This (about to be) 54-year-old woman thanks you for giving me back my love of running! I have been assimilating all that I learned from you in June and am running much more… and enjoying it more… than I
have in years.  Thank you so much…

A Message From Danny

Running is a frustrating process for many people. So, if that’s you, you’re not alone. It can be really daunting and disappointing to realize that you’ve put a lot of effort into your running without seeing the results you’d like (yet).

We’ve been helping runners of all levels, from total beginners to elites, for over two decades.

The reason behind both success and failure is all in the technique. If you know how to run well, you will succeed. And, if you don’t have good running skills in your body… you could do tons of conditioning and still not get the results you’re looking for. We created an effective and easy online course where you get the coaching you need every step of the way. We’ll show you how to make your running easier and injury-free… at any speed.

In 1997 Founder, Danny Dreyer, began combining his practice of T’ai Chi with his long distance running and racing. By bringing these two great disciplines together, we’ve helped countless runners to accomplish all their running goals: get rid of injuries, improve performance and become devoted runners for life.

ChiRunning is now published in 12 languages and has sold over a half million copies. And, we have over 200 Certified ChiRunning Instructors in 27 countries.

I would LOVE to take the guesswork out of this for you.

This course will literally save you years in trial and error

… and copayments to your physical therapist.

But maybe you’re not sure if you even need a course in running. Many runners just go out and run. Many folks say, “I ran as a kid. Why should I pay to learn how to run?” But, here are 3 of the biggest problems I see in runners… all the time.

The 3 Biggest Running Mistakes

1. Learn to use your whole body when you run and you'll significantly reduce the use of your legs:

Your running will get much easier when you can bring in the use of your upper body, your core, and especially your mental focus.

2. Adapt your running technique to match your circumstances:

Your running environment is constantly changing, so why would you respond the same in every instance? The ChiRunning technique takes this into account and makes you infinitely adaptable as a runner.

3. If you want to get faster, first get rid of what slows you down:

For years running coaches have told us the only way to run faster is to get stronger legs. But, the best path to successful running is to get rid of poor running habits that waste your energy. You can actually get faster without increasing your effort.
