Meet The Healthy Hiker
Hi! I'm Alicia Filley, PT, MS


Ever dream of making an epic trek but worry you can't keep up with the group?

Think those achy knees would keep you from seeing the view from the top?

Tired of waiting at the bottom only to see your family's amazing pictures from the summit?


I developed The Healthy Hiker program because I saw people spend time and money preparing for their life's crowning adventure, only to be miserable on the trail or have to quit because they didn't prepare their bodies. 

I knew that with my experience as a physical therapist, I could help prevent hiking injuries, rather than treat them after the fact. 

Because I am an avid hiker myself, I understand the challenges and needs of hikers and backpackers. In The Healthy Hiker program, I teach you how to train for your next big hike, what to eat both on and off the trail, and how to choose the right equipment for your grand adventure. I use my knowledge of human performance and hiking experience to tailor a program to fit your needs and meet your goals. 


Check off that bucket list experience feeling confident and prepared so you can get the most out of your next trek.



Alicia knows what she's doing! She listens to my needs, and makes changes/gives advice on what is appropriate for me. She doesn't just give her clients a static program to follow. She tailors individual programs for each individual! She is not afraid to change the program as individual needs change.

Alicia evaluated and treated my son as a whole person - considering not just physical issues but mental, emotional and nutritional needs as well.  

Before I worked with Alicia  I felt burned out from making training adjustments that continued to result in the same injuries. Since working with Alicia, I've been motivated to continue training because I have been injury free with continued results.

Choosing Alicia was the right pick for me because she adapted very well to my lifestyle and physical abilities.  Its not easy to adapt to a trucker lifestyle and compound that with my club foot, I'm not easy to work with. 

After working with Alicia I feel a lot more confident about my upcoming adventure.
