Guest Speaker:  Brian Newman, PGA TPI ACE CPT CFL1 ​
 
Brian Newman, a PGA Professional, began his teaching career at an age capped community of 55 and older in North Fort Myers, FL, when he realized that to understand a golfer's swing better, he needed first to understand the golfer's body. Soon after that, Newman became a Certified Personal Trainer and Titleist Performance Institute Golf Fitness Instructor and started implementing golf-specific fitness into his formal golf lessons.

This technique of training the golfer's body and swing coordination at the same time started to prove its effectiveness under Newman's unique golf fitness and instructional background, and Golf Fitness X was born. The "X" meaning a cross or a blend of fitness and instruction.

In 2014, Newman returned to Southwest Florida, opening a Golf School under the Andy Scott School of Golf at Stoneybrook Golf Club. Newman began teaching over 1,000 hours a year while providing GFX training in group and private sessions at multiple facilities.

In 2015, after accepting the Director of Golf and Fitness position at the Elk River Club in Banner Elk, NC, Newman continued to teach and train golfers daily. GFX was taken to the masses with an online consumer platform and industry professional certification, and in 2019 Golf Fitness X merged with Orange Whip Golf, the number one training aid in golf.

The new company, named Orange Whip Golf Fitness X, revamped the Coaches Certification and training program by adding and developing new award-winning products such as the GFX Power Peel and the Orange Whip Lightspeed. Newman then joined the company full time in March of 2020 as the Director of Instruction and Fitness. He also moved back to Southwest Florida, relocating GFX HQ to The Club at Renaissance in Fort Myers, FL, where Newman is consulting as the Golf Fitness Director.
