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.

Good article on the possible causes of low-T and good suggestions on how to address it.  If you need another reason to stop using plastic bottles, here it is:

 

 

From the article:


The million dollar question is why are so many young men having inadequate hormone levels and what can a person do to prevent this problem? There are many theories on what causes this problem and one of them is someone getting too much exposer to something known as BPA or bisphenol A.


This BPA stuff is inside plastic that is used in water bottles; it's used on the outside of cans and leftover containers.

In a study done in China they tested two groups of men.


One group was constantly exposed to BPA for six months and the other group was not. The end result was that the group that was exposed to this chemical had lower testosterone levels, a lower sperm count and more love making problems.


To protect yourself do not heat anything in plastic, this includes the microwave. Reduce the amount of canned food you consume, don't drink out of plastic bottles and use glass containers to store food.

If you focus on eating the way humans have been eating for thousands of years not only will this improve your testosterone, but will do so many wonders for your health.

Some great tips on how to retain muscle mass while trying to burn fat.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, November 21, 2013 8:17 PM

Excellent information here, no matter how long you have been bodybuilding.  Sometimes it's not about learning something new, it's remembering what we forget...

 

For example:

 

1. Low Calories = Muscle loss
Having your calories too low is the number one cause of muscle loss. To keep your muscle in an anabolic (muscle protecting) environment, it is optimal to lose weight slowly. No more than 2lbs should be lost each week. If more than this is lost, your body will enter a catabolic (muscle wasting) state. As the correct calorie intake is by far the most important factor for keeping your muscle size; scales, calories, foods and waterintake must be monitored. The reason for keeping your foods and water intake the same each day is to stop the scales from fluctuating due to glycogen/water inside the muscle cells. This can make you think you are actually losing fat, when in fact you have just lost a little water. To weigh yourself effectively, do so every morning before eating.

An amazing story about the benefits of exercise and bodybuilding!  Wow! 

 

From the post:

 

Mrs Bradley said: ‘It was amazing to be able to walk down the aisle – I nearly ran it. I had no pain whatsoever and felt so confident. My GP is completely amazed and can’t believe the difference in me.

 

‘My condition got so severe, it would hurt if I sneezed or moved my toes. I needed assistance for everything, even moving in bed.

Mrs Bradley was diagnosed with syringomyelia in 2009 after suffering years of chronic back pain and shaking in her legs.

 

It causes cysts to develop in her spinal cord causing pain, muscle weakness and even paralysis

An excellent reminder for fitness coaches to draw firm boundaries for their clients and for exercisers to choose professional trainers.

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.

"Codes Of Ethics In Exercise And Fitness."

According to the author, Heather Hitchcock, It is best to demonstrate how personal trainers should behave professionally, which abide by the code of ethics. Portraying professional manners toward each client as well as a building a professional relationship. It is important that we maintain the client's best interest such as their safety and health. Overall, all personal trainers should abide the code of ethics by staying within the scope of practice.

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.
