These famous words spoken by the late Maya Angelou are part of what inspired today’s post. Recently, I’ve been noticing more and more people and news stories talking about the newest “quick fix” and “fat busters” to shed weight for summer. It started about 2 weeks ago when a Facebook ad caught my eye. It was an ad for a miracle, all natural ingredient proven to melt away fat. Typically, I don’t even entertain these ads but something else made me think this product could be different from the thousands of others promising the same results. It was being promoted by someone who I thought was a reputable source. The infamous Dr. OZ not only backed this ingredient, but featured a demonstration of how it works on his show. I thought, “this must be a new health break through if Dr. OZ is willing to back it up and give it his stamp of approval!” More
It’s warming up outside (for some of you!) Which means:

Well if I had to sum up this week’s MixLab in one phrase it would have to be, “anybody want some weiners and balls?” You can thank DJ Mami Chula for that one! She had purchased a barbecue platter of sorts for the DJs which consisted of mini sausages and meatballs 🙂 ANYway, back to the MixLab recap! We had a new group of DJs and they were super excited to work together and make a brand spankin’ new collabo’ mix for the users as well as partake in jäger bombs and provisions alike. Did I mention we were streaming the whole thing live? I’ll have a link to that video for you guys on Monday so be sure to check back!
The USTREAM live feed went so well we decided that it’s more than likely going to be a staple for the FIT Radio MixLab so if you missed out this week, have no fear because it will be back 🙂
Check out the mixes from this week’s DJs and don’t forget to favorite the ones you love!
DJ Euphoria – Get Ready
DJ Silver Knight – O.P.P.
DJ Murgatroyd – Surge
So last Wednesday we had an idea come to life. We wanted to find a way to get a few of the FIT Radio DJs together in our office to hang out, play music, and work together to create awesome mixes for our users. It’s a little something we’re calling FIT Radio MixLab. We had some turn tables set up
so the DJs could switch off and do a live collaboration mix which was awesome because it’s definitely interesting to see what they come up with on the spot and watch the genres blend together. While all of this is going on, they were recording a separate mix on their own! Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Mami Chula was at the helm of the get together making sure everyone was having a great time yet staying on track (apparently, DJs tend to have short attention spans.) There may or may not have been a little liquid courage to get the gears moving (I’ll never tell!)
oops, or maybe I will…
Well that’s it for now! Check back next week for a new batch of DJs and a new batch of mixes! Until then, here are the mixes from the first ever FIT Radio MixLab! Enjoy!
DJ Danny M’s Mix – Move Your Feet
DJ Spy’s Mix – Bass Cannon
DJ Rapko’s Mix – Strangers
DJ Johnny D’s Mix – I Can’t Wait
Yes you read that right, to all of you who thought BlackBerry was a thing of the past, shame on you for falling for their incredible hustling ways. In the words of LL Cool J, “Don’t call it a comeback, I been here for years.” FIT Radio has released a new build for the BlackBerry and it’s pretty freakin’ awesome. If you haven’t checked out the latest touch screen from the BBM masters, your fingers are missing out. The design for the app is somewhat similar to the Android, but the user interface is obviously congruent with how the BlackBerry is designed. This isn’t your dad’s phone anymore, spread the word: FIT Radio is on BlackBerry and we’ve got thousands of reasons (aka bomb a$$ mixes) why you should get back to your ol’ CrackBerry ways, but this time get addicted to fitness and music rather than breaking that silly roller ball playing Brick Breaker.
