FIT Radio was all over the web this past week! We were featured in Chocolate Covered Diamonds, Resonant Health, and MakeUseOf.com. 🙂 Thank you guys for all your support! This is the beginning of something BIG! Stay tuned…
Since more and more providers are switching to smaller data plans, I would suggest using wifi whenever possible (even when checking your email). Wifi will keep your battery from draining as well. The only time you should turn off your wifi signal is when you are on the move (ie running through the park, driving in your car, etc.). This will keep your phone from trying to pick up every signal you pass.
Today I thought I would share how we troubleshoot. A helpful and responsive user contacted me today because their FIT Radio App kept freezing. The reason: Out of Data. Here’s the conversation:
Hello Everyone! I’ve been busy prepping some big changes that are going to make the site and mobile apps 10x better! Can you say apps that load in a fraction of the time? You will be able to soon!
For now, I do need to address this as I see it frequently. If you’re not using an HTC EVO, then move along, there’s nothing to see here. If you have an HTC EVO (which was my first android) and would like to fix streaming problems with FIT Radio and possibly other apps, then… More
FIT Radio flew DJ Ri (pronounced rye) and Craig Smoove to Atlanta back in December to spin at one of the Top 3 Nightclubs in the country, Opera Nightclub. A little bit during and after their set, FIT Radio’s Music Director, Chris Rimby, had a chance to hang out with them and said they were pretty cool dudes… we couldn’t agree more! With so much going on like iClub blowing up and a never ending schedule of events to spin, DJ Ri doesn’t let it all get to his head. He is your typical California boy who enjoys kickin’ it at the pier or surfing some waves. And after the interview we found he’s got a bit of an adventurous side to him as well! Read on to discover more about one of our favorite FIT Radio DJs, DJ Ri… More

Hey gang, not sure if you know what some of my responsibilities entail at the FIT Radio office but a lot of it deals with tweeting about interesting fitness, music, and technology related articles. Since I have worked with FIT, you can imagine the amount of articles I read daily. This week I am reading up on, you guessed it, New Years Resolution articles! I found that there are so many out there that talk about weight-loss, or health, or even just self improvement. I picked my top three that touch on all of these topics:
It’s the cruelest of weight-loss conundrums: The closer you get to your ideal weight, the tougher it is to reach it, says L.A.-based celebrity trainer Holly Perkins. More

Being that we work in the Music, Nightclub, and Fitness industry, New Years Eve is a HUGE DEAL to all of us here at FIT Radio. As you can imagine, this week has been extremely busy for all of us. We’ve been running around trying to get ready for DJ sets, the new release of our website, seeing our families for the holidays, and every other imaginable task that continually transpires. However, like I said, NYE is a big deal, so we had to make a blog post about it. GETTING READY FOR YOUR NIGHT ON THE TOWN: A NYE TO NEVER FORGET
I am going to break this down into topics that every standard NYE prep itinerary should cover. 🙂
