Doping is stupid. That’s how it is. Everything can go wrong. With the body, the psyche, the friends, the job, the partner and the family. The risks with doping are severe, the price high, the consequences serious. Every time someone says no to doping, lots of people have won a big victory.
Friskis & Svettis is against all forms of doping. As a sports association and member of the National Sports Association, we also follow the rules that apply to all sports associations.
1. We vaccinate the association! All associations that have a gym in their training range are vaccinated against doping. This means, among other things, that the staff is trained and that there is an action plan if we suspect that any member is doping.
2. The association's anti-doping responsible leads the preventive work in the association. They have a broad network of knowledgeable and experienced people from, among others, the Doping jury, Swedish Anti-doping at the National Sports Association, Prodis, the police and other Friskis&Svettis associations.
3. Unannounced doping tests at all training places The National Sports Association can at any time carry out doping tests in Friskis&Svettis associations. In addition, the associations order doping controls from the National Sports Association. During the years 2007-2016, 1381 doping tests were performed on our members.
4. We train all our trainers in the gym All trainers receive basic knowledge of doping in their undergraduate education. Other officials are offered training in connection with internal training days.
