Why cheat?

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:37 PM

This article gives great insight into the codes of ethics for personal trainers.

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.
