Anabolic Steroids: An Olympic-Sized Impression

By James Ryan On December - 8 - 2009

As a youth football coach and the father of two young, impressionable athletes, I find the entire topic of steroids and performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) to be absolutely appalling. 

There is just something about steroids and the permanent place that they now seem to have in our society (and our favourite sporting events) that simply rubs me the wrong way. 

Then again, prior to coaching and fatherhood, I had always been a very strong advocate against the use of PEDs, whether it be in sport or in life. 

Back in 1987, when I was 14 years old, I was fortunate enough to gain employment at a local gym in my hometown of Fort Erie. 

Being a “gym rat” was a great job to have as a young person, and looking back, I enjoyed it very much. 

I had the opportunity to train and learn alongside some tremendously-gifted athletes and community leaders.
