Improve performance and prevent injuries with Chi Walking and Chi Running

Improve performance and prevent injuries with Chi Walking and Chi Running

We are hosting ChiRunning/Walking Workshops in June with 2020 Instructor of the Year, Marc Waxman. Registration is open, and spots are limited!

Watch Dr. Pelto's interview with Marc and learn more about this technique and how it can help our patients go back to activity safely and prevent new injuries.

This is for you IF...

Improving your technique is an essential part of recovering from injury and preventing future injuries. 

So if you want to get in your 10,000 steps a day safely and sustainably, or if you want to keep running and avoid the pain cycles so many of you deal with because of poor mechanics and movement, ChiWalking and ChiRunning could be your path back!

Walkers will only need to attend the May 30th session.  Runners, however, will need to attend both the May 30th and the June 6th sessions.  Remember, you must walk before you run, and there are NO shortcuts to doing things the right way!


Central Massachusetts Podiatry will offer an Introduction to ChiRunning and ChiWalking Workshop at CMP’s new location in Westborough.

When: May 30th and June 6th from 530-730 PM (Walkers attend only the May 30th session and Runners attend both sessions).

Where: Central Massachusetts Podiatry, 24 Lyman St,  Westborough, MA

What: Join Master ChiRunning/ChiWalking Instructor Marc Waxman for a 2-hour (ChiWalking only) or 4-hour (ChiWalking + ChiRunning) session focused on the fundamentals of ChiRunning/ChiWalking. 

Through modeling, drills, and real-time feedback Marc will support participants in learning how to access the deep power reserves of their core muscles and “move from the middle” with a technique that leads to comfortable and efficient movement. 

Topics include using the forces of nature (and not your muscles!) to move, establishing a consistent cadence while running, increasing your pace through relaxation, efficiently navigating hill running, and much more. 

Why: Your body will thank you for the time you spend learning ChiRunning/ChiWalking!

Who: The workshop is designed for individuals of all conditioning and experience levels interested in efficient running, whether you are an experienced runner, taking up running for the first time, or anywhere in between.

How much: Typical price is $100/person for ChiWalking only and $150/person for ChiRunning (attendance at both sessions).  CMP patients get 50% discount = ONLY $50 for ChiWalking and only $75/PERSON for ChiRunning.

To register: Email Marc at to reserve your space. Spots are limited and are first come/first served. Please indicate whether you are interested in ChiWalking or ChiWalking + ChiRunning. This event will sell out fast.
