ChiRunning Founder Danny Dreyer
I can teach you to love running! The profound personal running transformation that I experienced as I began to practice ChiRunning led me to become a certified instructor so that I could share the joy of running with others. If you’ve never run, if you’ve tried it and didn’t enjoy it, if you’ve had chronic injuries, if you want to continue to enjoy running, if you want to start an exercise program, if you want to run faster and easier, if you want to run uninjured – I can teach you how with the ChiRunning/Walking technique.
A Registered Nurse and soon to be Certified Exercise Specialist by the American College of Sports Medicine, I have spent my career in both the fitness and medical worlds understanding a broad range of adult health care needs. Working with people who value health and fitness is my passion.
I have participated in many different sports throughout my life including two Hawaii Championship Ironman Triathlons in 1982 where I finished in the top 10 women. I also have accomplishments in endurance cycling, and running marathons and ultramarathons. Chronic knee pain stopped my endurance running and I soon resigned myself to short runs and low mileage.
ChiRunning changed all that! I’ve rediscovered my love of long distance trail running in the beautiful Sierras near my home in Reno, Nevada – ChiRunning allows me to enjoy running the hilly trails effortlessly for long miles. Since I started ChiRunning, I am uninjured, running mileage I haven’t achieved since my 30’s and maintaining a weight that I thought I would never see again.
By the end of a workshop you will understand how to apply the technique immediately to your running or walking, and be well on the way to enjoying a lifelong program of fitness, health and wellbeing. It would be my pleasure to teach you the ChiRunning or ChiWalking technique so you can experience everything it can offer you!
