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.

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.

Nick Cangialosi's curator insight, March 9, 2013 12:35 PM

This is a great article to show the importance of qualification as a trainer. Being a trainer is not about the money, it is about helping individuals reach their goals to get healthy, and feel better about themselves. We must be qualified as trainers because customers trust us with their bodies, this is very personal.
