Karen Goeller…
Actor, Author, Sports Performance Coach

Since the beginning Karen Goeller’s books have been used as references by fitness experts and coaches to create countless training programs. Her books have been called the “most useful on the market.”

When she was involved in an accident in 2000 and suffered permanent spinal damage she stopped working. 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.”

It wasn’t until the Swing Set Fitness books in 2006 that Karen started to make great progress with her physical rehabilitation. Karen shared, “I finally felt like myself again. I knew I was getting stronger, mentally and physically.” When asked if she is completely 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 were from Karen’s gymnastics club. Most of her success was after her 1991 cancer surgery.

Her leg was as wide as her waist immediately after the surgery. Karen has written a book on her life since the surgery, “Lymphedema: Sentenced to Life in Bed, but I Escaped.”
