Roy was featured in Titan Magazine… Click here to view the article

Here is an excerpt from the article:
“Golf evokes visions of putting greens and driving ranges, but Roy Khoury 04 (B.S. kinesiology) is one of the few looking to transform the world of golf by incorporating fitness and exercise into golfers training regimens.

Khoury has evolved from a physical therapist aide to the president of RFK Training and a Titleist Performance Institute-certified golf trainer since graduating from Cal State Fullerton.

I always imagined working for myself, Khoury said. I realized that working in a typical gym with a bunch of equipment is not where I wanted to be.

Maintaining athletic posture and proper balance during your swing is imperative to hitting solid golf shots consistently.

It’s easy to say this, but not as easy to implement it.

Truth is, most people can’t be taught how to maintain posture and balance because they’re physically limited by poor flexibility and a weak core. If you can’t naturally turn your shoulders and release your hips, you either will lift or sway to create a sense of power during your swing. Those movements hinder a consistent swing and solid contact.

What I have done — and you can, too — is routinely practice simple exercises to improve my flexibility and core strength. I’ve enlisted the help of my golf fitness trainer, Roy Khoury of Newport Beach-based RFK Training, to explain five simple exercises that can improve body awareness and allow you to strengthen certain movement patterns.
