Just wanted an edge? This body builder got a lot more than that.

Donald Magnuson's curator insight, January 19, 2014 6:10 PM

This YouTube video spotlights a growing problem, with steroid use filtering down from the professional ranks to high school athletes.  It shows the ethical difficulty in dealing with steroids, as not everyone agrees that it is wrong or bad for your body.

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 16, 2014 1:15 PM

The use of steroids is quiet popular. Especially in the program that are not being tested for the use of steroids. Most high schools do not test for steroid use and most junior colleges do not. Although this video shows that there is  a clear addiction to the drug and negative effects that come along as a result of using the drugs. Even if it is not caught now years down the road it can come back to harm one.

Ethical education for athletes is important. It isn't about being popular and famous but also to act accordingly. (Social Responsibility)

This code of ethics for Fitness Instructors is pretty complete. It even mentions the right ethical decision of displaying the correct credentials at all times to their employers and clients. Can you imagine the mess that would be made if a Fitness Instructor was not certified to train in Cross Fit, but he lied to a client for extra money and in turn the client ended up hurt because they weren't training properly? What a mess that would be.

Attention Group 1!!

(and anyone else interested)

This is a good resource for developing a code of conduct and basic fitness center rules. Be sure to check it out. 

Steven Moodie's curator insight, October 17, 2015 6:33 PM

This is a great overview about the basic responsibility for a personal trainer. Although it is general, one reading this should get that treating all clients equally, not only means not discriminating against physical appearance or life style, but also financial status. One should also charge the same amount for each service provided, no matter the client.

The less glamorous, yet just as vital, part of fitness - the membership contract and fees. Potential gym owners and managers, listen up to avoid others' unethical craftiness.
