Who We Are
Owners Dianna Dahlgren and Taylor Leigh have over 16 years of friendship under their belt. Growing up, they both struggled with body image and the constant weight fluctuation their body types naturally have. Both laughing that they could gain weight just looking at ice cream. As they matured, they continued their super tight relationship even as their lifestyles became increasingly different. Dianna becoming a well known name in the super cross and fitness industry and Taylor becoming a mother of 3. Over the course of the next few years Dianna had fallen prey to the competing industries guidelines of what her figure needed to be, and struggled with different eating disorders to achieve her new look. While Taylor was battling an obsessive calorie counting diet that left her tired, moody, and unhealthy. Binge eat, starve, repeat. No balance. Their passions were clear, health and fitness were something they craved, But the best way to get there? They had no idea.
Over time something did become apparent, the standard image of health and fitness was one size fits all.
The beautiful girl with rock hard abs, no cellulite, no stretch marks.
They were chasing something that didn’t exist and well, that aint Salty Honey. Salty Honey is built on messy buns and imperfections. Taylor and Dianna refuse to give in to societies version of who should be in fitness apparel. They want to advertise real women from all walks of life with all different body types. They say that fitness isn't something that can be defined into one mold. Its every woman. The woman who takes walks around the block because that's the start of their journey, the woman who feels too intimidated by the weights so she runs on the treadmill, the woman who works out in home because the kids, the woman who does yoga, the woman who lifts heavy, and the woman who has never done a work out in her life but desperately wants a more active lifestyle. Salty Honey is every woman. We vow to stay photoshop free and show every beautiful imperfection. Real, raw, and authentic. Oh, and totally adorable!
