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.

It seems to me that listening to your trainer is a great idea. A trainer will know what they are doing when they ask you as a client to do an exercise or activity you might not normally do or might think is silly. Is it right to argue or complain excessively?

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.

Sara M Hall's curator insight, November 10, 2014 7:57 PM

In his article, Coach Long brings up many good points on how ethics should be in youth sports. In his article he doesn't go to say winning is bad, but the way winning is glorified and taught is wrong. Long also points out how playing a game with no score does not make sense either, playing and teaching youth sports is a way to find a balance between winning, having fun, and teaching young athletes about sports in a healthy way. Allowing students to grow and learn life lessons through sports, and most importantly allowing them to learn to have fun. I really think Long did a fantastic job at helping coaches of young athletes get back to the basic ethics and good morals of what youth sports should be about.

Jayme Dannen-Deal's curator insight, April 16, 2015 11:01 PM

This is a great article - as coaches we need to remember that we are role models and there are so many more important things that just winning. 

Christopher Baldwin's curator insight, June 12, 2015 11:53 AM

The following article explains the importance of understanding ethics in youth sports. This article also explains trends among youth sports today such as "winning at all costs" and the importance of sportsmanship.

Sporting ethics is huge deal, you can get anybody to go out there and coach and yell and do ridiculous things and think that its okay because you have wins, but teams are looking for coaches that have good ethics because it just puts a better face on the team rather then someone who is getting in trouble for cheating and etc.

Gary M's curator insight, November 3, 2014 2:59 PM

Comparing, exchanging, and collaborating the standards of ethics within coaching internationally will give us all insight on how athletes or anyone at that matter is being treated, trained, and/or if there is any authority abuse going on by the coaches. - GARY M.
