Simle, it's injury-free and pain-free. ChiRunning is based on movement principles of T’ai Chi, but you don’t need to know T’ai Chi to ChiRun. All you need to know is how using your core can transform your running.

Chi (pronounced "chee") is the energy that unites body, mind, and spirit.Energy moves from your core (also known as your “center” or “dantien”) into the limbs to create movement.

Engaging your core and relaxing your limbs allows your legs to simply support your body weight instead of pushing or pulling it forward.

When your structure is aligned and your muscles and joints are relaxed, chi can flow freely through the body, making running feel effortless

Instructor Bio: Carl Iacozili

“Getting older is not an option but reaching your goals is, let me help you get there.”

I moved to this area 20 years ago to enjoy all of the sports that the mountains have to offer. As a transplant from the flat lands of Ohio, my love for training started the moment I arrived in the mountains. I had never experienced the kind of sports minded community we have here in the Valley.

My passion for athletics and sports grew with each event I accomplished and I found myself wanting to pass that passion on to others. I have coached high school mountain bike teams, football, gymnastics and presently coach Ninja Warrior Training for both kids and adults. It was all of this that led me to pursuing my CPT from ACE Fitness so that I can train more effectively and help others to achieve their fitness goals.
