ChiWalking AARP story

Running is a Technique Sport

Odd as it sounds, many people still don't know that running and walking are technique activites. And until recently there have been countless books, courses, and classes on how to improve your golf swing, your tennis game, your swim stroke and your cycling technique, but none teaching you how to run or walk properly. Then Danny Dreyer formulated ChiRunning and ChiWalking. The ChiRunning and ChiWalking programs offer a real solution to the high rate of injury and inefficiency that plagues the activities of running and walking. 

The ChiRunning and ChiWalking methods combine the principles of T'ai Chi with the power, energy and grace of running and walking to create revolutionary forms of running and walking that take the pounding, pain and potential damage out of these activities. These methods empower beginning runners and walkers with a sense of their strength and potential. The methods also help experienced runners and walkers increase their performances and rekindle enjoyment for their respective sports. By following the ChiRunning or ChiWalking programs you will increase your mental focus and clarity, and enhance your overall running or walking ease.

ChiRunning and ChiWalking not only help prevent injuries, each method promotes greater speed and distance with much less effort.

Other benefits of ChiRunning and ChiWalking include:
  • Strengthens core muscles
  • Builds great posture
  • Loosens joints & relaxes limbs
  • Increases mental focus & clarity
  • Develops good breathing technique
  • Gives you more energy
  • Makes running and walking more effortless and fun!

No matter what your level or ability ChiRunning and ChiWalking programs make running and walking accessible and appealing -- whether you've stopped running or walking due to injury, you're intimidated by the difficulty and potential danger of running or walking, or you're looking for a competitive edge, ChiRunning and ChiWalking provide the right tools to help your reach your goals.
