what constitutes cheating?  what are your ethical morals and values when enhancing performance?  how far do you go to succeed without encountering ethical issues?

Matthew John Butcher's curator insight, May 18, 2014 9:44 PM

This is a truly interesting article because it draws a theoretical line being ethical and non-ethical views on performance-enchancing methods.  It includes examples of what is acceptable and what isn't.

Here is an article with questionable ethics on both sides of the coin, the athlete and the supplier.  The athlete wants to get farther in the stats book and the supplier wants a fatter wallet, it doean't matter the methods for obtaining these goals.

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.

Renee Anne Shirley's curator insight, January 19, 2014 12:35 PM

IMO athletes believe that the odds of getting caught cheating are significantly less than the rewards to be gained from doping...until we can lessen the odds we will continue to lose the war! In this video Prof Arne Ljungqvist provides insights into some high-profile doping scandals, including the Ben Johnson scandal and Balco affair. 

Donald Magnuson's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:43 PM

Despite several high profile cases in the last few years, it is clear that athletes are still willing to risk their careers for the artificial gains from doping and steroids.  Stepping outside the rules for a competitive advantage raises ethical questions for the athletes, their trainers and coaches, and even national team officials and politicians, who see athletic success as proving national superiority.

No matter the punishment professional athletes continue to take the risk with steroids and other performance enhancing drugs

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company | Sports Ethics: Ramper, T. | Scoop.it

CORAL GABLES -- Glue still stains the stucco wall of the Coral Gables office plaza where Biogenesis once operated.

 

Just a few hundred yards across US-1, the University of Miami baseball team practiced on a sunny Tuesday afternoon.

 

The association between the now-closed anti-aging clinic linked to steroids and an assistant for the proud UM baseball program was called into question by a story published Tuesday by the Miami New Times. In it, several big Major League Baseball names including Miami resident Alex Rodriguez were listed on a client list for illegal performance enhancing drugs.

 

Jimmy Goins, UM baseball's assistant strength and conditioning coach since 2004, was also listed on client lists obtained by the newspaper as among those receiving banned substances. His profile was removed from the list of coaches on UM's official athletic website Tuesday afternoon.

When contacted by phone, Goins said he was still employed by the university but referred all questions to his attorney, Gordon Fenderson.

 

"He hasn't done anything wrong either personally or as a representative of the University of Miami," said Fenderson, an attorney specializing in DUI defense with offices in Jacksonville and Coral Gables. "And as far as being on a client list of a certain doctor, any connection of the University of Miami or their baseball program would be purely coincidental."

 

Major League Baseball investigators have been on the UM campus in recent weeks interviewing school officials, sources with knowledge of baseball's probe said. But Fenderson said his client has not been contacted by investigators from either MLB or the NCAA.

 

Two former UM star players were also listed as clients on the spreadsheet obtained by the Miami New Times of alleged Biogenesis PED clients. Pitcher Cesar Carrillo (2004-05) and Yasmani Grandal (2008-10) were named, but the report didn't state when they allegedly received PEDs from Biogenesis...
