Would encourage anyone to do this. I started in January not been able to jog/run for 2 minutes without stopping and in 5 weeks Emer had us geared up and finished the 5k. Now each week our times get better and better.


Brilliant workshop Emer O Brien! I got so much out of it and I’m already looking forward to getting out on the road to practice. Really informative and great fun! Thanks a million!


Anyone out there who is a beginner runner or an advanced runner, & wants to avoid injuries or like me trying to recover from injury, the answer Emer O Brien Chi Running coach based in Piltown, Kilkenny. I was at a workshop with her this morning and am blown away by it. I encourage all who run to contact her, I guarantee you will be delighted that you did.


Thank you Emer for getting me back running. Your couch to 5k programme is amazing. I couldn’t have done it without you. I couldn’t recommend you highly enough. Thank you


Completed the Couch to 5k programme tonight! Honestly if you are thinking of starting running, go to Emer! She is fantastic! Emer is fantastic at what she does and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough! It’s a decision you will not regret.


I love love love training with Emer. I do her running group and Pilates. She is amazingly positive and encouraging. Can’t recommend these classes enough. The pay as you go option is fantastic for busy working mammies and the choice of classes is fantastic. Plus Emer goes over and above by providing tips and coaching and encouragement outside of classes at all my runs. Thanks Emer, you rock.


Awesome trainer supports you all the way… Emer creates a well-thought, easy to follow running plan


Emer, I can’t believe that I have managed to come so far in a few weeks. I am delighted with myself but more so delighted with your plan, encouragement and support along the way.
