She Eats Seafood

Stewart likes to eat a seafood-rich diet. She also has a partnership with the brand Premiere Catch. Stewart talked about her love of seafood in an interview on Premiere Catch's website. "After my first achilles surgery, I started to eat more seafood and less meat and my body changed in a good way and I also felt more lean."


She Plays Basketball

Stewart shared her fitness secrets in an interview on the Red Bull website. Naturally, playing basketball helps her stay in shape. "I don't really know any other speed than basketball. I've just been playing it forever. It's a stop-and-go game. You can be running up and down for a while, then stop, then you have to go again. We don't do much conditioning work during the season, because we're playing almost three games each week."


She's Consistent


When Stewart isn't playing basketball, she's training for the season. She tells Red Bull that she works out consistently. "But during the preseason we do some sprints on the court, and riding the Airdyne bike, which really sucks—whether you're in shape or not, you're dying on that thing. And a lot of different cardio machines and kinds of cardio exercises. And just playing—nothing compares to it."


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Stewart shared her favorite workouts in her Red Bull interview. She says that she does a variety of things to stay in shape. "I need to make sure that my body is ready and that means getting in the weight room. I just work everything—upper and lower body. I also do Pilates to make sure that my core is strong. When I'm on the court, I'm using everything, so I want to make sure that my whole body is ready to go."


She Recovers

Stewart makes sure to recover from injuries. She shared her process with Red Bull. "My muscles get really tight, so I'll get them worked on before and after practice. I like going in the steam room and the hot tub; that makes my body feel good on the day after games. And doing yoga and really all the recovery things—the foam rolling, muscle flossing, the list goes on and on. I'll go in the hot tub before practice and the cold tub after. The cold tub helps get the lactic acid and everything out of your legs. I try to make sure that I'm doing everything I can to keep my body feeling good. I want to stay ahead of letting my body break down, which allows injuries to happen."
