While personal trainer is not on my bucket list, I do plan on working one on one with people who may have been injured in a sporting accident. This blog gave me a view of ethics that I may encounter in my future profession.

Matthew John Butcher's curator insight, May 18, 2014 9:19 PM

This article consists of six primary ethical codes that are all focused around being the ideal personal trainer.

Chris Perkins's curator insight, August 17, 2014 5:59 PM

This article takes the code of ethics from the IDEA and explains them. Very good article for anyone in the personal training industry.

Anti-doping testers fear reality of genetically modified Olympians

Anti-doping testers fear reality of genetically modified Olympians | sports facility management | Scoop.it

There have been "marathon mice", "Schwarzenegger mice" and dogs whose wasted muscles were repaired with injected substances that switch off key genes. It may not be long before we get the first genetically modified athlete. 

 

Some fear the use of gene therapy to improve athleticism is already a reality. But since sports authorities' drug testing methods still lack the sophistication needed to pick up gene doping, its status remains unclear. What is certain, from scientific studies and from surveys of elite sports people, is that it is technically feasible to use genetic modification to improve sporting performance, and that some athletes are prepared to risk their lives if they could be guaranteed to win gold medals. Officially, UK Anti-Doping, the body which oversees the control of performance enhancing drugs in Britain, says genetic manipulation as a form of performance enhancement "is currently a theoretical rather than a proven issue".

 

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) says it is ploughing "significant" money and resources into research into finding ways to detect genetic enhancement of athletes. 

Gene doping - in which DNA is introduced into the body using an inactivated virus or by other means - could alter a person's genetic make-up and improve athletic performance by increasing muscle growth, blood production, endurance, oxygen dispersal or pain perception. Since it cannot be detected, no one really knows whether athletes are using it or not.

Very well written article on the tradition of wishing opponents good luck and the understanding of an underlying respect for sport, each opponents commitment, and good sportsmanship.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:18 PM

Players need to have more sportsmanship because as much as players get traded, the player you just hurt could be your teammate next year. Respect is a big part of the game.

Pool-Maggedon Avoided?

David A. Firmin | Friday, March 16, 2012 | 

 

The March 15, 2012 compliance deadline for ADA pool compliance deemed "POOL-MAGGEDON" by industry insiders has been extended. In an unexpected but not surprising move given the public outcry against the revised pool access rules, President Obama ordered a 60 day stay on the implementation of the enforcement of pool rules that require all "places of public accommodation" to be accessible, see article...

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 6:58 PM

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

bryant tucker's curator insight, July 23, 2016 5:33 PM

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.
