Chi Machine at the Savannah Marathon

Chi Machine at the Savannah Marathon

By Joffrion Mitts

Last weekend my sister, Janie, completed her 25th marathon event in Savannah, GA, with our sister, Chandler, and me cheering her on. Over the last 10 years Janie has completed 12 full and 13 half marathons, a 100 mile bike ride, and a triathlon! Janie has used her Chi Machine in training and travels with the Chi Machine to each event. She has participated in marathons in Alaska, Bermuda, San Francisco, San Diego, New Orleans, Houston, and Disney World, just to name a few places.

Janie gets on the Chi Machine for 12 minutes at 5 a.m. before the marathon in order to get in a meditative state and to get focused for the event. The movement of the Chi Machine takes oxygenated blood to every cell in her body, which gives her more energy! When Janie returns to the hotel after the event, she takes a shower and gets on the Chi Machine for 20 minutes.

The movement of the Chi Machine takes the lactic acid out of the muscles which relieves the soreness and achiness! While many other marathon participants are limping around that evening and the next day, Janie is ready to go out and have fun! When Janie gets off the Chi Machine after the event, she says, “Wow! I feel so much better!”
