Erin Stewart

With an extensive background in both cooking and fitness, Erin Stewart knows what it takes to fuel your body for optimum performance, and, as a mother of two, she understands the importance of nourishing your whole self,  to feel good, grounded, and strong.  

SAVOR. Erin is a trained chef and worked under "maverick nutritional theorist" Annemarie Colbin, Ph.D., founder of the Natural Gourmet Institute, as well as in the kitchen of New York City's famed raw food mecca Pure Food & Wine. Erin also created and operated a nationally distributed cookie and granola line called O’Cookies Wholesome Bites before moving to Houston, where she founded DEFINE foods. Through DEFINE, Erin has become widely recognized for her classes, workshops, recipes, and packaged meals that keep Houston nourished (and asking for seconds!). 
SWEAT. Trained as a professional dancer, Erin earned a BFA in dance performance and kinesiology, and worked with renowned choreographers Andy Blankenbeuhler, Max Stone, and Danny Buraczeski. She performed throughout the TriState area in productions including Mack and Mabel, Nine to Five and Waiting for the Moon. Erin's background in the movement arts, kinesiology, and dance led her to teaching, and after years of experience in Pilates, barre, dance, and fitness classes, Erin became one of New York City's top celebrity trainers and a favorite instructor at Physique 57. After relocating to Houston, Erin co-created, owned and operated and then franchised DEFINE body & mind, a top fitness studio with locations throughout the globe. 
Now with Erin O'Leary Stewart Savor + Sweat, through both her culinary nutrition and sustainable fitness classes, you can bring Erin's positive, insightful, and creative passion into your home. Each class taps into the healing power of food and movement to help you discover your balance and feel your best whole self.
