Unethical behavior for sure.

matthew hartley's curator insight, August 18, 2013 3:29 PM

This is a great example of a horrible coach and person with no professional ethics.

Manuel Barnett's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:45 PM

Professionalism at all times as a coach is must. Parents are trusting you with their children be them boys or girls, and they expect nothing but the utmost professionalism at all times. This is a prime example of where ethics on both the personal and professional level failed.

What Role Does Ethics Play in Sports?

What Role Does Ethics Play in Sports? | Ethics in Personal Training and Sports | Scoop.it

Distinguishing between gamesmanship and sportsmanship...

 

This article summs up some general guidelines when it comes to how coaches and players should act.  There is a seperation between gamesmanship and sportsmanship.  In gamesmanship, the mentality is winning is everything and the ends justify the means, whereas sportsmanship is based off of respect and integrity. 

 

An example is taking a "flop".  It isn't cheating, but it can be looked at as cheating.  And it can be considered violating sportsmanship and ethics in the sport.   Yes, it supports gamesmanship to win at all costs, but what about fairness and integrity in the game and/or sport? 

 

To combat that, recently, the NBA has started to fine players who take flops and iolate the integrity of the game?  Is this a good idea or bad for business?  Only time and ratings will tell, but I think it is a good step in bringing back sportsmanship in professional sports.

It should be the main role. Ethics should trump winning at all costs, but we all know that is just not the way it is.

Kelly Poggensee-Wei's curator insight, October 13, 2013 12:43 PM

Ethics plays a strong role in the world of sports. Someone with a good code of ethics is fair, respectful, has integrity, and responsible. It goes along with leadership because when you are someone that is in charge and setting an example for others it's important to set a precedent for what is right from wrong. When I'm working in sports when I get out of college I want to be someone who believes in doing the right thing no matter what the situation might be.

A part of the ethics of personal trainers are the confidentiality aspects. All clients should be 100% convinced by the trainer that the confidentiality of the client will be met.

Ethical aspects of steroids

 

В  Ethical aspects of steroids

Steroids have always been a hot topic among us. No doubt, we show keen interest in finding out the logic and reason behind the utilization of these drugs, but have we ever thought of its ethical aspect? How these drugs have been used illegally and how are they impacting our youth? They are indeed destroying our youth’s morality and sanctity. I think that we are not so much concerned about this issue. Rather we keep on sticking on the subject of its severe effects on human health. In this article, I will mainly discuss the ethical aspect of steroids’ use.

In my opinion, those steroids are morally and ethically right to use that have been subscribed by a doctor to a patient for a medical reason. All other reasons are illegal and need to be revised. Steroid users give a number of logics to support their try of using steroids without authorized as well as medical reasons but they do not have solid grounds.В  They commonly wind up the topic by saying that it is their personal matter but do you think that they are right? If they are spoiling the whole culture, how can it be their personal matter?

First of all if the users of steroids are taking these drugs without any prescription, they are violating the laws as in United States, having steroids without prescription is illegal and punishable crime. It means that they are violating the ethics. If they are caught red handed, they would have to face punishment, and if they have been saved from outer agents, they would have to face internal feeling of guilt (that is even worse than the previous punishment).В 

Utilization of steroids in sports is banned now and if athletes are found guilty in dope tests, they have to lose their fame, wealth and good title. The pinching of their internal self for the violation of laws will be another punishment for them. In fact, steroids use is an act of cheating. Because of these drugs, anybody can achieve high ranks by showing extra-ordinary excellent performance. Especially in sports, the effect of steroids is remarkable. Perhaps that is the reason that many sportsmen neglect the ethical aspect and keep on using these drugs. They even do not care about their own health neither do they hassle about the authorized aspect of it. It is completely unfair advantage that they take and by doing this they split social agreement as well.

Now-a-days, new brands of steroids are being sold in markets that have anti-doping effects and can cheat dope tests. Many sportsmen now take these drugs and in this way they cheat their co-sportsmen as well as the higher authorities. They split the rules and violate the ethics. These sportsmen are the heroes and youth follow them blindly. Instead of teaching sportsmanship they are promoting cheating. Do you think that they are doing well? I believe that your answer would be in negative.В  Every sensible person would never want to be a cheater.

What this article said was basically the overall objective of becoming a personal trainer. You need to have a good realtionship with your client and need to have a plan in order to make their goals a reality. And in order to do so, you need to keep them motivated by getting them into the routine and keeping track of their results. Once they see change, they will be more inclined to keep going and to keep you around as their personal trainer.
