After retiring from an accomplished 36-year career with the Federal Government, Mary Luciani went back to school and graduated with honours from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. She is also a seasoned runner who has completed 11 marathons, countless half marathons and other races. She has always been passionate about running, donating her time and experience to inspire and coach those interested in running, from novices in Learn to Run Clinics to Marathoners.
Coupled with her long-standing passion for running, Mary also has an affection for holistic health and can now compliment her running experience by recommending organic, nutritious alternatives to the wide array of sugar-laden, commercially manufactured performance boosters. Mary will create meals plans in the appropriate CHO:PRO:FAT ratios to meet your goals and advise on healthier, holistic alternatives for all your athletic needs, from day to day nutrition to fuelling for different types of runs to nutritional-recovery to injury-prevention.
For those interested in a healthier lifestyle, Mary can help achieve goals of healthy weight loss, improved digestion and increased energy leading to a healthier, active lifestyle.
Mary is passionate about “giving back”. She presents complimentary “Guest Speaker” sports-nutrition talks at various Running Room Clinics, volunteers nutritional services with the After Care Program by Passion2bfree, a program that makes it possible for those suffering from addiction to rebuild their lives. The Program teaches the coping strategies and life skills necessary to live an addiction-free life.
And finally, Mary also volunteers with an organization called Sacred Journey Home that will be helping people deal with death in a loving, peaceful and compassionate manner.
