In 2007 STAD started work on the project “100% pure hard training” which is a collaboration model for reducing the use and supply of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) and other banned substances at gym’s and fitness centers. The main reason behind the foundation of this project was that in Sweden there had been mainly work done for the prevention of the use of anabolic androgenic steroids by focusing on changing the attitudes among secondary school students and that therefore there was a need to develop other preventive methods. Due to the fact that fitness centers are a high-risk environment for the use of these drugs, it is of upmost importance to develop preventive measures in the environment and to study their effects The work is conducted by STAD in close collaboration with fitness centers and other cooperation partners. The project has a governing body which includes representatives from various fitness centers, the Stockholm Sports Federation, the County Police Chiefs office, Haninge local police, the County Administrative Board of Stockholm, Environmental Department for the City of Stockholm, Sports Administration City of Stockholm, Haninge Municipality, the Anti-Doping squad and STAD. The governing body of the project meets 3-4 times per year. Training and Education.
