Doping In Sports

Good Essays
GNC is a company that helps support the idea of athletes, people in general, gaining the right enhancement in their overly physicality and health. During the last few years the controversy of “doping” and “drugging” in sports shot to an all-time high. The issues behind athletes being completely all natural in their athleticism has become critical due to the cases of outstanding athletes in certain sports. Athletes such as Lance Armstrong (Professional Cycling),
Marion Jones (Olympic Track and Field), or even Alex Rodriguez aka “A-Rod” (Major League
Baseball) being completely or close to completely shut down in their sports from the fact of being caught using illegal drugs and/or steroids. Due to this factor GNC in the previous years, and even

Supplements Over Steroids anything but it fully up to themselves to make the decision of what route they want to take. The real standalone color is red which pops out over all the settle and dull colors to show people to go ahead and do what they need to do to get right. Also the color red shows involvement by having the quotes written in red to help make the power in the quotes pop out too. Many of times steroids are displayed in various vibrant hues all over the places. Therefore, these colors all work together to make Figure 1 and 2 support GNC and their vision by making their supplements have more simplicity compared to what steroids are viewed as.
To further my argument, Figure 1 shows a side of credibility. The person and quote being promoted are from Mark Wahlberg. Mark Wahlberg is a well-known actor around-the-world. He has done many roles that required him to get built up for the parts to make them seem more realistic. Such as his role in the movie “The Fighter”, dealing with a boxer. He trained for a

GNC even uses Chad Gregory, a famous natural body builder, to quote he uses these supplements for his training. By all this information given it allows the persuasion to deepen for people viewing this ad. It makes one think that by buying this supplement they definitely will not regret it. Figure 2 shows that it makes sense by adding the fact that you will get “…100% increase in exercise efficiency.” Basically, everything in this product makes it right for you to obtain it.
In my conclusion, Figure 1 and 2 projects the mission and vison of GNC very well. They allow people to be drawn in by the simple color theme of GNC but the very powerful symbolization of the colors. The Figures promote the products by very distinct people in the world that others could/can look up too. They also give key facts that people need to better understand what GNC is putting out. Keeping in mind that GNC is for natural supplements that give way to gain over illegal steroids that give a fake, quick, not natural way gain. Also by showing that enhancement in yourself just doesn’t come from the things you put in your body

All the way back in 1865, “canal swimmers in Amsterdam and Holland were the first competitive athletes charged with doping” (ProQuest staff).
