We have the results of the Chi Running/West Virginia University Survey. Over 2500 people responded and we’re thrilled, not only with the news that Chi Running is helping so many people, but also with the great feedback that will help us improve how we we teach and share ChiRunning with others.

Survey Highlights:

  • 90% of you said you were probably or definitely able to change your running mechanics with Chi Running.
  • 60% of you said you were able to make noticeable corrections in less than a month.
  • 54% of you had an injury.
