    In a perfect world, we wouldn't have to worry about banned substances and performance enhancing drugs.

    Unfortunately, we've seen time and time again, some athletes and coaches walk down a dark path. It's very important to be aware of what you put into your body.

    The reality is that many of the prohibited substances "work." The problem is that these drugs can cause major health problems. There can be a fine line between fame/fortune and your life.

    I'm a strong believer in a competitive environment where athletes and coaches can improve without the use of dangerous enhancements.

    Here are some links about prohibited substances and other related information:

    USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency)

    NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association)


    You can also contact the Drug Free Sport Resource Exchange Center for information about medications and supplement ingredients.
