Segment One: James Standhardt describes the benefits and results from Active Resistance Exercise (ARX) and how GolfTEC has integrated the ARX equipment into its Chicago area Golf Training facilities. ARX is an innovative fitness regimen that produces big, measurable results with a small time commitment. With increased strength, mobility and bigger range of motion, ARX can help reduce the risk of golf injury, help hit the golf ball farther and serve as an all-encompassing work-out routine.


Segment Two: Dr. Brian Cole describes the potential for nerve damage with ACL injuries: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, anatomy and  treatment.


Segment Three: Five time PGA Tour Winner, Mark Wilson discusses his experience with a meniscus tear and how he resolved it to get back in the game.

Mark’s charitable pursuits are focused on numerous charities affecting the lives of children. Mark, along with his wife, Amy, support the Blessings in a Backpack, which provides weekend meals to children enrolled in the program. Additionally, Mark supports The First Tee of Chicago and its aim of impacting the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that help promote character development and life-enhancing values through golf.
