Disclosure Policy

Health and fitness are a passion of mine which I strive to share here on Best Body Fitness with fun workout ideas, nutritious recipes, motivational insights, tips, and more. As well as all those things, I hope to provide information about health, fitness, and food related products and events which I find others may enjoy. For that reason, I occasionally review products and events to present those opinions and give trusted feedback to my readers.

For these reviews, I will often receive free product samples or free entry into events. At times, I may receive additional monetary compensation for the time contributed to these review campaigns.

While I do occasionally receive free product and/or compensation to review these products, my opinions are always 100% honest. The free product and/or compensation received will never affect my opinions shared. Any such free product or compensation is provided as a general payment for my time in the creation of content and promotion via social media outlets. I am not getting paid for my opinions.

Please know that to ensure quality content for the readers of Best Body Fitness, I approach all review and/or giveaway proposals in a very selective manner. I do not accept the vast majority of offered reviews. I solely accept those that I find most applicable to my readers and for products/events I would naturally use, enjoy, and buy for myself.

I do my best to limit sponsored content and reviews to no more than two times per week or no more than 10-15% of my total content. When I do a review or sponsored post, I will always be open about any free product, sponsored campaigns, or other such compensation with my readers. I will state clearly in any post my receipt of the product for free and any other compensation involved. With the new FTC guidelines, I will also include disclosure via other avenues of social media with the following hashtags:

  • #spon: sharing of item received for free or with compensation in my own words
  • #ad: a specific message from a brand shared via my social media
  • #review: received the product free for review with no other compensation

I work hard to make all such content fitting for Best Body Fitness readers while also valuing the time and effort I put into the work. Thank you for your understanding of my work with brands for reviews and sponsored content.
