Tips for Better Travel with Matt Ginella
Off Season Pre Trip Workout Routine
You don’t actually have to play golf to get ready in the off-season. In the winter develop a pre-trip workout routine in order to prepare yourself to play better golf and spend time in the ocean. Hawaii is the ultimate winter destination, especially for an active avid golfer. To build endurance and stamina, do some prep-time on a treadmill. To wake up the muscles you use in the ocean swim some laps, and to keep your swing in shape use a golf simulator.
Playing a Course for the First Time
When you’re playing a course for the first time be sure to check in with someone in the pro shop, they can help explain the local rules, hit some chips and putts, and consider moving up a set of tees on your first round at a new course.
In dealing with long flights it’s most important to plan ahead and keep stress at a minimum. Know your aircraft and maximize your comfort by getting a good seat like an exit row or aisle seat. Drink plenty of water, plan for how you’ll spend your time in the air and get to the airport early
Global Travel Tips with Dan Hicks
One of the first things you need to do is get a work out … If you’ve got jet lag and you’re crossing the pond you’ve got to get your body on that clock. So when your body feels a work out it feels like its awakened. The second thing and I think this is just as important –you’ve got to stay healthy… these are vitamin C packs and they are packed with a thousand milligrams of vitamin C. I take one in the morning and when I feel extra rundown by a lot of travel I might take two. This never leaves me and for gosh sakes get your body going - get a work out.
