UPEC Fitness Certified Specialists

                           MARIO FRANKLIN

Level 1 Certification is designed for any golf, fitness or medical professional looking to expand their knowledge of how the body influences the golf swing. TPI has generated swing and physical data on well over 60,000 golfers of all skill levels, from the top players in the world, to weekend enthusiasts. Through years of research and with the help of the TPI Advisory Board, TPI developed what is now their core philosophy, The Body-Swing Connection.

The Level 1 online class and two-day live workshop teaches students the fundamental concepts of the Body-Swing Connection; how many of the most common swing characteristics and loss of swing efficiency are directly connected to how the body is functioning. Students learn TPI’s physical assessment screen, how the screen results are connected to swing characteristics, and drills and exercises to get your client back on track. At the live workshop, students take what they’ve learned online and apply it in real life cases to become proficient and confident.

I have developed a passion for human health & performance ever since I suffered injuries from an automobile accident in 2013. For the first time, the game I loved was taken away from me. It wasn't until then that I realized how fortunate I was to have the opportunity to play golf. The rehabilitation and training process intrigued me to learn more about the human body, and ever since, I have been expanding my knowledge in the golf fitness world. My career goal is to learn from the best, and in turn, help people of all ages and skill levels reach their maximum potential as human beings and players of the game.


I have been involved in teaching golf for 8 years and am fortunate to have worked with many junior golf programs including The First Tee of Phoenix and Greater Pasadena and have worked with beginner to collegiate players. My knowledge in teaching all aspects of the game gives me an advantage in being able to effectively communicate with players of all skill levels as well as teaching professionals. By using this information, I can develop a golf fitness program that's tailored to improving your individual golf game and overall health.


I have had the pleasure to meet and play with golfers ranging from beginner golfers to PGA Tour professionals in my 21 years of playing experience. As a former member of the ULV men’s golf team, I understand the hard work and dedication that’s required to play at a high level of competition. Training the mind and body both on the course and in the gym is something that I live for and I’m hoping to share my passion with you.


I am currently the Assistant Golf Coach and Strength & Conditioning Coach for the University of La Verne men's golf program.
