Rick Collins To Speak At The 5th Annual Asia Fitness Convention

Collins Travels to Thailand to Lead Seminar on Steroids and the Law at Sold-Out Event

Rick Collins, an internationally recognized authority on performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), anabolic steroids and the law, will be presenting at the upcoming Asia Fitness Convention – joining with leaders in the health and fitness community from around the world at this important international conference.  The 2013 Asia Fitness Convention takes place from October 11th – 13th at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre in Bangkok, Thailand – one of the top five exhibition and conference centers in the Asia Pacific region.

Rick’s presentation — “Steroids, Performance and the Law – The Truth Unveiled”— will present a look behind the headlines and international scandals of the modern PED “arms race” in competitive sports.  In the seminar, Rick will dissect the universe of ethical, legal and scientific issues raised by the athletic use of anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing dietary supplements, presenting everything coaches, trainers, nutritionists, athletes, fans and ordinary consumers need to know.  His presentation is sponsored by the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) – the only non-profit academic society dedicated to promoting the science and application of evidence-based sports nutrition and supplementation and considered the world’s leading resource in sports nutrition education.  Rick is a Fellow of the ISSN, a member of the ISSN Advisory Board and the ISSN Legal Advisor.

The 2013 Asia Fitness Convention – which this year is a sold-out event – gathers fitness, sports and physical education specialists and enthusiasts from across the Asia Pacific region to provide them with the latest information and insight to help them with professional development opportunities.  The three-day event will feature more than 140 sessions and more than 50 world class presenters, and has grown to be Asia’s largest fitness convention.

This year’s convention – titled “Engage, Empower, Enable – Build Lasting Results on Strong Foundations” — represents the AFC’s fifth year.  Noting an incredibly rapid development of the fitness industry in the region, the AFC continues to be committed to raising the bar by improving standards in the Asian fitness industry.  In addition to the presentations and seminars, the convention will feature workshops, workouts and health/fitness demonstrations, as well as provide networking opportunities with industry leaders from around the world.

Rick is honored and excited to have been chosen to be part of this year’s AFC and is looking forward to bringing his insight and expertise in anabolic steroids and the law to this new audience at this important event.  Check back for photos and details about Rick’s presentation in Bangkok – and for more information about Rick, visitwww.rickcollins.com  or visit his law firm website at www.cmgesq.com.    In addition, for information about the 2013 Asia Fitness Convention, visit www.asia-fitness.com.
