I hope you are doing well. My name is David Schreyer and currently an instructor for Braelinn golf club in Georgia. I just purchased your hip trainer this evening on your website.
One of my students told me about the trainer and invited me over to try it out to see what I thought.
A little about me, I am a 17 year tour veteran. I player one year on the PGA Tour, 5 years on the Nationwide level, 9 years on the Hooter Tour and spent my winters on the South African PGA. I had 19 professional Victories and several mini-tour wins. I am second in wins with 10 wins on the Hooters Tour. I also won three money titles on the Hooters Tour. In 97 I had the lead in the middle of the second day of the US Open at Congressional.
All that being said I was always a pretty big hitter. The highest I have ever been clocked was 123 and I was maybe 29 then. I am 45 now and I don't play much anymore, as I am a very busy teacher. I haven't seen my swing speed faster than 115 in years.
So hence the reason I am writing you. I clocked myself today for about 10 swings and the fastest swing was 115, then I got on the Somax hip trainer and worked out on it forten minutes. I got off the machine and I felt really good.
I then hit balls and couldn't believe what I saw. My first swing was fast at 118 and I was excited. Then it happened, my next swings were 121,127,122,128 , and 124. I leveled off at 122 smooth and topped out at 128.
I have to tell you I have never come close to 128 and I'm 45 years old. Just ten minutes on your machine. I can't wait to see what is possible. It kind of makes we want to see if I can get competitive again.
Looking forward to its arrival. This trainer is the real deal! I am going to recommend your trainer to my students. This is exciting!
Thank you,David Schreyer

Great drills for the Power Hip Trainer.
All the info I have received is excellent. The movement of my feet, ankles, knees and hips that you teach in the DVD are really helping my game in tournament play,dropping my scores to under par in competition.
These moves I felt every once in while in a good swing but was never able to train the brain to know what the actual move was. The hip trainer finally trained my brain.
Very good practice drills and swing thoughts.
Thanks for your help.

This is just to let you know that I have finally got going on the hip trainer. I have about 12 hours in on it and I already notice a real difference. My hips are so much quicker! They get out of the way earlier which really helps my swing and keeps me in better balance.
When I combine the left knee first and faster hips, it is such an improvement. You might remember that I had been taught the bump move years ago and as a result swayed forward a lot on the downswing. It is amazing how quickly the hip trainer has overcome that flaw. It moti-
vates me to keep working on it all winter.
By the way, I happened to catch an episode of "golf my way" by Bobby Jones the other night on golf channel. There were many slow motion views of his swing. You were so right about his left knee leading the way in his swing - even while he was still finishing his backswing.
A picture is worth a 1000 words.

As you know, I am a pro golfer and have played in events on the Canadian Tour, AG Spanos California Tour and Golden State Tour.
I had some success in my tournaments, but not enough to where I could make a significant living off of it. I knew I had to make changes to my game to increase my distance and accuracy. I started working with your Power Hip Trainer in the Fall of 2006.
When we began, I had no idea how to utilize my hips in my golf swing and how much potential power I was wasting because I had weak hips.
Within two months of working on the Hip Trainer my hip strength increased exponentially and I gained an extra 20 yards off the tee on my average drive, and hit my irons one full club further.
Even though I am only 5'10" tall and 150 pounds, I can still hit my drives consistently between 290 - 300 yards and past the bigger and taller players in my group. By retraining my body I have become one of the top players in the Northern California PGA Section and look forward to more success out on tour.

As you know, I am an exempt player since 2003 on the LPGA Tour. I also won 1st place at the Ladies European Final Stage Qualifying School in 2004, so I also play the Euro tour.
Although I have not been able to compete in 2007 due to a skiing accident which required surgical intervention, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy and value yourPower Hip Trainer.
When you first tested my hip strength I wasshocked to find that my hips were very weak, even though I am a professional golfer competing on the LPGA Tour. I was alsodisappointed because I had spent 10 years strengthening my body with various fitness 'gurus', yet none of themspecifically trained my hip rotators. They were more concerned with the other muscles. As a result of over-training with weights, I developed a lot of scar tissue, which you had to release so that I could make a full swing.
Since I have started to work with the Power Hip Trainer I have gained about 10 yards with the driver and I am starting todraw the ball vs. putting a weak cut on the ball which used to create a lot of backspin. Now my ball has less backspin which makes the ball roll out a lot once it hits the fairway.
I love to train with the hip trainer because it improves my technical downswing faults that I was never able to get rid of with any coach during my 10 year career.
I know that once my knee heals and I learn how to really recruit all the hip muscle fibers, I will be able to use the hips much more efficiently and the faults in my club swings will correct themselves.
I can already see these improvements after training with it consistently for the last 5 months. I am starting to be more accurate with my irons and woods. The biggest difference I see is that my club has gained so much speed during the crucial point at impact.
I have been playing scratch golf for more than 30 years and was not happy to see my average drive drop from 250 to 230 over the past few years. The combination of Microfiber Reduction and the Power Hip Trainerhas enabled me to increase my average drive to 280, with some drives going as far as 300 yards. At 57 years of age, I am very pleased with the results.
My pro has been telling me for years to get my lower body into my swing, but I was never able to do it until I started working with your hip trainer. After the first week of practice, I could begin to see a difference on videotape. Now I'm starting to hit some of the best drives of my life.
I had a habit of sliding my hips during my downswing that was very difficult to break. After working against the resistance of the Power Hip Trainer, I have been able to eliminate the slide and just turn my hips. As a result, I'm more consistent with my drives and irons.

My problem has been my right leg. I never felt solid at the top of my backswing. Now that I've been working with my hip trainer for a while, I feel more solid. I'm keeping my right knee bent, and can feel that I'm really driving off my right leg. I feel like I'm making better contact with the ball. My handicap has dropped from 12 to 9.
I'm hitting the ball more consistently. A brutal left hook that popped up from time to time disappeared after the third week on the hip trainer. My wife now uses it for her tennis game, and our son has found it helpful for soccer.

The Power Hip Trainerhas been a big help to my students. The resistance and acceleration really help them work the muscles in their legs and hips. Talking about hip rotation, showing them tapes of expert golfers, and demonstrating the correct motion myself has not helped them to learn how to drive with the legs and rotate the hips like thePower Hip Trainer.
I purchased the Somax Power Hip Trainer in September 2008. My purpose for getting it was to loosen my hips as I had experienced pain and difficulty with hip rotation in my golf swing. I am a PGA Professional for over 30 years and I noticed the deterioration of my hip speed within the past 5 years.
Since using the Power Hip Trainer, I've lost 20 pounds, 4 inches on my waist, and I've gained at least 30 yards with my driver!
I have to say that everything you explained to me has been true. I'm truly happy with the results and I will continue with my routine and exercise. I will keep you informed as to future achievements. Thank you!!

I have to tell you that in all of my 55 years of athletic involvement , I have never encountered anything close to the impact that Somax has had on my performance.
Somax has changed my golf game. For 30 years, my swing was arms and hands, resulting in weak shots and chronic back problems. Now, my swing is generated from hip rotation, resulting in unbelievable power, and of equal import, absolutely no back injuries.
It is laughable to me that many of my friends spend a ton of money on equipment, expecting their game to improve.
Somax revolutionizes your game. This training tool gives you a solid repeating golf swing that you can use under any circumstance.
For the first time, as I stand over the ball, I have tremendous confidence, knowing that my right hip will not fail me and I will fire through the ball. Also for the first time, I actually finish on my left side and can hold that pose forever.
Amazingly, as I continue to train with Somax, my hip action just gets stronger. Once I am loaded up on my right side, I can’t wait to pull the trigger and fire my right hip right at the target.
Thanks Bob, your design was genius and your videos are a Godsend.
