While personal trainer is not on my bucket list, I do plan on working one on one with people who may have been injured in a sporting accident. This blog gave me a view of ethics that I may encounter in my future profession.

Matthew John Butcher's curator insight, May 18, 2014 9:19 PM

This article consists of six primary ethical codes that are all focused around being the ideal personal trainer.

Chris Perkins's curator insight, August 17, 2014 5:59 PM

This article takes the code of ethics from the IDEA and explains them. Very good article for anyone in the personal training industry.

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.

The practice of coaches disciplining their teams by making them run is as old as sport itself. Now, the time-honored punishment is under attack after some say coaches in an Iowa school district went too far.

This is a form of punishment that happens quiet often. Many times because it is a quick solution at the moment to the problem. Although, it accomplishes nothing. I know of softball pitchers that had to run if they walked the first batter and on their performance of pitching. What did this accomplish? Nothing, but putting pressure on a pitcher to perform and many times this had a negative effect.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:49 PM

The punishment should fit the crime, if there really was one, this is were personal ethics, due to being the head coach of the varsity team and the low morals surrounding it,  get in the way of being professional. This can ruin a coach if they don't keep their heads on strait and keep a cool head at the same time.

Always check credentials, if it doesn't sound right, it's probably not.

Chris Perkins's curator insight, August 17, 2014 6:14 PM

Explaining what trainers do wrong is a great way to weed out the trainers with no ethics. One of the biggest parts of being a trainer is to cater to your client. Give them what they need not what you need. Focus solely on that client and what works for them. This is all a part of being an ethical trainer and following the code of ethics.

This is a prime example of what kids today emulate. If the parents are doing it, then why is it not for the children?

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:12 PM

Coaching ethics not only comes from the coach but also comes from the first coach an individual has that is their parents. Parents should also be within the guidelines of Ethics and morals in sports and in life.

David Foster's curator insight, April 27, 2015 8:01 AM

A great article of how not act as a coach, parent, or player. It is up to the management to ensure that all ethical behavior is being followed and kept honorable.
