App Reviews

  • Disappointed

    By skelator the brave
    I'm disappointed with this app. I should be able to enter my own info about my run such as mileage. I don't always want to use data to map my run and some of my running is on a treadmill.
  • Awful

    By Lady Maire
    Wish I could get my money back. Boring, repetitious and monotonous. Too much money for repeating the same thing over and over.
  • Awesome

    By 1st marathon at 53
    Just ran my 1st marathon at 53 year old! Before ChiRunning, I never ran more than 3 miles before pain stopped me. With ChiRunning app and book I found that running long distance does not have to hurt!!!! Running can be fun joyful experience that changes your life. I am a physician and I am convinced that with ChiRunning app and book, anyone can run marathon without pain or injury. This app costs $10. Couple of burgers costs more... As a physician, I highly recommend this app and ChiRunning program.
  • Excellent runner's app

    By Mike McG
    I took the Chi running class with Danny Dreyer and it was great. Having this app is like having Danny out there helping you every step of the way. Chi running is as valuable as meditation and yoga in ones pursuit for a sound mind and a sound body. Enjoy!
  • WASTE IF $10

    By MaikaBoi
    DO NOT BUY THIS AP! I bought this ap to help my running; however, the "training" lessons are merely short clips of the exact same thing you'll find online and YouTube. It also does not go into detail on how to actually prepare your body or movements. This ap will only benefit you if you've already had previous lessons in chi running.
  • Chi-Running

    By Oaken007
    Me and my girlfriend run together using the metronome and the Chi Lessons. We just completed a half marathon. It was her second one and my first. Great app and totally worth the price!
  • User since February

    By KenBMD
    Love the app. Have been a chi runner since 2009, always trying to improve my form! The built in metronome has helped significantly along with, distance and time. Would like to see splits. Just recently history does not look at weekly stats nor cumulative stats for any other range. Hope it will integrate with iWatch and Apple health.
  • Problems with Map my Run

    By Vicita
    The app has the option to share with map my run. However, i have not been able to do it. It freezes when it says loading. Sent two emails. Finally someone replied with a question. Answered right away and still no response from them. Very poor customer service. I have not been able to even try the app.
  • Pandora bug

    By c(O_o)3
    This is a review of the app, not of Danny or his program! (Which is wonderful.) Audio on pandora is turned down once I start the chirunning app, and remains and a quiet level throughout the run. The volume of my music should only be reduced when Danny is talking during the guided runs - not the entire time. Thank you
  • Won't install

    By JD-
    This app won't install on my iPad. Very disappointing. I really want to like this app. Love the books and overall program, but not this app.
