ALINE Announces Alliance with Body Balance for Performance
Marblehead, MA - ALINE Systems, Inc. and Body Balance for Performance, The Golf Fitness Experts™ have formed an alliance to dramatically improve golfing performance through leading-edge biomechanics technology. Starting in May 2008, the ALINE custom insole system will be available at all 31 Body Balance for Performance centers nationwide. Both companies are dedicated to enhancing health and performance—Body Balance for Performance through state-of-the art conditioning and training programs, and ALINE through an innovative foot suspension system that allows natural foot alignment and a more balanced golf swing. “Body Balance’s mission is to improve athletic performance through the science of motion efficiency,” says Derek Carroll, president of ALINE, “And ALINE products allow the body to achieve optimal power and alignment. It makes perfect sense that we work together on behalf of golfers everywhere. The ALINE insole system benefits players of all abilities by optimizing their foot and lower leg alignment to stop pronation and other misalignments. The laser-assisted “ALINER” device quickly and easily measures foot size and ankle/knee position. In just minutes, the golfer can see exactly where his or her alignment should be. And good alignment means core stability and maximum power transfer. Body Balance for Performance is a 31-location enterprise dedicated to reviewing the golf swing from a unique angle—the golfer’s body. Based on the idea that a body limitation contributes to every swing flaw, Body Balance for Performance offers the most comprehensive set of training and assessment tools to help you play better, more consistent golf with fewer aches and pains. “Both companies believe that athletic performance begins with alignment. Everything starts at the ground level—power, health, and balance,” says Carroll, “Together, Body Balance and ALINE can take strokes off a golfer’s game and help them feel years better.” David Ostrow, CEO of Body Balance for Performance and the leading physical therapist for golfers at every level, is excited about the new relationship. “We have looked at several insert systems and the ALINE System is the most efficient way to improve function of the foot and ankle all the way up to the pelvis. The Aline system allows us to easily and effectively provide golfers with a solution that will improve the biomechanics of the body. It fits perfectly with our approach to improving athletic performance and daily function.” More information on ALINE Systems and Body Balance for Performance can be found at www.aline.com andwww.fitgolf.com.
