Connect with Trent

Trent Corey received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa in 2005. His undergraduate degree is in biomedical engineering, which gave him a great understanding of biomechanics and appreciation for the body that moves as a whole.
As a runner for nearly 30 years with high school and college success, Trent has understood how improving form can make you faster and less prone to injury. When introduced to ChiRunning and ChiWalking, everything about it made sense, plus it gave him the deeper connection to the energetic joy that is relaxed and free. Having dealt with injuries before, ChiRunning and ChiWalking has helped to alleviate some of these issues. Running and walking have become more meditative, a practice that he loves to share with others.
Trent gives good common sense instruction and really knows how to transform all levels of walkers and runners using the ChiRunning and ChiWalking method. With the experience of a physical therapist, you will be getting the best experience to improve your running form as Trent gives you guidance. His support is amazing, with great follow through to help you establish healthy movement habits for life.

”I simply cannot thank you enough for introducing me to Chi Running. I fear that the path that I was on of continual injury and pain to my lower leg would have eventually caused me to give up running. But, thanks to time spent at your clinic, your workshop, reading the Chi Running book and the ongoing work that I do on my own, I have been healthy for well over 18 months.

”I used to wake up and carefully take the first few steps out of bed because my lower legs would be tight and stiff. Now I can spring out of bed now.

”I used to just resign myself to the fact that my calves would ache after a run for hours. Now, I can’t remember the last time that my calves ached.

”I used to try every contraption, gadget and stretch to alleviate leg pain – tens units, the stick, compression socks and the like. Now, they sit in a bin collecting dust.

”I used to be able to run 2 days in a row and then would have to take a day of rest. Now, I run multiple days without needing to take a rest day.

”And, yes, all of this means that I can run pain free and enjoy running so much more. But, for me, I like tangible results. So….yesterday….I got that tangible result. I ran the Foot Traffic Flat Half Marathon in 1:48, which is 4 minutes off of my PR. That PR had stood for exactly 10 years.

”I’m a believer in Chi Running and continue to work on my form every single day”

“As an avid trail runner in my 40’s, averaging 40 miles a week on beautiful mountain trails and loves to race, I tend to deal with an assortment of running injuries.  I thought it was just the nature of the sport and that I already knew how to run.  I was wrong.   Dr. Corey, an advanced and effortless trail runner himself, is always educating me on new techniques while observing my form for the risk of potential injuries.  Dr. Corey shares a wealth of knowledge and technique in the field of running and models everything he advocates in his own running.  In fact he advocates physical health and integrates simple effective exercises throughout his day.

After finally giving into my knee pain, I was preparing to take a long break from running to heal.  Addressing the problem with Dr. Corey, he actually kept me on the trail with new exercises and tools for practicing a lighter run.  The knee pain is almost completely gone and I am still running. On our runs, he can even tell if my form is wrong just by the sound of my foot hitting the trail or the efficiency of my cardiovascular system by the sound of my breathing and observing my posture.

If you’re like me and want to be able to enjoy the amazing liberating sport of running through old age, and/or become a strong efficient runner, I recommend Dr. Corey for his valuable knowledge. You will be learning from a calm and patient teacher.”
