Have you ever found a passion that burns so deep inside of you that you jump out of bed every morning and run with it, even before making your bed? For our Chief Running Officer Dr. Jason Karp, it all started with a race once around the track in sixth grade. A love and passion were born, a yellow brick road was laid out, and that love and passion were cultivated and nurtured along that road. (And he still doesn’t make his bed!)
Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking differently. We believe running doesn’t just change people’s waistlines or give them a faster PR to brag about; it changes their lives. Running empowers us to narrow the gap between who we are and who we want to be, who we believe ourselves to be. Through running, we fulfill our destiny as physical beings, and on the foundation of a fitter physical being, we can build a better life.
Our courses use science and a deep understanding of how physiology works, how running works. We know exactly what it’s like to help a fitness professional or coach become an expert and be successful, and we also understand the pleasure of making that happen.
When you earn the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification, you not only get the best running education in the world; you get a complete running experience, because what we do serves as the proof of what we believe.
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
– Shakespeare’s Juliet
At the heart of the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification is its name, which includes an acronym of the 3 physiological factors that determine running fitness and performance:
RUNNING ECONOMY | VO₂MAX | LACTATE THRESHOLD
If it were called by any other name, it would smell as sweet and still be the best in the industry.
