Equip Oudoors

About the Program

Research shows that outdoor activity can boost your energy, improve your mental focus, reduce pain and enhances creativity. The benefits of the outdoors are seemingly endless.  Aside from the unmatched beauty that is found in nature, the health advantages are plentiful.

Brittanie Williamson leads our Equip Outdoors programming.  Britt’s impressive experience and extensive knowledge of nature adds immeasurable value to our participants. 

In 2017, Britt set off on a 5-month adventure of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650-mile trail, from Mexico to Canada. It was the greatest experience of her life. In 2017, she and a friend, became the first American women to thru hike the Via Dinarica trail, an 800-mile trail that goes from Slovenia to Albania, crossing through Croatia, Bosnia, and Montenegro, following the Dinaric Alps. After that, Brittanie headed to France and completed the Camino de Santiago by hiking across Spain to the ocean.

Currently a trainer at CrossFit Novato and a surf instructor for Marin Outdoor Academy, Brittanie looks to continue sharing her love for the outdoors through her work. Brittanie has a BA degree in Exercise Science, is CF Level 1 certified, CPR certified, and Wilderness First Aid Certified.

Equip Outdoors Classes

There are no classes currently scheduled. Please check back for updates.


Brittanie recently took a group of teen girls out to beautiful Mt. Tamalpais to help them learn to connect with themselves, with nature and with each other. They went hiking, surfing and participated in mindulness practices during the overnight camping trip. It was a huge success and we hope to add more events like this to our 2020 calendar.  Check out some photos from their adventures. And keep an eye out for new adult and family outdoor experiences in the future.

We believe these activities should be accessible to all. Please keep in mind that scholarships are available when needed.If you have questions about our mission or want to learn more about our programs, feel free to contact Brittanie Williamson: britt@equipsports.org
