As of December 1st, 2009, the FTC requires that all bloggers disclose whenever there could be any type of hidden interests or unspoken biases related to product recommendations.
I hope you trust me enough to rest assured that I would never promote something or even shed light on something I didn’t firmly believe in, no matter what kind of kickback it could provide me. Unless it’s worth spending my own money on and unless I would use it myself I would never recommend it to you. I refuse to promote bullshit products and risk my reputation, no matter what companies may offer me or throw my way.
Nonetheless, there is still a lot of bullshit out there, and because of these scams full disclosure is now required. That means I would have to mention it every time I’m pictured wearing a t-shirt that someone might have given me for free or tell you if someone I work with picks up the bill for lunch. This would be tedious for me and make for a horrible reading experience for you.
To protect my own ass let’s just assume that for every link I post, recommendation I make, and product I use, all of the following hold true:
- I, the writer, was able to buy groceries
- I, the writer, was able to invest in tools to help me grow my business
- I, the writer, was able to afford to provide my friends, coaches, and family with awesome experiences
I Am a Team Beachbody Coach
There are a lot of product pushers out there with no vested interest in helping people, and I apologize on their behalf. They give us a bad name and are an embarrassment to the organization.
Whether you know this or not, I use Beachbody products and programs for my own health and fitness and have since 2009. I started my journey as an anorexic with zero self confidence or fitness knowledge whatsoever, and P90X and Shakeology were the wake-up call that helped be beat my eating disorder and change my life. There are now dozens of programs for all shapes, sizes, and interests, and all are streamable from your mobile device through Beachbody On Demand. This means that they can be done at home, at the gym, or anywhere you so desire.
Because my goal is to help others create positive changes in their lives, and because I believe that Beachbody products and programs are a proven solution, I recommend them on this site and anywhere/anytime I can. They work, but they will require work (that is, those who commit to following a program and the nutrition guide will be the ones that get results). Know that I make a small commission off of any Beachbody purchase made through this site, and extend my time and my fitness coaching as a thank you.
