Everyday Paleo

It doesn't get any easier than this, gang - baked chicken. Prep time = 10:00. Bake time = 1 hour. Jeff turned me on to this recipe via "Everyday Paleo" a fantastic Paleo eating web resource:

For me to suggest a recipe it has to fit within the PR Fitness nutritional philosophy, and it also has to be simple, fast, and few ingredients, otherwise most people won't use it (myself include).

In this case you simply purchase a whole chicken (organic/free-range preferred), wash it and dry it (inside and out) and lightly sprinkle with sea salt (inside and out). Place it in a baking dish and put it in a 450 degree oven for 1 hour. Feel free to get creative with the seasoning, I added a little "Old Bay", but just sea salt alone makes for a fantastic dish!

While I didn't mess around with "presentation" for the photo - it turned out perfect - golden brown, super moist and tender; way better, way cheaper, and way more healthful than anything I could have purchased at a restaurant.

Leftovers make for a healthful version of chicken salad. Oh, and don't be freaked out about "dark meat", especially if your chicken is organic/free range - the whole "dark meat is bad for you" thing is a myth. Yes, it is higher in calories, so you have to watch that, otherwise, throw down and enjoy!
Super simple baked chicken ("sorry" to my vegetarian friends), I served it with steamed broccoli.
For dessert? Blueberries and slivered almonds - yum!

Personal Training, PR Fitness Style

When you personal train at PR Fitness, you never know what you might be getting into. One thing I can assure you, no one compares to our trainers and no one gets you better results than our trainers!

One day you are getting strong in the gym...

Sherri, personal training client with Richard, strict curling 95#. Who is up for the challenge to top that?

One day you are doing Richards favorite workout, "Dragging the Line"...

On the rails in Lizton, taking a short break for a photo op. I've done this workout with Coach Richard several times. It's one of the best training sessions you will find!

Or, dodging a train while "dragging the line".
No worries. Sherri's training at PR Fitness helped her to possess the skills to jump the rails before the "Last Train to Pittsboro" could get the best of her... : )

Or doing some Old School Strongman Kettlebell work...

Bob, performing the "Two Hand Anyhow".

Get some! Contact Richard for details and to schedule your first session!
