> Best Fitness Instructor (Reader’s Choice), Dillon Johnson, RallySport Boulder

In his popular Golf Conditioning Program, Dillon Johnson challenges his clients’ minds as much as their bodies, believing the connection between the two will make them more prepared and confident on the golf course and in everyday life. “Golf is one of the most physically intense sports out there,” says the Level 3 Titleist Performance Institute Certified Fitness Professional. “Golfers must be balanced, flexible, powerful, strong, stable, consistent—for five hours. We can do so much for our game and life by simply preparing our body and mind for the demands we place on them.”  rallysportboulder.com
