Aria Zoner: Hiker, Health Counselor, Nutrition Coach, Trailblazer | The Hiker Podcast Episode 17

This week Andy talks with Hiker, Health Counselor, Nutrition Coach, & Trailblazer Aria Zoner.

Aria Zoner is a dually-certified Health Counselor & Nutrition Coach, however, his goal in attaining these certifications wasn't to run a practice with clients, it was to sustain his own health & wellbeing during long-distance adventures.

Zoner has completed the Pacific Crest, Arizona, Colorado, and many other long-distance trails and has even created a few original routes which he's published guidebooks for. The Hot Springs Trail and The Siskiyou Peaks Trail are both National Trail proposals, meaning they were published to be used as templates to create new trails for the National System, but are not currently designated. Should people become excited about these causes, Zoner plans to continue his efforts; however, he's also said in the past, "these trails began as personal journeys, and if they end that way, I'm okay with that." That said, Zoner invites you to explore his trails and more importantly, to "view your adventures as opportunities to invest in your health."

Zoner's passion for health and adventure extends well beyond the trail. On his website Whole Food Hiker (https://www.wholefoodhiker.com) you'll find info and guidebooks for his trails, tips on trail-specific nutrition, plus insights on how to maintain optimal health during long-distance hikes. You can also learn more about his National Trail proposals and his approach to nutrition on Instagram at Aria Zoner. While you're there, share your thoughts on this episode using #wholefoodhiker.

Each week new hiker Andy Neal, takes you along on the trail, reviewing gear, exploring hiking trends and most importantly talking with voices in the outdoor and hiking community finding stories of how hiking has inspired them to grow, create, and better the world and environment around them. A show for those first starting out on the trail and for experienced thru-hikers!
