Meet Me

Carey Adam

I am Carey Adam, Physiotherapist, Health Coach, mamma, runner and founder of RunningMoms. I am so excited you are here so I can share my running addiction and passion with you. I want to inspire you to start, empower you to change and to surround you with an awesome community of RunningMoms. My mission is to get women everywhere to simply put their shoes on, get out the door and feel the power of running on their body, mind and soul .

Being a mom is hard. I’ve been greatly humbled by all things motherhood, yet I have discovered strength deep within myself by letting go of the guilt over the all things I should be doing. I have learned to take the time I need to be my best through simply getting out for a daily run that is all about ME. This is what inspired me to start RunningMoms and help others to discover more within themselves. I have felt crazy and unbalanced, stress and fatigue beyond measure, anxiety, low energy, frustration, guilt and loneliness. I know you may be experiencing these same feelings during this time you have to be fosusing every ounce of energy on those litle people around you.

I know women, especially mothers, need support, guidance, coffee and a little bit of wine when the kids are finally asleep to find the time and space to get back to themselves, their purpose and their passion for life beyond just the kids. I will help you find what re-energizes you and how you can get more of that in your life to find energy, sanity and happiness.

My goal as your coach is to make you stronger: physically, mentally and emotionally. I know movement, strength, confidence and happiness comes when we do what we love and when we start with movement. I combine the physical aspects of running and strength training exercises with mindful awareness and basic wholesome nutrition. If you will ACCEPT NO EXCUSES – ONLY RESULTS, then I have a program for you. My goal is to keep the training filled with high energy, loads of positive reinforcement and a supportive community of awesome RunningMoms.

I believe that we all have the ability to free ourselves from barriers and old patterns so we can become limitless.

  • I want to empower and be inspired by others.
  • I am passionate about life.  Everyday.  Actually, our little family motto is "choose to be happy".
  • I am compassionate about supporting women, teaching our children the basics of nutrition and movement and about our natural environment.
  • I feel deeply rewarded by the effort made by mamma’s like yourself to transform your lives.

I have always been intrigued with the mind, body and spirit of life and I truly feel that I have found my purpose as I share my knowledge, experience and passion with you. This is not the traditional way to practice as a physiotherapist but I am excited and proud to be doing it this way.

Welcome, may you find what you are seeking and make the sustainable changes your body and mind desire. I am humbled you have chosen to work with me!

Health Coaching

Wellness Care for Moms

Health coaches teach you how to eat, move and think positively, to live well and avoid having to see the doctor. They don't just tell you what to do, they tell you how to do it and they coach you along every step.

A health coach is your personal guide to taking care of yourself. They are your leader, your mentor, your accountability partner and your inspiration so you treat your body and mind well every single day. They are your personal cheering squad so you can make the decisions day in and day out that will build healthy habits and create a sustainable lifestyle.

A health coach will work with you to achieve your wellness goals by addressing all the facets of health - eating, relationships, exercise, career and spirituality. You are not just an injury, an illness or a diagnosis, you are a whole being that works best when every aspect of your life is taken into account. A health coach will help you become healthier and happier in all areas of your life.

I am excited to be your health coach. I have a wide range of experience and a wealth of knowledge and energy to share. I am able to meet with you over the phone, on skype or in an online group to get you focused and to give you the support you need to live the life you truly want. You have the ability to choose how you want to live. Knowing that can change your life.

Jaclyn Pruett Ung
My name is Jaclyn, I'm a mom to two girls (6 & 10), wife, personal trainer and nutritionist.  I get how hard it is to find time not only to workout but to eat healthy.  It's hard to juggle all the responsibilities that us moms have.  But when you take time for yourself you're a better mom, wife, friend, co-worker and all around happier person!

I've struggled with body image most of my life.  I always felt if I just could lose the last 10 pounds I would finally feel better about myself.  What I discovered once I started eating healthier and exercising regularly is that I feel most confident and beautiful when I am doing things to make myself stronger and healthier.  I love to run, do Crossfit and hot yoga, I love how strong and happy they make me feel.

Running is my “me time”, I get away for half an hour or an hour, I can clear my head and think and just focus on moving my body.  I love to trail run and run OCRs (Obstacle Course Races), they make me feel alive and push me to go beyond what I think I can do.  Living in Canada I’ve learned to embrace running in the winter and surprisingly enough I actually enjoy it!  I try to blog regularly about running, nutrition, training and other tidbits of useful info.

Jess Lucana
My name is Jess, the creator behind Something 30 Fitness. I am a fitness enthusiast turned Blogger and Online Fitness Coach who fell in love with Running about 4 years ago. I share tips/motivation/inspiration on Fitness, Running, Eating better to any ladies seeking to make that part of their lifestyle and meanwhile balancing Momlife! 

As a Coach I run accountability groups to help build community and accountability online to meet your goals.  I understand how complicated and messy it can get because that’s the story of my life! Ha! Regardless of the complications I am constantly working towards improvement and self reflection to keep growing as a Woman, Career woman, Wife and Mother. 

When I was younger I always struggled with self confidence and believing in myself. Exercising was part of something I always did but it mainly was to sastified my obsession to keep a certain number in the scale. When turning 30, I'd gained some weight and unhappy with career/life and family illness made me realized life is too short to spend it unhappy. So 4 years ago during the Fall time I began to Run on my own despite having no experience in running long distance. When I succeeded to complete my first race it left me empowered and stronger than ever to put my fears aside to do anything I set my mind into. Since then I’ve ran several running events, maintained a fit pregnancy while working out from home and now at postpartum been able to tackle motherhood and all aspects of my life with the sense that things will always be ok.

Yvonne Gutierrez
Growing up a tall-uncoordinated girl .. I was never, NEVER, picked to be a part of a team. I tried out for everything – volleyball, basketball {hello .. I did say tall}, softball and cheerleading – not even sure what I was thinking there (remember “tall-uncoordinated”) and wasn’t selected for a single one. The only thing I could join was band {tallest trombone player in the marching line-up}, ha, because I couldn’t be turned down! In my head – I am not an athlete!

I sit here now, in the corner of my comfy couch, running feet up .. a “twenty-two year wife”, mother of two  teens & a 4-legged pup, a vegetarian part-time vegan foodie and a dedicated running road & trail {race} fan … and some may even say now an athlete. Somewhere in my later third decade, I decided to really run full force and haven’t stopped, only sped up! I have not only logged in thousands of miles, but have made some really great friends, my mother runners, along the way who have inspired me and quite honestly push me to be the best version of me. Over the last few years I've somehow become an ultra runner completing three ultra races, including a 50 miler. This is so far from "not an athlete" - and truth be told sometimes I feel like a running imposter. Today (this second at least) I can say I am an athlete ... tall, uncoordinated and always ready for an adventure.
