Learn to Run Injury- Free

Leave knee pain, IT- Band Syndrome, and other aches and pains in the dust. Danny has combined his 20+ years of running and T’ai Chi practice to create a running technique that is proven to reduce impact*, which significantly reduces injury and risk of injury. In this workshop you’ll learn how, and why, it works.

Runs Farther and Faster with Less Effort


Streamline your running by using your energy wisely. With good body mechanics, relaxation and breathing techniques, you’ll learn how to prevent fatigue, improve your endurance, and gain speed.

 Maximize the power of your core to move forward.  Most walking injuries occur from the waist down. When we initiate movement from our core, the body’s largest muscle group, we don’t need to use our legs for propulsion. This greatly reduces impact, pain, and risk of injury. A strong core also improves posture, balance, and stability.

• Unite your Upper Body and Lower BodyThe Chi techniques are all about keeping your energy flowing so you can move efficiently. You’ll learn how to optimize your movement to keep the workload balanced between your Upper Body and Lower Body.

• Get the results you want with fitness walkingWith good body mechanics and relaxation techniques, you'll improve your endurance and gain speed while preventing fatigue. You’ll be able to walk farther and faster with less effort so you can make your fitness goals a reality
