BOOK REVIEWS...

"I have several of Karen's books, and I use them constantly. The handstand drills book, in particular, has been invaluable in teaching my gymnasts about basic body tightness and control as well as the handstand. Each books contains such a wide variety of drills that I can pick and choose the ones that are best for my gymnasts and tailor them to our needs. FABULOUS BOOKS!"
Moselle Campbell

"Full of information... This book contains a lot of drills and conditioning (obviously) for running, vaulting, bars, dance skills, and press handstands.

Meet the Author

Karen Goeller, CSCS, has educated thousands in the fitness and gymnastics industries with her books, articles, and in person. She has been training athletes since 1978 and adults since 1985. Karen Goeller is the author of more gymnastics books than anyone in the USA. Karen started writing books after she was involved in an accident in 2000 and suffered permanent spinal damage. She stopped coaching gymnastics and left her advertising job. To remain involved in gymnastics and fitness, Karen turned to writing. "I felt like I had a ton of information in my head that was not being used. I knew it was the perfect time to pass on this knowledge and writing books was the perfect avenue." Karen Goeller's books have been called the "most useful on the market." Karen's recent fitness books are the Swing Set Fitness books. It wasn't until the Swing Set Fitness books that Karen started to make good progress with her physical rehabilitation. Karen shared, "I finally feel like myself again. I knew I was getting stronger, mentally and physically." When asked if she is healed from the accident, Karen replied, "I am still injured, but that no longer defines me." Karen has produced State Champions, National TOPS Team Athletes, and Empire State Games Athletes. Three National Champions are from Karen's gymnastics club. This success was after her 1991 cancer surgery. The cancer surgery was a success, but Karen was left with lymphedema in her leg. She has written a book on life with lymphedema. Karen and her athletes have been featured on TV, radio, and in newspapers since the 1990's. She has appeared on Good Morning America, GoodDay NY, Eyewitness News, and NY Views (old show) among others as well as in The NY Times, NY Newsday, Brooklyn Bridge Magazine, Interview Magazine, and most Brooklyn, NY newspapers. More recently Karen has been featured on Your Story Matters, Lymphedema Mavens, Erin Ley Radio, Lynn Johnson Radio, I Run MY Body Radio, Late Night with Johnny Potenza TV, Talkin' Health with Joe Kasper Radio, Coast Star, Asbury Park Press, Observer/Reporter, Staten Island Advance, and Inside Gymnastics Magazine. Karen has worked for world famous Olympic coach, Bela Karolyi and was the first female camp director. Before earning her BA Degree, Karen's education included training as an EMT, Physical Therapist, and Nutritionist. She has had certifications such as EMT-D, Nutritional Analysis, Fitness Trainer, many USAG certifications, and the NSCA-CSCS certification.
