What Drugs Do Fitness Models Use?

Over the last few years fitness models have gained a tremendous amount of popularity. There are hundreds of online videos dedicated to fitness modeling and members of the so-called aesthetic crew. This reveals the growing support and fan base of the beauty contest.


Unfortunately, fitness is not as clean as people make it to be. Just like competitive bodybuilders all popular fitness models are on the juice, and the whole industry is full of behind the curtains back stabs, lies and deception.

One of the most frequently asked questions about fitness are: Do fitness models use steroids and if yes – what kind of steroids do they use?

Without a doubt fitness models are on steroids and even growth hormone. The fact that someone is not as big as Ronnie Coleman does not mean that he is natural. You can be 135 lbs and still be taking anabolic steroids.

Why do you think there are different weight classes? To separate the naturals from the enhanced? Give me a break.

Fitness models use a variety of anabolic cocktails and the most popular compounds are:

1. TRENBOLONE  a.k.a. King Tren


Trenbolone a.k.a. tren is the main drug fitness models use. Truth be told, fitness modeling without trenbolone would look completely different. Tren has the ability to give the lifter a look that no other drug can match. It’s very specific and the physique looks like it was made in Photoshop. Sure, you can be big without using tren, but drugs like trenbolone give you the so-called ‘quality look‘.

Since nature wants its balance at all costs, the good things come with a lot of bad things. Trenbolone was never intended for human usage. It’s used by veterinarians on livestock to increase muscle growth and appetite. That’s why it causes incredible side effects and many people just can’t handle the nighmares. Among the most popular sides are: insomnia, night sweats, hair loss, increased blood pressure, nightmares, rrectile dysfunction, discoloration of the urine,  paranoia, addiction, acne, gynecomastia and many more unpleasant surprises. Of course, not everybody is going to experience all side effects, but they are quite common.

Trenbolone compounds are very powerful and have a binding affinity for the androgen receptor five times as high as that of testosterone.

Virtually, every aesthetic crew member is on tren or at least has done a few cycles. It’s a drug that also helps you get shredded and that’s why it fills the bill just right.

Here’s what a first time user of tren shared on a popular training forum:

Well, now I see what everyone’s talking about.

Last night was night 3. Couldn’t sleep, tossing and turning all night. No sweats, but bad headache and bodyaches like I have a fever from exhaustion or catching flu or something. By 7am I couldn’t take it, so I popped 2 acetominafens and 1/2 a percocet. I rarely take pain killers but man I needed them. Felt better for a few hours and got a bit of sleep. Since I woke up, I’ve been groggy as SHIT with a pounding headache. Not sure how I’m going to make it to the gym. Oh, and add to that the debilitating PIP in glutes, and makes for a very unpleasant time. Now I see how bodybuilders become drug addicts, and this is all on 80mg eod.

2. ANAVAR a.k.a. The Female Tren


Anavar is one of the most mythical anabolic steroids. It’s almost impossible to actually buy real Anavar. There are a lot of fakes out there and one of the reasons is that it’s a very expensive drug. So, when a drug dealer makes a fake and sells it for the real thing he makes very good profit. It’s not unheard of to buy Anavar and receive D-bol or something.

Females love that drug and use it almost exclusively. Many people even consider Anavar the female Trenbolone because its’responsible for the look of the modern fitness ladies. While anavar does not help you gain a lot of mass (one of the reasons many males don’t use it) it helps you improve your body composition and increases your strength tremendously. Powerlifters are known to use it since it makes them stronger while staying in the same weight class.

Unlike drugs like testosterone and D-bol anavar in general does not make you retain water and has smaller side effects. According to some Anavar is also preferred because it decreases the chances of suffering from gynecomastia, but there have been cases when Anavar users have developed ‘bitch tits‘ anyway. However, as we’ve already mentioned this drug is often faked and you can’t really know whether the people that are taking Anavar are really taking it.

Short history lesson:

Anavar production started back in 1964 and the first model was known as Oxandrolone. In 1980 it was discontinued and the prices went through the roof because of the limited supplies. In the mid 1990’s researchers were testing the drug as a method to combat the squandering results of AIDS. The final results had been so promising that BTG, a US-based firm started manufacturing the drug below the identify Oxandrin. However, to this day the drug is still known as Anavar. {more}

3. Clenbuterol


Clenbuterol a.k.a. clen is used by fitness models to lose the unwanted pounds and get real shredded. In its origins clenbuterol is a medicament used by sufferers of breathing disorders as a decongestant and bronchodilator.  People with chronic breathing disorders such as asthma use this as a bronchodilator to make breathing easier.

This type of drug has an effect on the beta receptors in the muscle tissue and the fat mass as a whole through the creation of thermogenesis. The drug increases your body temperature and as result it helps you burn more calories.

Another reason clenbuterol is so popular among muscle worshipers is that it not only helps you cut the unwanted fat, but also makes it easier to keep your muscle mass during a leaning out phase. There are studies showing that people losing fat on clen are able to keep their muscle mass compared to those who do it naturally. Naturals face this problem all the time – keeping your size while getting ripped. As a result it’s not uncommon for ‘real naturals‘ to use clen during their preparation phase.

Today, there is no doubt that clenbuterol has become a stable part of the ‘cutting stacks‘ of many modern fitness models. However, it’s not the only one and there are many more to be added to the list.

Side effects: muscle cramps, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, insomnia, dry mouth, vomiting, shaking {especially the hands}, anxiety, nervousness, breathing difficulties, sweating.

4. Triiodothyronine a.k.a T3

T3 is another cutting drug fitness models abuse. It а thyroid hormone that affects almost every physiological process in the body, including growth and development, metabolism, body temperature, and heart rate.

Have you ever wondered why bodybuilders and fitness models get away with eating high calories junk food all the time? Well, besides the other 2 millions drugs they take, T3 is also a key factor. It increases your metabolism and helps you cut fat real fast. However, it makes you appear flat and used on it’s own causes muscle mass loss. It’s a merciless drug that makes you lose muscle and fat at the same time. That’s why fitness models and bodybuilders take T3 with anabolic steroids to prevent muscle mass decrease.

T3 can be particularly stressful on the heart and can drain your body like nothing else. Like all other drugs mentioned here, it can cause serious health damages when used improperly by incompetent and knowledge deprived individuals. Among the main side effects of using T3 are: inability to think and remember anything (dementia), severe hair loss, muscle wasting, bone loss (osteoporosis), and high blood sugar (diabetes).

5. Cocaine, speed and other recreational drugs


Since most people buy their muscle drugs, or at least some them, from local underground dealers, it’s not uncommon for bodybuilders and fitness models to buy recreational drugs such as cocaine and speed from the same guys. Many fitness models use cocaine and speed as their main pre-workout. There are many fatal cases in which a fitness model has suffered tremendous damages after a healthy dose of similar pre-workouts. The most popular example would be, of course, Aziz Shavershian a.k.a. Zyzz who died from heart issues and in his system were found recreational drugs.

6. Growth hormone

It may surprise some of you but many fitness models also rely on growth hormone (GH) to keep themselves lean and strong. Since GH is really expensive, not everybody can afford to use. It’s a luxury saved only for the rich fitness models who basically live like kings. Of course, the dosages are small compared to professional bodybuilders. Fitness models use just enough to get that unreal 3D lean look but not so much that your mid-section explodes.

    Steroids are good for you ! If you Balance
    Then its good the key is Moderation…dont abuse it instead take advantage . . .

    1. Teresa

      I agree. As long as you work with a doctor and a prep coach on to use steroids safely and responsibly, you can achieve an outstanding physique, beautifully developed, and for women, you will achieve a body that other women will envy! You can achieve a look that is not attainable without it!

    I have no hard feelings at this point in time. Sure, the lies suck all the way around.

    But why do they do it? Why the big scam? It keeps more of the money in the pockets of legit pharmaceutical companies, bullshit supplement companies, and it helps keep the drugs out of the hands of morons and children who’d otherwise take the drugs and hurt themselves. How can I call that a bad thing? Even the supplement scam is good for the economy.

    Truthfully, I wish the drugs were more easily accessible, cheaper, and with better information. If you got a safe way to use or a way to use that actually improves health instead of hurting it, why not? As I mentioned before, problem still remains in such a case that morons will use and abuse and hurt themselves. Even insulin can be used safely, but there’s a reason why nobody wants to talk about it at all on steroid forums, some moron will use it incorrectly and get sick and die.

    That’s the catch 22. Is the grass really greener on the other side?

  3. oz

    Yeah, this really bugs me: everyone knows the 250 lb bodybuilder uses drugs, but there’s this perception that “fitness” models are natural.
    Glen: telling teenage boys they can look like them if they do cardio and their ab routine is obscene.

  4. Anonymous girl
