Anti-Doping Norway - Kristoffer Loftheim
While most of our work at the Taylor Hooton Foundation take place in the United States, that doesn’t mean that the use of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances isn't happening world wide. The desire to achieve your physical goals creates pressures that are universal. So in this episode we will be heading to Norway to talk with Kristoffer Loftheim, the Advisor to Fitness Centers at Anti-Doping Norway. Anti-Doping Nowary is a Non-Profit Organization established in 2003 to ensure that doping controls and prosecution activities for doping cases are organized independently from The Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (NOC) and the Norwegian Government. They also deal with doping issues in a broad perspective through programs addressing the challenges of doping in society and as a growing youth problem.
In this episode we talk to Kristoffer to learn more about Anti-Doping Norway, his work with the fitness centers across the country, and the issues they are seeing in Norway to see how it compares to the issues we face here in the United States. Since he works outside of the national competition side of the organization, we focus our talk on societal and recreational use done for both performance and appearance reasons. Most importantly we discuss how they are using education, just as we are, to spread much needed information in the area of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances.
