A bodybuilder who freely admits his gains aren't natural and are the result of steroid use has said he's "sick of fake influencers" who won't admit they're using PEDs (performance enhancing drugs).
In a video posted to YouTube, Noel Deyzel called on PED-using influencers to admit what they're doing and stop misleading young and vulnerable people for financial gain.
"It's too common to see lies for sale of workout and diet plans, even supplements. And when these beginners do buy and apply this advice, most of the time it doesn't work how they expect," said Deyzel.
"Too many influencers are chasing money and profiting off of vulnerability," he added.
Deyzel says that because he has a young audience he would never disclose what type of gear he uses, but he's been dismayed to see other 'influencers' promoting steroid usage on platforms with predominantly young audiences like TikTok.
"I've seen people promoting steroid cycles for younger audiences on TikTok, and that just isn't okay," he said.
"The fitness industry has some of the most supportive and good people I've come by, and at the same time, some of the most arrogant, self absorbed people with hidden agendas."
While Deyzel isn't prepared to name names and out any PED-using influencers, he says they should be aware of the harm they're doing and people should be wary about which bodybuilding and fitness influencers they put their faith into.
"The term influence means to have an effect on the character or development of someone," said Deyzel. "Be mindful of who you follow and be careful of who you let influence you."
