Body Balance 

Pendex Body Balance Training at The World Players Academy
Pendex is the first and the only exercise system that strengthens your critical autochthonous deep muscles — your Supercore muscles — to develop a stronger core and overall improved health.

For top level performing golfers creating Speed is the easy part, its controlling that speed that is key, the Pendex machines focus on just this,  Eccentric movement-

 Basically eccentric movement is the exact opposite of concentric (pushing the weight). Whether you pause at the end of the concentric movement (to ensure you are in complete control of the weight), or not, the movement is concluded by bringing the weight down to its initial position in a controlled rhythmic manner. This is crucial to the Elite Level Golfer.

All other exercise systems, even the most elaborate ones with digital displays, tend to focus either on cardio-fitness or building larger muscles, but not on your Supercore muscles. Only Pendex can do that, by activating the deep muscles in your back, hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, stomach and chest to build the strength of your body’s core, creating a balance that your Golf Game will Love !.

No machine can do what the Pendex Supercore Exercise System can do.

Your body, Performance and your appearance will prove it.
