Bryan Miller was a 2013 CrossFit Games individual athlete and compete on CrossFit Invictus at the 2014 Games. In 2016, Miller was attempting to qualify as an individual once again. This time, however, Miller says he was on steroids.
In an Instagram post yesterday, Miller admitted to taking steroids during the 2014 CrossFit Regionals. According to Miller, he was on a 12-week cycle of testosterone cypionate.
The reason for taking steroids? Miller said, “The main reason I did it was to see the results firsthand, use the knowledge I gained for any future endeavors, but mostly to make this post, and to chase the Crossfit💰, (didn’t work 😂).”
Miller would end up finishing 11th at the California Regional.

#fbf to when I did a 12 week cycle of testosterone cypionate. Steroids work just in case you were wondering. The main reason I did it was to see the results firsthand, use the knowledge I gained for any future endeavors, but mostly to make this post, and to chase the Crossfit💰, (didn’t work 😂) For me 12 weeks was perfect, 8-12 weeks is a good place to start, with 2-3x the amount off if planning on returning to another cycle. Long term wellness is more important to me now, chasing numbers/times/weights/etc only takes you so far before you run into a wall and your body starts giving out, forget specialization, be good at everything. Well balanced fitness is what I’m after now, and steroids are not a part of that plan for me, but that’s ok if they are for you. Steroids can and do have side effects but one good thing is that the balls return to normal size. Impotence, hornyness, hair loss, and excess ego are common side effects. Wish I didn’t have to keep it a secret until now but as I was competing I couldn’t afford to get caught for obvious reasons 💰. Unfortunately steroids are a part of competitive sports, and that includes every sport. I’m sure I was the only Crossfit games winner who tried them 😂 . It’s not cheating if you think other people are doing it toooooooooooooooooooooo.l • #2014champ #2016cycle #moveyour🍑 #onsteroids #yolo
Three years later, Miller said his priorities are different now as he cares more about long-term wellness rather than chasing “numbers/times/weights/etc”.
Since this post, Miller has posted several unrelated posts on Instagram. One of which appears that he is dealing with some personal things and family turmoil.
