Meet Chris Hickman
He’s currently playing on PGA Tour China, and he takes his TB12 Resistance Bands and TB12 mindset everywhere he goes. Chris works tirelessly in pursuit of his goal of being one of the best golfers in the world, and understands that taking care of his body and mind will be crucial if he wants to see this kind of long-term success.
That’s where TB12 came in
“TB12 has transformed the way I approach tournaments and workouts. Seeing how Tom Brady takes care of himself has inspired me, and I plan on playing professional golf at the highest level well into my 50’s." Two years ago I decided to stop lifting heavy weights in the gym and to start using resistance bands and my pliability sphere and roller on a daily basis. I had tried a chiropractor and physical therapy, and I did things like heating and icing my back all the time, but nothing worked. I was constantly missing tournaments due to back and shoulder injuries from golf and overuse in the gym – I felt like this was a problem I was going to deal with my whole life. With TB12, I’ve traveled all around Canada on PGA Tour Canada, all around South America on PGA Tour Latinoamérica, and all around China and southeast Asia on PGA Tour China/ADT Tour, and despite all of that hard travel and professional play, I haven’t missed a single event!"
Utilizing the right gear
"I haven’t gone to a single tournament over the last two years without my TB12 band kit, door strap, pliability sphere, and pliability roller. I can turn a small hotel room in Thailand into a full-service gym, and the roller is key before and after long international flights. I really can’t do without these products.
With TB12, I’ve learned to turn setbacks into opportunities to learn from them and grow as a person. It’s about controlling the only thing you can in difficult situations: your attitude. I realized that I can choose to never be a victim, no matter the circumstances; that I can choose to think in a way that empowers me to respond well to whatever obstacle golf throws at me. That kind of mindset is crucial to a professional golfer, because you lose far more than you win and have to be able to rebound in a positive way by staying enthused for the game and focused on the next week of play.”
