We read in the newspaper every now and then about drug busts, and how the government is fighting to keep our streets clean.
I don't think they are doing a good enough job, since the drug dealers are among us, more specifically in our fitness and health clubs. sure they are not selling heroin or coke, but they are still putting our youth at risk.
F. my roommate got a phone call today, "aziz your cousin is in the hospital"
after the initial shock wore off we got the details. Aziz is 17, he goes to a well known fitness club in Kuwait. His mom thought it would be a good way to keep him from running around in the streets.
While there, he was approached by one of his "trainers" who offered him a few pills. He told him that these pills ,for a small sum of money, can give him the body he dreams of and blah blah blah.
Aziz took the pills for a while, then he was approached again by the same trainer who told him he had something even better, and now aziz is in the hospital. His hormones are messed up, and his body is secreting something weird.
I know for a fact that this story is very common. That so called trainers approach young men and offer them pills and "vitamins"
There is a huge lack of education in what these pills and powders and drinks can do to your body, and people take them in large doses in the hope of speeding up the dream body project.
It is dangerous and should have harsh legal consequences.
No one should ever take anything without consulting there DR!
and contrary to common belief too much vitamins is NOT good for you!
Selling of pills and vitamins in health and fitness clubs should be banned, and if someone offers to sell you something you should take it up with the club managers! and a police report should be filed ESPECIALLY when that someone is a minor!!
