Hear what you're saying, and I would imagine that it's true you'd have to be seeking it out and it just isn't 'pushed' onto people ... in the vast majority of places. Thing is? They are talking about HERE. I wouldn't doubt that there are those that would lurk gyms here to push ANY drug, not just steroids. There was a young man here, while still in HS, that was working out every single day in the gyms here. Suddenly he was bigger then ever. He was very insecure about his body as he was of smaller stature, and I asked him how many hours a day he was working out. He replied that he wasn't working out more hours, but ".. to be honest, I've started steroids, and they work. I mean, seriously I don't have to work out more hours and get the same results!" I told him I was afraid for him. He was a sophmore at the time. I asked him how did he even know about steroids... guess... AT THE GYM. He admired other builders, and literally didn't know any different. He trusted and figured he had something in common with someone that he could look to as mentor so it made sense to him to get on them. He had great pride in his appearance and his self esteem was greatly boosted for a while. He figured out after a while (and, my basically stomping on him. lol) that the other guys weren't mentors at all, but disgusting drug pushers that made money off of him. He was so pissed. Totally disillusioned and depressed. He said it was hard to stop them because SO MUCH was on how he felt about his appearance. He had to get real with that. God, what a mess, and pissed me off in a huge way. I am not his parent so I did not go into the gym to confront these PIGS that so-called 'mentored' him.
In the end, he stopped the steroid use, cut back his workouts to sane hours (and kept nicely fit) and learned he needed to build his self-esteem from within. Today he's doing EXCELLENT, but what a hard and worrisome time it was. So you see... AROUND HERE, it is not the same as 'everywhere else'. On every level at that.
I've trained at every gym around here and have never seen that go on but even if it is so we are all responsible for our own actions and anybody who puts something in there body without researching it first is asking for trouble. Ive been on juice for over 6 years and get blood work done every 3 months and I'm in perfect health. Don Dare come on people lets focus on getting the real drugs off the streats. Steroids is not a problem here the damn meth n pill are

The guy was a MINOR. The guys in the gym were adults. He'd have had to have had to know to research steroids before listening to them. They talked a great game, because the kid definitely wasn't stupid, he was just vulnerable. They sensed his vulnerability, and lack of information, and intentionally built on it to gain his trust.

It wasn't until I confronted him, that HE began to research as I aided him in that research. He would even go back and discuss what he had learned as he was going along, and there they were talking their game using THEIR bodies as 'in your face' backup. I kept up with him researching, and finally able to guide him to now make an INTELLIGENT AND INFORMED decision about taking steroids. He will always be a 'gym rat'(lol) and like I said he looks great... but, as an adult now, I'm pretty certain he will NEVER see taking steroids as a smart and wise decision. He's STRONGER than that, now.

Cut back on the "juice" so your gray matter can heal.. or were you always this neanderthal, before you even started working out?

Not Neanderthal just realistic. This kid wanted to juice and knew where to get it. That's on him and nobody else. Then he gives you a sob story bout low self esteem and being pressured and you go all docter Phil on him. Plus if they did not hurt him then what is the fuss. You sound like you just like to cry. This will be my last comment bc it's impossible to get through to narrow minded people and by the way you an your boy should leave the gear to the real men that are smart enough to use it. Neanderthal that is so funny you jacka!! bc I'm a fuc?Ing chemist

Thats hilarious you idiot bc one of the trainers there is a huge steroid player in this town. Casteletons is cool if you just want to lose a little bit of weight or get out of the house but your a serious athlete with goals it is not for you. Since when did it become cool for lazy people to hate on athletes. We started the gym business. Guess it's your way of coping with bring fat and pathetic or just a bag of bones
Just because a person is built does not mean they are on steriods. If they decide to take enhancements isn't that their business. By the way do you even know the trainer at Castleton's.

Your right about getting built without chemical help and your right nobody at Castleton's uses you cam tell bc there is just a bunch of pretty boys lifting small weights. Everyone knows that the real heavy iron gets lifted at other gyms. Castleton's is a fitness club not a gym

Noone should be putting down any gym. There is heavy lifters at every gym. There is people who go just to lose weight and keep trim.

Ok. You are right. But if someone does steroids that is their business. And the trainer at Castletons does not do them. He is all natural. You can get that way if you work on it.

You can not look like Arnold, Lou, or any other world class bodybuilder without Steroids and working out 8 to 10 hours a day, the rest of the day you have to eat healthy foods, which vary during the day depending on when you lift, cardio, go to bed, etc. It IS NOT POSSIBLE. But if a guy is huge, ripped and strong as hell, that doesn't mean he is on steroids, necessarily, he could just work out 5 or more days a week for maybe 4 hours, watch his diet like a runway model, and do all this consistently for about a decade. Steroids make all that easier, but it is still hell. And without roids you just can't look like some kind of sci-fi freak.

Why you people need shiny weights and some country bullshit playing in the background. I have been out of the gym for a few weeks but you can't beat LaFollette Fitness. If you feel uncomfortable with some heavy music then try Curves. If you want to get big and/or strong. Go to LaFollette Fitness and lift some free weights. Will any gym work? Yes. A cheap home gym used correctly is better than Venice Beach's Golds Gym if you just go there for social hour and don't bust your ass. Just like anything in life, most things that very hard are pursued by few people. I think every guy wants to be built, maybe not like some freak of nature on the cover of Flex, but every guy wants to be large/muscular and not fat. If they say any different they are just disillusioned or afraid of the truth. I want to be so big that I have to turn sideways to go through doors. I rather be huge than strong but the two usually go hand and hand. I mean there are powerlifters who are strong as fuck and they look out of shape in clothes, but even if they have a huge gut, they are straight up yolked. I have had girls tell me they don't like huge guys and I seriously don't give a fuck. I do it for me. If I am ever walking in an alleyway, unarmed, and some Justin Beiber looking little bitch attacks me with a bat or some shit, there is a good chance that I would take it away from him and stick up his ass. I wouldn't equate being huge to being a good fighter. You lose flexibility with size. I don't know what women want in a gym because I am not a woman and I have never taken a survey. And as far as steroids go, you can usually find what you are looking for. Life isn't some afterschool special where drug dealer run around giving "free samples" to get you hooked. You don't get free drugs unless you are a celebrity or a really hot chick, and you don't get offered them, usually, unless you are looking.

every girl knows that body builders build to compensate for insecurities over their small units. steriods make it even worse but it makes sense that they use them since too small is too small so smaller isn't going to make any difference. some girls go out with them to use as eye candy but when it comes down to it they're really just friends because really thats all he has going for him or the girl doesn't like sex much to begin with so who cares. sorry but that's the truth. girls also their egos are extremely fragile and that gets on the nerves really fast, so yeah, eye candy and that's about it. shallow maybe but oh well it's the truth!

Hey truth, if you did a little research you would find out that the TRUTH about steroids shrinking your man part are urban legend. They shrink festivals but that's all. Know your facts before you try to look smart

Then if you already knew that then you would know that there is stuff to take to prevent that from happening so therevis no shrinkage anywhere but I'm not telling you nothing you don't already know I mean after all I'm stupid bc I had a typo. I really do feel sorry for people like you that have no other life than to start drama. It's impossible to have a discussion on here bc there is always some CHILD wanting to argue. I don't like to argue but that's probably bc I'm not pathetic.

no argument just stating facts. got your feelings hurt over those facts well that's on you. grow up then maybe you can deal with it better instead of whining. couldn't care less if you do or not fool and that was no typo lol you just can't bring yourself to use grownup words. prob another side effect of using steroids or it could be natural for you but again your problem not mine. that's the REAL truth.
