This article shows how money does change people in the world of sports. Athletes used to just be happy to play the game and now they will do whatever it takes to get paid more and make that money. I like the example of Ali. He was retired and out of shape yet offered a new fight and he accepted based on the money offer. It just shows that money can make up peoples minds even if their personal ethics are based on good moral intentions.

Money may really be the root of all evil!

"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.

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.

'The Biggest Loser' a big turnoff - University of Alberta

'The Biggest Loser' a big turnoff - University of Alberta | Sports Ethics: Byrd, C. | Scoop.it

(Edmonton) The Biggest Loser might be a TV ratings winner, but its extreme depiction of exercise is more likely to turn people off than get them off the couch, according to new research from the University of Alberta.

 

Researchers in the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation found that watching a short video clip of The Biggest Loser fuelled negative attitudes toward exercise, raising further questions about how physical activity is shown in the popular media.

 

“The depictions of exercise on shows like The Biggest Loser are really negative,” said lead author Tanya Berry, Canada Research Chair in Physical Activity Promotion. “People are screaming and crying and throwing up, and if you’re not a regular exerciser you might think this is what exercise is—that it’s this horrible experience where you have to push yourself to the extremes and the limits, which is completely wrong.”

"Codes Of Ethics In Exercise And Fitness."

According to the author, Heather Hitchcock, It is best to demonstrate how personal trainers should behave professionally, which abide by the code of ethics. Portraying professional manners toward each client as well as a building a professional relationship. It is important that we maintain the client's best interest such as their safety and health. Overall, all personal trainers should abide the code of ethics by staying within the scope of practice.

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.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:17 PM

Based on this article, I've learned that you need to be patient and have proper ettiquette in order to be successful with the people that you're training.

America's children are stuck with the food we give them. It's about time we accept our responsibility to protect our youth from the many problems associate with poor diet and obesity. 

Fortunately childhood obesity rates are dropping in cities that just happen to have strong nutrition policies. 

This is one of the few areas big Brother really should be looking out for the little man....

Jordyn Saxton's curator insight, April 26, 2015 10:52 PM

New York city and Los Angles, along with a string of smaller cities are finally seeing that childhood obesity rates dropped for the first time. Los Angles's rates dropped 3 percent while New York and Philadelphia both reported decline around 5 percent. Childhood Obesity problems are usually focused in the Metropolitan areas. Mayor Micheal Bloomberg of New York recently banned the sales of of sugary drinks above 16 ounces. First lady Michelle Obama has made childhood her personal cause of her case. If the states of American health remains the same, the number of children with type 2 diabetes is projected to rise 50 percent by 2050, while children struggle with weight problems will most likely to suffer from heart problems and strokes as adults.( As cited by Aviva Shen 2012)
