JASON KARP, PhD | CREATOR, REVO2LUTION RUNNING™
It all started with a race once around the track in sixth grade in Marlboro, New Jersey. Little did Jason know how much it would define his career and his life. He was placed on a yellow brick road, and there was no turning back. He had found his passion for the science of athletic performance.
Since that first race, and after many years of dedication to his craft, Dr. Jason Karp has become an internationally-recognized running and fitness expert, speaking at fitness industry conferences and track and field coaching clinics around the U.S. and the world. As creator of the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification program, he brings the best running education and programming to the fitness industry. Jason is the 2011 IDEA National Personal Trainer of the Year and 2014 recipient of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition Community Leadership award.
A prolific writer, Jason has more than 400 articles published in running, coaching, and fitness magazines and scientific journals and is the author of eight books, including The Inner Runner, Run Your Fat Off, and Running a Marathon For Dummies.
Jason is a USA Track & Field certified coach, has taught USA Track & Field’s level 3 coaching certification, and has led elite coaching camps at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. A runner since sixth grade, he was a member of the silver-medal winning U.S. Masters Team at the 2013 World Maccabiah Games in Israel.
