At the start of a new year, many women naturally think about implementing new practices for physical and spiritual health.

New year, new you, new goals. The first week or two of the New Year is always filled with hopefulness. The Christmas cheer is still lingering and the New Year brings a sense of fresh start with it.

And within a few weeks, we realize that change is actually really REALLY hard.
I am so very excited to introduce you to my beautiful friend, Hayley Bobay, wife to Cody and mom to Ty and Parker. Hayley has been involved in the fitness world for many years and in several different ways; creating in her a passion to encourage women toward a healthy lifestyle – not for aesthetic reasons, but to serve God fully out of a healthy mind, heart and body.
