G2 Lifestyles Golf Stretch Mat
By Kickntrue on 2/9/10
** GIVEAWAY OVER **

I don't stretch before I golf. Natalie Gulbis does. Natalie is hot and good at golf. I'm not. Does that make you want to stretch? I'm sure there are a couple other factors that go into this equation, but staying fit and being in prime physical condition to play certainly helps.

At the PGA Show I was introduced to G2 Lifestyles, a company that makes exercise and fitness equipment tailored to different sports, including golf. Basically, take an exercise mat or core (medicine) ball and print sport-specific exercises and instructions on them for easier use. It makes a lot of sense (if you're into exercising). When I see a medicine ball, my first instinct is to pick it up and throw it at a buddies midsection as hard as I can (it's really funny every time). Now I can pick it up- and know that it should be used to strengthen my abs.

Natalie Gulbis uses G2 Lifestyle products and calls the products the, "perfect warm up, for the perfect game." You should take her word for it, but since I know you guys are cynics we've obtained a golf mat to giveaway, so you can see for yourself. Any comment on this post is automatically entered to win.

I never used to stretch before playing, the ignorance of youth, but really started warming up before recent rounds. It definitely makes a big difference and the mat looks pretty cool. Too bad the images aren't of Natalie showing us the stretches.

I agree, Natalie should show us how to use the G2, I'm a visual learner.

Does it fit in the golf bag?
Does the USGA allow stretch mats on the first tee?

I have to stretch before golfing now that I'm passed my prime. - Wait a minute?! I don't remember ever hitting my prime, damn...

I'm pretty sure stretching before/after is not only good for your game, but good for your longevity...

Reminds me of the game TWISTER, a lot of fun played naked with a couple of your favorite girlfriends.

I saw an ad with her talking about it. It looks interesting, but how dorky would it be to pull out a mat on the first tee or even at the range before playing? I guess you could stretch before you go. Maybe there will be an instruction DVD with Gulbis showing how to use it. Hmmm.

Will it fit in my bag? :) Would be great for those 5 hour 9's because the course is so full.

I'll just put the heated seats on in my truck to warm my back up.

Now if Natalie came with it I'm sure there'd be some stretching going on. Of one sort or another

i've got a bad back from my military service and i can tell you if it wasn't for a continuous stretching program over the years, theres no way i could play golf let alone much of anything else. i had surgical consult 5yrs ago for a spinal fusion, passed on it, went with a good exercise and stretching program instead, it can be time consuming but it has kept me away from the cutter and i can sit on the floor straight legged and bend forward and put my head down on my knees, not bad for 52 years old
