How We Conduct Our Product Reviews

If you’re a visitor to my website you would have noticed that in addition to providing motivation, tips, and information on multiple areas of fitness, health, and wellbeing that we also provide reviews on equipment and supplements. Most of our reviews are based on our personal experience as I am a trail runner and have completed a marathon. As I’m currently training for the Ironman triathlon I also have experience in cycling and swimming.

Kelly Li, another regular writer on our website believes in a more holistic approach to life and focuses on healthy eating, mindfulness and practices yoga daily in order to learn more about herself and be able to help others.

On the other hand, we also have a regular writer who’s an aspiring chef by the name of Paul Moku, he also runs his own website dedicated to his recipes and cooking adventures however he often will post about various diets and recipes on our website too.

Below are some ways that we review our products for our website.

1. We purchase the products

For the most part, and in the majority of our reviews, we do research on the best products by purchasing them. For example, with my reviews on the trail running gaiters, I purchased the Salomon gaiters as I use the Salomon’s for a variety of running gear. I provide an unbias review of that specific product and then evaluate another few products that have made my shortlist.

2. We speak to other fitness and health enthusiasts using the products

As we review multiple products per post, we like to get a rough idea of how the other products perform compare to mine. We research YouTube influencers that have done reviews on the other products and often times we would reach out to them as we would like to provide their testimonial for the website in the reviews that often helps our visitors.

3. We do extensive research into the product and the company

Whichever products we review, we make sure to do diligent research on the company, its history, and the product itself. Because of this, we’re able to provide unbias reviews of if there are any issues with a particular product that a lot of users have brought up. Because of this, we’re able to provide a trustful review and our users can continue coming to our website to learn more.

4. We go through the reviews of the product and company throughout multiple sources

Whichever product has made it into our top 5 or top 10 list will go through a due diligence process done by us where we will go through reviews on multiple websites including large eCommerce websites to see if there’s a commonality between them and then we create a mean (average) score based off all of these websites to see if the product can make my shortlist. As I come from an IT, background, data is very important to me and we make sure that this is utilized across the website.

5. We will reach out to manufacturers directly

Oftentimes we may have a question that has been unanswered by influencers or other reviewers that many people might want to know. We would reach out to the manufacturer to get these questions answered as well as establishing a relationship with them for future products that get reviewed on

As you can see from most of our reviews and product roundups there is a lot of content in there as well as guides on helping people know what are the most important things to look out for when considering those certain purchases.

As an amateur athlete myself, I know that there is a lot of information on the internet and all I’m trying to do is help people make their own informed decision when it comes to product selection based around fitness and supplements as it’s an area that I’m very passionate about.

Our other two main writers for the website, Kelli Li and Paul Moku also share the same passion which is why we’re a great team that can tackle most topics that people care about when it comes to self-betterment and empowerment.

If you have any concerns with how I conduct my reviews or any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
