Product Description

The Somax Power Hip Trainer is the first aerobic exercise machine designed to increase the strength and speed of hip rotation for golf. Because hip rotation is the only movement in the golf swing for which there is no natural resistance, 99-percent of golfers have very weak hip rotators. Consisting of a non-slip, 2 x 3 foot steel base to which you attach a special steel spring with a pin and safety clip, which in turn is connected via a connecting tube to a padded steel hip cinch that straps securely around your hips, the Power Hip Trainer is easy to assemble, use and put away. It can be used indoors or out. It can be adjusted for height and adapts to any swing posture. It comes with a DVD containing 26 drills for right and left-handed golfers. Because the hip joints are 3 inches from the center of the body, and the head of the driver is 75 inches from the center of the body, any increase in hip speed is multiplied 25 times at the club head. Most amateur golfers have a hip rotation speed of only one mile an hour. Pros have an average hip speed of 2.4 mph. Increasing your hip speed only 1 mph will add 25 mph to your club head or swing speed. This is why we can guarantee a 25 mph increase in swing speed in 30 days--or your money back. The Power Hip Trainer is designed for golfers 18-75 years of age. You can see more photos, as well as several testimonials and videos about the Power Hip Trainer by going to our website. Increasing the strength of your hip rotation muscles will not only add distance to all your clubs, but it will lower your scores as well. A research study by a well-respected university lab found that scratch golfers had the strongest hips of all the golfers they tested. We tested the hip strength of all 120 golfers who tried our Power Hip Trainer at the PGA Show in Orlando. Only two of the golfers we tested had strong hip rotators. They were both plus 2 players. One was 25. The other was 60.

I love my Power Hip Trainer! I bought it in the winter of 2010 and worked on it off- and- on until mid-February when an injury unrelated to golf sidelined me for about 6 weeks. I started playing again in early April without training on my Somax, and I was hitting the ball better than ever, but not very consistently. So, I retrained on my Somax and WOW! I was hitting the ball very accurately, very long, and very consistently! I have gained two clubs on every shot....where I used to hit a six-iron, I am hitting an eight....my pitching wedge now replaces my eight iron!!!! I still have work to do, but that work will definitely include working out on my Power Hip Trainer! I tell everyone about it! Two of my friends have bought them!

When I bought my Somax, I was a 55 year old, Senior Women's player with a 6.7 index. I play in a lot of amateur local, state, and regional tournaments all summer. My goal for 2011 was to win my flight in a state tournament and to qualify for the USGA Senior Women's Amateur and make it to the match play rounds.

One year later, my index is a 4.2. I won first flight in the Ga Senior Women's Championship, won overall champion in a regional tournament, and won my club championship. I also had quite a few runner up showings. Didn't make it to the USGA Senior's Women's but I'm still working on my Power Hip Trainer! Hope to make it this year!

Thanks for a great product!

I have owned this for almost 2 years now. My swing speed is definitely up. More importantly my slice is gone. I used to slice the ball horribly but since I swing much faster my slice is gone. My hips are definitely faster and they are much more flexible.
My chiropractor agrees with me. I would also recomend Somax Are You Flexible enough for Golf DVD. I go on the Hip Trainer and do the 4 exercises on the flexible dvd before I go golfing.The machine is well built and I would say it works for me and is worth the money.

I am a mid-handicap golfer with back & overall flexibility issues. As such, the typical problems arise from not starting the downswing with my lower body. I've searched long and hard for a quality trainer that works to stretch and strengthen my core and hip flexors. Everything I looked at was either too cheaply built or simply didn't work the area I needed. Then I found this product. I was concerned about the price but took a leap and as of this date have had the Somax Hip Trainer for about 4 months. It is excellent! The product arrived quickly and is incredibly solid and well-made. The dvd that came with it thoroughly explained how to properly use the system. From basic warm ups to more advanced hip rotation firing exercises...I can't give this product enough praise. Plus, the owner of the company is available to address any questions you may have regarding use of the trainer.

Purchased my trainer approx a year ago and found it to be well made. My only critisism is that the cinch works loose and requires constant tightening but as you are always switching between exercises this did not bother me too much. Not sure if it was all the hip trainer but a short time after purchase and doing the exercises shot my all time low score of 64 closely followed by a 67(par 70).
I would recommend this equipment as it certainly raises the heart rate and works up a sweat. Using this plus doing a flexibility programme you can't go wrong.

I have enjoyed the SOMAX PowerHip trainer for more than two years now. Not only have I significantly improved my "swing", but the continuous follow-up emails from SOMAX are worthwhile to examine current tour pros and their swings. As I started using the PowerHip trainer - was able to increase my driving distance from 220 to more than 275 yds, consistently. At $275, the PowerHip trainer is not only an excellent swing improvement device, but the continous updates from SOMAX are an excellent lifetime plus. If you're skeptical of golf improvement equipment, I recommend reading Bob Pritchard's "Efficient Golfer" as an excellent preview and examination of the golfer's swing prior to your investment in training equipment. Now go work on your short game!

I've been training on the Somax Hip Trainer since June of 2011. A month later I came in 3rd in the State Senior Open with rounds of 69 and 73. My ball striking was incredible and if I only could have made a few more putts...who knows.
What's amazing is that I'm no longer looking for arm positions or the slot at the top of my back swing. This machine has given me a "Hip Awareness" whereas the sequence from the ground up, like the Rocket Sequence that Bob talks about, is key to speed, accuracy, and distance. When I start the swing with my forward knee, it simplifies down swing the swing and creates the proper lag needed for solid strikes.
As a High School Football Coach, 99% of my players have weak, stiff hips. By increasing their hip strength and speed, my players are getting in and out of their stances with ease, are quicker off the ball, have a stronger push off the line, and the backs seem to stop and turn on point. Not to mention the QB is using the same sequence in the golf swing to throw the football.
Frankly, the Power Hip Trainer is the best imvestment I've ever made when it comes to golf and fitness machines.
