Dan Hellman (Twitter - @DanHellman1, FB – H3 by Dan Hellman, IG – h3bydanhellman) is the owner of H3 by Dan Hellman; a.k.a. Hellman Holistic Health, and one of the best physical therapists/health and fitness professionals on the planet. He has helped some of the best golfers in the world recover from injury, get back to playing at a world class level and make sure they don’t injure themselves again. His ‘toolbox’ of disciplines is out of this world and in 2017 he was recognized by ‘Golf Fitness’ Magazine as one of the ’50 Best Golf Fitness Professionals in America’.
Before establishing H3, he practiced physical therapy in several outpatient orthopedic centers specializing in sports medicine and spine rehabilitation. Dan is a past senior faculty member of the prestigious C.H.E.K Institute, which educates fitness and healthcare professionals in a uniquely integrated and holistic approach to health, fitness and well-being. He has traveled North America and the world teaching personal trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors and osteopaths the C.H.E.K philosophy.
Trained in both traditional and manual physical therapy, Dan has also studied extensively under pioneering French osteopath Guy VOYER and is qualified to teach VOYER’s Soma method. Soma stresses that training — whether for performance, rehabilitation or maintenance—must begin with an understanding of how the entire body moves and does its work.
Last but certainly not least, Dan is an instructor with the well-known TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) and created an on-line program where he walks you through exercises and workouts that will create maximum performance both on and off the course.
Dan is an avid golfer, and he combined his love of the sport with his in-depth understanding of the human body’s limits and potential to create Golf Body Pro. This program helps golfers at all levels play better by conditioning the body for the demands of the golf swing or adapting to physical limitations that may affect the swing. He has worked with golfers from youth level to the top players on the PGA Tour.
