With all the negative news in the world, it is always great to see that some people really take advantage of their station in life to set an example for our younger generations to follow.

It's good to read about an athlete who is a good example to others.

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.

Attention Group 1!!

(and anyone else interested)

This is a good resource for developing a code of conduct and basic fitness center rules. Be sure to check it out. 

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.

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.

Ethics are a vital part of sports and there is a lack of ethics in some of our players today.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:08 PM

This article has some good points about how the game and sports industry has turned into money. I feel this author is just venting about how they are using money and turning players into money hungry athletes. However, it is true some players will not even sign with a team over a couple of million dollars. This is crazy, many people would give their left arm for just one million dollars and here they are complaining that they are not paid enough. It should be about playing the sport because they love it and want to be a good role model not just to make millions and move on with life.

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:10 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article regarding ethics in athletes. Players are acting like children when they are supposed to be role models and professional leaders in an organization.  This article encompasses several situations where it involves baseball players spitting on each other, football owners building the biggest stadiums and players robbing banks. Where are their ethics and morals for the future athletes to emulate?  


My sister's friend met their classmate, who was a professional baseball player, at a professional baseball game.  After the game, there was a meet and greet for the fans.  His friends screamed out his name and he  ignored them as he continued to sign on the merchandise and walked away.  They never had a chance to talk to him and he never gave them the time or day.  Some may say, maybe he didn't remember them? When you start screaming out your High School team and friend's names, you never forget.
