From Fatigue to 5km

What is really holding you back from lacing up those running shoes?

Running offers a world of adventure, confidence building and self-discovery, and abundant energy.  If you are too tired, too overwhelmed, or too afraid to fail, and have no idea how you can fit running into your schedule? You do not have to manage this process alone.

What you need is a highly individualized health program that supports your goals and is more than just a map of your kilometres. Dr. Tanner’s methodology is different from the average couch to 5k running program.

Group programs and apps can be fantastic tools to get you motivated and build your endurance and fitness.  But there is one thing they are missing that we all need to accomplish our goals – Our Health.

Dr. Tanner’s methodology will bring your health to a place where you are Stronger Inside so you can run free of pain and avoid burnout.

From Fatigue to 5km is a FOUNDATIONAL PROGAM for new runners. 

I am Dr. Tanner and I am your movement motivator.  I will be your professional guide and help you move from fatigue to 5KM.  Through my experience as a Naturopathic Doctor, marathon athlete and mom of 3, I understand what it feels like to be totally overwhelmed by scheduling, frustrated by injury and fatigued from running my own business and balancing my busy family.

Based on my 14 years of experience in the industry. I have created the ideal protocol for those suffering from exhaustion and overwhelm who are looking improve their energy levels, feel great and achieve their running goals.

Studies show that those who have support and accountability systems in place are more likely to finish what they start. Most running programs only focus on the running, my program is different because it focuses on the health factors you need put in place to breakdown the obstacles that are holding you back from lacing up those running shoes and getting out the door.

With your health in place, you can accomplish amazing things!

Here is a sneak peek into our protocol:

Foundational Support

Nutrition, sleep and building your training and recovery schedule are the key to the success of anyone beginning a new training program.

My program will address the top 4 reasons why most online programs fail:

  1. The nutritional programming is generic and does not take into account your health history, health status or health needs. Our program will deliver a meal plan and supplement protocol that is unique to you.
  2. They do not address the quality of your sleep. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am uniquely suited to address this essential and often overlooked training requirement.
  3. They do not include a plan for “recovery”. Most online programs will have you overtraining and under-performing, a recipe for more fatigue and exhaustion. As a mother, I can tell you my recovery plan has been the key to success for myself and many other parents who want a consistent source of energy to have fun with their kids.
  4. Our plan adapts as you progress. Your nutritional requirements at the beginning of the program will not be the same as what is required when you are running 5 km on a regular basis.
Functional Testing

If you are tired, overwhelmed and completely frustrated by a medical system that does not understand that you have a problem even though your “lab work is normal” you are not alone.

Functional testing offers us the ability to identify the areas of your health that need support regardless of your diagnosis.

Our program will evaluate the following functional priorities for runners:

  • You stress response
  • Your digestive function
  • Your body composition

We may also test your thyroid, iron stores and markers of inflammation.

Additional testing including hormone metabolism is available for those who need it.

Mindset Coaching

My goal is to make you STRONGER INSIDE so you can crush your First 5k.  I truly feel free when I run and I freaking love it!  I have seen hundreds of people change their lives and you can too.  I am inspired by those brave enough to begin their transformation.

Your mindset matters.  You are setting examples and blazing the path for your children.  When we feel great, we can literally Run the world!

I’m ready to meet you. My goal is to support 50 women from fatigue to 5 km this spring. I want you to be one of them. My schedule is getting busy and your energy tank needs filling. So let’s book a complementary exploration call to see if the program is right for you.

Metabolic Detoxification Program

“There once was a time when I felt burnt out, exhausted and questioned what I was doing with the amazing life I had created.”

Metabolic overload can happen to anyone even if we have the best intentions. Ambition, love of life and an unstoppable work ethic can be the greatest gift. These gifts require a clear mind and abundant energy. My mission is to help you achieve them through the alignment of your health goals with your life goals.

Your health is an asset, not the price you are paying for your success. You are your greatest investment and you have the power to dramatically influence your performance.

Your body’s ability to burn fat, make energy and think brilliantly are all connected through your metabolism.  Metabolic flexibility depends on the optimal function of your liver and digestive tract.

 Ideal for anyone who:
  • Wants to shed the winter sluggishness.
  • Get energized and improve their mood focus and concentration.
  • Has had trouble losing weight. Especially those who have struggled with the ketogenic diet or intermittent fasting.
  • Is looking for a jump start to lasting lifestyle change.
  • Is tired of blood sugar crashes, moodiness, pain, and fatigue.
Clinically Trusted

This program has been designed by Dr. Erin Wiley and supported in her clinical practice for the past 11 years. The intention behind the metabolic detox is to provide short term intensive support to your liver, recover efficiencies in your metabolism and support optimal detoxification and elimination.

The program is generally 2-4 weeks long depending on your clinical assessment and comprised of a nutrient dense diet and supplementation program. The intention of this plan is to offer clarity to your nutrition choices. Maximizing nutrient density, while you work to remove stimulants and hormone-disrupting foods like alcohol and caffeine.

This plan can be flexible and with the support of our nutritionist can be modified to accommodate vegetarian, paleo and vegan diets. It is not an ideal plan for the ketogenic diet as the intention is to lower the triglyceride levels for a period of time allowing the liver to focus on recovery and lipid optimization. It is, however, often used as a liver preparation plan before initiation of a ketogenic diet.

Core Pillars:


Optimal sleep is essential to efficient metabolism. Your circadian rhythm influences the genes that turn on your metabolism. You will develop your sleep skills and learn to turn on this powerful resource.


Relaxation is extremely productive for detoxification and optimal metabolism. This is where you can engage your parasympathetic nervous system and get more internal re-set work done for your time and energy.


This program supports optimal bowel movements and elimination, which is essential for detoxification.


Movement is good for circulation, elimination, and metabolism. If you have been exercising before the plan most people can continue, however, we must ensure you are getting optimal recovery. Modifying the intensity of your exercise program may be required while you are going through the detoxification process. Rest assured that this is a short term jump-start to your metabolism that leads to improved access to energy and better exercise performance in just 2-4 weeks time.


A Bio Impedance analysis is completed at your initial assessment to determine your body composition, phase angle, and intracellular fluid percentage. These are the markers we intend to improve through the plan and are an indication of improved metabolic function.

Your blood pressure and waist circumference are also key performance indicators and markers of long term health promotion.

Many clients on our four-week plan additionally test their liver enzymes, cholesterol panel and HBAIC.

Appropriate individual testing will be recommended by Dr. Wiley.
