I’m guessing you are here for one of two reasons: 1) you want to eat cleaner, be leaner and find time in your crazy schedule to workout and plan for healthy meals, but it all seems so daunting, 2) you’ve found your healthy groove but are sick of the same rotated recipes and mundane fitness routine. OR are a family member I
forced diligently persuaded to be here. Whatever your reason for visiting, I can help!
I’m Chrissa, a fitness enthusiast passionate about cooking healthy meals and working out (smarter, not harder). I created Physical Kitchness to help others learn efficient ways to do the same with step-by-step workout tutorials, meal planning tips and healthy recipes – all without breaking the bank or feeling overwhelmed. From being a full-time career woman, a full-time moving-all-the-time military spouse and a full-time mom, I understand the challenges of a busy schedule and sometimes hectic life. My goal is to give you tools and advice both in the kitchen and in the gym, while keeping a sense of humor and realism, just as I would with my closest girlfriends.
I believe in eating fresh, whole, unprocessed foods and mixing up my fitness routine to avoid boredom. Because if things aren’t yummy and fun, then what’s the point?! Most of my recipes are paleo, however I don’t always follow a strict regiment every.single.day (especially when s’mores or tiramisu are involved). After all, life is about balance, moderation and happiness (which sometimes comes in the form of chocolate).
As for my workouts, I strive to keep them fresh and different. I am a certified barre instructor but also love running, kickboxing, high intensity interval training (HIIT) and hiking. Oh, and strength training is my friend – nothing beats feeling strong, looking strong and being strong!
Welcome to the inner workings of my head, my messy kitchen and my worn-out sneakers!
