Dr. Karl Knopf has taught corrective exercise to the disabled and older adults for over 40 years at Foothill College where he was the Coordinator of the Adaptive Fitness Therapy AA Degree Program at the college. I am a graduate of his program. Dr. Karl has literally written the book on boomer and senior fitness as he has authored over 15 books, as well as numerous articles.
Dr. Knopf was the founder and has been the President of Fitness Educators of Older Adults for over 15 years and is currently on the Board of the Sit and Be Fit Organization. Dr. Knopf is also contributor to the International Sports Science Association courses on Fitness Therapy and Senior Fitness.
Throughout Dr. Knopf’s career he has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and has been quoted in major newspapers such LA Times, San Jose Mercury and Washington Post. He has served as a consultant to the State of California, Stanford University, Time Life Medical and he even contributed a chapter to a book by Richard Simmons. He is a frequent guest on radio and often speaks at Wellness Events.
In this interview, Dr. Karl shares his views on fitness, fun, retirement and staying healthy, with a focus on us boomers. To me, Dr. Karl is the Robin Williams of fitness. He is never at a loss for words and his words are golden. People would take his courses just to hear his lectures. Check this out, I guarantee you’ll be wanting more.
