Nutrition Scorecard

I hear from people all the time wanting to better understand the impact nutrition can have on their golf game. This is a BIG problem, guys. When you don’t get your nutrition right…you’re going to be dragging on the course. Your recovery time is going to be too long and you start to form bad habits to compensate for soreness and fatigue. Here’s the deal – without giving your body what it needs when it needs it, you’re giving away strokes. Plain and simple. Based on your feedback and to keep you from throwing strokes down the drain, I called Jeff Pelizzaro of 18STRONG, one of my good buddies and a golf fitness expert, and asked him what we could do to get you on the right track. So, to keep you sharp during your next round, Jeff put together a quick video about what, when and how much you should be eating. He’s going to cover how you should be fueling your body:

  • Pre-round
  • During your round
  • Post-round


AND, he put together a nice little bonus cheat sheet you can keep in your golf bag so you’ll never be confused again. Like this video? Click below to get more details about the types of fuel your body needs before, during, and after a round of golf.

Pain Relief in 45 Seconds

Ssshhhhhh… you’re about to learn about the secret pain reliever that doctors use — but you’ve never heard about it until now. This inexpensive natural discovery has been shown to go to work on pain — whether it be back pain… headache pain… joint pain… arthritis pain… knee pain… pain from sports injuries… restless leg syndrome… or neck pain.

The secret behind this powerful pain remedy was discovered over 20 years ago — and its astonishing powers have been praised by The New York Times, showcased on 60 Minutes… and studied in over 1,200 scientific publications. But information about it was immediately suppressed because vested interests launched a campaign to discredit it.

That was over 20 years ago, and the hush-up was so effective that, to this day, it’s hard to find at any pharmacy or health food store. But now it’s finally back — in this pain breakthrough that virtually erases pain on contact.

In the time it takes you to open a bottle of pain pills and reach for a glass of water, the pain would already be fading away just by rubbing a drop or two of the “miracle compound” at the site of your pain. The moment the first drop hits your skin, it’s almost like watching a magic trick. It goes straight to the trouble area — within 45 seconds!

America’s Nutrition Physician, Dr. Allan Spreen, has uncovered the truth behind this incredible compound… and explains exactly how it works and how to get it. Be prepared to feel pain relief in just 45 seconds — guaranteed or your money back — by watching this short video presented by Dr. Spreen.

And make sure your speakers are turned on.

To your health,


P.S. Don’t delay. Once the secret behind this underground solution gets out, it probably won’t be long until we’ll be forced to take this presentation down. So be sure your speakers are turned on, and go here now.

Welcome to Fit To The Tee

I’m Chuck Forman, and working with people to help them achieve a healthy and balanced life is truly my passion!  Back when I was in my 20s and 30s, I was a single digit handicapper… I loved to play golf and couldn’t get enough of it!  But then I got older… my drives got shorter, my handicap got higher, and the game just felt harder to me… the result of years of ignoring my health, fitness and  overall wellness needs.   Sound familiar?

I’m in my 60’s now, and have never felt better (and never played better either!)  But everyday around me, I see the havoc that sub-optimal health can wreak on the lives of individuals, and in particular, their golf games. And having turned my own game around, now I’m passionate about making a difference in other golfer’s lives!

This is why I created Fit To The Tee…

I am committed to helping you realize your FULL potential both on and off the golf course. I’ve helped hundreds of individuals on their  personal journeys to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives, and I’m here to help you next…. I hope you enjoy my posts, and visit regularly!  Along our journey I’ll introduce you to a number of my friends in the health and wellness realm who can help you too!
