professional athletes on the benefits of increased mobility and how better movement patterns can lead to enhanced performance and help prevent injury.
Recently named one of the Top 50 Golf and Fitness Trainers in America by Golf Digest, Anderson has been incorporating ProBar Mobility into his GOLFleticism program, a multi-sport method that teaches and trains golfers to develop speed, power, and coordination to safely enhance swing efficiency.
Developed out of the necessity to help prevent injuries due to poor movement patterns, ProBar Mobility corrects poor movement patterns and creates a wider, more precise range of motion for enhanced, injury-free performance. Whether it’s for improving athletic performance, undoing the tightness of sitting at a desk or simply moving better in everyday life, ProBar was designed to increase mobility, improve joint stability and strength, and ultimately help athletes perform better and reduce the risk of injury.
With over 20 years of experience in the sports performance and fitness industry, Anderson, has trained some of the world’s best athletes, including World Long Drive Champion, Tim Burke, PGA Player Emiliano Grillo, LPGA Player and former World #1 ranked Yani Tseng, NFL star Mohamed Sanu, and Olympic sprinter, Marvin Bracy. Anderson is also a Golf Performance Expert who holds multiple certifications including: Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Master Performance Trainer, TRX Master Instructor, USA Track & Field Level One Certified Track Coach and a SPRI Master Instructor. Known for his enthusiastic spirit and ability to motivate others, Anderson consults for other leading golf companies, including Under Armour, Troon Golf and the Leadbetter Golf Academy.
As more golfers and instructors turn to mobility, Anderson has preached biomechanics for years and has been incorporating the ProBar into regular training routines with athletes, using the bar for its three training modalities that include a long bar, short bar, and dual bars. The ProBar’s different modes allow for the user to engage in a variety of exercises that address a wide range of issues such as tight shoulders, lower back tightness, and ankle mobility. The patented twist-and-pull feature with spring-loaded resistance engages muscles to correct poor movement patterns and dysfunction that often lead to pain and injury. Additional weights are included in the system so that users may adjust resistance with subsequent progression.
“Trevor Anderson is a perfect partner for ProBar because he embodies the necessity for better movement patterns and mobility through his work everyday,” said Bo Dubbert, CEO of ProBar. “By partnering with Trevor, our team at ProBar is enthusiastic about developing further education, mobility and workout programming to help golfers feel good, swing better and truly maximize their full athletic potential.”
In a recent GolfWeek article, Anderson demonstrates three simple moves using ProBar that emphasize activation, power and athleticism on the golf course. Pertaining to golf swing activation, Anderson says, “The reason I love using the ProBar is that I’m able to get some of the core activation that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to get, because when I pull the bar apart and extend it, I have to maintain that extension. And this is only one element of how versatile this bar is due to its three modalities. I have already discovered a series of corrective exercises that will improve overall athletic movement and I look forward to sharing the ProBar with the athletes I train.”
Together, ProBar Mobility and Anderson will evolve with new education and programming specific to young athletes, fitness educators and professionals, so they can move better, train better and be injury free. Anderson will also be speaking about golf fitness and mobility at the PGA Merchandise Show to be held in Orlando, Florida from January 24th – 26th.
