As a fitness blogger who advertises fitness products on his website, I get lots of emails every week from sponsors who want me to review or advertise their fitness equipment. Over the last couple of days my inbox has been flooded with tons of products that I supposedly must advertise for the Black Friday shopping day.
I was starting to believe all of that marketing speak and sales pitch. When I woke up this morning, I had the notion that I needed to publish an article about all the latest deals on fitness equipment.
I’ve come to realize through the day that I don’t want to be that person who just tries to get people to buy stuff. Although I did write about holiday fitness ideas last year, somewhere between then and now, I’ve decided that I’m just not comfortable doing that. I don’t care if all of the blogging experts are saying that I should, or even if I stand to lose out on earning some extra cash through this website for not advertising as many things as I can.
Instead of doing that, I’ve decided to refer you to articles that I’ve written previously. These articles were written not just to sell products, but to talk about equipment or items that I actually use and/or would recommend; not because they’re on sale (although they might be), but because I have benefited from using them and think that you would benefit as well.

Popular Fitness Equipment
As always, I keep my popular fitness gear page updated year round. I do it because fitness is a year-round endeavor, not something to be up-sold during shopping season.
