Golf for fitness

Doctor's book, videos use body-friendly technique

Dr. J. Darcy Dill used to suffer from lower back pain that hindered his ability to both play and enjoy golf. He decided to do something about it.

“I’m a firm believer in people being able to help themselves.” Dill said.

From 2002 to 2005, Dill owned a chiropractic practice in Steamboat Springs

He is a certified personal trainer and snowboard instructor, as well as a chiropractor. He now resides in Fairfield, Iowa, but he was at Off the Beaten Path Bookstore on Friday to sign copies of his book.

During the past few years, Dill has created a unique golf fitness program. The program is explained in his book and DVD package, “Body Friendly Golf.”

Dill’s objective in developing the program was to help others with their golf-related injuries. As someone who had personally experienced pain while playing, Dill was determined to find a way that he could sharpen his game while getting rid of his back pain.

His book consists of chapters on endurance, nutrition, the mind and body connection, injuries, as well as golfing techniques. The heavily illustrated book and hour-and-a-half long DVD are designed to demonstrate Dill’s advice in an easy-to-understand manner.

Dill started his program with health care professionals in mind. He later started working with golf pros. Eventually, Dill expanded to cater to the average golfer and those who had been injured playing golf and needed rehabilitation.

The doctor routinely holds seminars and interactive lectures that offer classes on golf fitness and personal golf evaluations. Dill can be found at spas, resorts, and golf courses across the country.
