Classes can be a dangerous fad to follow

Classes can be a dangerous fad to follow | Sports Ethics: Cangialosi, Nicholas | Scoop.it

GROUP exercise has become far and away the fastest-growing trend in Australia's fitness industry, and it's easy to see why. You're guaranteed intensity, variety, structure and the expertise of a qualified instructor to see you through your workout. But with so many schools and styles of group exercise to choose from, how can you tell which is best suited for you? While all the purported benefits of group exercise may hold plenty of appeal, they could be doing you harm.

 

Staple indoor group classes such as Pump and Step, while hugely popular, are certainly not appropriate for everyone. Let's ruffle some feathers and discuss why. Pump classes, generally the most popular in any mainstream gym, are a concoction of super high-volume resistance training with a dash of bodyweight endurance training. On paper, Pump appears to be an ideal amalgamation of strength, endurance, fat burning and muscular toning. The combination of multiple muscle-group barbell exercises with upper and lower bodyweight movements makes for a great foundation of functional strength and calorie burning. However, while the principles of Pump are great, the reality is not so squeaky clean.

Harry Hanson, founder of the American Academy of Personal Training, says that sometimes friendships can get in the way of successful training sessions.
Nick Cangialosi's insight:

When you work one on one with indivuduals, often you can become very close to them. A lot of the time trainers will be looked at as somewhat of a psycologist for the client. This is because they are pushing the body, endorphines are released, and a perons self worth is often determined from self image. Being put in this theruputic rold, a personal trainer should be someone with moral and ethical values.

Nick Cangialosi's insight:

This is a great article to show the importance of qualification as a trainer. Being a trainer is not about the money, it is about helping individuals reach their goals to get healthy, and feel better about themselves. We must be qualified as trainers because customers trust us with their bodies, this is very personal.

Individuals currently practice personal training without certification or with unrecognized certs but will imposing high restrictions, costs and taxes positively affect ethical behavior?
