Hi! I'm Cheryl Lloyd.
I CAN TEACH YOU TO LOVE RUNNING! The profound personal running transformation that I experienced as I began to practice ChiRunning led me to become a certified instructor so that I could share the joy of running with others. If you’ve never run, if you’ve tried it and didn’t enjoy it, if you’ve had chronic injuries, if you want to continue to enjoy running, if you want to start an exercise program, if you want to run faster and easier, if you want to run uninjured – I can teach you how with the ChiRunning/Walking technique.
Certified as a ChiRunning Instructor in 2011, I have been recognized as a Senior Level Instructor since January 2013 and was promoted to Master, one of only 27 in the world, in 2014. My dedication and passion for teaching earned me Instructor of the Month for April 2012 and again in January 2015. I am also a Registered Nurse, having spent my career in both the fitness and medical worlds. I understand a broad range of adult health care needs. Working with people who value health and fitness is my passion.
I have participated in many different sports throughout my life including two Hawaii Championship Ironman Triathlons in 1982 where I finished in the top 10 women. I also have accomplishments in endurance cycling, and running marathons and ultramarathons. Chronic knee pain stopped my endurance running and I soon resigned myself to short runs and low mileage.
ChiRunning changed all that! I’ve rediscovered my love of long distance trail running in the beautiful Sierras near my home in Reno, Nevada – ChiRunning allows me to enjoy running the hilly trails effortlessly for long miles. Since I began practicing ChiRunning in 2010, I am uninjured, running mileage I never dreamed I'd want to run, racing ultramarathon distances of 50K and 50miles and maintaining a weight that I thought I would never see again.
By the end of a workshop you will understand how to apply the technique immediately to your running or walking, and be well on the way to enjoying a lifelong program of fitness, health and wellbeing. It would be my pleasure to teach you the ChiRunning or ChiWalking technique so you can experience everything it can offer you!
Do you fit into one of these groups?
You’ve never run;
Then the ChiRunning & ChiWalking technique is right for you. You might have other reasons for not running or walking, but whatever they are give this technique a chance to allow you the joy of experiencing what it means to move in balance with ease and without injury.
