Fitness Reviews

What started as a passion for running has morphed in to a desire to learn about all things fitness and health! I read anything new that comes out, try new foods, new products, new classes, new training methods all in the desire to know more and continually improve!

Due to my honest nature you will find reviews really fall in to the following categories:
-Loved it and now it's part of my daily life
-Liked it and really recommend it
-Didn't work for me, but I can see the value for others
-Didn't work, don't like it and don't recommend it
-Not my thing, not going to offer to review it

My goal is not to be a marketing brochure, but to provide details and real world feedback on products that I believe meet my personal criteria of making healthy living easier or more fun. If you have an event or product that you would like me to review please get in touch. I am an avid reader, which is why you’ll see a whole section dedicated to books…anything running or health is on my list…but so is a good poolside novel.

If it were up to me, I would be fabulously rich and never need to ask for a penny from companies or put an ad on the site. As life would have it that is not the case so I aim to balance presenting you with curate, useful, interesting content and keeping myself afloat financially. These are my current policies:
  • My banner ads are either direct arrangements with companies, or ad networks where I earn a small amount of money based upon total pageviews.
  • I'm not selling anything, but I do earn a referral on any purchases made through links I provide to Amazon.com. I really appreciate you shopping using my links, since it's no added cost for you, and helps me keep RTTF going.
  • I turn down free items 95% of the time, because I want to ensure I'm truly sharing with you only products that I believe in and would use or recommend. The opinions and reviews I include with these products (such as "I love the taste") are honest, and are never done at the request of a company.  That is an advertorial and RTTF is my place to have an opinion.
  • Giveaways are generally paid sponsorships. All paid posts are clearly disclosed as paid within the post.

I also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
