This article gives great insight into the codes of ethics for personal trainers.

Brent Moore's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:23 PM

Personal training is a growing field with little regulation. The professional personal trainer must develop his personal and professional ethics in a way that protects the client and the trainer from harm and legal action. Many certifying agencies have their own code of ethics to help personal trainers conduct themselves in an ethical manner.
