Here is feedback from a ChiRunning half day workshop participant from earlier this year:

Thanks to the Chi Running course I took with you on June 8th, I completed one of my best half marathons ever – the Bird-In-Hand Half Marathon on 9/7 in Bird-In Hand, PA. Although I had been using the technique I had learned from the Chi-Running video for over a year, your course made critical refinements to my form which improved my performance. One of the critical

Testimonials – 09/17/13

Sep. 17th 2013

Here is feedback from three participants who recently took a half day ChiRunning® workshop:

Thank you SO much for Saturday. I don’t really have any runner friends since I moved to the US and it was lovely to talk about a hobby I love with other enthusiastic people. I came home on Saturday buzzing to my fiancé about how fantastic it was. He had bought me a session in NY with [xxx] and although I learned some things from it, I found their technique difficult to relate to. This just made sense and

Aug. 19th 2013

Here is feedback from a new runner who recently took a half day ChiRunning® workshop:

“David took us through posture and running drills teaching us to simply move with the energy surrounding us instead of running against it. We practiced each step and methodically transformed our bodies into fluid, relaxed runners. Yes, that’s right, I said runner. I am now a runner. I am a little bit faster and lot less afraid of running. I look forward to focusing on my form and become more and more fluid and natural as I practice. I don’t hurt for days after each run and I can’t wait to see Coach David again for

One of the great benefits to sharing fitness and health is client feedback. The testimonials come in a all flavors and sometimes I just have to sit back and acknowledge (again) how lucky I am to direct my time and energy towards helping others.

Here is a feedback/testimonial email I received shortly after a recent half day ChiRunning workshop. This person had experienced a lot of success already through the ChiRunning DVD, and attended the workshop to

Nov. 26th 2012

More and more time on our feet training for longer events can expose hidden imbalances and highlight potential adjustments. This distance or “conditioning” phase provides ongoing tests for our form physically, nutritionally and mentally. As we learn more and more, and learn about our own unique challenges, the “practice” mindset develops the tools needed to get to our finish line. Here is an email I received from a first time marathoner who worked diligently at being well prepared and then

A ChiRunning multisession program or multiple private sessions provide periodic feedback as the technique adjustments are practiced. These feedback points can help you stay on track and making forward progress.

One such multisession program is a Triathlon Training Program I coach with a Total Immersion swim coach and a cycling technique coach. Here is an email I received from a participant after running his first

Practice, practice, practice. Adjusting running technique takes time and patience, but the payoffs can be huge. Here is some recent feedback from a program participant who was troubled with lower leg Achilles and shin problems:

A ChiRunning ‘Essentials’ clinic is usually four hours in duration. I prefer this clinic format since it provides a balance between a great learning experience and participant investment in time/resources. Public clinics can be hosted a fitness centers, YMCAs, etc. or held at similar space locations such as dance or yoga studios and community centers.

Here are some feedback from recent ChiRunning clinic

Thanks.”
