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.

Just wanted an edge? This body builder got a lot more than that.

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.

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.

Missouri Ludlum's curator insight, April 15, 2013 4:47 PM

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.
