The study also focused on relationship between coaches and their athletes, showed leadership and coaches influence processes. The study was a qualitative study that used interviews to collect data from the respondents. A total of eight interviews were performed. The results showed that leaders in different sports have different attitudes about dietary supplements. Where endurance athletes distinguished between protein and carbohydrate supplementation, vitamin and mineral  supplementation, and was therefore more acceptive against the type of supplementations which was more frequently used. Furthermore, a majority of the interviewed coaches believed that dietary supplementation was not neccessary if a balanced diet was consumed. Moreover, coaches can influence their athletes if they possess right traits, behaviours or are in the right situation.
