Our Running Community

Running Moms is a growing online community of moms, or moms to be, who run, used to run or want to start running. It has surprised me how powerful this online community has become. As moms with full lives it is hard to get out and commit to something for ourselves.

We use this online platform to stay connected and feel part of a community even though it is so hard to physically get out. We train together here, we run on our own schedule and we use the group to meet others in our area and be inspired. We celebrate weddings, babies, running successes, struggles and injuries together right here.

We love talking about running, workouts, recipes, our kids, inspiring each other to choose the healthier option and challenging one another to be the best role models we can for our kids, even when it is hard.

This community is for YOU so please join and make yourself comfortable. Get quick answers to your running and fitness questions, get free workouts you can do at home, view our simple family friendly recipes and nutritious snacks & learn how to make eating and exercise decisions that won’t leave you feeling depressed, deprived or drained of energy.

Most importantly, we give loads of love, support and accountability.

And I know it is scary to start. We all started out like that. Do you relate to any of these?

  • You are scared to get out there and start.
  • You are embarrassed to be seen out doors.
  • You are afraid you are too slow to join a group.
  • You have hated running in the past.
  • You have tried and failed in the past.
  • You are too busy.
  • You have NO time with kids...and the list goes on.

This community is for you if you have ever felt:

  • overwhelmed by all the things you “should” be doing as a mom
  • frustrated by all the information out there on food and exercise and unable to do anything with it
  • frustrated because despite your best efforts you are unable to lose weight (and keep it off)
  • Angry because you let your body and health slide while you tend to everyone else’s needs and wants and now you have to struggle so hard to get your body and fitness back on track
  • like there is just not enough time in the day to fit in exercise, training or preparing so you always have healthy snacks on hand for you and your family
  • tired, lethargic, unmotivated, anxious, with very little positive energy and intense cravings you cannot control
  • just not like yourself since having kids, lonely and like your world is always full of CRAZY with no breaks or space to take some quiet time to focus on YOU
  • like you WANT TO BE A RUNNER

Or maybe you just want easy to understand real food, real fitness and sustainable weight loss guidance from an accredited and trusted fitness professional and MOM who understands YOU and has YOUR best interest and health in mind.

This program is NOT for you if:

  • you are looking for a quick fix to your weight, fitness level or unhappiness.
  • you make excuses, blame everyone else and/or will not take personal responsibility for your own health, life and happiness.
  • you want to sign up for a program, pay your money, and then go back to your tired excuses as to why you can’t work out or do things differently
  • you are not willing to give up the limited belief that you are not good enough, pretty enough, or worthy unless you are a size 2

Here’s How Running Moms Coaches You To Achieve Your Ideal Body & Best Health

I will empower you to believe you deserve this. I will inspire you to look, feel and perform your best, because being a mom is a high performing sport. You need to sustain that motivation and energy and I will lead you through a common sense approach to getting fit and healthy through basic nutrition, mindset training, moving your body and a support network. I provide real, at home, appropriate workouts and plans that are achievable for you. I keep it simple and guide you through mindful, healthy, basic daily habits that have the power to change your life in the long term.

Do more of the things you love. Be inspired. Get out there. Enjoy your life.

We keep it light, simple and add some much needed humour around the heavy topics of parenting, weight, health, self-esteem and happiness.

The best part of the Running Moms is that we all share our best tips, tricks, recipes, meal plans, success stories and programs that we all use ourselves in our homes and with our families.

Run with Us

This is a Running program, but also a place to connect, learn and change. I want to inspire you to look at your life as it is today and decide if you are really happy and satisfied. We will use running as a tool to find you space to re-connect with yourself and your passions in life. As moms we are constantly doing everything for everyone else. I want you to find clarity as you look at where you are, what you want and what changes you may need to make. I want you to find happiness in this crazy life in the simple things you can do everyday with a more conscious effort.

It is not about being perfect or doing what everyone else is doing, it is about understanding what YOU want, what YOU need and how YOU are going to get there. Having kids is hard and you should not have to lose everything that is YOU in the process.

So yes, I will teach you about running and fitness and nutrition but I will also lead you through some serious reflection and encourage you to take the time for yourself you need and deserve to work on you. Everyone needs you. They all need you at your best. What is your best? How do you find it and then how do you get there? Your journey begins here.

  • You will feel part of a team.
  • You will make running friends in far off places.
  • You will be kept accountable so you go for your runs.
  • You will make it to 5k and beyond.
  • You will feel strong and confident.

Health Coaching

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.

Welcome to Running Moms Meet Me

I am Carey Adam, Physiotherapist, Health Coach, mamma, runner and founder of Running Moms. 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 Running Moms. 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 Running Moms 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 Running Moms.

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 change and that we can choose how we want to live this life day to day.

I am compassionate about supporting women, teaching our children the basics of nutrition and movement and about our natural environment.

I am 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 come home to 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!
