How Does A Professional Golfer Train?

Professional Golfer, Chirapat Jao-Javanil

My name is Chirapat Jao-Javanil, I go by JA, and I am 27 years old. I play professional women’s golf and am training for the WAPT and Symetra Tournaments.

Athletic Accomplishments

In my amateur career, on 25 May 2012, I became the first women's golfer at the University of Oklahoma history to win the NCAA Golf Championship as an individual. I was also a two-time first-team Golfweek/NGCA All-American Honoree and a four-time All-Big 12 Conference Honoree.

In my professional career, I advanced to the Final Stage of the LPGA Q School in 2014. I won the first Pro title at the 2014 Golf Capital of Tennessee Women's Open. I also won 3 Cactus tour title in 2016 and the Texas women’s Open 2017.

Training

I work out with Pilates reformer, cardio some explosive work out and golf practice. 1 to 2 times a day. I use the Pilates reformer for my core and glutes. I also do weight training, cardio and Lagree Fitness, Body by Nat.

I start my training with some stretches and dynamic stretches while getting my mind positive and ready for the work out to come. I usually choose to start the morning with a Barre class, such as Lagree or pilates reformer. This is about a 45-50 mins class. Then, in the late afternoon after my golf practice, I will go to the track at Memorial Park in Houston to do some bodyweight and cardio. After cardio, I would cool down and stretch. People tend to have a habit of not stretching or taking care of their bodies after a workout.

aminoVITAL For Your Training

My products of choice are Rapid Recovery and Action. I always grab my Blueberry recovery packet to put into my drink to maintain my energy level after any workout and activity. During the workout, I like to mix in the Action grape flavor during the workout. I find that I don’t get the highs and lows like I would with Gatorade or other sports drinks.

Nutrition

I just make sure that I don’t over-consume any specific type of food group. I do make sure that with regards to a carbohydrate that I eat complex carbs and in a portion that is proportional to my body. The scary thing is fluctuating drastically due to bad eating behavior. So I always make sure what I am eating is nutritious and that I don't starve myself. I eat small meals throughout the day so I don’t overeat during any specific meal of the day.

I tend to eat the same throughout the year. I always have a high protein and fiber in my meals. I don’t believe in starving yourself or drastically changing your eating behavior. I will consume more protein i.e. chicken, steak, fish, quinoa during training season but I usually eat the same throughout the year. I believe strongly that Healthy is a lifestyle and not a diet or something you do seasonally.
