Time for baseball's code of ethics to go away | Ethics in Sports Wenzel D | Scoop.it
Throughout sports, athletes are celebrating their wondrous deeds with shouts, elaborate gestures and dance routines. If a player gets so full of himself that he really does "show up" the other team - say, a crotch-grab or unloading a wad of spit - he should fear for his safety.

A new perspective on contra-indicated exercises.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:32 PM

Ffrom this article, I've learned that in order to be a successful personal trainer, you need to know the history of your client. Whether it's a terminal illness, or physical problems they may have. This will be helpful so you can tell them what to avoid whilst exercising and to prevent further injury.
