Personal Trainer Behind “Steroids Ireland” Facebook Page Still Has Not Paid His Stay-Out-of-Jail Fine
November 18th, 2018



Personal trainer Agris Bremsmits could go to jail after all if he doesn’t pay the fine by January 2019.


Agris Bremsmits, the personal trainer who operated the now-defunct “Steroids Ireland” Facebook page, was given a chance to avoid jail last year when he pleaded guilty to multiple charges related to steroid trafficking. All Bremsmits had to due was pay a “stay out of jail fine” of €5,000.

Most convicted steroid dealers would jump at the chance to keep their freedom and avoid incarceration. But Bremsmits is not like most convicted steroid dealers. The 34-year old personal trainer is apparently in no hurry to pay the fine.

Bremsmits was given 12 months to pay the fine during an October 23, 2017 ruling. But Bremsmits did not pay up. He was consequently summoned to explain his failure to pay at a hearing before the Dublin District Court on November 15, 2018.

Bremsmits sat silently while his defense attorney Matthew Holmes begged Judge John Brennan for more time to pay. Irish judges must be some big softies because Judge Brennan had no problem extending the payment deadline – at least until the next court hearing in January 2019.

Bremsmits maintains employement as a personal trainer

We are not sure why Bremsmits has not paid the reasonable fine. A steroid trafficking conviction could conceivably harm an individual’s future job prospects. But the Latvian-born personal trainer seems to have done well over the past year in spite of his conviction.

Bremsmits is a member of the Conquer Sports Supplement personal training team. As a “Conquer Nutrition & Personal Trainer”, Bremsmits consults clients at local gyms like Verve Gyms Swords. He has also been listed as a part-time personal trainer for Fit4Less Finglass.

This may be somewhat surprising since Bremsmits ordered large quantities of anabolic steroids from Bulgaria and had them shipped to his previous employer.

Customs officer seized the shipments which contained 287 vials of injectable steroids and 3,351 tablets of various pharmaceuticals which were address to the gym where Bremsmits worked in 2017. Bremsmit also used the gym address to route customer payments.

Bremsmits probably hoped the use of the gym address would provide a layer of protection from getting busted by the police. It didn’t.

Bremsits was caught after the mother of one of his 18-year old customers filed a complaint concerning his “Steroids Ireland” Facebook page with the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA). It didn’t take long for HPRA investigators to finger Bremsmits as the operator of the page.

Bremsmits pleaded guilty to nine counts of supplying medicines without a prescription or marketing authorisation and for advertising and supplying anabolic steroid containing medicines.

Even more baffling that this guy is playing with having to go to jail over such a small amount when he is apparently still selling out of his new gym; still has not learned his lesson it would appear...

Reported December 18th 2018
https://www.rte.ie/news/investigations-unit/2018/1211/1016516-steroid-ireland/

"A few weeks ago an undercover researcher from RTÉ Investigates booked a training session with Mr Bremsmits in the Finglas gym.

Within 20 minutes of meeting him at the training session, Agris Bremsmits offered to sell the researcher steroids.

A meeting outside the gym was arranged for later to hand over the cash."

Wow. How the FUCK do you get a government offer of €5,000 to not go to jail over steroid trafficking, and NOT pay it over two years?!
Is there a steroid out there that destroys brain cells rapidly? I don't think you can get any dumber than this.

The only plausible solution I have, is that he needs just a little more cash to fuck off and flee to a country that doesn't give a shit.

Steroids are 100% legal to possess in Ireland. Im pretty sure no one in Ireland has ever gone to prision for any steroid related offenses. Buddy of mine was caught with 6ish grands worth and got a €1000 fine and a conviction. You can safely possess a 6 month supply with no worries even if there found in the glovebox of your car.
