June 2013 Instructor of the Month is Lisa Pozzoni:
Lisa Pozzoni never thought she would be a runner! But one day in 2008, one of her personal training clients told her to read the ChiRunning book and the rest is history. She immediately decided to become an Instructor.
Her goal is to help existing runners continue their passion without injury. Lisa also loves to teach beginners the right way to run so they avoid injury and make running a lifelong fitness habit. Lisa completed her first marathon on 2/19/2012, her 41st birthday. “I would’ve never considered it if weren’t for ChiRunning! It’s changed my life in so many ways and I love to share it with people”.
Lisa is very active in the community on many levels. Her passion is combining ChiWalking and ChiRunning with charities. “It’s a win-win when you are training for an event. You are getting healthy and giving back at the same time!”
