I enjoy helping folks develop their ChiRunning and CHI Walking Skills. As a retired fire department instructor I have always enjoyed instructing and being part of that “AH HA” moment when someone finally gets it. The enjoyment I experience when Chi Walking and ChiRunning is something I want to share with others so that they will get their own “Ah HA” moment.

I teach classes in the Inland Empire, Temecula, North County, San Diego, and the Coachella Valley. I also provide private lessons, video analysis, and virtual coaching. If workshop dates do not work for you consider doing a private lesson for a very reasonable amount. I also am available for virtual coaching. Free clinics can be scheduled for groups and well as group discounts for workshops are available. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I am here to help you discover how ChiRunning will change the way you run for the better.

All levels of runners are welcome to join me in Temecula year-round and also in the winter months in Palm Desert for running meet ups. Check “Events” to get dates and times.

You can also follow me on the following social networking sites for more frequent fitness/running tips.
