Hello golfers all over the world, and welcome to episode 5 of The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast. In this two-part interview we introduce you to Allan Phillips, Human Performance Specialist, Top World Ranked Speedgolfer, Titleist Performance Institute certified golf fitness instructor, and the list goes on and on and on:

Allan has written extensively in the strength and conditioning field.  In 2013, he coauthored the Swimming Science Troubleshooting System. He is a weekly contributor for the Swimming Science website and is an Editor of the Swimming Science Research Review.   His work has also been featured by Sports Rehab Expert,, Functional Movement Systems, Swimmer Magazine, Swim Swam News, The Active Network, and Livestrong.  

In addition to his competitive background in triathlon and running, Allan is a top ranked professional Speedgolfer, and is one of the only Speedgolfers to post a faster round time than world #1 Rob Hogan. 

Allan and Pike Athletics are staunch advocates for disabled athletes and the Paralympic movement.  His Paralympicathletes have won multiple national championships and represented the United States in several international competitions, including the 2012 London Paralympic Games.

Allan is a beast, and I’m not just referring to his prolific athletic abilities. This guy is an encyclopedia of biomechanical, methodological, and tactical wisdom when it comes to human conditioning and athletic performance. Be sure to pay close attention. There’s some really good nuggets in here, and I think no matter where you are on the fitness spectrum this episode has something for you today. I hope you enjoy getting to know Allan Phillips and learning about where athletic training and performance currently stands, and where it’s headed in the future.
