Looking in the face of a very busy 2016, DEFINE body & mind founder Henry Richardson and co-owner Erin O'Leary Stewart took a break from the treadmill, so to speak, to hold a holiday fete at the West University shop, shedding the fitness routine for a holiday happy hour.

In place of workout gear, guests dressed in holiday threads for the early evening of posing in the photo booth, singing along to the sounds of DJ M-Cue and entering drawings for DEFINE classes and gear.

They grazed through light bites and sipped holiday cocktails like Restore Apple Cider made from DEFINE foods cold-pressed juices.

The event was also a celebration of sorts of DEFINE's 2015 expansion with studios in Atlanta and Austin. In 2016, the firm expands to Katy and Lubbock, Denver and Boulder, Jacksonville and Dubai.

Joining the fete were Monsour Taghdisi, James Stewart, KK Ford, Jake Fitzpatrick, Billye Tezel, Katie Wiseman, Deborah Hall, Luis and Susie Cavazos, Ben Johnson, Brittany Lais Williams, and Mark Fowler.
