“Personal Training: Ethics/Scope of Practice”


Via L.alejandrino, Sports Ethics: Grant, E
Gage Wesley's insight:

What this article said was basically the overall objective of becoming a personal trainer. You need to have a good realtionship with your client and need to have a plan in order to make their goals a reality. And in order to do so, you need to keep them motivated by getting them into the routine and keeping track of their results. Once they see change, they will be more inclined to keep going and to keep you around as their personal trainer.

When a Personal Trainer Gets Too Personal

When a Personal Trainer Gets Too Personal | Exercise Science Research | Scoop.it

"WHEN Shibani Joshi walked into a Manhattan branch of the New York Sports Club last summer, all she wanted was a more toned body and a distraction from the job-hunting that occupied her days."

 

Personal Trainers need to maintain boundaries and keep it professional.

Gage Wesley's insight:
In this article, I learned that in order to be a successful personal trainer, you need give yourself and you client confidence, but just the right amount. You need to remember that you need to maintain certain boundaries with your client so that they can feel comfortable with you and want to continue to work with you. This will help build a healthy friendship and environment that makes it easier on everyone.

An excellent reminder for fitness coaches to draw firm boundaries for their clients and for exercisers to choose professional trainers.

Dominick Caiazzo's curator insight, June 15, 2014 1:07 PM

Good example of the situation that could arise from poor ethical decisions.

Aaron Cruz's curator insight, February 15, 2015 7:02 PM

Trainers need to understand the personal boundaries between trainer and client. A strong personal ethical code is important to counteract a lack of professional ethics, regarding these situations.

This article helped me by putting me in someone elses shoes. Instead of reading about how I could become a better personal trainer myself, I read about what the patient wants for themselves. You need to look at it from their perspective so that you can see where they're coming from.

Gage Wesley's insight:

This article was very useful. I learned that I needed to ask myself if I was the right person to become a personal trainer. Do i really want to help others? Or do I want to do it for myself?  You need to be a positive role model to reflect that on your clients. After that, you need to earn a certificate in order to label yourself as a personal trainer. Then you would need to find job at a local fitness club or gym.

In this article, I learned that your clients or what some would call peers, need to trust and accept you in order to see the best results possible. Even though you may have a degree, continued research is still appreciated within the community of physical therapy.

Since becoming a personal trainer is one of my aspirations, this article on ethics in exercise and fitness and what personal trainers guidelines are was extremely helpful!

Missouri Ludlum's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:47 PM

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.

Via Lusia Murey
Gage Wesley's insight:

This was another article that told me about how I should put myself in your clients shoes. You need to motivate them in order for them to be successful and create a plan so that they can get into a routine. Another thing is nutrition. It'll be tough, but a diet is probably one of the most important things to do for yourself when trying to get into shape. You need to help them stay committed.
