About the Pacer Blog & Important Disclaimers

The Pacer blog contains information on walking, general fitness, nutrition, and other information suitable for anyone who wants to get more active. Our goal is to provide information that is accessible to beginners, as well as experienced walkers and everyone in between.

The information in the Pacer blog reflects authoritative outside sources as well as subjective ideas of the author of each piece. The information doesn’t necessarily reflect the viewpoints and/or recommendations of the Pacer app or the Pacer staff. You should make your own recommendations of what exercise or nutrition choices work best for you and your specific situation.

Ads, Sponsored Content and Sponsored Links

Pacer may, from time to time, review products or services on the Pacer blog. We also may provide special offers to readers of our blog, for which Pacer may receive compensation.

  • Pacer strives to clearly label any posts which are sponsored by an advertiser as well as posts and links from which Pacer may benefit financially. Here are some of our guidelines to help you clearly identify sponsored content:

  • Pacer will specify at the top of the article whether we will receive compensation from purchases or signups from links within the article.
  • Product reviews are written by Pacer and not influenced by the company providing the product or service.
  • Any “Sponsored Posts,” advertisements or “advertorial” content written by an advertiser will be clearly labeled as “Ad” or “Sponsored.” Any such articles will be distinguished from our genuine product reviews.
