The Moment You've Been Waiting for is Almost Here: The New FIT Radio App

By superadmin,

The FIT Radio team has been working hard to launch our newest HTML5 website and mobile website (app) that should promise to be faster and more reliable. No one is ready for it more than we are, as we have been working on it for almost a year now! Once released, Windows Phones, Blackberry Users, and anyone with an internet connection will be able to use FIT Radio! Our current app has been having issues handling all the content (as we now have a HUGE library of music) and the high traffic we have been receiving from all our loyal users. 🙂 Alas, we are in our final stages of testing and the wait will soon be over!

Fanny Packs Are Back In The Form Of Jammy Packs!

By superadmin,

I have a friend named Meghan who has been talking about bringing “fanny packs back” for years now. “No way!” I said. “It’s never gonna happen,” I promised. Then, Boom. I stumble upon a website that sells something called Jammy Packs, which has taken the old school Fanny Pack and somehow made it cool again. They are called Jammy Packs and they come in all sorts of bright, trendy colors and cool designs and… the best part… they’ve added loud speakers to them! Voila! They’re “in”. Who knew it would ever be cool to sport that Fanny Pack you’ve been begging your mom to stop wearing for years now (along with those high wasted, bunchy mom jeans – Let’s just hope those never make a come back!). The Jammy Pack Phenomenon is a pretty new thing and hasn’t really made it past the California line yet (oh, those trendsetting Californians). Be the first in your city to bring this trend back! I know our FIT Radio promo girls are all over the idea! What could be better than a bag that can hold all of your belongings and play FIT Radio!? Nothing, that’s what.

But, don’t take my word for it. Check it out yourself.

G.U.R. aka The Great Urban Race

By superadmin,

 

So this past Saturday, Lexi and I had the privilege of promoting with the team organizing and coordinating The Great Urban Race, which is, if you don’t already know, a crazy fun scavenger hunt throughout Atlanta, or Chicago, or whichever city they are visiting that weekend. Think The Amazing Race television show but on a somewhat smaller scale 😉 Anyway, the race wasn’t without a clue sheet, themed teams with fun costumes and, what else, great music provided by yours truly! It was an awesome experience not only because of the stirring atmosphere surrounding all the runners but the people at Red Frog Events were so incredibly helpful and kind. Cynthia, Catherine, Tyler, and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with and we can’t wait to do more with Red Frog Events! Anytime we ever speak with anyone at their company, they are always happy and full of excitement and energy. You can tell they all must love what they do! Here are some pics, and don’t forget to head on over to our Facebook to see them all!! P.S. I would definitely recommend signing up for this event! Check out their page to see if they’re in a city near you.

Music Update

By superadmin,

What’s up FIT Radio fans!  We’ve got some great new mixes to tell you about!
First up is an outstanding Electronic/Indie Dance mix by new FIT DJ Funk Manchu.  It’s titled “Live @ Backbooth” and features melodic, energetic tracks and expert mixing for the entirety of the mix.  This is a standout piece of work…don’t miss it!
For you rock fans, we’ve got a ton of new stuff to fuel your workouts with.  Bynar’s “Regret It All” will expose you to wonderful indie and alternative rock that you probably won’t hear on the radio.  Trust me though…it’s as good or better than anything on standard radio rotation.
FIT Radio’s own DJ Commander comes strong with two classic rock mixes titled “Communication Breakdown” and “Walk This Way.”  These mixes are made of pure rock classics.  You will know and love all the selections!
Finally the FIT Radio legend Dizzy K is back at it with “Vol. 5 (2012)”.  Don’t let the generic name fool you…this mix is hard hitting club Hip Hop through and through!  I throw this mix on during my hardest workouts of the week!
**Also, we want to hear what you have to say about our content. We are in the process of rating the current mixes on our app and we want your input so let us know which mixes you love to jam out to at the gym, party, or even in the shower!
Do you use favorites? If so, which mixes do you have favorited? Visit http://www.fitradio.com/blog/content-ratings-and-suggestions to rate your favorite (and least favorite) mixes now! Thank you!
Have a great week of fitness and health and check back next week for new great music!

Tiesto Part 2

By superadmin,

So, if you’ve ever been to a Commercial House show then you know this video doesn’t do the light display justice but those who haven’t will be able to get a general idea of the awesomeness this kind of performance can ensue. The lights are a huge part of any DJ set and Tiesto kicked it up a notch and this past Saturday was a treat to say the least. I had to wear ear plugs because the treble was so high, and the music was still blasting with them in! Just the sight of the crowd was a sight to see, if you didn’t make it to the show or don’t live in the Atlanta area, I highly suggest you check out Tiesto’s schedule and other big House djs because it is an experience you don’t want to miss.

To Scoot or Not To Scoot: That is The Question!

By superadmin,

Since it started getting warm, I find myself fantasizing about riding to work in stiletto heels on a baby blue scooter, scooting around the city without worrying where I am going to park, and completely forgetting about how much gas is going to cost today. I have always loved driving, but since moving to the city, it has become more of a pain in the a$* than an escape or adventure! The streets of Atlanta are very narrow and full of potholes. The drivers don’t know how to stay in their own lanes and are always venturing over into the one next to them for awhile. Oh, and I don’t even need to mention Atlanta Traffic! So, to say the least, I am frustrated, and I envision the scooter being the answer to all of my problems. Plus, it’s gotta be better for your health! A lot more physical activity goes into driving a scooter than a car. Right? And, as a girl, I can not overlook the upside of the possibility of getting a tan while driving to work!

What do you think? I would love to hear anyone’s opinions on owning and driving a scooter in the city. I don’t even know the traffic laws for a scooter. Is it legal to drive through the middle of cars while they are stopped? I always see people doing it, but is it actually legal? What about parking? Is it legal (and more importantly SAFE) to leave your scooter on the sidewalk somewhere? These are the questions that are running through my mind. Someone, please help! 🙂
