Editorial Reviews

Art Sellinger
Golf Fitness qualifies as essential reading for anyone who plays to win. This book packs a wallop from start to finish.
Scott Hamilton
There is no way to succeed in anything without the proper preparation—unless you are my three-year-old, and you think you know already. Karen's book shows you how to prepare your body and mind to play better, and most importantly, enjoy your golf.
Kraig Kann
Karen Palacios-Jansen is not just another instructor. She's a 'difference-maker.' In years of enthusiastic instruction, she's made people feel comfortable with the process of improving. Most importantly, she has unlocked the secret to training the body and the mind to go along with the fundamentals of the game.
