Adam Hortian paved the way for a career as a Personal Coach by first establishing himself as a successful long distance runner at the local, provincial, national and international levels. His career highlights include a 2nd place finish at the 2012 Olympic Trials at 10km and he has represented Canada internationally on 6 occasions. As an Ambassador for Skechers Performance Canada, Adam aims to spread the joy he has experienced as runner over the past 16 years.  Adam has achieved his certification through the NCCP and helps runners of all ages and abilities achieve their personal goals. Adam has coached several athletes to individual and team medals provincially as well as assisted them to reach the Youth Olympic Games in China.

Adam believes that when we get hold of something truly special, we all have an innate desire want to share it and make it last forever. For him, the knowledge gained through his mentors and personal coaches is exactly this. Over 16 years in the sport of distance running has given Adam exposure to the power running can have over one’s life and the incredible journey it can take an individual on. For our athletes, the primary outcomes of training with are that you will be challenged, you will be inspired and you will likely inspire others around you as you forge new relationships with the team. Ultimately, if you work hard and follow our program, you will succeed in achieving your goals!
