Joining Hands to Make a Difference

Our theme as of late has been superheros. We've celebrated your heroic accomplishments and gloated in the role we have played in your success. We would like to throw out our own challenge for you.

A friend of Fluid Fitness is in need of a hero or at least the heart of one. Eleven year-old Shannon Tavarez, who has played "Young Nala" in Disney's The Lion King on Broadway, was diagnosed with blood cancer in April. She is in great need of a life-saving bone marrow transplant and we are doing our part to make her search for a matching donor a success.

There are several ways you can help:

1. Join the Broadway community for a bone marrow drive:
Friday, July 23rd
10 AM - 3 PM
Minskoff Theatre (Lion King's home)
200 W 45th Street, NYC

2. Register on line as a bone marrow donor. (

3. Donate money. One hundred percent of your tax deductable contribution will go to registering bone marrow donors. (

DKMS Americas is a non profit organization that recruits bone marrow donors for leukemia patients. Only 10% of patients get the donations they need and DKMS is dedicated to changing that number. It does that by raising awareness of their program and increasing the diversity of its donor pool.

You know we love to support our heroes in their endeavors.This time we encourage you to be soft and mushy - on the inside, where it counts. So, even though this challenge doesn't require strong, supple muscles, bring in your donor registration information and we'll give you a free 15 minute Migun massage!

All Our Clients are Winners!

It's been a while since we last bragged about our clients. That's because we have been hard at work cultivating new winners. No, really - we do mean winners. We'd like to dedicate this post to celebrating Fluid Fitness clients that participated in the 2010 Manhattan DanceSport Championships that were held at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott

Our very own Lilian Wong and Erminio Stefano outpaced their competitors in the Waltz, Tango and Foxtrot, garnering them first prize in the PRO/AM Gold Standard Scholarships.

Helen Nicoll and Louis Chockuba won an easy second in the PRO/AM B Gold Standard Scholarships and Fifi Wang and her partner placed fourth.

Making us proud the rest of the weekend were professional competitors Sergey Bolotnikov, Mariko Cantley, Michael Choi, Iveta Lukosiute, Gherman Mustuc and Boriana and DelyanTerziev as well as amateur competitors Angela Eftychiadis, April Klevins, Wendy Sherman, Lorraine Peoples, and Lisa Rapoport.

We are proud of the work we do for our clients and proud of the accomplishments they garner for themselves. Fluid Fitness thinks each one deserves a gold star. Don't worry, we promise not to lick them and stick them to your forehead!

Do you have some goals that require you to give more physically? Whether your goal is lasting through a tough dance competition or having the mobility and stamina to stay on the dance floor with your friends, come on in and check us out. Before you know it we'll be bragging about you, too!
