About the Author:

Karen Palacios-Jansen is former Managing Editor of Golf FitnessMagazine and was voted the 2008-09 LPGA National Teacher of the Year. A regular guest instructor on the Golf Channel's "Golf Academy Live," she lives in Mooresville, NC (Charlotte area).

Review:

Golf Fitness qualifies as essential reading for anyone who plays to win. This book packs a wallop from start to finish. (Art Sellinger, two-time National Long Drive champion)

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. (Scott Hamilton, 1984 Olympic gold medallist)

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. (Kraig Kann, Golf Channel host/personality and founder and managing director of HTK Media)

Comprehensive, compelling and immensely practical. . . . It integrates all the diverse elements of training into a single dynamic, multidisciplinary workout plan. This is a must-have training guide for every serious golfer. (Jim Loehr, renowned Mental Toughness coach and best-selling author)

I recommend Golf Fitness for anyone looking for optimum results and, ultimately, more enjoyment for your game! (Christina Ricci, author of the Golf Survival Guides and creator of On the Road to More ParsTM, a groundbreaking platform for women who love golf)

Karen has been devoted to combining fitness with the game of golf for many years. Golf Fitness will help you in your daily life as well as improving your golf game. (Gerry Weber, CEO Lady of America/LOA Fitness for Women)

We are so pleased to have Karen as a member of our LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Division. . . . Her knowledge of golf and fitness is amazing. . . . It is clear that golfers of all ages and abilities will benefit from this book. (Mike Whan, LPGA commissioner)

For golfers seeking to enhance their performance, from those like myself who are older or weekend players to the pro aspirants, Karen and her Golf Fitness Magazine colleagues have provided a clearly written and well-illustrated resource for self-diagnosing and correcting our swing faults by developing our own physical, mental, and nutritional fitness program. . . . [It] include[s] excellent information on how to avoid or treat the common golfing injuries. (Michael S. Ellis, MD, clinical professor, Tulane and LSU Schools of Medicine, New Orleans)

Golf Fitness is loaded with great ideas for getting fitter and playing better, and who doesn't want both. (Cheryl Anderson, director of instruction, Mike Bender Golf Academy, 2006 LPGA National Teacher of the Year)
