Watch this first!

Like you, I was tired of dreaming about my next adventure and I was ready to take the next step.

But I wasn't sure if my body was ready to THRIVE.

Learn how the Adventure Ready course can save you years of struggle and thousands of dollars in your quest for health... and help you take the adventure you’ve been dreaming about.


What if you knew how to put the right health habits on autopilot so that…

...you were ready to thrive (and not just survive) on your next outdoor adventure

...you had the endurance for a marathon day at work or on the trail

...you woke up with the energy to make it through a busy day at the office or a full day in the mountains

...you knew the right foods for YOUR body to naturally maintain a healthy weight, and NEVER had to fight cravings, restrict, or follow another diet plan again

...you had an effective & efficient personalized training program

...you recovered faster

...you mastered the mindset that makes goal achievement nearly guaranteed

...you felt like yourself again

...you could experience the beautiful feeling of being outside, being free, and fulfilling your dreams!

Maybe you…

  • have your eye on a certain adventure, but your health is not where you want it to be, and year after year slips by without your dream adventure becoming a reality
  • are tired of watching other adventurers take epic trips while you sit on the sidelines
  • have one or more chronic illnesses and feel like your dream is out of reach
  • already ‘eat clean’, exercise regularly, and have tried every ‘biohack’ out there, but still feel fatigued and see the weight creeping on (especially in the off-season)
  • struggle with strong cravings, especially for sugar, and you don’t know how to find FOOD FREEDOM and a sustainable way to eat
  • feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting health advice out there and you wonder if you’re just not meant to have the adventurous life you desire

Three years ago, I was sidelined from the adventurous life I love. I was dealing with adrenal fatigue, debilitating autoimmune symptoms, creeping weight gain (even though I was eating ‘clean’ and staying active). I had messed up digestion, was missing periods, and felt completely frustrated and overwhelmed with the constant stream of endless, ever-changing nutrition advice.

Now I wake up with the energy to run my business, nurture relationships, and get out for soul-satisfying outdoor adventures. I have healthy hormones and digestion, and the confidence that I know exactly how to eat, exercise, sleep, etc. to have the health I need to do the things I love (without restrictive diets or harsh workouts).

Since recovering my health, I’ve gotten back into nature and thru-hiked the Colorado Trail, the Wind River High Route, and the Oregon Desert Trail. And currently, I’m planning a Continental Divide Trail thru-hike.

It took A LOT of education, time, money, and experimentation, as well as hours of client work, but I’ve been able to pull out the common threads from my experience and that of my clients. I identified the key strategies that moved the needle the most for the greatest number of people.

"I’m 62 years old and have been focused on improving my cycling and all around health. Over the previous year, I had kept up my activity level but started neglecting my nutrition, stress and sleep regimen. I gained 20 pounds and started feeling sluggish and looked for a reasonable approach toward developing a sustainable program of health.

The best thing I did was schedule a complimentary call with Katie and after a few minutes I knew I had found my nutrition coach. Katie is sincere and seems to genuinely care about my journey. While it’s only been three weeks, I started the elimination program, and followed Katie’s guidance related to supplements, sleep, stress and other lifestyle changes that have been easy to incorporate into my busy schedule. So far, I’ve lost 15 pounds, sleep better, feel great and no longer suffer from chronic muscle spasms.

Katie has been a pleasure to work with. I’m hooked!!"

-Tom B., Head of HR


Better energy, improved endurance, faster recovery, and naturally maintaining a healthy weight ARE POSSIBLE for YOU…

...without restrictive diets

...without wasting a lot of money

...without spending hours working out

...without having to research the latest nutrition studies

... even if you’ve tried everything before!

You just need the right strategies.

What if you could have a step by step strategy that showed you exactly how to create the health you desire WITHOUT all of the wasted time, effort, and tactics you don’t need?

Well, now you can :)

I've personally learned a ton and completely changed my diet by following her guidelines and advice. My energy levels and digestion capacity have done a complete 180 throughout the last 10 months of transitioning away from all the crap food that I used to love so much.

-John (Bigfoot) Carr, IT Specialist

"I got off the CDT in 2015 thinking I could maintain my weight. After ballooning to 245 pounds I asked Katie for help. I shed 20 and found a diet that works. My goal was to get back to a good weight and find out what nutritionally would sustain a good weight while being satisfied. I heard Katie on the trail show and was convinced she knew what to do. Since working with Katie, I’ve lost weight, I’m feeling better, and I have a sustainable diet. She shows a lot of attention to her clients and good follow through.”

- Pat (AXYL) Dixon


You absolutely could find a diet plan, create a training plan, and figure out your health obstacles on your own, but have you?

What Adventure Ready does is take everything I learned in years of study and self-experimentation and provides you with a systematic approach and the support you need to reach your goals faster and with less expense.

Katie Gerber

Hi! I’m Katie, certified nutrition coach, long distance hiker with 5000+ miles, Vice President of the American Long Distance Hiking Assoc.-West, online course creator, and founder of KatieGerber.com.

In the last 3 years, I went FROM overwhelming adrenal fatigue, debilitating autoimmune symptoms, creeping weight gain, digestive issues, missing periods, and complete frustration over my health issues TO…

Waking up energized, with healthy hormones and digestion, and the confidence that I have the health I need to do the things I love. Since that time, I've thru-hiked the Colorado Trail, the Wind River High Route, the Oregon Desert Trail, and I’m currently planning a Continental Divide Trail thru-hike.

I’ve turned my strategies into a step-by-step system in the self-paced online course “Adventure Ready”. I want to save you the time, money, and struggle I went through. I understand how frustrating it is to feel overwhelmed by all the health information out there, to feel like you’ve tried everything to get better (and seen no results), and most importantly, to not be able to be outside in the places you love doing the activities you love and living a fulfilled life.

Time spent immersed in the wilderness can be life-changing and it’s so much more enjoyable when you have the health to THRIVE out there.

I've been featured in...

As an additional perk, all content in the movement module was created by ACE certified personal trainer Heather "Anish" Anderson.

Heather became the first female Calendar Year Triple Crowner when she hiked the Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide Trails in one March-November season in 2018. She also holds several overall self-supported Fastest Known Times (FKTs), including the Pacific Crest Trail and Arizona Trail. She has hiked nearly 30,000 miles since 2003 including 13 thru-hikes.

I'm thrilled to have partnered with Heather to have her expertise available to students via the movement module. This includes the same process she uses when working with individual clients preparing for long distance hikes.


Adventure Ready is a self-paced, 100% online program with the road map to take you from tired, out of shape, frustrated, and dreaming of maybe one day completing that long hike….To:

  • Feeling CONFIDENT that your body is ready for adventure
  • Eating the right food for YOUR body
  • Jumping out of bed with energy
  • Experiencing FULL BODY reduced inflammation
  • Mastering your mindset and stressing less so you never sabotage your health goals again

Haven’t your dreams waited long enough??

"Having Salty as a hiking partner, I was fortunate enough to absorb and put into practice a lot of her health and nutrition advice. My diet was cleaner on the ODT than any other hike I've completed and we pushed hard on that hike. I had better energy and endurance, and my digestion improved too!"

-Whitney (Allgood) LaRuffa, President of the American Long Distance Hiking Assoc.-West

“I am feeling much better, and have been appreciating having more options for meals. I am very glad I got to meet with Katie and have found your advice really helpful!”

-Bonnie Gager

-Will G.

"I was already feeling unhappy about how I was treating myself, but didn't know what to do about it, because I'd tried this, that and the other thing before. It has been good to have someone to check in with, who has new ideas. I just get so overwhelmed that creativity and thinking outside the box is difficult. Katie has a clear vision of what path to take, and guidelines to follow by."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own, and including any updates to the material!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
If you are unhappy with your results within 30 days of purchasing the Adventure Ready course, we'll refund you 100% of your money! All that we ask is that you show us proof that you actually did the work. (Completed worksheets and discussion prompts are usually enough).
I’m not planning to thru-hike. Is this course still for me?
Yes! The concepts in this course apply to ANYONE who dreams of optimizing their health. However, my community tends to be backpackers, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts (all of which is what I am), so this is primarily who I speak to :)
I’m already pretty healthy. I eat clean and exercise. Will I still benefit from this course?
Absolutely! The beauty of this course is that no matter where you’re starting from, this course meets you where you are. By focusing on the fundamentals, as this program does, you experience the benefits of dialing in your diet, gut, exercise, sleep, and stress. Whether you’re just beginning your journey along the path of health or you’re a well-versed veteran, the tactics and techniques will up-level your current health so you have more energy, endurance, resiliency, and confidence for your upcoming adventures!
How do I know this course will give me results? I’ve tried so many other approaches before.
I understand it’s easy to be uncertain, especially when you’ve tried other programs before. This course is based off of what has worked for myself and my clients. Many approaches give you one path, which may or may not work for you. This approach teaches you how to personalize your health habits so you can do what works for YOUR body and skip the rest. This course guides you step by step, and provides community support and accountability, which is often a catalyst for transformation. I’ve put in thousands of hours of study and earned certifications and tested these methods. I’ve seen them work, over and over again. If you put in the work and follow the process, you will experience results.
I don’t have access to a gym. Can I still complete this program?
Yep. You don’t need to complete workouts at the gym to get results from this program.
I don’t like to cook. Will I be able to benefit from this program?
Definitely! The food recommendations included in the course work with all levels of culinary expertise, from beginner to advanced. The course outlines eating guidelines and you customize it to your lifestyle based on how much time you have, your taste preferences, and your skill level.
I’ve tried other diet programs before. How is this different?
Adventure Ready is not a diet program. It’s a comprehensive systematic approach to upgrading the foundations of your health including diet, gut health, your movement routine, your sleep, your stress, and your mindset. It’s not a one size fits all prescription. This course teaches you how to personalize these pieces for YOUR body and YOUR life, so that wellness is sustainable and it becomes a way of life rather than a program that gives you quick results and then you’re back where you started 6 months later.
Is this worth the money?
I may be biased, but I think so ;) The intention of this course is to help you reach your goals faster, with less expense, so you can experience a better quality of life and take the adventures you desire. Consider the following: Your Money: Working with a nutritionist or health coach one on one for 6 weeks would cost anywhere from $600-$1500. This course can save you thousands in doctor’s bills, books, trainers, and testing. Plus, you have lifetime access to the course, including any updates to the material as nutrition science evolves and/or I find additional techniques. You can take the course again and again, year after year, or anytime you find your health has slipped. Your Time: This course provides a proven approach that can save you years of spinning your wheels. Instead of wasting that time in frustration, you could be using that time to plan your next trip and spend more time outside. When you look at the time and money you’re saving through this course vs. learning all these techniques on your own, it’s really a no-brainer. Your Quality of Life: What is the value of health? Of feeling vibrant and alive? Of taking the adventure of your dream? Of feeling free and strong and able to roam in the wilderness? It’s priceless.
What if I go on vacation and I can't keep up with the material?
No problem! You have lifetime access to the material, so you can go at your own pace.

This course is not open for enrollment.
