Dashing Dish

By superadmin,

So we all love those guilty comfort foods, right? How about the idea of those favorite foods still being tasty without all of the calories? Impossible you may say, but not so much!

DashingDish.com is a website developed by a young lady named Katie Farrell who has taken guilt-ridden comfort foods and made them into tasty goodness without all the remorseful calories.

Her dishes range from Skinny Red Velvet Cupcakes to Mini Mexican Pizzas (yum!). On Dashing Dish not only do all of the recipes include the caloric amount, Katie also makes it simple for anyone participating in Weight Watchers by including the “points” each dish is worth as well! On top of including caloric values, Katie also shares her simple tips to jazz up an ordinary workout to make it more fun, intense and worthwhile.

Dashing Dish is based upon an idea that living a healthy and spiritual lifestyle doesn’t have to be rigid and boring, but motivational and fun. Reading a little bit of Katie’s story you learn that she was inspired to create Dashing Dish because as a teenager and young adult, Katie faced challenges with her diet, exercise, and health habits in general but over came them by finding spiritual inspiration and realizing she (and everyone) can still eat yummy foods just in a healthier way. (Hallelujah!)

 

Now, Katie’s recipes have been featured on one of our personal favorite sites (and it’s also how we discovered her) Fitsugar.com and by the looks of her blog she is happy, healthy, and loving life! Everyone go check out DashingDish.com and download a recipe, try it, and let us know what you think! There is something for everyone, even *Gluten Free recipes! Enjoy!

Getting To Know Your Favorite FIT Radio DJs: DJ HOHME

By superadmin,

Getting to know your favorite FIT Radio DJs…

FIT Radio flew DJ HOHME down to Atlanta back in July to spin at one of the Top 3 Nightclubs in the Country, Opera Nightclub. We had such a good time and enjoyed his set so much we just had to bring him back! He’ll be back in “The A” this weekend and we couldn’t be more pumped!  HOHME has great energy behind the decks, and he really knows how to make sure everyone on the dance floor is having a good time. Read our  interview we did with him; it’s sure to get you all pumped and excited to jam out to HOHME whether it be on the web or your app, or if you’re in town, at Opera Nightclub!

Back in July I received the opportunity to chat with HOHME and ask him a few questions. Here is what he had to say…

Where is your favorite place to spin?  Anywhere people go specifically to let go and dance.  I’d say my recent favorites have to be my sets at Burning Man back in early September, a private beach party in Rincon, Puerto Rico in October as well as my set at Opera Nightclub in Atlanta back in July.



Where are you from?  Originally, I’m from Southern Oregon, but I went to school and lived in LA for nearly 7 years.  Also, I lived in Beijing for about 6 months.

Where do you live now? I’m currently based in NYC, specifically the East Village.

How did you come up with the idea for your iPad DJ MixBoard App?  I was looking for a way to make my DJ efforts as mobile as possible, and having to bring/rely on turntables/cdjs at every event was not something I wanted to do…so I took all the main features I use the turntable for and designed them into the interface of the app.  Now I can control basically everything I ever did with a turntable wirelessly on my iPad.

What was the hardest part about launching the iPad app?  The hard part was designing it in a way that included everything i needed (gain, effects, loops, cues, pitch control). Other than that, considering it’s based on open-source framework off an existing app, I didn’t really have to worry about launching it at all (which is why I ended up giving it out for free download).

Where is your favorite place in the world?  Oh man, that’s hard to answer… If I had to give just one, I’d say Katmandu, Nepal. I spent a little over a month backpacking through Nepal and India back in 2008. Describing the first time I saw the himalayas in person as breathtaking wouldn’t do it justice whatsoever.  It was straight up moving.  Not to mention, nepal is probably the furthest I’ve been from western culture, which was refreshing.

Where does your fashion inspiration come from?  I’ve always liked fashion, but never considered myself fashionable really.  I’d say my inspiration comes from close friends; a lot of my friends have serious style and mine, I’d say, is just a runoff from what I liked that they were wearing here and there. Currently I love basic, non-branded clothing with minimal but tactful details.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done?  …depends what your definition of crazy is.  Most recently, I’d say Burning Man takes the ticket.  There’s no way to fully describe what it’s like on the playa, but it was the best/craziest week of my life…  just an insane time.

What is your favorite thing about being a DJ?  I get to play the music I love for a living.

What is your favorite track at this moment in time?  I’m working on a bootleg of Morgan Page’s “Fight For You” right now with a producer partner of mine named Odmark, out of DC.  It’s sounding awesome!

What type of equipment do you use?  Macbook running Serato, Rane TTM 57sl mixer, and iPad…producing on Logic Pro

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?  Happy, blessed, positive

What is something no one knows about you?  I was a double major in business & dance in college.  I’ve danced my whole life.

What do you do when you aren’t spinning? Listen to a TON of new music, sleep.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?  Touring internationally, owning a record label, playing stadium crowds/festivals.

What are your thoughts on FIT Radio?  It’s the best, most user-friendly way to stream mixes on the app store.  Hands down.

Why Fitness is Beneficial for Cancer Patients

By superadmin,

Exercise is not the golden key in seeking a cure for cancer; however, it is the foundation on which any fight against the disease must be staged.

People always describe the fight against cancer in very combative tones and
metaphors. You don’t just beat cancer, you “kick its ass,” you don’t just deal
with cancer, you “battle” it. Regular exercise is like Rocky getting up earlier than
everybody else to drink an all-protein breakfast and fit in an hour run so that he
can eventually go up against Apollo Creed. If you’re up for a fight with cancer,
then you’re in for the most important fight of your life, and you’d better be fit
enough to go the distance. More

The Color Run: "Great Success! Very Nice!"

By superadmin,


FIT Radio was invited to provide music for the Finish Line at The Color Run this past weekend at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Since we all talked about how exciting it looked months before while we sat in the office, we were all thrilled to receive the opportunity to partner up with such a unique race. We brought out a team of Promo Girls with FIT Radio stencils and neon orange paint; as the girls ran around tagging people, they also got in on the action (see Abby, a FIT Radio promo girl, covered in paint to the left).

 

The Color Run was something none of us have ever seen before! It honestly was the Happiest 5K you could ever run! There were people playing around with colored powder everywhere, throwing it in the air, as they danced with their friends. The energy of the crowd was incredible! We may be a little biased, but we believe that it had something to do with our FIT Radio DJ Rimby who was providing non-stop, high-energy music throughout the entire event. All-in-all, it was a great day, and the most fun we have ever had promoting FIT Radio. Kudos to The Color Run for such a great idea!

Hot Topic: Bikram Yoga

By superadmin,

Carolyn Seaman, Social Media

So, I know this isn’t really new or anything to most people or “yogis” but I have just recently been very interested in Yoga and the benefits it provides in strength and flexibility and the overall health advantages in general. I am not experienced at all and when I do practice yoga I realize I am not nearly as strong or balanced as I thought, a wobbly mess is more like it. I love the challenge though, so naturally I want to push myself to the limit. A girlfriend of mine invited me to join her for her next hot yoga class and I couldn’t be more excited! I think it will definitely be interesting and an awesome learning experience. Reading up on the studios in my neighborhood so once I am able to find time in my hectic schedule, I will be ready to make an appointment! Stay tuned for a follow-up post about my Bikram Yoga experience. Ps. If anybody has any tips or experiences they’d like to share feel free! I am going to need all the help I can get!

Ultra Music Festival: Check!

By superadmin,

 

The experiment is complete! The newbie has returned with all the details from Ultra Music Festival. With the love of electronic dance music growing in America recently, Ultra was the number one stop for all DJ lovers. Over 50,000 people were in attendance this year making moving around the seven stages very challenging. Upon arrival to the entrance the lines were so long I thought we would have to enjoy the concert from the other side of the fence. Once my crew and I were inside, we were a bit overwhelmed by the size of the park and stages. I first decided to go see Benny Benassi on the main stage, which was packed with people as far as the eye can see. It is really an awe inspiring moment when you see 25,000 people all jamming out to Benny Benassi like it’s a heavy metal show. After Benny, we spent our time walking around taking in little snippets of everybody’s sets until it was late and the fireworks began. By the end of day one I had a weird mix of feelings: confusion, happiness, excitement, and exhaustion.

Day two brought about a new round of adventures that I was more than willing to indulge and some very serious Miami heat. *Remember to always stay hydrated at Ultra because I witnessed one too many people go down from exhaustion and dehydration. The best set of day two would have to have been Avicii because of the very controversial Madonna appearance. Queen Madge came onto stage to declare her love for electronic music, promote her new album,  and claim that she has been coming to Ultra ”in spirit” for the past twelve years. To top off the mind-blowing experience, she proceeded to ask the crowd if anyone has seen molly. Molly is the street name for the drug MDMA, which is very similar to Madonna’s new album title MDNA. For the most part, day two was mainly dedicated to dubstep. All the heavy bass got my body moving and gave me a 7 hour cardio session!

Day three was the most uneventful as I could only stay for three hours because I was extremely late and overslept from the night before. However, I did manage to fit in a set by SBTRKT and Bassnectar. In the end, I must say that Ultra is an amazing experience that any EDM lover should try it out at least once. Plus, all my dancing in those three days made me lose seven pounds so add awesome workout to the description as well!
