Introduction to the RunMotion Coach team

The idea of RunMotion Coach was born in 2016 during a run between brothers Romain and Guillaume ADAM, high-level runners. They shared the observation that more and more of their acquaintances were starting to run and all needed advice to progress and achieve their goals. They brought together a team around RunMotion Coach to democratize training for everyone, regardless of their level and goals.

The RunMotion Coach team now consists of about ten people who are at your service!

The Founders

The founders of RunMotion sought excellence in their practice of running and are now driven by the transmission of their experience, while maintaining a high level of practice.

Guillaume Adam

Guillaume’s athletic journey led him to become a member of the French athletics team in the 1500 meters from 2013 to 2016. Simultaneously, he excelled academically as an engineer at INSA Lyon and contributed to research projects on running performance prediction at MIT in Boston. Guillaume is also a certified coach with a professional sports educator card (DEUG STAPS). His expertise and experience are reflected in his book Ma bible du running, du trail et du marathon published by Leduc Editions.

Guillaume is the Chief Technical Officer of RunMotion Coach and answers our users when they have questions or requests about their training plan.

His next challenge is to better his marathon record, following his historic finish as the first Frenchman in the 2019 New York City Marathon, all while savoring each step.

His main records – 1500m: 3 ’38, 3000m : 7′ 57, 10km: 29 ’31, Half-Marathon: 1h08, Marathon 2h23.

Romain Adam

Running often allowed Romain to recharge his batteries after long, tiring days. An expert in the startup world, Romain led a startup accelerator and interacted with people from all walks of life. He understands better than anyone the needs and expectations of runners.

A jack-of-all-trades, he enjoys varying his pleasures, between marathons and trails.

Romain is in charge of B2B development of RunMotion with race organizers and companies.

His goals in 2023: Improve his personal record in marathon (succeeded in Barcelona in March 2023 in 2h34) and finisher of the UTMB (succeeded in 29h24 – 144th place).

His main records – 1000m: 2 ’27, 10km: 31′ 34, half marathon 1h12, marathon 2h34.

Paul Waroquier

A complete runner and fine strategist, Paul is among the best European middle-distance athletes in the Master category (over 40 years old). Passionate about sports psychology, he wrote a book titled “L’art de gagner.” A true mentor, Paul has coached many national-level athletes and less experienced runners.

His most important records – 3000m: 8’48, 3000m Steeple: 9’27, 10km: 32’37

The RunMotion Team: at your service 

The RunMotion Team Coach has expanded: Paul-Louis, Alanis, Matteo, Jules, Simon and Mailis, all passionate about running and their job: IT development, communication, marketing, graphics.

Many team members participate in 10km races, marathon, trail or triathlon (but you don’t have to run to be part of the team 😉)

RunMotion Coach is 100% developed in France, in the Alps. The RunMotion Coach team is located near Chambéry, an ideal place for running on flat terrain or in the mountains!

Expert Advice in RunMotion

In addition to the work of the entire RunMotion team, we have called on experts in their field to add additional content to the foot race training plan.

To build the physical preparation programs, we called on Julien Coudert, a sports-specialized physiotherapist, marathon runner (2h29 in 2022), ultra-trailer (15th in the CCC 2013), and triathlete. Julien understands the needs and specifics of road running, as well as trail running, and the rehabilitation of recreational runners. He accompanied Romain, co-founder of RunMotion, following his injury at the UTMB 2022, allowing him to finish the UTMB in 29 hours in 2023.

For the mental preparation programs, we called on Annette Sergent, world cross-country champion and certified sophrologist. Annette has accompanied many athletes towards reaching their potential, including Guillaume, co-founder of RunMotion, for a visualization session two days before becoming the French 3000m champion in 2016!

For nutrition content, we called on Benoit Nave, a nutritionist for the organic brand Baouw and coach of Xavier Thévenard, three-time winner of the UTMB. Benoit likes to give advice on eating healthily and optimizing performance in endurance sports.

For the “Quit Smoking” content, we called on Cécile Bertin, a journalist and author of numerous books on running, trail running, sports travel, and “Les cahiers du Dr Good. Oui, je peux arrêter de fumer!”
