I like this - have to borrow it!
Alexander Ellis's curator insight, February 16, 2014 12:43 PM

Personal and professional respect and courtesy is highly valued in this field because physical contact with a stranger is required at times.  If clients are not comfortable with their trainer/therapist, the business will fall quickly.

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.

Marcus Ford's curator insight, December 17, 2012 10:23 AM

Is it ethical to offer a certification that does not teach the fundamentals necessary to train people? Even more ethically concerning is whether or not trainers with "unrecognized" certifications should practice at all? Are these trainers putting people at risk?

Willam Rice's curator insight, November 12, 2013 11:28 AM

All coaches should be aware of how to safeguard themselves from situations that might put them at risk of unwarranted accusations. Good article

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 16, 2014 12:46 PM

Athletes are influenced very easily by their coaches. There is a thing line that a coach must not cross when working with individuals especially with athletes of the opposite sex. Texting individuals has become a code of ethics concern when texting involves just one individual. I feel that group text that involve practice or games concerns should be fine. 

Adam Odell's curator insight, July 20, 2014 3:10 PM

Coaches should maintain a professional level with all individuals of the team.
