Jean Gillis is a Certified Holistic Health Coach, USAT 2 Triathlon Coach, 200 HR Yoga Teacher, and ACSM Personal Trainer. Diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2012, but determined to improve her health without medication, she now uses the knowledge gained from that journey to inspire others to take charge of their health, and empower them with the tools to do so. Jean believes that being physically active is a powerful tool for maintaining good health, and the Chi Walking/Running method allows individuals to do it pain-free, and with less effort. With a background in mindfulness, Jean highly values the ChiRunning skill of “Body Sensing,” or creating clear communication between mind and body. When mind and body listen and respond to each other effectively, you can accurately evaluate running pain and make beneficial changes to your running technique that will last a lifetime. Jean is also an experienced endurance athlete, two-time Ironman triathlete, ultra distance trail runner and marathoner. For more information, visit or connect with her at

”In May 2019, I was sent to the Massachusetts Army National Guard Warrior FIT program where I met Jean. Jean was teaching ChiRunning, a technique that I had never heard of. I have always hated running and had never really done much distance running before. After being coached by Jean for 3 months, I have a new found love for running and even saw almost 5 minutes drop off my two mile run. Running has never felt so good or been so enjoyable for me. I look forward to continue using the ChiRunning technique as I continue toward my fitness goals. I cannot thank Jean enough for bringing this technique to the Warrior FIT program.”

Paul, Army National Guardsman
