Junior Golf Authority Savannah kids golf lessons

ASWING Junior Golf Academy Spring Semester Clinics
Beginning Sat. Feb. 2 2019.
The ASWING Junior Golf Academy begins its 12-week semester of clinics for girls and boys ages 5 years old to high school seniors. Certified curriculum & staff provide a FUN & process-driven plan to coach your child to play better golf no matter their ability, as well as cultivating the character development that golf provides.

These coaches are not trying to help create good golfers. They’re trying to create AMAZING golfers. They believe that should be the goal of every junior golf program in the country. However, the way they will go about creating those amazing golfers is vastly different from what is available in most junior golf programs. The focus is on the needs & learning styles of the juniors. Kids learn by playing and by encouragement, which they provide with our “golf playground” of stations and activities during every clinic. The kids love the excitement…some days even a parent can play too! The children who go through ASWING will build a love for golf and physical activity.

Be sure to take note of the kids’ faces as they go through the program. Watch the smiles. Watch the laughter. Watch the determination. Watch how their bodies move. Because of the varying physical nature of this program and its cross-training, the athletes who play other sports will also see increased skill levels in those sports.

To learn more about Savannah’s Junior Golf Authority, visit or call Coach Paul at 912-704-8902 while slots are available.

Kids’ Fitness Classes @ Hyperformance Athletics of Savannah

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Crossfit Kids Savannah

Sport as a metaphor for life. Kids learn so much through sport. Just to name a few…

Setting goals and expectations
Dealing with disapointment
Pushing through being uncomfortable

Exposing kids to multiple sports, both individual and team based, are an important part of growing up. Not to mention kids connect movement with fun and success. Make that connection when they are young and your children are much more likely to enjoy a healthy, active adulthood.

Hyperformance Athletics in Savannah offers the foundation of that success. Their program for elementary-aged kids exposes them to new physical challenges each session. Those challenges present opportunities to grow in character and in fitness.

New students are invited to join us for a free trial class any Wednesday at 4:30PM or any Saturday at 10:15AM (no class Saturday 10/26) at Hyperformance Athletics, 904 E 70th St. 912-335-3515.

(Savannah pediatricians) How two parents’ strength fuels a special Richmond Hill 5K

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

southcoast health pediatrics dr. webb

Need an example of strength and resilience?

You’ll find it in the parents featured on the SouthCoast Health Web site posted entitled SouthCoast Pediatrician and Wife Raise Awareness for Childhood Cancer.

The post spotlights SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. William Webb and wife Danielle, a clinical pediatric dietitian at Memorial Health, who are continuing to fight for childhood cancer research after the death of their son four years ago. Three-year-old William Webb II of Savannah faced a rare form of childhood cancer, stage IV neuroblastoma, with remarkable spirit.

“He would want us to get out there and improve the situation for others,” Dr. Webb says in the post.

William’s parents have created the nonprofit Warriors for William Foundation to raise money for childhood cancer research. The foundation’s logo is an outline of a boy in a superhero costume, a direct nod to their son.

The Warriors for William Foundation hosts fundraising events including the Warriors for William 5K. The sixth annual race returns Oct. 28 2018 at J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill.

Learn more about William’s and his parents’ perseverance as well as you can get involved in Warriors for William Foundation or

(Savannah physical therapists) Stacey McKenzie @ Optim Therapy on Pelvic Health & Wellness

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

Optim Health Therapy Savannah

The following is one of a series of weekly guest posts for by Stacey McKenzie, Physical Therapist
Optim Therapy in Savannah
Pelvic Health & Wellness Program

See more of these guest posts here.

Are you having pelvic pain?  Urinary incontinence? Overactive bladder?  All of the above? These symptoms could be related to your pelvic floor muscles, which are basically a bowl-shaped set of muscles that support your bladder, bowel, rectum and uterus.

The good news is that physical therapy could be the answer. Yes, that’s right.  There are physical therapists who specialize in treating the pelvic floor and I’m proud to be one.

At Optim Therapy’s Pelvic Health & Wellness Program, our goal is to provide a comfortable environment with excellent treatment programs individualized to make sure you receive the most from each of your visits.

At your first visit, I’ll meet with you for an evaluation in a private, closed-door environment. We’ll talk one-on-one and go over all your treatment options.

Although pelvic conditions are not life-threatening, they can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Our approach to patient care is to achieve the highest possible outcomes for you. Treatments may include:

• Manual and soft tissue techniques

• Education on proper contraction of pelvic floor muscles, posture, body mechanics, positioning, and more

• Strengthening and stretching exercises

• Techniques and modalities for pain relief

• Biofeedback


Optim Therapy recently launched their Pelvic Health & Wellness Program and Physical Therapist Stacey McKenzie can work with you one-on-one to make sure you are successfully activating your pelvic floor.  It can be accomplished in as little as one visit.

Stacey is one of Optim Therapy’s dedicated therapy professionals, all of whom utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to providing patients with the best treatments and outcomes. She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Armstrong Atlantic State University and says that the most rewarding aspect of being a therapist is making people feel and move better.

If you are interested in improving your pelvic health, please talk to your personal physician about a referral to physical therapy. If you have any questions, or need help with a referral, feel free to contact Stacey directly at 644-5333.

CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah guest post on improving sleep routines

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Crossfit savannah hyperformance

Below is a guest post from CrossFit Hyperformance in Savannah:

What’s your Sleep Routine?

This month at Hyperformance Kids we’re showing off our sleep routines! We’re talking about the benefits of a good night sleep and how having a routine can help. The better you sleep the better you feel.

Sleep is also imperative to maximize learning. Our brains processes both new physical tasks (like coordination) and information during sleep. Your body’s recovery processes and growth hormone release are heightened during deeper stages of sleep.

Here are some tips to try:

1.) Cut off overhead lights at dusk. As it gets darker outside, cut back on the brightness inside too. It signals their bodies to start winding down. My boys love lighting candles and dimming the lights.

2.) Cut off devices and screens at least 30 minutes before bedtime. In the summertime I like to take a walk outside in the natural changing light with my boys. They are also less tempted to go back to the screen.

3.) Reflect. Our family has “couch time”. Each person gets a minute to talk about the best part of their day. It forces us to stop what we are doing and just be together for a couple of precious minutes.

4.) Prep the next day. Not just laying out clothes and making lunch, but ask your kids what they are looking forward to the next day. They will start to connect the things they want to do with a desire to feel ready and well-rested for it.

Of course, lots of exercise and time outdoors during the day helps too! And nothing is wrong with a little power nap from time to time either.
