2. THE COACHES
2.1 John Maitland and Samson Hodin are both fully qualified Personal Trainers. As qualified Personal Trainers, John Maitland and Samson Hodin are permitted to give out exercise, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. You should follow all advice given at your own risk, though we will always strive to suggest the safest advice we can. Always consult your medical provider before starting or changing an eating or exercise regime.
3.1 We may at some point use affiliate links on The Evolved Way. This means we may occasionally link to external websites which sell products for which we receive a small commission or other non-monetary benefits. We never write articles for the sole purpose of earning a commission. Any products we may endorse are genuine recommendations on our behalf. In other words, we will not promote products we do not believe in, regardless of how much commission we would earn.
3.2 We also sometimes link to external companies or products with no benefit, financial or otherwise, to ourselves. We are all about spreading knowledge and health so if we don’t earn a penny for referring our customers or users to an external company it is for the sole benefit of the customer or user, and we can live with that. We have no responsibility for the content displayed on other websites.
