“If you can’t love your body AND the food you eat, then what’s the point?”
Erin Blevins is the founder of shutupEAT and shutupWORK. Her humble beginning into food started in her youth as a reoccurring assistant to her highly decorated-chef father. She found a natural way to blend her love of outdoor sports, training, and bikini wearing with baking, cooking, and enjoying delicious meals – by mastering techniques related to training and nutrition. Her skill as a personal chef and nutritional ninja have been used at the highest level, including the transformation of actor, Henry Cavill into Superman for the wildly anticipated blockbuster: Justice League.
Her organic approach to coaching others into a positive self-image is through a special blend of hard physical training, intuitive tasty eating, and a wholesome love of adventure. Erin resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she works as a coach, chef, and self-proclaimed bikini enthusiast.

Maggie has a Chemistry and Law Degree from the University of Auckland, in New Zealand. Despite her academic leanings she has always fostered a love of fitness and well-being. Her passion intensified when she began CrossFit several years ago, which helped her truly appreciate what her body could do. Her love of learning and her passion for fitness led her to a path of becoming the best version of herself; by learning how food can impact health, performance, and energy. As her knowledge increased, she began to transform her body; not only getting leaner but feeling amazing while doing so. This sparked a burning desire to not only learn more but to also share with others what has become a lifelong pursuit. Maggie believes in nutrition as a lifestyle, a synergistic balance between nutrient intake and enjoying the foods she loves (cheesecake!). Her education gives a deep knowledge-base in which to apply nutrition and her own journey has highlighted that a little passion and a lot of fun can pave the way to a healthy and happy life.
