When a Personal Trainer Gets Too Personal

When a Personal Trainer Gets Too Personal | Colossians 3:23 Center | 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.

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

Gage Wesley's curator insight, January 8, 2014 2:02 AM
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.
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.

In Ontario, lifetime memberships in fitness clubs are illegal; contracts must end after one year.

MaryGrace Balaban's insight:

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.

Good Youth Sports Coaches Teach, Model and Demand Sportsmanship, Fairness and Respectful Behavior

Good Youth Sports Coaches Teach, Model and Demand Sportsmanship, Fairness and Respectful Behavior | Colossians 3:23 Center | Scoop.it
Good youth sports coaches teach, model, and demand respectful behavior, fairness and sportsmanship by athletes.

 

As a society we would not find it acceptable if teachers encouraged their students to cheat on tests. Youth sports should be no different. Existing programs to teach athletes moral ethics and to help coaches to teach moral ethics should be expanded and instituted in every community to teach decision-making, sportsmanship, competitive integrity, inspiring through leadership, justice and competitive responsibility.

Good coaches are alert to the possibility of bullying and proactively seek ways to reduce it. Similarly, a good coach teaches and models respect for the opposing team and game officials.

 

Coaches should be able to accept bad calls by umpires, refs and other sports officials (remember, most of them are volunteers, too)and mistakes by players without a public display of emotion or of dissatisfaction

MaryGrace Balaban's insight:

This makes me grateful for the outstanding coaches I have known. To all coaches, from up-and-coming aspirants to seasoned veterans, may this serve as a guideline for how you lead your youngsters.

Honor and Integrity - Adirondack Rangers Blog | Colossians 3:23 Center | Scoop.it

"No words can hurt a team, or a player, more than the addition of “no” in front of the word “Honor” and” poor” in front of the word “integrity.”  In our sport of airsoft, Honor and Integrity make up Sportsmanship. No honor and Poor Integrity equals Poor Sportsmanship. Good Sportsmanship means everything to those who have it and Poor Sportsmanship haunts those who have lost it.

 

In a sport where Honor and Integrity have a unique meaning between players and teams, the ability of players to trust those..."

In a society saturated scandal, fraud, and misconduct, we pay little attention to entities that promote qualities like honor in their game. This refreshingly competitive, yet integrity-bound does just that.

The opening couple lines say it all.  They talk about airsoft, but the principle applies throughout all sports.

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.

Should all high school sports kids be tested for steroids?  You make the call.

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.
