It all started with a race once around the track in sixth grade. Little did Jason know how much it would change and define his life.
Since that first race, Dr. Jason Karp has become an internationally-recognized running and fitness expert and owner of Run-Fit, LLC, providing coaching and educational services to runners and fitness professionals around the world. He is also the creator of the REVO₂LUTION RUNNING™ certification. He 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 rare combination of education and experience, Jason holds three degrees in exercise science, including a PhD in exercise physiology from Indiana University, a master’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Calgary, and a bachelor’s degree in exercise and sport science from Penn State University.
A prolific writer who is more widely published than anyone in the fitness and coaching industries, he 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 nationally-certified running coach through USA Track & Field, has taught USA Track & Field’s level 3 coaching certification, and has led elite coaching camps at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. He has been a runner since sixth grade and was a member of the silver-medal winning U.S. Masters Team at the 2013 World Maccabiah Games in Israel
