training options

Marc offers several coaching options with a focus on individualization.  Marc works with groups, individuals, teams, and families. 


ChiRunning Instruction: Marc is a Certified Master ChiRunning® instructor.  He can teach ChiRunning® techniques to groups as large as 15 or as small as one.  ChiRunning instruction can benefit new runners, experienced runners, and everyone in between. 


Below is an annotated list of offerings.  Please email Marc at with any questions and/or if you are interested in any of the services/opportunities.  And, of course, Marc is  happy to jump on the phone to talk about these options and figure out what best meets your needs. 


  • Virtual Coaching: Can’t make it to meet in person?  No problem.  I have the ability to coach you virtually using Zoom and an iPhone!  All you need to do is send a 30 second video and set up a time to meet “online.”

  • Guided Runs/Walks: For many people, the most efficient way to develop ChiRunning/ChiWalking technique is get real-time, individualized coaching.  So, go for a run side-by-side with the coach and get specific feedback.

Important Notes:

  • Customization and individualization are key to training… so please note Marc is very flexible in offering most items on the menu in different group sizes (from individual to small groups/families to large groups) as well in different combinations (i.e. ChiHills can be combined with ChiTreadmill, etc.).

  • DISCOUNTS available – the more you purchase at once the bigger the discount!
