Marta Montenegro collaborated with famed tennis players Fernando Verdasco, Feliciano Lopez and Carlos Moya who were in Miami for the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament in Key Biscayne for the launch of the Montenegro Method fitness DVD Series hosted by Tennis Channel’s Fit to Hit’s Danielle Dotzenrod.
This DVD series introduces an innovative technique of training like an athlete and promises a long, lean, athletic body in just 21 minutes / 21 days. Party-goers had the chance to bid on sports memorabilia with proceeds going to Hogar de Cristo, a Chile-based charity advocated by tennis player Fernando Gonzalez, who was at the event to talk about his organization.
Michigan’s Pocket of Prosperity
Ann Arbor visitors will be happy to find that the city’s culinary highlights have as much local color and history as its other cultural offerings. There are nearly 300 restaurants serving everything from regional Italian foods to trendy, contemporary American dishes. Many chefs are proponents of the farm to table movement and it’s not unusual to see locally produced products on menus. Certified foodies know Zingerman’s specialty foods even if they haven’t been to the Ann Arbor deli.
