The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose the nature of my website advertising and my relationship with the manufacturer or seller of any product that I endorse on this blog. My policies for reviews and endorsements are as follows:
1. This is a website written by me but occasionally I post content written by others.
2. I do not partake in affiliate links at this time.
3. I accept no monetary payment for any review or post that I write on Total Running Performance and Fitness.
4. If a product was provided to me free-of-charge by a manufacturer, seller, or marketing firm for the purposes of testing and writing a review, I will disclose this in the body of the post.
5. No manufacturer or seller of a product will influence the form or outcome of any review that I write. I strive to write reviews that are both honest and thorough, and I only endorse products that I genuinely feel will be of benefit to my readers.
NOTE: I am a coach, personal trainer and Physical Therapist but I am NOT your coach, personal trainer or Physical Therapist. Please contact me for further information if you want to enter into a relationship in one of the above but do not assume you are because of anything on this blog.
